We stayed at Rowan for two weeks in July 2023, myself and my husband have visited the Lake District many times over the last 25 years, staying all over the area in many types of accommodation.

Just had to write and say how impressed we are with the house – firstly the standard of cleaning is exceptional – you are lucky to have the lovely polite and informative cleaner who we saw when we overlapped today.

Secondly your fit, finish and attention to detail is the best we have seen and we take high end lettings every year all around the UK and Europe.

I think this will be a memorable stay! Thank you so much.


Having stayed here numerous times in the past, we recently had the pleasure of an extended stay in this wonderful holiday home. Rowan at Grasmere is a simply stunning, luxurious property in the centre of Grasmere village, but in a very private setting.

We’ve had a super family week together in a beautiful house with all ‘mod cons’ so well equipped and furnished – your detail to furnishing and supplying us with everything we needed – superb. Fantastic views – boys have loved the wild swimming!

Even the rain didn’t spoil our stay. The garden inspired me to tackle mine. Walking with Alpacas on the Lingholme Estate is a must for everyone to do.

Thank you; a house to visit again.


We absolutely loved your fabulous house here – stunning and truly felt like home – would love to visit again soon.


What a splendid week we have enjoyed (apart from the rain!) in your lovely home. It was so comfortable and you obviously have put a lot of thought and effort in the décor and equipment. May we give a special thanks to your housekeeper – it was immaculate. Also the garden was glorious, so well planned.

We will be back and will recommend.


What a beautifully appointed house in a stunning setting in a perfect location. We’ve enjoyed walking every day despite very miserable weather!


Great two weeks at your fab house and what a location, weather, walking, all good and relaxing in the garden in the evenings. Hope to be back soon and Thank you.

Thanks so much for creating such a fantastic holiday home, right in the centre of Grasmere. We have been looking for years to find a property of this standard and you have put so much hard work into this venture. We’ve had a wonderful break, with amazing weather – the walking was great.

We shall definitely be back! Thank you once again.

David, Val and Claire

Thank you so much for a week on your amazing home. We loved the comfort, all the modern tech and the wonderful fire! It’s definitely in the best part of the Lake District and the views are magnificent. We’ve had so much fun on the hills and on bikes up in the Forest, even though it rained so much!
We will miss everything and really hope to come back very soon!
