Nestling in the shadow of the famous Lion and the Lamb and Helm Crag, 2 Town Head Cottages enjoys a most envious position in one of the Lake District’s much-loved villages. Built at the end of the 17th century, this traditional cottage is set among other farm buildings on the fringes of the village, just beyond the Traveller’s Rest, so enjoys wonderful views and a truly rural and unique holiday experience. The cottage offers comfortable, spacious accommodation and provides modern conveniences that combines well with the more traditional furnishings. The feature cast iron range in the living room is ideal for those colder evenings, the deep windowsills in the living room and bedrooms are just the spot for gazing out over sheep dotted fields to the village and fells beyond. Shop and restaurant 1½ miles. Pub 1 mile.

The cottage smelt of damp/dust and Nelect and was not worth the money I paid. We left early and didn’t stay the week.window sills outside we’re piled high with bird droppings.the kitchen was full of flies,wallpaper hanging off the ceiling. Bathroom was dirty I had to clean before using,this was disgraceful disgusting and the money I paid for a family holiday needs to be reimbursed. I am going to take this up with an official body the place should be closed down for refurbishment. I and my parents lived at Ghyll foot just down from town head cottage and know many local people there and I was informed too late about the bad reviews at this property.

Excellent location and distance from the village of Grasmere. The house was cold and be prepared to layer up on clothing. Problems with the kitchen sink which the owners need to repair as the plunger was used daily. One of the neighbours extremely rude to visitors. Ensure you read up thoroughly before arriving to the countryside rules!!. This did not put us off, however the owners need to be aware this may deter future holiday makers.
