Welcome to The Groom’s Cottage, a cosy and luxurious retreat for two. Here you will find the perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy all that the Lake District has to offer.

Set in the courtyard of The Coach House, once part of The Old Rectory, with its own walled garden, the cottage would originally have been home to the Groomsman who was in charge of the Rectory stables.

Now it offers a charming mix of modern day living and traditional character with its own unique furnishings and personal touches.


"Little did we know when we were presented with a beautifully wrapped box at Christmas we were being given a little oasis of calm. The Groom’s Cottage is a delightful stone cottage in a peaceful courtyard. It has been sympathetically restored mixing the best of modern design with elegance and comfort that is befitting. Lovely touches will appeal to walkers, maps and a set of Wainwright books to plan that extra walk you will want to cram in, especially after eating Debs cake! Only 11 miles or so from Keswick, ideally based for walks in the Lakes and the surrounding fells near Uldale. Groom’s Cottage is a little haven to return to where you can relish the peace and quiet, broken by the odd hoot from an owl, or after a tiring day it’s a stones throw to a lovely tea room or the welcoming Snooty Fox for a chat and a pint. For us it’s not far away, but it felt like a million miles and a wonderful few days to recharge away from the hustle and bustle. Looking forward to staying again. "
