GREAT FACILITIES by Mr Millington, YORK, October 2016 on February 16th 2017
This cottage is in a wonderful setting giving breath taking views towards Coniston Water and the coast. It is very spacious and suited our party of 12 adults and 3 dogs really well. There is a huge amount of parking space- great as we had 6 cars between us. The rooms, both sitting rooms and bedrooms are of a really good size. There are plenty of bathroom facilities for a large party. There is a great boot room for leaving outdoor equipment. The property was well heated and warm throughout. There was a constant supply of hot water.We appreciated the large dining table as we could sit and eat an evening meal as a group of 12. It was nice to have three separate sitting areas so we could split in to smaller groups when we chose to do so. The twelve of us have been spending a week away together for a number of years, in different locations, and we have experienced a wide range of accommodation of very varying standards. Grofa Crag has been one of the best cottages we have used. We had a great holiday!
