Our Cottages

We are very sorry to let you know that the Goody Bridge Holiday Cottages in Grasmere are closed until further notice due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. It is with a heavy heart that we do this, but the health of our staff, customers and local community is our top priority.


Thank you to all the customers who have transferred their deposits to future stays, as this has been a huge help to us and will ensure our staff employment when this is over.

We will honor all existing bookings when we can, but we will offer to refunds or to transfer any deposits on bookings for stays before and including the 14th of June to a future stay within 12 months of the original arrival date. We will extend this depending on how the situation evolves, please see our website for up to date information.

We are hoping to be able to open our doors and welcome you all to the Lakes again soon and we are very grateful for your continued support and understanding in these difficult times.

If you would like to get in touch, please email us on as our office will be closed from Wednesday, 25th March 2020.

Wishing you good health and we hope to see you again soon.

In the idyllic village of Grasmere, we have three characterful, stone built Lakeland cottages available for holiday let.

Goody Bridge Cottage (sleeps two), Goody Bridge Barn (sleeps four) and Goody Bridge Farm House (sleeps 9) have been refurbished with your comfort in mind, with thoughtful homely touches to make your stay as relaxing as possible.

The Barn and the Cottage both have luxurious double beds, Goody Bridge Farm House will comfortably sleep nine, with three luxurious double beds, one twin and one single bedroom. All have fully furnished kitchens and comfortable living spaces with fire places. We have free car parking and Wifi available.

We will accept a maximum of 2 well behaved dog per property at an additional charge per dog, however, we ask that the access is limited to downstairs only in Goody Bridge Farm.

The cottages are the perfect holiday spot all year round, cosy in the winter and perfect for enjoying the peaceful surroundings in the summer weather. Goody Bridge nestles beneath the famous Fairfield Horseshoe at the foot of Easedale Valley and has many popular walks right on its doorstep, including Hellvellyn, Silver How and Helm Crag. We are also only a short walk from Rydal Water and the old slate mining caves and the Old Coffin Trail. From Goody Bridge, it is only a short walk into the village of Grasmere.

The village of Grasmere is the perfect peaceful holiday destination right in the Heart of the Lake District National Park, surrounded on all sides by stunning scenery and views. Grasmere boasts a selection of great pubs and restaurants and has its share of Lakeland history, being home to the famous poet William Wordsworth and the widely known traditional Grasmere Gingerbread. It is the ideal base for a holiday, with easy access to the whole of the National Park either by car or the nearby bus service.

We lived at Goody Bridge Farm House for 30 years, bringing up our 3 now grown up children. We have been letting Goody Bridge Cottage for over 20 years and Goody Bridge Barn since 1993. Now that we have moved out of Goody bridge Farm House we have decided to make our much loved family home available for letting from April 2016.

We require a 30% deposit per property (which is non-refundable) to confirm a booking and the balance is payable 2 weeks prior to your arrival.


We are experiencing lots of phone calls regading covid-19, please email if possible. We appreciate your consideration.

Temporary Terms and conditions
In regard to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are monitoring the official guidance from the local government and health authorities about travel within the United Kingdom and from abroad. We are also looking at how big travel agencies are reacting to updates from the government. We will obviously amend our policies as the situation evolves.

We have decided to amend our cancellation policy for those that have booked directly with us. We will offer to transfer any deposits on bookings for stays before and including the 17th of May, to a future stay within 12 months of the original arrival date. We will extend this depending on how the situation evolves.

If we can, we are intending to stay open and honour all of our bookings. In the event that we are forced to close we would refund your deposit as stated in our terms and conditions.

Our normal cancellation policy as set out in our terms and conditions is as follows:

Normal Cancellation Policy
Once you have booked your stay, our agreement is a legal contract and any deposit you may have paid is non-refundable. If you need to cancel please contact us immediately. For cancellations or modifications made up to 1 week before your booking you will not be liable for the total balance. For cancellations or modifications made after this time or by failing to take up the booking without cancelling you will be liable for the total amount.

We would only cancel your booking if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control. We would attempt to offer you alternative accommodation, however if this was not possible, or unacceptable to you, then we would refund all monies paid by you. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.
