“Ideal for disabled visitors and/or those with dogs!”

I was truly amazed with this beautiful cottage. The welcome we were given was very good, and the owners Pauline and Marion went out of their way to help us. The welcoming basket was a joy! Home made bread, jam and a flapjack bigger than I have seen before! With home produced honey, freshly laid eggs - double yolks! and butter!. The dogs were also very well looked after with two bowls each, on stands and mats, towels, poo bags and treats each!
My daughter is profoundly disabled and we took a chance here as their accessibility statement does not cover wheelchairs but we couldn't have hoped for better! They provided a ramp up the two steps into the cottage and when I realised that my hoist would not go under the bed they built two plinths and lifted the bed!!!
The views from the cottage are wonderful, Cumbria at its best. Although this seems out of the way and very peaceful, and it is, it is also within easy driving of many places to visit. Best of both worlds!
We will be going back again!!
Thank you

“Great Location, Smart accommodation”
Reviewed 5 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

The location of the property is set within beautiful countryside not far from the town of Cockermouth. The cottage itself was clean, modern and comfy. It had ample amenities and access to a games room for leisure.

The owners were friendly and helpful, and we were made to feel welcome. Pets are allowed and they have facilities for them (such as an outdoor shower for dogs etc).

The only thing that wasn't so good were the directions found on the TripAdvisor website as these do not make it clear where to go. The actual website directions for the cottage provide good and clear instructions of how to find your way there.

Overall a pleasant stay and we would happily go there again.

My wife and I stayed at this cottage from the 16th to the 23rd of may 2015.
The cottage was spotlessly clean and well presented. The owner Pauline and daughter Marion gave us a really warm welcome. On entering the cottage there was other than the usual coffee and tea etc:- but also a home made loaf and half a dozen fresh eggs.
We would definitely recommend this family run holiday to anyone who wants a quiet getaway from the rat race. To contact look on the web you will not be disappointed.
