“Excellent cottage, well equipped and in lovely peaceful location.”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Lovely, well equipped cottage in a quiet, peaceful location.
Ideally situated for our dog, with good local walks from the door.
Well situated for The Lakes or the beautiful town of Kirkby Lonsdale. A gem of a place.

“Loved our stay in the Hen House”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Just back from a lovely holiday in your cottage. It was exactly what we were expecting. So cute and everything we needed. So homely and clean and welcoming. Would recommend a stay in your home to anyone. Nice and central for attractions in the Lakes.Loved the chickens also.

“Great wee holiday!”
Reviewed 21 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Went down here with a few friends and had a great time! A short drive away from the nearest supermarket and near all the things we wanted to do. Place was really clean and the decor was really cute and homey. Also the shower was amazing which was an added bonus! Would love to know where it was from! Would definitely come back here and could not recommend enough! We only met the people who owned it once briefly but they were super polite and friendly!
Only thing was there was no wifi but that wasn't a problem as we weren't expecting any but thought it was worth noting incase you expect some. :)

Thanks for the great review and super-pleased you had a good time. I can't honestly remember where the shower was from, might have been plumb center but it's definitely a power shower :-)

“Great place to stay - very clean and comfortable”
Reviewed 1 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This was a lovely little cottage, well equipped and comfortable.

The owner welcomed our three dogs and the fresh eggs were a nice touch!
