“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed 25 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed here for two nights. This cottage was perfect. Extremely clean, very modern but with a traditional look. Everything we needed was there. Lovely comfortable bed and very powerful shower and most of all, the cottage was warm which was needed as the weather was freezing! Short drive from Penrith and Keswick which is a beautiful place! Nicky the owner was very pleasant and helpful, we would love to return in summer!

“Fantastic base for nearby Lakeland walks”
Reviewed 3 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

My wife and I spent three nights in the cottage over New Year. As our reviewers have remarked it is in immaculate condition and has all the facilities/amenities you could need. It was clear that Nicky and Tony have a real attention to detail and we felt at home instantly and we were loathe to head back south after a few excellent days.

While not in the National Park itself, we were a short drive (c 20 mins) from the starting spots for walks in the Northern and Eastern Fells and the surrounding countryside around Skelton provides beautiful scenery in its own right. We would thoroughly recommend it and hope to return in the near future.

“Genuine home away from home”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for a week in late August and the cottage is perfectly located as a base to explore from. Short drives to the Lakes, Hadrians Wall, Carlisle and Penrith (for food shopping). Located close to the C2C cycle route (with national routes 7 and 71 close by).

It is a immaculately presented and spotless holiday cottage with all the possible amenities that you could need which represented extremely good value for the price I paid. The cottage is a perfect combination of contempary and traditional. Full fitted kitchen, with dishwasher. Utility/washroom with washing machine. Shower room and bath. Comfortable and light lounge with TV, DVD and Netflix (for those wet evenings). Fast WiFi throughout the cottage.

Nicky is a perfect host. She greeted us on arrival to explain the cottage and facilities as well as provide some local information and suggestions of walks. Nicky provided us with a welcome pack of a bottle of wine, snacks, milk, tea, coffee and ginger biscuits. There is also the "brown basket" full of tourist leaflets, walks and other information.

The Dog and Gun pub is next door - we didn't eat there but had a very friendly welcome and enjoyed a pint or two sat outside soaking up the last of the evening sunshine watching the Swallows, House Martins and Jackdaws battle it out for air supremacy !

Nicky took the time to explain some walks for us including the Ullswater Steamer walks which are stunning. Pooley Bridge is a short drive away. Plenty of parking in the field just past/behind the Sun Inn for £3 all day (look for the hand written signs by the roadside), catch the "steamer" to Howtown and walk back. The walk is featured in a print out in the brown basket.

We will very much look forward to retuning sometime soon.

“Beautiful, comfy and perfect”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A lovely 3 night stay in this beautiful cottage in the little village of Skelton just outside of Penrith.

A surprise booking for my other half for his birthday - a great little find for a relaxing break! The cottage is beautiful - furnished and decorated to a high standard, but in keeping with the cottage's rustic look. Clean and tidy - couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay.

The cottage is well equipped with a full kitchen, TV, lovely bathroom and even a washing machine! There are board games and books if you don't fancy the TV. The bed is probably the most comfy I have ever stayed in (aside from my own bed at home!).

The village is really quiet - but not too far away from Carlise, Penrith and Keswick if you want to get back to the hustle and bustle of people. It's a 15 minute drive from the Center Parks if you fancy treating yourself to a Spa day there (we did - very nice!). The pub in the village (which is literally 100 yards from the cottage!) is really nice too - good food and nice people.

Nicky the owner made us feel very welcome (tea, coffee milk and even some ginger snaps waiting for us!). Lovely lady with a lovely property.

Would definitely come back and stay here again.

“Perfect retreat”
Reviewed 17 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at The Coach House in the pretty village of Skelton 7 - 9 June.

Nicky, the owner was very helpful and eager to ensure we enjoyed our holiday asking us what we like to do and what kind of food we might like etc. guiding us in the right direction.

The cottage itself is spotless and beautiful and has been lovingly renovated to a very high standard.
As we were only there for a couple of days we didn't cook preferring to eat out but if we had been there for longer everything was there that you would ever need to cook and enjoy the facilities to the full.

We had beautiful weather which is always a bonus.

We went into Pulley Bridge which is a lovely little town on Ullswater enjoying a visit to the waterfall nearby. Penrith itself is also worth a visit with its quirky Squares shopping centre.

We enjoyed a meal in the local pub in Skelton which is a little dated and only open certain hours, but the owners are very friendly and we enjoyed what we chose to eat. I have learnt not to judge a book by its cover!

The Boot and Shoe in a nearby village was also very good and definitely worth the short drive.

This little gem of a cottage is a short drive to the beautiful lake district and is an excellent base to explore. You will definitely need a car to enjoy the area.

It was our wedding anniversary during our stay and that morning a bottle of Prosecco and a lovely card were left on the doorstep. Much appreciated by us. A lovely gesture by Nicky and Anthony (the owners)

As I explained to Nicky - I only had one complaint..... our stay wasn't long enough!
