Relaxing break away from it all. Hot tub an added bonus. A great place to unwind in a secluded location. Recommended for those who don't want to go far but enjoy the river walks and woodlands. Carlisle and Gretna an easy drive for a shopping fix.
This gorgeous log cabin sits in the most wonderful country setting overlooking a river, with private fishing rights and amazing bird life. The house is thoughtfully and beautifully designed yet very comfortable for casual lounging inside the house or outside on the surrounding deck. The kitchen and baths are well supplied and the amenities are first rate. My husband and I and the dogs had a terrifically fun week exploring the nearby walking paths, as well as the Lake District, and a challenging but glorious cliff side ramble at St. Bees. Be aware that there is no internet coverage on the property which (if you can manage it) is a blessing - it gave us so much more time to enjoy everything. And it must be noted that Simon is a most generous host. This was a great holiday.
Yes it looks as good as the pictures! I booked this for my 40th with 3 friends and it certainly made my birthday. I needed to swop the date due to something cropping up and Dominique was amazing from start to finish. Yes she didn't always reply straight away but none the less she was contactable and was a pleasure to talk to. She has a business a family she doesn't sit at her iPad 24/7 but she sorted out my dilemma without any hassle. The place is stunning, nice and quiet location, amazing view, perfect place to unwind and relax. Don't take food, there is a huge spa 15 mins away as you turn off that has everything. There are DVD's to watch or take your own. Books to read but limited selection but if you have spare take them and leave them. No wifi or phone signal but if you walk up the drive, turn left and walk to the corner up the hill it all appears, just needs a seat at the top of the hill!!!! Lovely walks, friendly locals, perfect. I personally wouldn't take my 5 year old as no wifi and she wouldn't appreciate it but if you have someone special or fancy a few days break from kids and hubby with the girls then get it booked. The hot tub just adds to the place. It's all under cover so if it rains like it did with us we still sat out on the balcony and ate as it was warm. Enough seating for 4, all kitchen things supplied, towels, robes, slippers. You really do get looked after. Rooms are perfect and nicely decorated. 2 toilets enough seating and big sofas so we didn't feel on top of each other. We went into Gretna to the shopping outlet which was fab and perfect for our girlie break! We are already planning next years. My deposit was refunded within 24 hours. Lovely place, lovely owners, what you waiting for.......enjoy!!!! X
A wonderful 6 days that became 7. Its is that good!
No mobile reception, no internet, no excuses. We all had a truly great time here from the hot tub to wading in the river. The kids never once complained about being unable to use their iPads / tablets and instead built rafts out of sticks and reeds.
Don't really want to say more as i would prefer it kept quiet so that its available next time we book!
Thanks again Dom and Simon
