We've been to Heads Nook Cottage before, but this time returned with young children/extended family (my sister and I and our two young girls aged 3 years and 6 months). Was lovely arriving and knowing that it's a real home from home - fruit cake with tea/coffee/milk greeted us on arrival, a spotlessly clean and well equipped base with which to meet up with family and explore the local area.
Perfect place for young family because
- all on one level (no stairs, stair gates etc)
- well equipped kitchen (all you need - dishwasher, oven, microwave and plenty of crockery)
- separate laundry room (washing machine and tumble dryer - necessity for kids!)
- bath and not just a shower (again ideal for mucky kids)
This is my third visit and I know we will be back again. It's just so convenient and yet we are not compromising on quality just because we travel with young kids.
This is an amazing little cottage, we booked to attend a wedding. It was our first trip away with our 4 month old and couldn't have asked for more. Cot and highchair avaliable for the baby as well as a very comfortable living space.
Kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Full use of a utility room which was needed with a baby, they even provided washing powder and softener.
The set up is great, we had 4 adults and a baby in the cottage for a week. Lots of space and not on top of each other like some places we had stayed previously without a baby.
We were greeted with home made scones and flexible check in (kept Malcom in loop of when we expected to arrive via email). Great leisure facilities just down the road too. Great location will definitely be returning. Xx
Couldn't fault the place. The cottage had everything we needed and was very cosy and romantic. The location is driving distance from most places but that's why we stayed there. We will be returning.
Just stayed at Heads Nook Hall Cottage for a couple of nights. One of our first trips away with our young daughter (11 months) and we stayed here to visit family nearby. The cottage is amazing - a real home from home. Everything you want is here (fully equipped kitchen, separate utility, cosy lounge with large TV and cosy fire and luxury bathroom). We had a wonderful time and would definitely return.
Malcolm was friendly and helpful throughout the booking process (highchair and cot available for the baby) and Mandy the housekeeper was very welcoming (and left us milk in the fridge and home made scones on arrival).
Great location just outside Carlisle and easy to reach the surrounding countryside and The Lakes. Just can't fault it. Thank you!
Decided to book the cottage for my 50th last June after we had stayed in the main house overnight, we loved that room and the way we were treated so we thought let's book the cottage for my big one.
Not dissapointed at all, everything that has already been said in comment previous is true, we wanted for nothing.
We are now going to check our work commitments and book for a week in September , three days was not enough.
Has usually malcolm and Mandy were perfect hosts with nothing a problem even down to ringing around the pubs to find who had the man utd Liverpool game on, with the right result rounding off a fabulous birthday.
Thank you again heads nook for being the best. Paul and Pam x
