“Quiet, Relaxing and Comfortable”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This cottage is well appointed and everything is quite new. Lovely comfortable bed and the home had everything we needed. Loved the heated floors! Nice table on the patio where we had lunch on a warm sunny day in September! Lovely gardens with a picnic table and a pond. Close to downtown Carlisle and on the path everyone walks for Hadrian's Wall where you can walk if you want. Our hosts met us and we're very friendly and helpful. Would recommend and certainly stay here again.

“Characteristic, peaceful cottage on a quiet but central location”
Reviewed 9 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Robin Cottage is a characteristic yet modern cottage located 15 minutes from a massive ASDA supermarket and 30 minutes from Carlisle which is a lovely city offering cosy shops and lunchrooms. The cottage offers everything you need and is really clean and up-to-date. Thank you for a wonderful stay Raphaela and Steve, we enjoyed our evening tea with you!

“Delightful accommodation in a most beautiful part of England”
Reviewed 24 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This is a superbly modernised and charming place. Our hostess could not have been more helpful and accommodating, Boustead Hill is a small hamlet with commanding views over the Solway marshes, within easy reach of Carlisle and Dumfrieshire and half an hour from the Lake Disrict. 'Robin' provides an ideal centre from which to explore the fascinating history of this area. It is equipped with all that you need for a holiday, including warmth if it turns cold. Wi-fi is weak, but our hostess was able to help us with it, and it is easily accessed in pubs in the neighbourhood. A stay here is highly recommended!

“Nice cottage in a picturesque hamlet”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The cottage is located in the small hamlet of Bousted Hill, which is only a 15-minute drive from Carlisle. It is very small, so be prepared that there are no amenities in walking distance. But that was no problem for us. We loved the idyllic atmosphere in the sweet cottage which is newly renovated and very well equipped. The bathroom is very spacious, there is a big walk-in shower. The living-room has two big entrace doors, so there is a lot of light coming in during the day. There is a new open kitchen in the living room. We also loved the underfloor heating ;-) Raphaela and Steve were the most friendly hosts. They welcomed us with tea and whisky and we appreciated to have several chats with them. There is a huge, beautiful garden with curious and nice hens who are willing to join you if you leave the door open... If you love a natural setting and hide from the city life, it's a perfect place to stay. We loved it and will definetely recommend it.

“Compact accommodation, friendly host, appealing location on the Solway.”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our host Steve was helpful and friendly. The cottage is small and stylish, but equipped with the minimum of requirements for a week-long stay. Equipment we had become used to during our tour of Scotland - freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, mirrors outside the bathroom - are lacking here. We managed of course. We were able to use the freezer in the main house and there is at least one efficient laundry in Carlisle. The location is beautiful, historic and well placed for exploring the Solway Coast, Hadian's Wall and even the Lake District.
