“The Perfect Cumbrian Cottage”
Reviewed 3 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A stunning position looking South across Rolling Open Countryside towards Geltsdale on the horizon. A characterful cottage with an open fire and an immediate sense of home. Then there is the practicalities. With a family of four and a dog to feed the kitchen is well up to it. A boot room for the coats and walking shoes and toddler equipment, crockery is good quality and plentiful, the kitchen utensils and equipment enough to cook a large family meal and there are two separate rooms for either showering or a bath. We went out walking on many trails just outside the door or twenty minutes away. Hadrain's Wall (Three sections) Talkin Tarn, Gelt Wood, and a circular track in the lee of Geltsdale. All with good signage and stunning quiet locations or gently family friendly.

I cooked every night and had a Waitrose drop for the big shop and then fresh vegetables (Fruits and Roots), fresh bread (Routledges) Organic (Wholefoods) and superb meat from (Cranstons) all in Brampton. The people all real (quiet and friendly) Geordie/Cumbrians. The Co Op cleverly covers the supermarket base with upmarket offerings as well as the basics. The weather was perfect all week after a poor summer but the cottage would work after a cold and windy day walking just as much as an end of day to an Indian Summer. Your hosts Mr & Mrs Harding run a well oiled operation and you arrive to fresh flowers/fresh scones with cream and jam and the chance to have a cuppa before you unload. Congratulations on a superb offer.

“Absolutely stunning”
Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a perfect place to base your visit to the wall and the lakes. Photos do not do this place justice. Not only is it quaint and quiet but it has everything you need including evening entertainment. (You are in the middle of knowhere) Elizabeth was welcoming and had left some essentials for us so a cup of tea could be had before going in search of food. The place was clean and tidy, with sheets and towells provided whi h is always a bonus. Many places are walkable and carlise is only a short drive away. I wish I could have stayed longer.
