“Lovely stay, & dog friendly too!”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Glen Cottage is a lovely little ground floor apartment which is part of three rentals at an old farmhouse. The setting is fabulous, with gorgeous fell views all around & it's up in the Northern Lakes which both my husband and I think is the best bit of The Lake District.

The cottage has been finished to a high standard, and in some ways almost too smart to be a real cosy cottage. But you've got to say that the underfloor heating in the bathroom was a real treat! When we arrived there were one or two minor issues with bits that needed mending. They didn't get done during our stay, but the owner did ring to explain once we'd arrived and it really didn't affect our stay.

We'd chosen Glen Cottage partly because it was dog friendly and we were taking our young dog with us, and it certainly lived up to this claim. He enjoyed his stay, whether wandering around the shared garden (meeting the neighbour's dogs), or crashing out in front of the log burner. Little touches like the long rope in the garden to allow them to wander without roaming too far were appreciated.

We ate in a couple of nights, and the kitchen was well equipped to meet our needs. On one night we ventured out to the local Troutbeck Inn which we would also highly recommend - we advise booking in advance.

Overall we'd certainly recommend Glen Cottage and would stay again. The only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars are just the minor niggles mentioned above and that, for total peace, I wouldn't want to hear the neighbouring holiday makers moving around their properties - which you can do in Glen Cottage.
