“Breath taking!”
Reviewed 9 August 2017 for a stay in September 2016

Myself and my husband stayed here in September 2016. It was beautiful a great location to access the lakes we visited so many that we needed another holiday, the cottage was well equipped like home from home lovely and clean and warm, we watched the birds from the kitchen in the mornings. We lit the fire in the evenings, super cosy. The bed was really comfy with lovely bedding. The garden was beautiful with far stretching views there was a Booths supermarket a 10 min drive down the road. We had excellent weather during our stay very lucky. The host Barbara was lovely and knowledgeable there were a great selection of guides in the cottage (great for lake district first timers).

“Perfect all-round cottage for The Lakes!”
Reviewed 11 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Started with a great welcome by the lovely owner, who gave us a full tour and explained how to use everything (where the heating controls were etc).
The cottage is a lovely, homely place with enough space to have a comfortable evening in. The cottage also has a beautiful garden which has views for miles over valleys and hills.
It's in a perfect location to explore all the Lakes, but especially all the South Lakes attractions with nothing more than 30mins drive away.
Lovely pub only 30mins walk - well worth the walk!!
Definitely want to go back!
