Wythburn Cottage is beautiful and fully appointed, with a lovely welcome basket treat! The cottage is perfect for 3 adult couples, sometimes one will stay in and rest in lovely surroundings, at times we would all go out to investigate local gardens , hikes and the Lakes. No bad days! Thank you, Charles and Christine for your discerning attention to detail. These folks really know what they're doing! We can't say enough about the high standards of the Rowley Estates

“Wonderful stay at Wythburn!”
Reviewed 18 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We had a lovely, relaxing stay at Wythburn Cottage. Christine & Jilly were both so helpful prior to & during our trip & responded very quickly to any e-mails. The cottage is very clean (difficult to find when doggies are involved!) & it has all the home comforts, utensils, pans, trays etc that you would need. The lovely thing about this cottage is not only do you receive a wonderful welcome hamper, full of local produce, there is also washing up liquid, washing up sponge, toilet roll, dishwasher tabs, kitchen rolls, soap - all the small things you usually have to buy when self catering - this is a really nice touch. The grounds are lovely & there is a nice enclosed area for the dogs to have a wonder & do their business. It's lovely & quiet & we had a nice leisurely stroll to the village pub. There are so many places within a short drive, it is an ideal location. Would definitely recommend.

“Absolutely stunning accommodation in a beautiful setting.”
Reviewed 1 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Exceptional accommodation really atmospheric restored barn building.The hamper provided for us was very generous with fruit,fresh coffee,sweets,biscuits and a bottle of wine.In addition the fridge was stocked with milk.orange juice butter,cheese etc.
The bedrooms were very comfortable and the en suites were very clean and smelt lovely.
There was a brilliant touch in that the dining table converted into a pool table which was enjoyed by the whole family.
The kitchen was very well stocked with a comprehensive collection of utensils crockery and cutlery and glassware even including champagne flutes.
Just one comment some beer glasses please for our next visit.

Hi, thank you for leaving such a lovely review following your recent stay at Wythburn Cottage. We are delighted your son made his first snowman whilst staying at Wythburn Cottage and you made some lovely memories to treasure!

We will pass on you lovely comments to our team. We would love to welcome you all back again to The Rowley Estates when you are planning another trip to Cumbria and the Lake District.

“Beautiful house in Lake District”
Reviewed 5 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We were a party of 6 and stayed to celebrate the New Year. The house was fabulous proving comfort and every amenity you could wish for. The accommodation was extremely clean and a lovely welcome hamper was provided by the owners. A really nice extra touch. The location is great. Off a quiet lane but near enough to Penrith if needed.
Lovely walks were the order of the day ( in the snow in the first full day!)

We would return and thoroughly recommend to anyone wishing to spend some quality time in Cumbria.
