It was peaceful, well maintained and within easy driving distance to all of the Lake District.
Mrs Campbell

We loved how tucked away the location was, yet at the same time it is only a moments drive to some pretty spectacular lakes and historic landmarks. It suited our hiking plans and the dog to a tee. It was quiet, cosy and relaxing and the hosts were very considerate.
Miss Winter

The cottage was a lovely place to return to after a day of work. The downstairs bedroom was very quiet and I slept very soundly.
Mr Sundquist

Loved the sights and sounds of being on a working farm - the cows, bull, sheep, and the farmer hard at work all hours of the day! Loved the view from the cottage and loved exploring the western lake/coast area. Loved returning to a comfy bed and good shower.
Mr Atkinson

A completely relaxing holiday amid a working farm environment, although this wasn't reflected in the amount of noise and disturbance evident. It was a peaceful and very tranquil setting. The owner was extremely sociable and helpful. As usual a very nice holiday, may return.
Mr Eldon
