Book early to save any disappointment. This cottage is superbly equipped and well presented to provide a very comfortable holiday base, along with the very helpful host and set in an ideal location, it makes the prefect place to stay, for touring Cumbria. ,

We stayed at The Old Bothy with our children (5 & 8) during the Easter holidays. The standard of the accommodation is exceptional with the little touches really making it special - welcome basket with home baking, stoked log burner, soft toys on the children's beds...Holiday highlight was Martin and Joanne showing us around their farm and our children feeding the calves.

Faultless accommodation - beautifully converted barn with loads of character, space and everything you need for a family break. The owners, who run the attached dairy farm were fantastic and made our stay even better ! Would absolutely recommend it.

We both had a fantastic week at the Old Bothy.On arrival we found a welcome basket with fresh eggs, homemade bread and jam. The cottage is fully equiped and very comfortable. I would highly recommend staying here, a great place to recharge the batteries.The lakes are easily accessible and makes a perfect base for touring the area. The 4 dogs at the farm are the most friendly dogs you will meet. We hope to return soon.

The really warm welcome and the effort that the owner went to to ensure that we had everything we might need was really lovely.
