Excellent holiday home tucked away in a lovely secluded spot
This is more than a cottage. There is plenty of space for the nine people that can be accommodated. All of the rooms were well presented, clean and very comfortable. The view from the master bedroom en-suite across the fields and into the far distance is amazing. The cottage is well equipped to cater for all the needs we required. Instruction manuals for all appliances were provided - saving having to guess how to use various appliances, such as the cooker, microwave, washing machine etc. There was nothing the owners had not thought of, down to spare bulbs and batteries in case they were needed. This is not something that all owners provide. Local areas of beauty are in easy driving distance - Appleby, Maulds Meaburn, Windermere, UIllswater etc. There were many maps and current information leaflets provided. The owner left us to enjoy our holiday, but was on hand if there was anything we needed. We enjoy this no nonsense, no fuss approach to holiday rental and applaud the owners for trusting their visitors with their asset. The only negative was that we did not see any red squirrels while we were there, but I'm sure that if the owners thought that they could arrange this too they would have done. Well done Alison, Elizabeth and the team.

Very clean lovely spacious property; great for two families. Great location for The Lakes and walks around property.

Beautiful! The bedding and towels were neat and clean and it was very well equipped. It was so easy to get around and sightsee. It was peaceful. Perfect, one of the best houses we have ever stayed in. Thank you for having us.

Super property in a super location
We chose Town Head for our annual gathering of four friends. The property slept 9, and so we had great difficulty deciding which of the double bedrooms we should each have: two are en-suite and two share a bathroom with bath and shower. So much choice. A huge place with acres of space inside and out. As organiser I was pleased to see how well equipped the kitchen and utility areas were and how clean everything was. The bedding and towels were spotless. A lovely peaceful location where we were able to have coffee and cakes outside in the sunshine. The large kitchen with adjoining living area made the evenings very sociable, and we didn?t have to resort to lighting a fire [even though there was a little snow around] as the heating was very efficient. Only a few minutes from the village of Shap where you can pick up food and papers. Visit the Charity shop, caf?, fish shop, church and garden centre. Also take the road down to Shap Abbey. Only 10 minutes from the M6 and easy access to the Eden valley to the East and the Lakes to the West. It?s one of the best houses we have ever stayed in ? thank you for having us.

This cottage was perfect for a family holiday with grandparents, with plenty of room and a huge garden for the children to play in and the added bonus of spotting red squirrels! We had a fantastic week despite the weather, the large utility room was kept busy! We hope to return again soon.
