The cottage had everything we needed and was cosy and clean. The beds were super comfy and we enjoyed making fires in the evening on the lovely cast iron fireplace.
Mrs Edgington

A cosy cottage, well presented furnishing-wise, fantastic views.
Mrs Connor

Tanderra Cottage overlooked Coniston Lake and the view was amazing. The Cottage felt like a home from home, it was clean, well equipped and very cosy. We hope to go back next year. Everything about our holiday was perfect.
Mr Lee

We loved the outlook from the cottage onto the lake and that it was just a few minutes walk from local shops and pubs/restaurants. An idyllic setting for a relaxing and also adventurous holiday!
Mrs Hunt

A clean & well kept property which enabled us to relax immediately. Fabulous views & location. The extra touches on arrival made it more special and felt welcome. The owner was a really nice friendly lady too. Can't fault a thing.
