A lovely cottage situated in a fabulous location with many original features preserved. The views down the valley are stunning. We would definitely stay here again.
Mrs Bayliss

I'm very familiar with the area and this cottage was in the perfect location to suit our needs. Nice attention to details with the decor downstairs (horse bits etc). Bedrooms a good size with comfortable mattresses and bedding. Plenty of hot water. Kitchen mostly very well equipped but could do with a big pan for boiling pasta! Lots of board games to keep the family entertained in the evenings (to the extent that we didn't switch the TV on once in 5 days). We didn't have any issues with cleanliness - no cobwebs or dust and bedding and towels smelt fresh. However, very disappointed with the wood burner. It doesn't pull. Read the instruction manual, went through 2 packets of firelighters but it kept going out. The only way to keep it lit was to keep the door wide open, but no fireguard provided. Also, the living room could do with a bit more lighting as it was very dim at night. Apart from that, we had a lovely and comfortable stay.

Fantastic cottage, absolutely perfect for our purposes and ideal for exploring the lakes. It was really warm and cosy, clean and convenient. Well catered for in the kitchen. The bed was really comfy and shower was good.
Miss Turner

Big rooms, comfy beds, 2 ensuites. Pleasant sitting room. Quiet rural location but access to the whole southern lakes district.
Mr Roberts

The cottage was full of character and was both cosy & comfortable. The setting was gorgeous - I loved not hearing any noise at night and taking my dogs for peaceful walks each morning on the lush hillsides behind the cottage. We found it very conveniently situated for exploring the Lakes. Our dogs had just as good a holiday as we did!
