An excellent accommodation, in a beautiful setting. The cottage was very comfortable and spacious. Possibly the most comfortable bed we have ever had in a rented property! Great to be able to get logs on site and the swimming pool was wonderful for either a quiet swim or to take the kids. We would certainly look to book there again as the area is superb for getting out and about.
Mr Budd

Fabulous cottage and location. Very well equipped and very clean. Plenty of healthy walks in local area for us and the dogs.
Mrs Ashton

Top notch accommodation in a glorious setting. The Lake District is a must see in people's lifetimes!
Mrs Dick

Lovely spacious cottage with everything we needed for our stay. The kids loved the pool and table tennis table when we had a rainy day. Well worth paying extra for the welcome food pack from the Honeypot.
Mrs Brown

The location, cottage and surrounding environment is stunning.
