The cottage was lovely and had everything you needed. The views were amazing. It was such a lovely place, will be returning again.
Mrs Eves

We loved the beautiful view from our cottage and the quiet atmosphere, without being too far from town.
Mrs Finlayson

A very well equipped cottage with amazing views over lake Windermere. It was very quiet and relaxing, and the bed was very comfy. Would highly recommend!
Mr Dyer

A fantastic little cottage, although compact it had absolutely everything we needed. A beautiful location, very peaceful and tranquil. Absolutely loved it.
Mrs Lamont

The cottage was comfortable and warm, with wonderful views across Lake Windermere to the fells beyond. The kitchen, though small, was well-equipped with everything we needed. The main bedroom was comfortable with plenty of storage space. We were able to do the trip without a car, as the cottage was close to the rail station and good bus services, and there was also much to see and do within walking distance. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.
