Mr Hammond

We had a super week in the beautiful Lake District. So much to see and do with our 5 year old daughter from visits to National Trust properties to walking and a must do is the treetop trees!
Mrs Wain

The hot tub is a brilliant feature and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Overall an excellent cottage.
Mr Manson

We found the cottage extremely cosy and comfortable. It was well equipped, easy to find and the hot tub was a real treat! The location was just great - a short walk to the village and a little bit off the beaten track, with lots of walking and the lake so close.
Mrs Scrutton

"The owner ensured that we had everything we needed and more. Being on a farm was fabulous; so interesting and entertaining. The lambs in particular, were hilarious. We were never disturbed as we couldn't hear a thing once the doors are closed."
Mrs Hackney
