We liked all of the property. The layout was excellent and the location was great with great views. We would look to stay again in the future.
Mr Roberts

Fantastic cottage with everything needed to make our break away perfect. We will certainly recommend to friends/family and will be back ourselves in the future. Ideally situated to explore The Lake District.
Mr Taylor

Gerand had everything and more you could want for a peaceful holiday, with plenty to do within easy reach.
Mr Cooper

The location was very good and the cottage had nice views. It was warm, cosy and nice to come back to after being out all day walking in the cold and snow. The free Wi-Fi was very good.
Mr Shipman

The whole cottage as a whole was outstanding to be honest. We felt at home as soon as we entered. It was cosy yet very modern. Me and my partner would definitely come back during the summer. We would recommend to everyone!
