The cottage was great, very spacious and clean with a lovely d?cor and an amazing garden that we enjoyed a drink in in the evenings after our walks. The cottage was well equipped and we just loved the wet room. It had plenty of games, dvds and books too. In an excellent location to Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside with plenty of places to eat out, as well as being well situated for our planned walks from the Kirkstone Pass, Nanny Lane and Ings Lane. All in all we had a great week, made more so by the excellent accommodation and the glorious weather.
