Lovely location with great potential
This cottage is set in beautiful surroundings and has huge potential but needs some updating. The bedrooms are large with good beds but the bedding needs renewing. The seating is great and there is a lovely log burner. General decor is a little tired and some kitchen appliances need upgrading. Having said that, we had a lovely stay and it was great to have a pool nearby. Issues we had were resolved quickly by great, friendly and helpful staff.

A very quiet peaceful cottage in the countryside where we were able to watch the stars as there was no light pollution. The swimming pool was absolutely spotless, a 10 minute walk along country lanes and a 2 minute drive away. It was a great house for a family. We were a short drive from many of the Lake District attractions.
