A hidden gem
Myself, my wife and our two dogs stayed here, first week in October 2021. The owners are fantastic and very helpful, the cottage is well presented and clean. The log burner was great to have on at night and the under floor heating was great for the dogs. The owners allow you wander around the farm and if you want to you can go and see the cows being milked. The Raw milk from here is amazing and so very fresh, the chickens, goats, cows and brucie (our nickname for him) the bull. Whilst we were there we seen squirrels, deers, rabbits, pheasants and buzzards. This is a very quiet location and allows you to relax. Also Dalston is well worth a visit if you have dogs or you want supplies.

Simply amazing
Myself and my partner (and 2 dogs) stayed here at the end of October as a last minute get away. Arriving to a bottle of wine, fresh fruit, chocolate cookies and milk was a fantastic touch after a 2 hour drive! The cottage was beautifully clean, warm and homely throughout our stay. And the owner(s) couldn?t do enough for us throughout, despite following COVID-19 measures. It was a brilliant experience to stay on a working dairy farm and such welcoming, pleasant farmers. It is a great base to drive to many fells, lakes and dog walks and there are 3 lovely walks around the farm. There are dog walks from the farm however we didn?t experience these due to the wet weather. After long, wet day's walking our dogs it was great to dry off in front of a log burner, with heated floor and enjoying a ginormous bath! There are plenty of pubs nearby if you don't mind driving but being tucked away in a little cottage, with a self-sufficient kitchen was all we needed. I will be recommending to me family and friends and will certainly come back soon! Such great value for money.

Beautiful cottage perfect location fully equipped
Lovely weekend at Nuthatch cottage with our two dogs. The cottage had everything you could think of and was so comfortable and spotlessly clean. The welcome wine, milk and fruit was a lovely gesture. The cottage is ideal for dogs and our two loved the front garden that was safe and secure for them to run around. Lovely location, with some lovely walks for dog lovers close by. Would highly recommend and definitely return.

Brilliant and clean
Me and my partner and 2 dogs stayed here for a week. When arrived we was greeted with a clean and lovely cottage. The owners had left a bottle of wine and some milk as a welcome gift which was extremely lovely of them. The garden was fantastic for the dogs, enclosed so you knew they couldn't get out. It is set on a farm, however out of the way and you wouldn't even know. Loved the walks around the farm and the views were beautiful. I would definitely recommend and return. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The property was comfortable & clean but best of all the bed was comfortable. Highly recommend.
