Chris and Wynne
Just spent another wonderful week at this cottage, our forth year in a row. The cottage is very comfortable and cosy with a log burner. Lovely garden for our two dogs and the pub next door run by Susi and barmaid Fran was very homely and welcoming and dog friendly. Looking forward to our next visit!

This was a great location with peace and quiet, which was just what we needed. This cottage was quirky and lovely. We had a wonderful time.

There is nothing which isn't perfect about this gorgeous little cottage.
Mr Jones

This was a lovely cottage in a lovely location. It was very comfortable and had a great pub next door with good food and friendly staff. It was perfect for visiting the Lakes or the North Pennines or just sitting in front of the fire with a book if you want to relax.
Mr Sutherland

Dacre is a quiet, pretty village not on the main tourist route but near to Ullswater. The School House is a dear little cottage with a good sized garden. We really loved it.
