Perfect lakes Base
manda was fabulous and the one Bedroom cottage perfect for two and very spacious! Great location peaceful and easy to access. Can't recommend enough and very nice and quiet small site with fabulous toilet and shower amenities if you want to camp. Views to die for. Field nice and flat.

The cottage was lovely and cosy with lovely friendly owners. It was nice and dog friendly, fabulous to see the red squirrels and so many other animals.

We enjoyed absolutely everything about this holiday! The cottage is just perfect and the setting is beautiful! It has everything you could possibly need, a real home from home, and the beds are so comfy! Just loved it! It's in a great location with easy access to lots of lovely places. Couldn't fault it at all!
