Perfect little get away
My wife,my 1 year old little man and 3 year old girl and I stayed here for two nights. What a perfect little get away it is. The hosts Joanne and Martin are lovely people and they thought of everything that we could need for our stay with the little ones! Lots of indoor and outdoor toys to play with, DVDs to watch and books to read. Daisy said her favourite part of the whole trip was to help feed the cows, the kids both loved it! Thank you for your friendliness and letting us stay in one of your beautiful cottages. We would love to come back!

Did not disappoint
Booked a short break here at the last minute to extend our holiday in The Lakes and were not disappointed. Lovely home from home in a beautiful farm setting. The cottage was clean, homely and well equipped. Plenty of games, books and even a football goal for the children. Would highly recommend a stay here.

This cottage is fantastic and exceeded every expectation we had. Ideally located....not too far from town but far enough to make you feel like you are in the middle of no where. The cottage has been converted to an excellent standard, with all the home comforts you would need and the log burner at night was just the ticket. The owners are simply lovely and can not do enough to make sure you have everything you need. There are dogs but they are very friendly and love a doggy treat. It is a working farm and loved being able to help bottlfeed the calf. Try it you won?t be disappointed!

Perfect !
Beautiful cottage for an amazing time. Joanne and Martin are fantastic and so welcoming. The place is very nice for children (animals, toys, playground). Very clean and confortable. Be back soon !
