Lovely cottage!
We are actually staying in oak tree right now for a week. It is a lovely cottage located in a cluster of holiday lets on Brockholes farm. A few small criticisms: 1) It is located at the end of a long half mile+ track. Not ideal for us as we had a 75 year old and had to drive everywhere as a result. I wish this was clearer in the booking info! 2) It is a little tired in places and needs a bit of TLC. Although the cottage is lovely it needs a bit of attention. For instance the light in the one bedroom was broken, the skirting board behind the door had fallen off and the fire remote was broken. Just the little things I know but it takes the shine of what is a lovely cottage. 3) It would definitely benefit from a selection of board games and activities. There were several jigsaws but they were missing pieces and all mixed up (found this out after trying to complete one and loads of the pieces were missing! :( ) This cottage Lovely and warm! The underfloor heating was very welcome although we tended to turn it down as it was very warm! Breathtaking scenery. Absolutely stunning views! Definitely worth a stay if you are in the area!

River, mountains, snug stay!
Just returned from a week in Oak Tree cottage for four adults aged from 30s to 80s. Booking was simple, Kevin and associates could not have made us feel more welcome when we arrived. The cottage was very clean, simple and snug, with underfloor heating available when the wether turned cooler. The kitchen was well equipped and rapidly became the centre of the household. The cottage is next to the river with a small garden overlooking the Lune. All of us enjoyed both short and longer walks from the cottage, which has access directly on to the Howgills, and trips to the lakes and Pennines which are easily accessible by car. The Pennines are so much less crowded than the lakes and are so very peaceful. I was worried about the motorway and railway passing on the other side of the river but although we could hear both it wasn't a problem. I imagine that the grandchildren would love exploring the area around the farm and there was a well equipped play area for children. They would love picnics by the river. All in all it was a very special stay and I do recommend the cottages.

A very spacious cottage with a lovely kitchen! The views were outstanding, the view out of each window was like looking out to a living picture frame as my partner described it! It was just off the M6 and we were so glad about it! There was good access to close attractions but there was so much to explore just around the cottage! We enjoyed our hike down to the river and up the hill! Will definitely book again!

It was a very cosy, comfy cottage with all mod cons. A great base for touring the area; Kendal, Penrith and Keswick were all within a reasonable reaching distance. The scenery was breathtaking, we even saw a steam train and the jets flying down the Tebay Gap were a treat for all.

A hidden gem, absolutely excellent.
