Brilliant place to stay
Handy for the Village (10 min walk) Very comfortable self catering cottage with fabulous views. Friendly owners with the Lady of the farm willing to provide evening meals and breakfast with advanced orders. The breakfast was excellent.

A beautiful quiet location with views over the fields towards the lake and hills. Only a fifteen minute walk into Hawkshead either along a country path or by road.
Mrs Hammond

We had a super week in the beautiful Lake District. So much to see and do with our 5 year old daughter from visits to National Trust properties to walking and a must do is the treetop trees!
Mrs Wain

The hot tub is a brilliant feature and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Overall an excellent cottage.
Mr Manson

We found the cottage extremely cosy and comfortable. It was well equipped, easy to find and the hot tub was a real treat! The location was just great - a short walk to the village and a little bit off the beaten track, with lots of walking and the lake so close.
