Idyllic
Just spent a lovely week in this charming little cottage in Crosslands, 5 miles south of Hawkshead, in the Lake District. The hosts, Graham and Gaynor Jarvis made us feel really welcome and the home baked scones left for us were delicious. Lovely walks straight out the door and onto the fells were amazing, our dog loved it too. Nice wood burner for chilly evenings made the cottage so cosy, can't wait to go back.

The beautiful scenery as you walk out the front door was amazing, so many lovely walks and because the cottage was dog friendly we were able to enjoy it with our four legged friend making the holiday even more delightful. The property owners are very kind and incredibly helpful. The house has fantastic heating so the cottage was warm throughout the day. The nearest shop is rather far so to anyone travelling over I would recommend taking your own food. I would rate our week a 10/10.

Fantastic cottage. Lovely location, quiet, restful and silent. The owners were lovely who live next door. Excellent location to get to other places in the lakes. We cannot recommend this place enough
