Fabulous cosy cottage
Booked here for the Christmas week for wife and myself on arrival we were greeted by a friendly lady called Brenda who helps out and house sits who took us in to the shipped. It's laid out to a high standard with lots of little extras the fire was ready to be life only we were a little early so only had to put a match to it. Much bigger then I thought with a beautiful spiral stairs going down to a little hall and bedroom with was truly good standard top quality bedding and furniture also off to another door step down to the bathroom door wow beautiful bathroom. Just love the way this place has used all the old latch doors and a few beams too stunning x. We've never gone away over Christmas before but truly glad we booked here so peaceful day n night.

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.

A perfect holiday home in a perfect location. Had a very relaxing holiday.

The property was quiet and peaceful with plenty of places to walk.
Mrs Bacon

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.
