Simply wonderful!!
We have just returned from a most wonderful stay at the beautiful Blacksmith Cottage. The property is maintained to a very high standard and furnished very comfortably. The shower is excellent after a long day walking and the bed is very comfortable. The garden is an idyllic little walled garden with grass and flowers, garden furniture is provided and it is a lovely area to sit in as it gets the sun for a lot of the day. Blacksmith Cottage has everything you need for a relaxing break in the Lake District and we definitely hope to return again one day.

Cosy and Peaceful - The Perfect Cottage
We loved this gorgeous cottage and were so lucky to find it at such short notice. We booked at midday on the day we were planning to arrive. The turn around time was fantastic and the cottage was all ready for us upon our arrival. We found it cosy and peaceful and just perfect for a break away from work where we could really relax. It was a great base for exploring the beautiful lake district. The cottage was clean and very well presented with good quality furnishings. After a day out walking we loved the fact that we could come back to the cottage and relax by the wood burner. The stocks of kindling and wood was replenished for us half way though our stay which we were very grateful for - Thank You! If you love to stay connected when your on holiday the cottage is equipped with wifi which worked brilliantly for us. We would definitely return and most definitely recommend!

cosy and rustic cottage
This cottage is a real little gem. It is furnished to a high standard and has a wood burning stove if things get nippy ! We stayed in June during a bit of a heatwave and found the cottage a cool retreat because of the thick walls. The small garden is a delight ! Buy some bird seed and just sit back.! One thing to watch.. Not good if you have bad knees or any mobility issues due to the stairs to the bedroom.All in all, though, we couldn't fault either cottage or location.

Cosy, charming and cute
A lovely little holiday let for two. We arrived towards the end of a cold snap and found the place very chilly, but soon had the wood-burning stove fired up. The owners had put a very nicely decorated Christmas tree in a corner of the sitting room and there were seasonal lights around the mantelpiece, which made for a very cosy environment once the curtains were drawn. The place was spotless and finished to a high standard. The bathroom's underfloor heating, heated towel rail and shower were fantastic. The cottage's location was perfect for us and the silence and darkness gave us the best nights' sleep we'd had in ages. We couldn't find instructions for the storage heaters (we'd not used them before), so we were a bit chilly at first. We called the agent and the owner called us back a few moments later to tell us how best to use them. They still struggled a bit but we were much warmer thereafter. All in all, we had a lovely time and hope to return.

September Break
Found this cottage on Google search. Looked exactly what we wanted for our September break. Saturday to Saturday booking suited us as well. The Cottage was easy to find, we knew we couldn't park outside the property but this is made clear in the details. The free parking is 50yards away and is ample. The whole area around the cottage was quiet and peaceful. The bedroom was very big and so was the bed which was very comfortable and there was plenty of wardrobe and draw space. The bathroom sorry, shower room had a double size shower cubicle with an overhead power shower, we found this a superb arrangement. The living room had comfortable chairs and sofa and a good size tv. Wi-fi was excellent and fast. Kitchen had all you need and the dishwasher was an added bonus. We also sat out in the pleasant garden a few times. The cottage is situated on the edge of a small village but nothing was more than 300 yards away! 3 pubs and two cafes (we tried them all and they were all excellent). A general shop, outdoor shop and a couple of gift shops completed a lovely village. All in all we couldn't have wished for better. I would suggest that this property is NOT suitable for people with disabilities especially if you have difficulty in climbing narrowish turning stairs.
