Lovely cottage
Lovely comfortable cottage, stayed for a week with our dog, there was plenty of room for us, the garden is lovely with the river running past the end. We sat in the conservatory when the weather wasn't so good relaxing with a book and a drink. It's well situated to get to Penrith and there's a good pub down the road. The cottage is on a main road so can be noisy with traffic but it didn't bother us. The only downside was the shower was very noisy.

Beautiful cottage & location AMAZING VALUE
Reading other reviews it's clear the owners have taken on board feedback given as we were extremely impressed with this well equipped cottage and we use holiday rentals regularly . The cottage is very comfortable and cosy and soon felt like home. There is a lovely village pub serving great food within easy walking distance. We walked into Penrith a couple of times too and it's only 15 minutes! We booked directly with the owner who was very helpful when contacted but also never bothered us during our stay. Staying at River Cottage was cheaper than staying in the Premier Inn by £250- no brainer, WE WILL BE BACK!! Thank you ..

Could do better
The location of this cottage is excellent for visiting the Lakes though getting in and out of the parking space is very awkward and potentially dangerous. In addition it's immediately adjacent to the A6, a very busy road with noisy traffic days and night. Obviously this os something the owners can't do anything about but users need to be aware that there is no mobile reception in most of the cottage with only sporadic coverage in the conservatory. The bed is very comfortable and the shower was fine while we were there but numerous comments had been made in the visitors book about its deficiency. It is customary when holiday lets begin on a Saturday afternoon for a few basic items to be left such as milk, coffee, bread, butter to tide one over until the next day and any one of these would have been appreciated. The cottage itself was very clean but lacking in certain essentials such as egg cups, oven proof bowls and a frying pan suitable for a gas stove. There were no instructions on how to dispose of household rubbish, the cleaning of laundry or how to connect the WiFi.

River cottage
Good location to visit the lakes and only 5 mins by car into Penrith. However having stayed in many rentals, airbnb's etc attention to essential detail is lacking with this rental.Cottage is very basic , we took towels but didnt realise we needed to take tea towels as well! Remember to take everything with you including hair drier , dishwasher tablets, shower gel , tea etc! Caution ! reverse on to the parking area but be really careful about the passenger side driveway as it dips and you could easily damage your car... we were ok but we could see there had been issues! The central heating is very effective and warms the house very quickly. The shower seems to have ongoing problems and makes an ear piercing screeching sound when used, there was a message on arrival that this was an issue and a plumber would be coming asap to fix , however this did not happen during our weeks stay! We felt sorry for the neighbours as the noise is SO loud! We don't often put a long review as life is too short to be overly negative but.... the garden furniture has really seen better days and would be very risky to sit on....the seats sway from side to side! Finally on a positive note we found lots of great places to visit nearby and there is a nice walk directly across the road from the cottage where you can walk all the way along the river to the castle .
