My mother booked our current stay. The place is roomy and in a very good location. With easy access to the Lakes, Dales, Northumberland and Scotland. We did all of these and found it very useful to be so central. The property is on a main road but despite the single glazed windows, I didn't feel the road was overly noisy. No biggy for us. A good sized property with good sized rooms & bathrooms. Nice bedlinen and towels. Nice crockery even. Good quality on both accounts. The garden is lovely with some lovely views over the back fields etc. Not fully enclosed for some sneaky dogs who can escape through the right hedge into next doors garden. So we propped a chair there. Oopsie. Nice bottle of bubbly on arrival and some nice biscuits. Plenty of dishwasher tablets & body products too. Plenty of hot water. The house wasn't cold either. The owner was very helpful in accommodating my personal issues upon arrival. Downsides for us: - Damp. The main living room smells badly of damp & thus we didn't use this room despite there being 4 of us. The bedroom with the juliette balcony also smells of damp. - Main living room. Dark & insufficient lighting for ambient evenings. Fusty. - Kitchen. Many pots, glasses etc with encrusted food on. Dishwasher full on arrival. No cloths. No washing up liquid. Only 2 tea towels. Oven needs a good clean due to oil burnt on which made opening the oven door when on, very difficult to use due to the smoke and stinging of the eyes. - One of the bathrooms upstairs. No where to hang a towel or put products on. - Private Bathroom downstairs. Water drips off walls despite the air vent being permanently on. Body towels weren't drying between daily showers due to the dampness of the room. - Sofas. Filthy between the cushions. Couldn't find a clothes airer. But I could have missed it. All in all a good spot. Nice new kitchen. Most utensils available. But in all honesty we personally wouldn't return.

Very spacious and comfortable.
Stayed as a family group and we we all agreed we'd stay here again. Dog friendly, loads of room, nicely furnished, comfortable, incredibly well equipped (including a large utility room), great wi-fi and a fabulous large garden with a dining area as well as a very sociable fire pit and seating area. Plenty of parking space. Just down from a main road which means it's easy to get to lots of places.

Perfect :-)
We got back from a hen weekend at Otters Holt yesterday and we had the absolute best time !!! The cottage is stunning, perfectly situated for privacy and close to the local town. The house was spotless and mega comfortable !!! And to our surprise there were in fact 4 bathrooms !!! The hot tub had been turned on ready for which was a bonus. The only downside that we had was the weather and there being no shelter for the hot tub, however, luckily for us, we packed a gazebo and were able to use the hot tub despite the rain !!!!! Had we arrived without the gazebo, we most definitely would not have been able to use it !!! Another bonus is the changing room shed, right next to the hot tub which kept our towels nice and dry :-) ! We found that the spot light on the shed gave perfect lighting when it went dark also !!!!! genuinely can?t get over how lush the cottage is ! Highly recommend ! Will definitely be returning when it's sunny lol !!!!!

Perfect Cottage
We had a fantastic weekend away at Otters Holt, located close to Carlisle and with lots of lovely country pubs and activities only a short drive away, it's a perfect weekend away destination. The cottage is beautifully presented, with two log fires making it very cosy. It has everything you could possibly need. The bedrooms are massive, each with their own private bathroom. We were 5 adults and we never felt on top of each other. Towels, toiletries etc were provided. They even had board games in the second lounge. I left an item at the house and the owner was quick to let me know and even posted it back to me within 24 hours. Really appreciated. Would love to book this property again for another weekend. Highly recommend for anyone wanted a lovely large cottage close to everything. Tip - I would bring some slippers for walking around the cottage.

Beautiful cottage, relaxing stay.
Had short 3 day break in Otters Holt with friends, it is a beautiful well appointed cottage wonderful facilities and had a very relaxing stay, the hot tub and fire pit were a very welcome bonus, wished we could have had a week.
