We went with all the family, and dogs. It was a wonderful holiday the cottage was beautifully clean with loads of character. The garden was great for the grandchildren and dogs. We couldn't have ask for more, even provided a cot at last minute for our grandson. Will be going back next year. Definitely a 10 out of 10.

Excellent Stay!
The cottage is well equipped and perfect for our large group of eight. The garden was also beautiful with a view over Skiddaw. The owner was very helpful providing advice on local attractions as well as recommending the Sun Inn, a local pub.

Fantastic holiday
This cottage was our second choice as the first was cancelled due to flooding. But this cottage defiantly wasn't second best. It had everything we needed & more. We was shown around when we arrived & told where everything was & how to use shower & other equipment Due to the hot weather there was quite a lot of flies ( not just in the cottage but also in other establishments we visited.) when we mentioned it to the owner she went out of her way to get us some fly Swotters. The view from the garden was fabulous & our 2 dogs had a great time running round..

Damp, Cold, Smelly
After really needing a break (4yr old just getting over pneumonia and mother in law who is just recovering from chemo) I was very disappointed. Firstly the location and views were gorgeous with a lovely garden for the dog. The driveway did run to a main road though and is not closed off. The pub (the sun bassenthwaite) around the corner is top notch. When we arrived we were greeted and shown round - and all the faults pointed out. The sink in one of the bedrooms was blocked. The light above it did not work. Nor did the light in one of the other bedrooms. The shower was a dribble and only worked if you turned it on a certain way. We were told how to use the fire which runs the hot water and heating. The first thing we did on arrival was put this on as the house being large was freezing. Heat is a basic these days in the winter. It took a few days for it to really warm up and even then it wasn't ever so warm. My son now has an awful cold. The kitchen was always cold. There was an oil rad which we put in the kitchen and moved upstairs to my little boys room at night. The door to the kitchen had to be closed constantly as the stench of cigarette smoke which we can only assume came from the owner who lived next door in a blocked off room/shed was quite frankly disgusting. The whole house smelt of damp. All clothes - even the ones we didn't wear are now being washed as they smell awful. The oven was not big enough for a large family (7) and the aga was out of use! There is no dishwasher. But there was a washing machine and fair size fridge freezer and downstairs loo! We had to ask for extra wood to keep the fire going, This was brought to us but it was no where near enough and we didn't like to have to ask again. There was a little steam in the garden which was pretty. It was all a bit tired and dated and for the price we paid we expected better!
