Fantastic cottage with a truly luxury feel - a real gem!
Stayed at Bishop Fell for a week in July 2020. We were blown away by the quality of every element of the house. It looked fantastic in the photos but was even better in real life which is certainly very rare! Decoration throughout was beautiful and extremely well thought out. Facilities were ideal for groups/families staying together as there was plenty of space for the evenings and 3 gorgeous bathrooms. Self catered most meals most days while we stayed and found the kitchen to be exceptionally well equipped compared to many other holiday cottages I have stayed in before. Owner was really helpful with suggestions for walks and restaurants etc both before arrival and during our stay. Responded to any queries very promptly and left us a lovely welcome hamper for arrival which was much appreciated. Great location in the lakes for exploring - we enjoyed many walks while we were there and our group of 2 children, a grandparent and other family members all had a fantastic week away. Covid-19 precautions were all also dealt with in a very efficient manner. We are already thinking about when we would like to book again and would highly recommend.

A beautiful and luxurious holiday home. Simply perfect.
We booked this property to celebrate my Mums 60th birthday and we were not disappointed! The house is stunning and extremely well equipped - no expense has been spared. Ideal for extended families and the host Jane is great and looked after us very well with a lovely package of local goodies on arrival and great communication both prior to and after our stay. Book now, you will not be disappointed!!

If you're looking for luxury........
We stayed in this beautiful property for New Year and so pleased we chose Bishop Fell. Newly renovated and furnished to an amazingly high standard, start to finish, the owners have literally thought of everything. Perfect for larger families, and having bedrooms downstairs also was a plus with great disability access, shower and we on ground floor. Great walks on doorstep, lovely pubs and restaurants close by. We would highly recommended and most definitely shall return. The owner delivered us warm home baked mince pies and a wonderful bottle of champagne upon arrival - lovely lady and great service.
