Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Excellent facilities for a large family group or friends. We liked the fact it was quite remote with fantastic views all round yet still just a short 5 minute drive to a super market if required. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pans and crockery for preparing and eating meals. Beds were very comfortable and the whole property is well furnished and presented. Would definately stay again, super mini break. Oct 2012.
  2. An excellent place to stay. June 2012.
  3. This is a fabulous property which we would definitely return to again. Spacious yet cosy at the same time, well appointed, beautifully furnished, warm , clean and comfortable. We loved it! A great house for families holidaying together and well located for exploring the Eden Valley. March 2012.
  4. This was our 5th visit to this property and now feel it is like a home form home. Gets better every year and has been recently treated to new soft furnishings which amde it all the better- wonderful break and everything there for you to enjoy the experience of the Lakes. Dec 2011.
  5. This cottage is absolutely amazing! The setting is stunning and peaceful. The house was spotless with gorgeous rooms, bedding and lots of extras that made it feel like a home from home. I would happily move in permanently if I could! Oct 2011.
  6. This is a spacious, comfortable farmhouse on a working farm, with good-quality furniture and restful country views from all bedrooms. It’s half an hour’s drive from the Lake District but the local area itself is charming, close to the Pennine Way and the lovely little town of Appleby. It’s a country mile to the nearest pub and a few miles to the nearest shops so a car is essential. Sept 2011.
  7. Lovely accommodation with very helpful owners. Pretty central for most of the places we wanted to visit. very good but not expensive restaurant within walking distance in village. Oct 2011.
  8. Brilliant best ever holiday. All family enjoyed. Very good response from owners and very very helpful. Oct 2011.
  9. Wonderful place to stay, our party was made up of age ’40-something’ girls, trying to escape the mundane ’housewife and mother thing’ on a weekend, and we certainly succeeded that. Had great fun together eating, drinking, laughing, singing and dancing on the wii /playstation. Had a lovely walk to nearby village and a spot of shopping in Appleby and Penrith. Booked an evening Spa session at Centre Parcs on the Sunday to complete our stay. Would recommend this place to anyone. FAB! March 2011.
  10. Beautiful, clean house, the photos do not do it justice! Fixtures and fittings great quality. Beautiful views. Great walks from the door. Couldn’t have asked for a better property for our extended family weekend.
  11. Lovely spacious cottage for 3 families with kids and a dog. Feb 2011.
  12. A very homely home with everything that was needed for our occasion. Jan 2011.
  13. Fantastic all round, facilities were superb. Great place to relax! Definitely come back soon. Dec 2010.
  14. I liked the big lounge where we could all sit together, I booked the farmhouse for my husbands 60th birthday party and it was a great success. Nov 2010.
  15. Great location. Attention to detail; fire was lit on arrival, complimentary bottle of wine awaited us. Huge, beautifully dressed christmas tree added to the festive experience. Only down-sides were the en-suite shower ran cold only, and the dishwasher was not working. Dec 2010.
  16. The property was quiet, secluded and very peaceful. June 2010.
  17. Spacious, homely and comfortable. June 2010.
  18. Spacious and full of character. Much larger than looked on the photographs. Feb 2010.
  19. It was surprising, much better than the brochure portrayed. Everything was just super. Feb 2010.
  20. Property and location were excellent. There were a few things that should be attended to. 1/ poor crockery and cutlery. 2/ t.v. was not up to the standard of the rest of the property. 3/ lots of bagged rubbish outside of rear door that we had to move. 4/ several areas of maintenance i.e. smoke alarms, drawer fronts and ventilation to bathrooms all need attention. Otherwise excellent. well worth recommending. Dec 2009.
