Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This was a lovely little cottage,clean and comfortable although our weather was cold we were able to use the coal fire to supplement the heating. The sauna was great after a long day hill walking. The welcome package was brilliant as we arrived late in the evening. April 2012.
  2. This cottage was undoubtedly one of the best we have stayed in. The owners are delightful and ensure a warm welcome on arrival, but maintain a discrete presence throughout your stay. It is a little gem of a cottage, in a quiet pretty village in a beautiful part of the North Lakes. Just wonderful. March 2012.
  3. Fantastic place to have a well earned break, would definitely return. Nov 2011.
  4. Fantastic property. Being to the north of the lakes allows easy access to the nicer and quieter western lakes. The property is lovely, very cosy and ever so quiet. Will certainly return. Oct 2011.
  5. This property is excellent, everything has been thought of. The owners are to be congratulated, the attention to detail is second to none, all the nice little extra touches. The coal free in price etc, can’t fault this place so much so, this is the only cottage I have returned to for a second time. Oct 2011.
  6. We loved the personal touches like food/drink/chocolates when we arrived. The owners were helpful yet not intrusive. Fantastic to have Sky Sports so that I could keep up with my footy!! Come on Stoke. The kitchen could thrive on a few sharp knives. Oct 2011.
  7. A welcoming and comfortable cottage. June 2011.
  8. The property was comfortable and the owners where were very nice and made our stay very welcoming. March 2011.
  9. Ideal base for visiting the Cumbria coast as well as the northern Lakes. The pub (1 mile) served good pub food at reasonable prices. We were made most welcome with our two dogs and accommodation lived up to everything in the brochure. We would use this bad again. March 2011.
  10. The level of comfort, and facilities available, was incredible value for money. And the welcome we got was superb. Oct 2010.
  11. The owners were very friendly and made us very welcome, the food package was an unexpected but very nice surprise. Oct 2010.
  12. Good location for travelling to other areas within the Lake District. Lovely comfortable lounge with coal fir making it very cosy on cold nights. All rooms are good sizes and cottage has everyting you will need for your stay. Oct 2010.
  13. Com fortable and clean. Ideally situated for us. Loved the open fire. Would recommend to any one. Oct 2010.
  14. Excellent for position for touring the lakes, car and walking. Would definately recommend this cottage. Sep 2010.
  15. Oak Barn was charming, has all mod cons, it’s a very pleasant accommodation. June 2010.
  16. The old barn was simply the best cottage we have stayed at, it was heaven on earth. Its location is tranquil, amenities within the cottage itself super and our hosts could not have been more welcoming. June 2010.
  17. The friendly and helpful owners made our party feel both welcome and "at home". The standard of the accommodation had the same feel good factor. The large widescreen TV complete with full Sky digital service proved a real bonus in the evenings. April 2010.
  18. The cottage is very well equipped and has a warm and pleasent feel. May 2010.
  19. Very quiet location, owners friendly, everything was spotless and a very welcoming welcome pack inc fresh flowers nothing was too much trouble. This was out second visit and I look forward to returning soon. April 2010.
  20. The little touches that were not essential but heightened our holiday enjoyment considerably. Feb 2010.
