Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very well equipped cottage idealy placed to visit many of the attractions being close to two main routes. Oct 2012.
  2. The cottage is small but beautifully formed, the area is wonderfully quiet with great views and the beds were so comfortable, the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side but then that’s the Lakes, without the rain it wouldn’t be the same. June 2012.
  3. This is our second time at this cottage, we will be booking again for next year. July 2012.
  4. Cosy, room for 2 adults and 2 strapping teenagers + 2 dogs. (En-suite shower rooms were a bonus!) Coat hooks for wet coats. Well equipped. June 2012.
  5. A very good position to reach many parts of the lakes. Very friendly people and helpful. Cottage had everything you need during your holiday. The en-suite shower rooms were rather small but adequate. One thing that did help was the weather, glorious all week- why bother to go abroad when you get 29 degrees in the lakes. Lots of safety features - Fire Blanket, Fire Extinguisher, Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarms. May 2012.
  6. Very cosy homely cottage. Oct 2011.

  13. I have limited mobility and found the accommodation and bathrooms very good and convenient to use. The owner was so welcoming and friendly.
