Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The cottage was lovely although it had a problem with the downstairs area being cool and damp feeling, we needed the heating on just to make the downstairs feel cosy, even though the temperature outside was pleasant. Upstairs the bedroom and lounge area were lovely, very comfortable. We felt the cottage was just a little too remote for us as we would have liked to have been able to walk to the village in an evening and some wine with our meal, however, we needed to use the car which meant no wine for the driver! Or stay home and cook! Our Labrador dog loved the river at the bottom of the garden, and enjoyed playing in it at the end of every day. We enjoyed the BBQ area as it was pleasant to be able to sit for an hour or two before the sun moved round. All in all we did enjoy the cottage, just wish it was a little nearer to the village, then we would happily return for another visit. Sept 2012.
  2. Couldn’t fault the cottage, excellent! March 2012.
  3. Great accommodation and location. Owners very friendly. Ideal base for a holiday in the lakes! Aug 2011.
  4. The cottage was equipped with everything you would need. It was very comfortable and we loved the gallery layout. The new shower room was lovely and the power shower excellent. The garden leading down to the beck was quiet and peaceful and visits from the red squirrels were something special. July 2011.

  13. Consideration was given to all the ’little things’ such as washing up liquid, toilet rolls, condiments and herbs for cooking, cooking utensils, not just plates and mugs, coasters so you didn’t mark the furniture with hot cups, plenty of spare linen and towels etc etc. This property reflected the owners experience of this holiday let and the Gold Standard awards are duly earnt.
