Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Ideal property for a short break. Although small everything was there that was needed for our stay. Well equipped. Wildlife in garden was excellent. July 2012.
  2. Fantastic property location & superb standard of accommodation conversion using a very small space in a very clever manner. Very professional set up absolutely everything had been thought of even essential toiletries in case anything had been overlooked when packing for the visit & dressing gowns ! Great base for Ullswater & Derwentwater visits. Fantastic garden with masses of birds & even a red squirrel. Welcome basket was amazing included still warm from the oven home made bread, home made shortbread, bottle of wine, etc. Hope to visit again for a lovely relaxing break - can’t get a better recommend than wanting a return trip. We didn’t use the facility, but owners even offer to make evening meals for reheating. May 2012.
  3. Excellent touring base and the birds and wildlife in the garden are fantastic. May 2012.
  4. Such a great cottage for a cosy weekend with the other half! We had an amazing time visiting the lake district for the first time and the cottage is in a perfect spot for transport links to visit all of the lake district. On arrival we found our welcome basket so comforting and the welcome pack had so much info about the local areas. We recommend this to everyone! (Also we’re both tall, im 5’10" with my partner being 6’2" and if you’re worried about the low ceiling it wasn’t really a problem). May 2012.
  5. This was our second visit to the property (we went last year) - we will be booking again. Owners are discret and welcoming. Fantstic welcome basket. Garden perfect for bird watching and seeing the red squirrels. Property spotless & very well equipped. Fantastic shower especially are a long day walking on the fell in the rain. Easy access to M6 & Keswick Penrith 10 min drive away. April 2012.
  6. Lovely little place to stay for a few days, we didn’t want to leave. Had everything we needed. And most importantly saw a red squirrel in the garden. March 2012.
  7. The Studio is a fabulous little cottage and is perfect for a stay in The Lakes for two people. It is very comfy to come back to after a great day walking. Feb 2012.
  8. The Studio is a beautiful cottage and I would definitely return. The setting is both picturesque and really relaxing. The garden, maintained by Jim and is really beautiful and the stream right outside the back door is really peaceful. Dec 2011.
  9. This was a lovely cosy place, and perfect for a couple to retreat to. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The small food hamper we found when we arrived was very much appreciated, and included some lovely bread and a bottle of wine. We would definitely visit again! Dec 2011.
  10. Super relaxing holiday. Great welcome. Watching red squirrels and woodpeckers in the garden was fantastic. July 2011.
  11. A lovely, well equipped, studio barn, just right for 2 people, situated in a very quiet location. The owners are very welcoming. April 2011.
  12. Exceeded all my expectations and extremely enjoyable. April 2011.
  13. Wonderful location, beautiful garden and wildlife around the barn where we stayed. Idyllic situation, perfect for what we were looking for. A very restful week, even though we had driving rain on one of the days! We were particularly impressed with the reading material in the property. Nothing was left to chance, we were well looked after here. April 2011.
  14. At first glance this property looks small, however, it is very well kitted out and it has everything you would want. The welcome breakfast goody basket was a really nice touch. March 2011.
  15. Clean and modern accommodation. Easy to find and easy access to main towns and attractions. Dec 2010.
  16. A fabulous retreat and excellent hospitality from the owners. Cosy but perfectly formed with everything we needed and a great location. We will be back! Nov 2010.
  17. Although small, as advertised, it was well laid out, very well equipped and was spotlessly clean. It had everything we needed and masses of information about local walks, places to visit, guide books and even Ordinance Survey maps. Sept 2010.
  18. The cottage was small which was suitable to me and there is a beautiful garden outside with wildlife that you would never see around your own home. Aug 2010.
