Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The cottage was lovely everything that you would want for a chill out walking holiday, with the most fabulous huge Aga, which made the cottage toasty warm for our September holiday and very easy to use. TV was all good all channels avaliable so nothing missed. Sept 2012.
  2. Perfectly located to access the most popular areas of the lake district, as well as the more secluded locations too. We found 2 beautiful little villages to explore with a wonderful array of shops and quaint little streets and buildings. These were Hawkshead and Cartmel. Hawkeshead is the place where the Beatrix Potter museum is located and there is a great little cafe where you are given a wonderful welcome and fabulous food. We also went up to Beatrix potters house which is about a 10 minute drive away. Cartmel has a wonderful priory and is well worth a visit. The village is very picturesque and the shops are great to browse around. There is a small racecourse which looked as thought it would be great to visit when there is a meeting is on. The scenery is spectacular and I would thoroughly recommend a drive through the passes and a trip to Buttermere lake and the area. The Aga was great but we lost power halfway through the holiday which is a shame but that was only downside and that was not the fault of the cottage and was just one of those things. June 2012.
  3. Tipsy Drake Cottage was a quaint cottage in a perfect location. It was extremely cosy and we always looked forward to coming ’home’ to it at the end of each day. One of the reasons we chose this cottage was the fact that we could take our dog and we were fortunate to find an excellent pub within walking distance (The Royal Oak) that was not only pet friendly but also served great food...bonus!!! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Tipsy Drake....and would quite happily return tomorrow!!! Dec 2011.
  4. The best equipped cottage we have stayed in yet. Jan 2011.
  5. Good sized rooms, well decorated. Very comfortable. Aga stove a big plus. Oct 2010.
  6. The cottage was perfect for the three of us (me, my husband and 10 year old son) as it was cosy with just the right size rooms. Aug 2010.
  7. Very much like a home rather than only there to rent out. Very well stocked with equipment. Never saw the owner/caretaker but there is a very good key collecting arrangement. May 2010.
  8. We had a fantastic stay because the cottage is in the midst of one of the most beautiful areas in Britain and the cottage was lovely! The open fires and the aga definitely made our stay worthwhile and the cottage was clean, well furnished and equipped and just fantastic! Feb 2010.
  9. The cottage was beautifully furnished and very clean. It was everything we expected and more. Feb 2010.
  10. A little quirky, the aga oven was a real feature. Oct 2009.
  11. Quality was very good. Sept 2009.
  12. Traditional cottage. Compact and comfortable downstairs. Bedrooms reasonable, although only storage was in second, single bedroom. Sept 2009.
  13. Lovely area, very quiet and quaint. The only bad part about the holiday was having to leave and go back to the real world. April 2009.
  14. The Lake District is one of the most adorable places in Britain and we will certainly be holidaying in this area at Tipsy Drake as soon as possible. July 2009.
  15. Tipsy Drake is in a good location for the South Lakes, The drive to Lake Coniston and on up through to Ambleside was lovely, with the pub across the road serving good food made it a really nice stay. July 2009.
  16. Tispsy Drake Cottage was beautifully presented, it was cosy and welcoming, very much a home from home. Feb 2009.
