    • “Just perfect”

    • “Lavender Cottage is one of three holiday cottages at Wydon Farm. The cottage is prettily furnished with lots of nice touches, and for me, most importantly spotlessly clean. Pretty farmyard setting with neatly laid out seating and BBQ areas and a paddock for children to play in. The owners have struck a really nice balance between being family friendly but furnishing the accomodation that it is equally suitable for a couples getaway. Perfect location nestled conveniently between Penrith and Keswick. We had awful weather but it was nice to know we had a warm dry cottage to go back to each night.”

    • “This is a fantastic cottage equipped with all you need. The owners made us feel very welcome- we saw sheep from the front door - made you feel like you were on a farm. We had our 2 year old little girl with us and she just loved it, thought that I would mention that there are baby gates which put our minds at rest.(They even have a playhouse in the paddock. We recieved complimentary Biscuits, Wine and milk on arrival wich was great. Will definately return to Lavander cottage.”

    • “Lovely cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This is a really lovely cottage, beautifully decorated, cosy & warm and really well equipped. It is in an excellent location for the North Lakes about 15 mins drive into Keswick, 10 mins to Ullswater, 10 mins to M6. I would imagine its proximity to the A66 might be a problem if you are sitting outside in the summer and are easily disturbed by road noise, but the advantages easily outweigh that. We stayed in the adjacent cottage at Easter and would definitely book again, the owners are really friendly and we were able to arrive early and leave later as there was nobody in the cottage immediately before or after us.”

    • “Probably the best cottage we have ever stayed in. So well equipped and cosy. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a great central location in the lake district. Two pubs within walking distance. Penrith just 5 miles away with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. Ullswater just 4 miles away. The owners are very pleasant and helpful if there is anything you need to know. Can't wait to go back!”

    • “Superb, well equiped cottage in excellent location”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The cottage was spotlessly clean with all the local infomation awaiting us, the owners were available to offer advice and assitance if required. The cottage itself was of a high quality with everything we could require, for a holiday. The location was ideal, in that it was close to the motorway and Keswick, the heart of the lake district. But also rural with spectacular views and a real sense of being in the middle of one of the major beauty spots of the UK. All local amenities, ie, supermarkets and good quality resturants were within easy reach. My only critisim was that I had to leave.”

    • “This cosy little cottage was really thoughtfully and tastefully appointed with everything you could possibly need. It was ideally situated for days out in both the lake district national park, and the pennines. Extremely peaceful, no noticeable road noise or farmyard noises!”

    • “Lovely clean cottage, well kept. Perfect position for walking, climbing or site seeing holiday. Treats from owners a nice touch. They are friendly and on hand if needed, otherwise you would not know they were there. We look forward to going back in the future.”

    Mr Broadbent, Abingdon, August 2018

    • “The Cottage was just lovely and fully equipped with everything we needed. The owners were friendly and helpful. The area surrounding the Cottage was beautiful. I enjoyed my breakfast alfresco every morning sitting out on the patio cbairs overlooking the country side. The area was the perfect base to visit the whole of the beautiful lake district. We had a wonderful Holiday and would definitely return to Lavender Cottage.”
