    • “This holiday cottage and it's location are faultless. Nothing else needs saying. The views, the village, the local pubs and short travel distances to Penrith, Carlisle or Keswick all make it ideal.”

    • “We stayed in Brant Le'ath for the Easter weekend, This cottage is very well appointed with everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable stay. The cottage was lovely and clean, and there was plenty of room for the four of us who stayed. This is a great base to explore the Lake District everything is on your doorstep. The local pub is an amazing place we frequented it on many of the cold evenings for some tasty food and the hand crafted ales they were great. I would definitely book this cottage again in a heart beat.”

    • “A beautiful house made from what once was an old barn. Finished to a very high standard and extremely comfortable. Beautiful garden and lovely countryside views. Only minutes from the lively village church and the community-owned pub where the welcome was very friendly and the locally made ales and delicious food went down very well. Highly recommended!”

    • “The cottage was very nicely presented and very clean, some problems need redressing 1, the patio doors were locked which spoilt our use of the garden especially give the very good weather if there are safety reasons they need putting right. 2, the floorboards upstairs did nothing but creak whenever you walked or crept about, 3 the door on the main bedroom sticks and cannot be opened quietly. 4, the right hand front gate is about to fall off. The biggest problem was the noise from the floor boards. Given the above I would like to own the property, very nice with small niggles.”

    • “Stayed for a week with husband and small baby. This is a great cottage. Beautifully decorated, immaculately clean with everything you could possibly want from a self catering holiday. We particularly liked the quality of linen and towels and the fact so many small details had been thought of to make a stay super comfortable (like milk in the fridge on arrival, salt & pepper in the cupboard and even washing tabs/dishwasher tabs). The views from every room are wonderful and although a 30min drive to Keswick it is such a beautiful drive who could mind. We will definitely be back - only wish I could transport it to where I live so I could stay there permanently!”

And always after a visit to the local pub...which has its own microbrewery producing delicious ales such as Doris's 90th...!!! Don't take our word for it just go! You'll not be disappointed!!!”

    • “Lovely cottage extermely well maintained with all the facilities required to support a family with 3 young children. Location was perfect in a lovely village with local shop and pub and easy access to the Northern Lakes. Highly recommended and will happily stay again.”

    Mr Turley, St. Helens, August 2018

    • “This holiday cottage is of an exceptional standard, inside and out. A great village to be based in with excellent facilities (pub with food, newsagent/ small grocer) and a good but quiet road network which can get you to Penrith, Carlisle or Keswick in around 30 minutes.”

    Mr Daniels, HULL, August 2018

    • “Brant Le'ath is the best holiday cottage we ever stayed in. It ticks all the right boxes for us: it's a bright and full of character stone detached cottage located in a picturesque countryside village with a stunning view of the rolling Cumbrian countryside, it's clean and extremely well equipped (the extensive collection of OS maps and books is definitely a bonus) and absolutely peaceful - something you definitely appreciate if you live in London and commute every day to the City! We particularly enjoyed the secluded garden and patio where we had some great dinners and a couple of drinks after a day on the fells and the collection of DVDs on the Lakeland mountains that helped us to get onto the spirit of that beautiful corner of England. The cottage has two newly refurbished bathrooms (one ensuite in the master bedroom) on the first floor and a small cIoset downstairs near the utility room where you have the washing machine and separate tumble dryer. The kitchen is huge, very bright and fully equipped. Bran Le'ath is the perfect place to have a peaceful and relaxing holiday and explore the Northern Lakes. The Old Crown is just a 3-minute walk from the property and serves a great selection on real ales, mostly supplied by local micro-brewery. Other great pubs in the area are the Oddfellows Arms in Caldbeck (1.5 miles) and the Snooty Fox in Uldale (6 miles). We will definitely go back to this amazing holiday cottage.”
