    “We only stayed 2 nights, but the cottage was a great place and so well located for hikes in and around the quieter northern fells as well as heading back down the road to London and bypassing the often very busy central fells roads around Ambleside.”

    Nice and comfy and had everything we needed. Great hot shower! Would like to come back in winter and make use of the cosy fireplace.

    Nice and comfy and had everything we needed. Great hot shower! Would like to come back in winter and make use of the cosy fireplace. Parking was a bit tricky as we came in 2 cars but found space further down in the village so all ok in the end. Went to the White horse for dinner in Scales and had gigantic portions, very delicious and welcome after a hard days walking. All in all a great location and nice little cottage :)

At the end of the day, ascend the stairs to find two lovely bedrooms, a double and a bunk, as well as a superb bathroom featuring a large corner bath and a contemporary walk-in shower. When it comes to dining, The Sally Inn and Horse & Farrier are two wonderful choices close by, where you can enjoy a bite to eat, before or after enjoying the surrounding wonders of Keswick Golf Club, the Threlkeld Quarry & Mining Museum, and Thornsgill Beck.
