    “Very good location for the northern part of the Lakes.”

    The cottage is quirky but has wonderful views from every window. Our 3 dogs enjoyed the garden and the small field a few yards away that they could run amok in. ...

    The cottage is quirky but has wonderful views from every window. Our 3 dogs enjoyed the garden and the small field a few yards away that they could run amok in. Apart from having to buy some logs an sticks the house was warm enough for our family of 6. There is plenty of room for us all to feel comfortable. The kitchen is a little worn in places, the Microwave needs replacing as there is buttons missing, if your lucky you can get it going, also the 1 and only frying pan is bent underneath so it's not heating up properly. All in all we had a good time even when it rained and there was hailstone and 3 inch of snow one morning.
