    • “It was very comfortable and would go again.”

    Mrs Adkins, Warrington, September 2018

    • “Lovely cottage, nice and quiet but close to lots of good places to go. Weather on and off but still managed to take our two dogs out most days. Very busy at Ambleside and Windermere, but found places where it was quieter ( one of our dogs doesn’t like crowds!). Would go again.”

    Mrs Chester, Kidderminster, August 2018

    • “Perfect for pets and easy to find with all required amenities”

    Jones, Hereford, July 2018

    • “Glen cottage is in a lovely rural setting. It was very comfortable and spacious. Our small dog did not like the dog field as there were lots of large thick tall reed type grass. The weather was spectacular, a couple of sun loungers would have been ideal. The Sportsman’s Pub just off the A66 served excellent meals. The owners were very friendly and helpful. A great holiday.”

    Mrs Hardiman, Swindon, June 2018
