    • “Ideal Cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Spent our 3rd visit here and cannot praise this cottage enough, hence us staying here so many times. The location is perfect, only a few minutes off M6, but noise is not a problem. The views from the cottage across fields of sheep, even baby lambs in the right season, is something to behold. The location puts you within easy reach of the Lake District, Scotland and the Pennines. The owners of the cottage are really caring of the property, it is spotlessly clean, warm in the colder months and everything is provided for a comfortable stay. Linda and Philip are perfect hosts, knowledgeable of the local area and always willing to help and offer advice if required, yet they never intrude during your stay. They are always on site so if there were any problems they could deal with them right away, happily though we have never had a problem as they, because so much care is put into making sure everything is perfect for guests arriving.”

    • “We were looking for a little hideaway somewhere rural, yet close enough to travel to all the Lake District attractions easily and we were not disappointed. The cottage is surrounded by fields and not much else - even the guest house next door is quiet. The private patio is ideal for a BBQ or breakfast in the sun and if you're lucky you will be visited by the occasional rabbit or lamb. What struck us most was how well kept the grounds were; lawns perfectly mowed and pathways extremely clean and tidy. The cottage too was spotless and decorated in a wonderful fusion of modern and rustic chique. Everything was incredibly clean and nothing felt cheap or tacky. We honestly felt very spoiled for the excellent price we paid. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner with genuine warmth which put us at ease straight away, especially after a very long journey. She provided us with plenty of information and therefore we were well prepared for our holiday. If we needed anything she was there and responded to our queries very quickly. All in all I would say this is a wonderful gem of a cottage and well worth staying at. I would absolutely book again.”

    • “Everything was perfect when my wife and I arrived at the cottage. Very helpful service but also allowed us total privacy which we found very nice. Perfect for exploring Penrith, Ullswater, Windermere by car etc. Very much boutique styling interior wise. Everything was cleaned to a very high standard and as the owners live nearby, there was always someone available if necessary. Gorgeous double patio doors that offer views of lovely fields, perfect in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee to ease into another relaxing day! Many thanks once again!”

    • “Buttercup Cottage is a comfortable and very well-equipped holiday cottage on the edge of the Lake District, and close to Penrith. It is small and compact, with only 2 rooms. Kitchen equipment was good, I can't think of anything I needed that wasn't there. We were puzzled by the lack of a tea towel, as towels and bed linen were included in the price.”

    Mr King, Hawes, September 2018

    • “This Cottage (Buttercup) was one of the best we have stayed in. It was faultless! The position by the M6 Junction 41 was more than handy, the Double Glazing on the cottage was a perfect sound barrier against the motorway traffic. We will definitely go to this Cottage again. Well done Sykes!”
