    • “We rented the cottage for a family celebration weekend break. We were all delighted with the location, views and privacy that we found when we arrived, and the cottage was beautiful. All of the rooms were clean and the cottage was large enough to accommodate five adults easily. The hot tub was an added bonus at the end of a long rewarding walk.”

    • “Loved our weeks family stay at Underwood - a beautiful, dog friendly, spacious cottage that had everything we needed and more. It was very comfortable, clean and lovely to come back to after a day out and about. Very peaceful and relaxing, with amazing views. The cottage is a great place to base yourself to explore other towns and lakes. But we also loved Coniston village and the lake itself- enjoyed kayaking and the motor boats. Also visited and enjoyed a excellent meal at one of the local pubs 5 mins drive up the road at Torver. Some lovely walks direct from the cottage to the waters edge and on to Coniston. We ended every day with a dip in the hot tub under the stars, perfect! The owners were very friendly and we would highly recommend Underwood to anyone considering a visit to the Lakes.”

    • “I chose Underwood Cottage as it seemed to fit the bill - 3 bedrooms with en-suites plus a hot tub in beautiful surroundings to celebrate my 60th birthday with adult children & partners. I chose well! It was advertised as welcoming dogs and as we don't have a dog, I did wonder if the cottage might show "doggy wear and tear" . However, Underwood was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. An added bonus was that we could walk "The old Man of Coniston" from the doorstep together with many other delightful walks and bike rides without the need to get in the car. The weather was unseasonably cold but the cottage was snug and warm and we had no need to light the woodburner ( mores the pity). We would definitely book again.”

    • “We had an excellent long weekend at Underwood with 3 generations of family celebrating a diamond wedding anniversary. It was good that all the bedrooms were ensuite and that it was mostly on one level ,only the conservatory had steps .it was well equipped, very clean and comfortable . It would have been nice if the heating had been on for our arrival as it was cold that day but it did warm up when we lit the fire and boosted the central heating . Overall it was a good few days and I have no qualms about recommending this cottage .”

    Mr Heeley, Bakewell, October 2018

    • “We enjoyed our stay in this clean, comfortable and well-equipped cottage. The views are spectacular and the hot tub was a very relaxing place to be at the end of a busy day. The helpful owners live next door and came quickly if we needed anything but otherwise left us to enjoy our time at the property. Our dog was welcomed, settled down quickly, and enjoyed her walks along the safe path across the road. We had plenty of good quality towels and good quality linen on our very comfortable beds. A very enjoyable week.”
