    • “The host family is very, very friendly. We felt most welcome and being well looked after. They are very helpful, and caring, and have an eye on little things which make guests feel comfortable and at home. Everything ist neat and clean and fresh and looks like new. It's a perfectly traditional atmosphere in and around the house, one can smell the freshness of the air, the peaceful landscape, the only sounds to be heard are coming from the sheep and hens and the little stream behind the house, which makes the place a little paradise. We enjoyed every single Minute being there.”

    Mrs Heidemann, Meppen, April 2018

    • “A cosy homely cottage with everything you could need for your stay. We were made to feel welcome by Christine and her family and we will definitely return for a 3rd time soon.”

    Mrs Lea, Barnsley, March 2018

    • “We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful cottage and would recommend it to everyone. There were lots of extra little touches and the cottage was spotless. The owners were very welcoming and could not do enough for us.”

    Mrs Cox, Grimsby, March 2018

    • “The pictures and description on the website didn’t do the cottage justice. It was excellent! One of the best we have stayed in. Spotlessly clean and beautifully finished. Little touches like homemade biscuits, toiletries and farm fresh eggs (laid by the chickens you see from the kitchen window!) make it even more special. The owners are lovely and friendly, making you feel totally at home. We would definitely go back again.”

    Mrs Webb, Durham, February 2018

    • “I can honestly say this is one of the best cottages in the Lake District, which is why I have been there three times so far over the years and I hope to use it again in the future.”

    Mr Remblance, Brandon, September 2017
