  • “WiFi is virtually non-existent, router is in another cottage.”

    No telephone signal on Three or O2. Ideal if you want to be left alone but not if you need to be in contact.

    No telephone signal on Three or O2. Ideal if you want to be left alone but not if you need to be in contact. Location of the cottage is terrific, easy walking into Coniston, Hawkshead and Grizedale Forest. Could have happily stayed another week or two
