    • “We stayed here for a long weekend when my partner did the Windermere marathon. It was absolutely spotless and had a lovely cosy feel. There was everything you might need here and although traditional in style, the kitchen and bathroom are newly refurbished and tastefully modern. We both slept so well and really felt at home. We would definitely come and stay here again and will be recommending the cottage to friends and family.”

    • “On arrival the cottage was very clean and welcoming, with a homely feel. It was easy to find and the village was lovely although there were no shops or pubs etc it was just what we wanted as Shap was only 8-10 mins away. We havde always stayed in the Lakes before and were so pleased to have made this choice. Roll on next year!!!”

    • “The objective was to get an affordable part week accommodation near to the Lake Districk mountains. We got this but the lovely extra touches by the owner, such as homemade cake on arrival, made the stay extra special. If they had had an open roaring fire I would have tried to buy the place there and then.”
