  • “My son (8 years old) enjoyed our stay here.”

    The cottage has everything you need for a trouble free hub for your Lake District experience. The owners have thought of everything and the care taker is hands on and helpful. Kitchen is fully equipped. Bathrooms are clean. The bedrooms are downstairs which keeps them cool during the summer, an absolute plus. Closest super market is 10 minutes away but you can easily swing by on your way back to the cottage so not a huge problem. The cottage is clean, spacious and just extremely comfortable and private. Small garden at the back which catches the evening sun. We loved it and will absolutely be booking it again.
