    • “My friend booked this (she is the name on the authenticity statement). We were a large group of 8 ladies only, staying in the cottage for a 50th birthday weekend. The layout was absolutely perfect for us, especially as the kitchen / dining room / sitting area were open plan, so we could all spend lots of time together (and we danced a lot too - plenty of room, even for a waltz!!). The kitchen seemed new and had more than enough crockery / cutlery / utensils / glasses / etc for our party, with spares. We did have some difficulty making the oven and the dishwasher work (we managed it but maybe by fluke). The table is very large & had enough chairs and room for all of us. There was a utility room at the back entrance, next to the kitchen, which contained the very large fridge / freezer, as well as other storage and coat hooks. There was an extractor fan on the wall next to the key unit, just outside the back door, and this created a lot of fumes which came into the house when the door was open (the fumes could also be smelled in the small, single room directly above the extractor unit). The rest of the downstairs had a living room (very spacious, plenty of room to all sit in - but we didn't use it much, as it was so comfy sitting around in the kitchen. The front door opened onto a massive hallway, with more coat hooks and plenty of space for boots, etc. Also, there was a downstairs loo. Upstairs, the bedrooms were all lovely (including the single one, which, although wasn't en-suite, felt like it because the bathroom was only just across the corridor) and a couple of them were very impressive indeed. Another double room shared the 'house' bathroom. This didn't cause any inconvenience at all, as so many rooms were en-suite. There was a little sitting area at the top of the stairs, which is lovely to look at but nobody used it. The cottage is situated on quite a busy road. We walked to the local pub (Queen's Head) on our first night. Can highly recommend a visit - it really does do the most fantastic Sunday lunches ever!! BUT take a torch with you - there're no street lights to help you find your way back to the cottage and it's pretty dangerous walking in pitch black! We went for a walk during our stay, straight from the cottage, left up the lane and in a circle, turning right at the top of the lane. We made the mistake of heading back along the road. It's completely dangerous but we didn't know that until it was too late! Traffic goes very fast along there and there are many blind corners. I would recommend aiming for Pooley Bridge or Aira Force or Lowther for walks, which will involve a short drive to your starting point. Don't forget to take your own towels as they are not supplied. There is an issue with one of the showers. There is not a wall fixture for the shower head to hang from, so it has to be held by hand, causing difficulty (eg, one-handed washing of hair etc). I would stay in this cottage again and I highly recommend it.”

    • “Spacious, clean and well positioned holiday home”

    • “Hunter's Chase is a large, modern well equipped house, ideally positioned for visiting the Northern Lake District. We visited with a large, mixed age group of 9 from an 8 year old to Grandad in his 80s. All of the bedrooms were well appointed with plenty of storage space. A total of 4 bathrooms plus a downstairs cloakroom meant there were no arguments or queues for the toilet! The two main bedrooms were equipped with large flat screen tvs as well as the lounge. We also made good use of the wi-fi in the house. The kitchen was newly fitted and very well equipped with every type of crockery, cutlery and cooking implement you might require as well as a dishwasher and a large fridge freezer. It's located in a lovely village (although we never tried the pub) with the actual position being very quiet with views over fields and a large garden good for playing ball games. Pooley Bridge nearby has several pubs and a lovely beach by the river and Penrith, also not far away, is a traditional market town with facilities including a swimming pool, cinema and the normal array of supermarkets.”

    • “We were a group of 9 and the accommodation suited us perfectly. Plenty of space to relax and kitchen well equipped. Comfortable beds and plenty of hot water ( both essential when we were there for 26 mile charity hike). Contrary to the notes towels were provided. We struggled to find key box on arrival but a neighbour told us where it was.”

    Dr Clay, Knaresborough, July 2018

Regional Information

PENRITH Keswick 17 miles; Carlisle 20 miles. The bustling market town of Penrith, once the capital of Cumbria, enjoys a central position between the Lake District and North Pennines and is ideally placed for taking in all that the region has to offer. Renowned for its wealth of specialist shops, the sandstone buildings of Penrith hide intriguing yards, lanes and alleyways, with a myriad of attractive cottages, gardens and little shops. With a wide choice of excellent pubs, hotels, restaurants and entertainment, Penrith also offers a museum, and Millennium Trails round the historic city streets. Within easy reach of the town is Rheged – an innovative visitor centre with shops, restaurants, exhibitions and a giant cinema screen showing educational and informative films. Brougham Castle (The Windsor of the North), Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England) and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away, as is the stunning scenery of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
