    • “Great holiday cottage in an ideal location to explore The Lakes. Quiet location with approximately 10 acres of beautiful gardens and woodlands. Very friendly owner who greeted us with any advice required. Would definitely use again.”

    Mr Ferris, Swindon, July 2018

    • “As my wife requires a wheelchair to use the shower, we had difficulty getting to it. There is not space for a wheelchair turning circle between the single beds (as stated in your literature), and having to go through the lounge and kitchen made it no easy task! Once in the shower a lot of the seat space is taken up by a pointless grab rail at the back of it. Apart from that, stunning gardens and great walks for our 2 dogs, great time watching the bird feeder frenzy, plus the weather was better than expected.”

    Mrs Mundin, Wirral, April 2018

    • “The cottage was very well equipped, spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Cath and John were very welcoming. I would highly recommend it to others.”

    Mr Woolfall, WIRRAL, April 2018
