Reviews

Mrs Milburn
December 2015
The cottage was very cosy, warm and well equipped. There was plenty of room for 10 people. We all enjoyed the grounds, walks and indoor swimming pool. The staff were friendly, helpful and on hand if you required any assistance but not intrusive.

An amazing few days in an amazing cottage.

The property was located in an old stable yard, that had been converted into several lettings and although there were quite a few other people about, we never felt over looked or crowded. Staff were on sight every day and addressed any problems immediately. We will definitely go back.

This was an amazing week. The weather was gorgeous, the cottage was excellent and the colours in the trees were beautiful. The swimming pool was enjoyed by all and a bonus. I would definitely recommend Graythwaite to friends but would rather keep it for myself!
