The hot tub is a brilliant feature and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Overall an excellent cottage.

The owner ensured that we had everything we needed and more. Being on a farm was fabulous; so interesting and entertaining. The lambs in particular, were hilarious. We were never disturbed as we couldn't hear a thing once the doors are closed.

We found the cottage extremely cosy and comfortable. It was well equipped, easy to find and the hot tub was a real treat! The location was just great - a short walk to the village and a little bit off the beaten track, with lots of walking and the lake so close.

We had a super week in the beautiful Lake District. So much to see and do with our 5 year old daughter from visits to National Trust properties to walking and a must do is the treetop trees!

A beautiful quiet location with views over the fields towards the lake and hills. Only a fifteen minute walk into Hawkshead either along a country path or by road.
