Just returned from the cottage this week. Booked at short notice and got a great deal.
Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely owners, from the welcome pack (even the dogs were included), suggestions of walks, places to visit and restaurant recommendations.
Often the disadvantage of renting 'dog friendly'properties is that they smell 'dog friendly'- not this one- it was spotlessly clean and fresh, and decorated beautifully. (we almost wished the weather wasnt so good as the place was so cosy and snug-must be great in winter) It has everything you could possibly need- from iron and ironing board, a dvd player, lots of games and books to keep you busy without WIFI (dont be put off - we were terrified at first but in the end it felt very liberating!!) and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. The bathroom is new and the shower is great. The cottage has beautiful wooden floors and stone walls which are really interesting and beautiful.
Burton on Lonsdale itself is a tiny village- its so pretty. Theres a village shop selling everything you could need, with a cafe serving excellent food, and the village pub is really great. The food there is fantastic and varied. Both are a minutes walk from the cottage. In all, we were really pleased with the place and definitely want to return. Definitely recommend it, and have already done so to several of my friends.
