Tree Tops Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Tree Tops is a self contained wing of a former Victorian hospital in the hamlet of Meathop just three miles from Grange-over-Sands in Cumbria. Boasting one double bedroom with an ensuite and one twin room as well as a family bathroom, this cottage can sleep four people. The cottage also contains a fitted kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room. Outside the property is an allocated parking space for one car and an enclosed private garden across the courtyard from the property with the additional benefit of the use of shared grounds with garden furniture. Perfectly placed for discovering the southern Lake District, Tree Tops is a lovely holiday home for a small family.

Situated in the south of the Lake District National Park and just a few miles from the coastal estuary is the small hamlet of Meathop. Positioned in a quiet and peaceful area and occupying a rural location on the path of the Cumbrian Coastal Way, the village is close to Lindale on the slopes of Hampsfield Fell. Cartmel, with its famous annual horse race, and the pretty coastal resorts of Arnside and Grange are all within easy driving distance and make fantastic places to visit. Lake Windermere and the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Newby Bridge are also close by and still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many visitors over the years. Set amidst the spectacular southern lakes, Meathop makes an inspiring choice for a lovely holiday in a picturesque area.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Very peaceful place. Plenty of room and good facilities, the welcoming touches were very much appreciated. The owner was very pleasant and helpful when we had to contact her with a small problem.

Miss Watkin

There were many walks straight from the cottage. Location was quaint and a local hotel bar which was friendly and only a few minutes away. Kitchen is well equipped so cooking was made easy. Communication with the cottage owner was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Mrs Joppa

How comfortable the accommodation was and how well equipped it was. Nice room not listed on details which was the craft room, made handmade cards in this room and did not have to tidy up every day.
Mrs Scott
August 2012
It was an ideal location for us and the cottage was was a lot bigger than we expected. It was so comfy and cosy and in a very peaceful area. It was well stocked, and was rather sweet that they left us eggs,bread,wine and butter. We would love to stay here again and have already passed these details on couple of family members.
Mrs Simpson

Tree Tops was very clean and welcoming. The location was commutable to lots of areas in the Lake District. A nearby hotel with a dog friendly bar was ideal. Flowers and essentials were a nice touch, including something for the dog. The cottage was well equipped for bad weather too, with a huge TV and plenty of DVDs and board games.
Miss Blundell

Everything was just great! It was a lovely clean and tidy cottage, very comfortable and with good provisions. Everything was there - even a pint of fresh milk and fresh flowers, excellent!

We had a really lovely week at Tree Tops. The cottage was more than we expected. The owners have great taste and seemed to have thought of everything. It was a lovely touch to have left fresh flowers and wine for our arrival, as well as essentials such as bread, butter, milk etc and all the toiletries we could need. It was a very peaceful spot and we really unwound. Many thanks.

Mr Thompson

We found Tree Tops clean and comfortable, in very tranquil surroundings. It was also very well equipped, with a friendly owner who definitely had made it a home-from-home, with lots of extras - even for our dog! Thanks.
Mrs Valentine
April 2011
First visit to the Lakes and we were very impressed with everything. Treetops was one of the best houses we have stayed in and there have been many. Even the bed was comfy which was an added bonus. We will return to explore more of the area and use your company again.
Mrs Dumbleton
June 2010
Wonderfully peaceful location, so tranquil. Birds were actually feeding at the kitchen window. Near to a pub, shops and ice cream farm a few minutes away. Good restaurants nearby. Beautiful surroundings and weather was great. Great base to tour the whole of the Lake District from. We will be coming back! Thanks!

Good location. Not too far to drive to the towns and villages. Owners left us a lovely welcome pack including chocolates and even treats for the dog, Charlie. Cottage was very much home from home.
Mrs Burt

Everything had been thought of, a home from home literally. All the extras such as DVD's, games, milk bread on arrival. Bird feeders up so you could have breakfast and see the birds.
Miss Simpson
July 2009

Mrs Weaver

This is the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. Everything was high quality, cutlery, towels, bed linen, furnishings, everything. All this and a very thoughtful owner who supplied extras such as milk, bread and eggs on your arrival.
Mr Mrs Cross

It was good to find a warm and comfortable home from home where we could relax before the real Christmas rush sets in. The owners of the cottage were very helpful and welcoming. The location gave easy access to the southern lakes and ample opportunity to explore.
Miss Brooks
May 2007
The property was in a great location, very quiet but not far from local shops and the excellent road system that was well signed posted to all the places of interest. The upside down interior was great - it lived up to it's name Tree Tops. Very well presented and we will be returning in the future. Lots of little touches - flowers, books, games, supply of milk bread - very welcome after our long journey.
Mrs Mansfield
April 2007
Great accomodation with extra touches such as bread milk etc. Good location to explore the south lakes.
Mr Patterson
July 2007
Beautiful part of the country with enough to keep you occupied for months, never mind weeks! Tree Tops was superbly placed for almost everywhere we wanted to go and was a real joy to return to each day - it truly was home from home. It contributed enormously to the holiday as a whole.
Mr Lewis
April 2007
Tree tops is set in wonderful surroundings. Walks in the Lake District is very accessible, and overall it was a wonderful holiday. Tree Tops was excellent and had everything we needed.
Mr Mrs Wilson
February 2007
Very high standard of furnishings. Many 'extras' that showed a high level of thoughtfulness. The location was a dream. Better than 'home from home'!
Mr Mrs Wilson
February 2007
Excellent accommodation, ideally situated.
Mr Mrs Abbott

A really beautiful part of the world in which to take a relaxing break away from city life. The apartment and amenities at Tree Tops were first rate and the owner was extremely welcoming and helpful. I would highly recommend this location to friends and family.

Excellent accommodation. Everything you could need and more.
Ms Waller
November 2006
We found the property to be of exceptional standard. It had high ceilings - important if you are 6' 4 - and was warm! All of the fixtures and fittings were of excellent quality and the cleanliness could not be faulted. It would appear from the visitors book that we are not alone in our findings.
Mr Harrison
April 2006
The owner, thought of all those little extras. The scenery was excellent. Can't wait to go back!
Mrs Watson
November 2006
Superior decor and equipment.
Mrs Booth
September 2006
Everything at the cottage was perfect with many homely touches. I have never stayed in self catering accomodation which was so well thought about. We wanted for nothing. Even the neighbours were friendly. It was a pleasure to stay there.
Mr Davies

Received excellent welcome pack from owners.
Mrs Brockbank
May 2006
Excellent accommodation.
Mrs Warburton
February 2006
The accommodation was faultless. It was in a lovely spot, furnished and decorated to a high standard and had everything anyone could possibly need whilst on holiday - a real home from home. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to explore the south Lakes.
Mr Coad
August 2006
A beautifully quiet location in a beautifully presented cottage. Really unusual but we loved it.
Mr Thomas
July 2006
The property itself was in a lovely setting. It was furnished and equipped to a very high standard. There was a wide range of basic foodstuffs etc in the kitchen. I have already recommended this property to family, friends and colleagues, and will continue to do so. I will also return.
June 2013
The cottage was lovely and homely, had everything and more that we required. The location was perfect, very close to main roads around the area but off the beaten track enough so we were happy. There's a wealth of leaflets for walks and activities making planning our weekend much easier! The dogs also loved it;)
Dean C
August 2015
Fantastic cottage in a lovely location. The landlady had put in place the basics, grocery wise, that you need on your first evening/morning so that you didn't have to go straight out and buy things. Little touches like a bottle of wine and toiletries already in the amenities were appreciated. Plenty of towels available and lots of games, DVD's and information leaflets around. Extra heaters available as well as torches in the main entrance. All the beds were very comfy. All in all an excellent cottage and amenities.
April 2013
This was the best home we have ever rented! It didn't feel like a rental, that's why I'm referring to it as a home. So clean and well taken care of. Everything, and more was there for us when we arrived. Our host even went the extra mile, leaving us welcome gifts for Valentines Day, who does that? The hotel and restaurant were within a five minute walk through the woods. No cooking hurray! Excellent value for money. Ideally placed for touring the Lake District. Lovely to come home to at the end of a busy day, or to stay in all day, cosy and warm! I will certainly recommend this rental to everyone, and we will certainly be returning, only next time it will be for longer! Highly recommend, Six stars!!!
January 2012
Tree Tops is a fabulous place to stay. The owner, Carol has thought of everything you need. We were welcomed by a bottle of wine, milk, butter,bread and even some treats for our dog. I would not hesitate to recomend this lovely cottage to anyone
January 2013
Very well equipped, furnished to a high standard,owner thinks of everything and provides more than you expect , treats were left for the dog and a bottle of wine for ourselves. A real home from home we would definately recommend to everyone. Very well positioned for lakes and coast
September 2011
Every thing about Tree Tops came up to our satisfaction.It was very well equiped and comfortable.It is in a very quiet tranquil location.Due to the number of steps it could present problems to any one who as difficulty climbing steps.

Thomson Family

Welcome pack was fantastic. Accomodation was lovely. Very clean,tidy and well equipped. Nice quirky layout. Quiet and secluded location. Would have been nice if there was more allocated/planned walks from the cottage.
December 2009
We received excellent service. The facilities were first class. Well stocked in all departments. We had good support from the owners. No downside comments to make at all. Amazed at size of TV in lounge! Handy for the Woodland Hotel for an evening meal with family.
