Fantastic cottage with everything needed to make our break away perfect. We will certainly recommend to friends/family and will be back ourselves in the future. Ideally situated to explore The Lake District.

The location was very good and the cottage had nice views. It was warm, cosy and nice to come back to after being out all day walking in the cold and snow. The free Wi-Fi was very good.

The whole cottage as a whole was outstanding to be honest. We felt at home as soon as we entered. It was cosy yet very modern. Me and my partner would definitely come back during the summer. We would recommend to everyone!

Despite being a holiday let the cottage has a 'home from home' feel. Extremely well appointed and all appliances in full working order and easy to use. Superb cottage for couples, so peaceful and relaxing in the area surrounding it. Highly recommended.

Absolutely loved this cottage, it was a home from home. We cooked a couple of nights and found there was everything we needed. Cannot fault the place with even one thing! It was spotlessly clean and in the perfect location for us too. Would definitely return. The pictures don't do it justice.

Superbly appointed cottage in a beautiful, peaceful location. Facilities could not have been better from the fantastic kitchen and bathroom to the outside areas for sitting and soaking up the sun (weather was excellent for the time of year).
