An absolutely beautiful place, which really did have everything you could possibly need. The hot tub was wonderful with beautiful views of the countryside while relaxing. The kids loved the games room which was so well equipped. A lovely place and lovely people. Hope to be back again soon.

This was the nicest holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. The owners had considered every detail. The beds were very comfy and the furnishings of a very high standard. The games room and hot tub were a big hit with the family. We would definitely consider going back.

Absolutely amazing weekend at this beautiful cottage, we hardly left the cottage all weekend and had so much fun with all of the games and of course the hot tub, which had stunning views of the Lake District and the coast. We felt like we were the only people for miles, it was lovely and private and lots of personal touches in the cottage itself which is even more amazing than the pictures! Very, very high standard, I would recommend to anyone, and would definitely stay again! Special thank you to the owners for making us feel so welcome and and at home!

Spacious, quiet, well equipped and comfortable cottage set in its own grounds with fabulous view of the Irish Sea to the front and with lovely fells to the rear. The very friendly lovely owners have tried to provide everything you would need to have a great holiday there. We had such a good time there that we plan to return next year. I would highly recommend this cottage for family or friends to get together and have fun or just chill out.

The hot tub was gorgeous with an amazing view. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could think of and more. All rooms were clean and tidy and decorated very well.

We booked this cottage for a long weekend to celebrate my mother in law's birthday. Having stayed in holiday cottages before it's often a chance as to whether the pictures give you a good impression of what you are getting or not. In this case they just don't do the cottage justice. There is everything that you could possibly need. I think there was enough cutlery that even if we hadn't put the dishwasher on all weekend we still wouldn't have run out and the second fridge freezer in the games room is a fantastic idea. The games room with pool table, table tennis, air hockey, darts, books, board games and DVD's is ideal for children young and old and of coarse Dad! We had a wonderful weekend Kath the owner couldn't have been more helpful, we will certainly be returning.

This was a wonderful cottage where the attention to detail was exceptional. The owners had thought of everything that you possibly need to make this a great holiday. The games room was a huge hit with enough board games to keep everyone happy on the wettest afternoon. The pool table and table tennis was also much appreciated. Everyone loved the hot tub, and it was great that coloured towels were supplied for use out of doors. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, and there was also a gas fired BBQ for sunny evenings. This was a lovely cottage away from the very busy lakes area (Windermere) - very well placed for the coast (and there are some lovely sandy beaches) and very convenient for scafell pike. We would definitely want to go back to this cottage. This was a great cottage for a group of friends or extended family group.

10 of us booked to stay here for a long weekend in May and we all had an amazing time. Thankfully the weather was great, so we made good use of the hot tub. It was great to relax in the hot tub and admire the fantastic views. The cottage was very clean, with a lot of extra facilities for the BBQ etc. The owners were always on hand to sort any issues we had (which was our fault as we knocked the wrong button on the hot tub!) Kath and Jim are lovely, friendly people and we all look forward to seeing them again when we book our next weekend away!
