This holiday cottage, with beams salvaged from shipwrecks on the Cumbrian coast, lies in an idyllic rural location.

Surrounded by stunning dramatic scenery, these delightful 17th-century holiday cottages (ref LVL and LZL) lie in a walker’s and nature lover’s paradise. Take the path to Stanley Force Waterfall, discover the ‘jewels’ of the River Esk and the ancient village of Boot, or walk to Devoke Water, the largest tarn in the Lake District. Majestic Wastwater, the coast and unspoilt beaches are a short drive away. The adjoining cottages, with beams salvaged from shipwrecks on the Cumbrian coast and wood-burning stoves, lie in an idyllic rural location, forming part of a small former farmstead accessed from the fell road by a gated unmade track. Shop and pub 3 miles.

Step to entrance. Beamed open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove, French doors to gardens and step up to open-plan kitchen area. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Narrow stairs to first floor: Galleried room leading to double bedroom with four-poster bed.

    The cottage was perfect for two people, and although it was a little remote, that was exactly why we booked it and it wasn't that difficult to find with the directions. The views in the day were spectacular and the clear night skies showed a display of stars which you just don't get unless you are totally removed from any centres of habitation. There are several walks right from the cottage door - we did the one to the waterfall and then on to Boot, which was a lovely way to spend the morning, and the Boot Inn is well worth a visit for tea and scones at the end. Although the cottage was a little chilly when we arrived, the heaters soon warmed it up, and putting them on 1st thing and in the evening kept it warm. We got the log burner going one night (very easy) and that gave out so much heat we had to turn everything else off; and it hardly used any logs. The kitchen is well equipped for its size - the only suggestion we'd make is that the pans hanging from the ceiling over the sink/cooker be relocated to hooks on the wall as otherwise it's easy to knock yourself out on a pan while cooking. We had a wonderful time, and the bottle of wine which was on the table to welcome us when we arrived was an added bonus!

    Me and my partner chose this cottage as our first ever holiday destination together. We loved it, it was great for getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. 5 days without WIFI and mobile signal was actually a relief! (Advice: If you're desperate for signal, you can pick up O2 by sitting on the bench outside!) The cottage had everything you would need, the wood burner was perfect to come back to after a long day out. The bed was comfortable and the overall cleanliness was spot-on. Also, the ring binder with advice and details of local amenities was a great touch, definitely needed when you're in such a remote location. The local people are also very helpful and forthcoming. The King George Pub was amazing, it is approximately 10 minutes down the road. We ate there twice and enjoyed it. The walk down to Stanley Force Waterfall was practically on your doorstep. Me and my partner are definitely looking to book this property again next year. We were sad to leave :(

    Our holiday in Ganny Cottage was perfect due to several things; the weather was fab, the location was perfect and the fact that we had the place to ourselves with no one in the adjacent cottage. Had the weather been not so kind and had there been another family next door it could have been very different. You are so close to the neighbours also sharing the garden and outside areas that you would need to be very compatible. We had visions of up to 6 (probably smoking) adults and/or children complete with dogs! We were a middle aged couple looking for a remote location and we certainly got it. The only downside with the property (as has been pointed out in previous reviews) is that the bed wants scrapping! It makes so much noise! and if you go in mid summer watch out for the biting insects, esp the horseflies! Otherwise its a great location for exploring the Esk valley and adjacent Duddon valley. but I hope you get great neighbours!

    Nice cosy cottage superb location all the amenities you need within the cottage or shops n pubs a drive away which you don't mind because of those views. May need a little bit of an update sofa etc but we loved our break

    Great cottage if you really want to get away from it all, very remote, if your a fell walker then this would be a great base, if your more of a leisure seeker and want to stroll around the lakes then you'd be better off with something closer to one of the main towns. The cottage itself is a great little place, well stocked kitchen and very clean
