    Fantastic property in a great central location. Well equipped and really surprised by the lovely welcome hamper. Only complaint would be lack of a second toilet but guess you can't really do much about that!

    A sixth straight return to these cottages says it all. They are perfectly placed to explore any part of this area of the Lakes and are also just far enough away from the hive of activity in the town. The cottage has everything you need for two people to live comfortably for their stay. Park the car and walk or cycle in any direction to do a different route everyday. The additional storage space for cycles makes this cottage our first choice stay every year. The welcome basket from the owner makes you feel that they are committed to ensuring your stay starts and finishes in a positive manner. Thank you so much to the owner for yet another perfect holiday.
