Description

Stay in the Duddon valley, an unspoilt jewel within the Lake District National Park, excellent for walking, fishing and touring this beautiful area.

Dating back to 1706, this completely renovated holiday cottage, the end of three adjoining cottages is situated in the Duddon valley, an unspoilt jewel within the Lake District National Park which boasts wildlife including red squirrels and buzzards. Varied walks from the cottage. The garden offers views up the valley. The owner’s land includes a section of the River Duddon, which hosts salmon and sea trout (two fishing permits provided, Environment Agency licence from PO). The Duddon Valley is a jewel in the crown of Cumbria, situated between Coniston and Eskdale, remote, unspoilt and perhaps the most idyllic corner of the Lake District. The Duddon Valley will delight walkers, mountain bikers, climbers, nature lovers and those who enjoy the peace and beauty of the countryside. The tiny villages of Ulpha and Seathwaite are two focal points of the valley. Seathwaite, situated near the end of the ancient Walna Scar road, boasts the 16th century Newfield Inn, where good home-cooked food, real ales and a warm welcome await, all day all year. Shop/PO 40 yards, pub within 3 miles.

    Comfortable well equipped cottage. Shower was a bit of a problem. Parking not very good as builder's were re tiling some of the roof. Scaffolding was being put up . It would have been nice to have been told that this was happening. Views from the cottage were lovely.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Apologies for the scaffolding. We should have let you know in advance, although this was difficult because the builder was uncertain as to his start date. The good news is that the work is now finished and the scaffolding has gone. As for the shower - see reply below. The electric shower is only about 2 years old and this is how it came.

    A cottage in a great location, that particularly worked well with friends staying in adjoining cottage. It was very well prepared, and the owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. The cottage is slightly let down by being cramped downstairs, furniture could do with a refresh at some point, and the shower upstairs is both odd and terrifying (in terms of the warnings). But overall a lovely place for a family holiday with friends next door.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. The settees were replaced only 4 years ago and we use 2 sets of covers. The floor was replaced last year. The Ikea table and chairs are all in good condition. We do have a standard Cottages.com warning about running the shower for 2 minutes before getting in. This is to avoid the very remote possibility of contracting Legionnaires disease.

    It was the extra little touches that we appreciated most. The Christmas tree, the bottle of wine and the milk in the fridge. A lovely welcome. The cottage itself has a special charm, we love it.a

    Very pleasant house, enjoyed by us all. However, we felt it was located in a remote area. Alas, we had poor weather, which never helps.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your reply. The property is as advertised, rural and remote. I am sorry the weather was not good for your stay, that's something we have no control over.

    My husband and I had a lovely stay in the cottage with our 1 year old daughter. The cottage is clean, comfortable and quiet in a lovely area. Any issues (in our case the DVD player wasn't working) were dealt with immediately and the cottage was equipped with everything we could need. We would love to return for another stay and would definitely recommend to others.

    This is the second time we have visited The Cottage as we prefer this remoter part of The Lakes. It is an ideal base for exploring most parts of Cumbria and The Cottage is homely and has everything you need for up to five people. We can highly recommend. We appreciated the call from David the owner to check whether all was to our liking and that we had no problems.

    A lovely cottage in a lovely spot, the countryside around the cottage is superb. The owners were extremely helpful, even volunteering to loan a fishing rod.
