    Lovely comfortable cottage that is very well equipped for self catering. Superb location, great beaches for dogs at Seascale and St Bees, Wastwater has to be a must with stunning scenery. Although cottage is attached to owners accomodation, this did not detract from the peace and tranquility there. Also wonderful views from cottage and garden. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. The beds were certainly very comfortable but I did drop the comfort rating a notch as I did feel the sofas were a little tired. Despite the fact that we had a very cold week with sleet and hail in April, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (as did our Irish Red and White Setter) and we can't wait to go again!

    Second stay at this cottage, would recommend again. It's very homely, has everything you'd need and more. Great new extended patio, garden perfect for sitting out in the evenings. If you love walking/hiking, this cottage is very close to the best views and paths in Cumbia. Looking forward to next year, same cottage of cause!!!

    Cottage has plenty of bedroom space, but could be a bit cosy if their were more than just the two of us and our 2 Westies. Garden was great, if a bit shadowed by the surrounding trees and small dogs may be able to escape under the fence.

    The Cottage was an excellent base for our holiday in the Lake District, good local walks, a steam railway 15 minutes away what's not to like! it suited our idea of a holiday perfectly.

    Lovely cottage with a beautiful garden, very dog friendly. The owners were there to meet us and show us where everything was. Amazing views of the mountains from the bedroom. And loads of dog friendly things to do around.
