    Had a lovely stay at this quirky cottage which was cosy and comfortable. Easy walk to Penrith and great location for some wonderful days out in the lakes. Would certainly recommend and would return.

    Lovely little cottage, ideal base for exploring the lakes. The owner Elizabeth came to introduce herself and made sure we were happy in the cottage. Our only difficulty was the front garden not being secure, for our dog, but there were plenty of green spaces nearby to walk.
