    Lovely little cottage. Brilliant location to go exploring. Very comfortable bed. Well equipped. My only niggle was the fridge being very small.

    Cottage was very comfortable and spotless. We luckily had great weather and were able to sit out in the garden and relax just admiring the stunning countryside. Recommend the Cuckoo Brow and Tower Arms, few minutes walk from cottage. Both great food and friendly atmosphere. Definitely would return☺

    This is a lovely and well equipped cottage with beautiful views across open countryside. Some very nice walks can be taken in the local area directly from the cottage. The nearest supermarket is in Hawkshead, about three miles away. Bear in mind that it will cost you for parking there. The ferry across Windermere is near by. The village pub is two minutes away.

    When we arrived at 7pm, no one was expecting us, and the guest house was all shut up. The cottage wasn't ready for us and we had to wait about half an hour for it to be cleaned. However, once we got in, it was lovely, really well equipped and nice and cosy, especially with the log burning stove. Reasonable location for accessing most of the Lakes, and a lovely secluded feel. Would stay again, despite the initial hiccup.

    Amazing little cottage, good size, gorgeous views out of the french windows, decorated with taste and very well equipped - no expense was avoided to make this cottage the comfortable love nest it became for us. Excellent pub almost next door and Beatrix Potter's hamlet is a short walk away. Perfect base for many walks and discovering the beautiful area.
