Description

This holiday cottage, with beams salvaged from shipwrecks on the Cumbrian coast, lies in an idyllic rural location.

Surrounded by stunning dramatic scenery, these delightful 17th-century holiday cottages (ref LVL and LZL) lie in a walker’s and nature lover’s paradise. Take the path to Stanley Force Waterfall, discover the ‘jewels’ of the River Esk and the ancient village of Boot, or walk to Devoke Water, the largest tarn in the Lake District. Majestic Wastwater, the coast and unspoilt beaches are a short drive away. The adjoining cottages, with beams salvaged from shipwrecks on the Cumbrian coast and wood-burning stoves, lie in an idyllic rural location, forming part of a small former farmstead accessed from the fell road by a gated unmade track. Shop and pub 3 miles.

Step to entrance. Beamed open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove, French doors to gardens and step up to open-plan kitchen area. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Narrow stairs to first floor: Galleried room leading to double bedroom with four-poster bed.

    Nice cottage but using the wood burner in such a small space resulted in all of our clothing smelling of smoke! Luckily we visited during the summer. In winter with 2 blowers, two tiny wall mounted radiators and just one heater upstairs I suspect this cottage would be pretty cold.

    If you are looking for a beautiful, quiet, out of the way place, this is it.

    Sorry we weren't very well when we went both full of cold not experienced walkers bit too far out even to the local shop lot of hill nothing really within walking distance.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am sorry to hear that you were both full of cold when you stayed with us for the Bank Holiday weekend, and felt unable to enjoy the record breaking temperatures to the full. Our rural location with its panoramic views and numerous walks from the cottage door step, that suit all abilities, is something our guests usually love and return for. I do hope you have more success next time in choosing a cottage that meets your particular needs.

    We stayed in Ganny Cottage for 4 days over Christmas and enjoyed every minute. The cottage is in a very rural location which is just what we were after. The directions given are accurate. The cottage has everything you need, toilet roll, handsoap, kitchen roll, tea, coffee, salt and pepper and all the pots, pans, crockery and cutlery you need. I cooked a meal for 6 on Boxing Day with no problems. The wood burner warms up the cottage quite quickly, we had gales and freezing weather but were snug and warm andthere are extra heaters around the place if needed.We were fortunate enough to have the owners staying next door during our trip. They kindly put the heating on for our arrival and left us a bottle of wine and biscuits. When the weather forecasted snow they came round with more coal and wood.If I had any negative comment it would be lack of phone and internet. This would not normally bother us but it was Christmas and we had no way to contact our family. All in all we had the perfect break and would stay again.

    We had a fantastic time spent in this lovely cottage. The weather unfortunately was very wet but we enjoyed curling up in front of the wood burner and cooking in the small but well equipped kitchen. It is in a rural location but we still managed to get our Tesco shop delivered to the cottage! Highly recommended.
