We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was kept to a good standard. The only issue we had was the access to the parking. Contractors were converting one of the properties down the road and parked so we couldn’t get past I have to say they did move their van when asked to. Also the access road is very narrow and there was nowhere to turn the car round so we had to reverse all the way down each morning - not an ideal scenario!

Lovely place to relax or enjoy the splendors of the Lakes. When the sun is out the outside areas are great traps, with views of the lake too.

Lovely cottage in an excellent location. Very clean and tidy. Beds were very comfortable and the balcony was a lovely feature. Though the access drive is long and narrow, its straight, so if you are comfortable reversing it's fine. There were a few things that we noted: The main couches should probably be replaced as they are quite low and sunken so a bit uncomfortable. The fridge is very small and could do with some kitchen essentials like cutting boards or surface protectors for food prep. The bathroom/shower is lovely; it would be nice if there was a shelf in the shower to put your shampoo instead of having to put it on the shower floor. Also a holder for toothbrushes would be convenient. Overall it was a great cottage and very spacious. We would stay again and recommend it to others.
