This a lovely cottage in a superb location which is why we had returned. The bed is very comfortable, the chairs/settee much less so. The kitchen is quirky but fully equipped although the dishwasher is showing its age - bottom shelf wheels broken so difficult to use. The house was generally very clean so it was disappointing to find that the loo had not been flushed!!

Great views over the river to the mountains. Comfortable bed. Good location for Southern Lakes.

We found the cottage a lovely place to stay and would highly recommend it. The location is quiet and rural but close to all the experiences of the Lake District. We found it very clean, well equipped and warm when we needed. We didn't have young children with us and the lack of outside areas could be an issue if you do, but the cul de sac is very quiet and there are areas to explore outside the doorstep. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and it is very good value for money.
