    Difficult to find the cottage. Quite small and dark. Shower defective. Oven only worked on the grill setting. Quite cold until the main heating was put on. However the cottage was very clean.

    A lovely character cottage, very dark inside. The kitchen is tiny, hardly any work surface so just about ok for self catering. We felt it was very basic for the price charged, not even a pint of milk in the fridge on arrival. The setting is wonderful and owners friendly.

    Cottage is in a wonderful quiet spot. It is a little basic (and no washing machine!) but if you can live without 5* luxury you’ll be able to enjoy the rural spot and facilities in nearby Coniston.

    Fantastic tranquil and idyllic location within easy reach of the central lakes region. The hosts are very friendly and even though they are right next door we had complete privacy.

    Wonderful, peaceful, a really restful. Towel rack in kitchen and clothes hooks on the bedroom doors would be helpful
