Cradled by the surrounding hills, this traditional Lakeland cottage enjoys an idyllic rural situation, tucked away in the quiet Duddon valley – reputedly Wordsworth’s favourite, within the Lake District National Park and close to the River Duddon – a pleasant spot for picnics and private salmon and trout fishing. This ‘little gem’ of a cottage provides a carefully furnished home from home, with a wood burner in an inglenook fireplace and beech wood units in the kitchen and with some stunning walks and scenic drives from the door; a footpath runs alongside the house leading to Stickle Pyke. Easy touring of this spectacular region takes in Muncaster Castle, the Ravenglass and Eskdale Steam Railway, Coniston Water and Hardknott Fort, to name but a few. Shop 1 mile, country pub 2 miles.

Great location, we were able to do a different kind of walk every day. We loved the seclusion and privacy, as well as the neighbouring pigs and sheep. Our dogs loved the garden, which was beautifully maintained and a nice spot to sit on sunny days. It was enclosed, secure and we felt safe to let them roam and wander. The conservatory gave a nice extra space to sit quietly and read too. We loved our stay there and so did our dogs!

The cottage is within a working farm grounds, not stated, there was no wood for the fire, windows were filthy, hairs on bathroom sink which also had a broken tap, the base of the shower screen had thick mouldy silicone both on inside and outside, there was a linen basket with dried blood stains, there was an electric heater with broken wheels and cut in cable next to plug,the patio doors had clothes pegs on bolts because they were loose, garden table was propped on stones because it was old and broken and dogs had to be kept on lead because of free roaming sheep. All in not a pleasant stay. If you want a pleasant break then don't stay here.
