We loved our stay at The Bothy! It was actually our second visit, and the cottage has been redecorated and updated since our last stay. The hot tub is a lovely addition to an already superbly equipped cottage. The local area is just stunning, and we highly recommend a walk around Lake Buttermere and a hike up Catbells. The cottage owners are lovely and incredibly helpful.

We had a wonderful break at the Bothy. Our children loved the zip wire, seeing the animals and the hot tub. The accommodation is very spacious, spotlessly clean, and very well appointed. We were made to feel very welcome. A real gem of a find. We hope very much to return.
