    A beautifully decorated holiday lodge. We stayed for a weekend and were 6 adults and 2 children and never felt cramped in. Really comfortable beds and lounge furniture. Best equipped kitchen I have ever seen in a holiday lodge. Alison and Richard are very friendly and came across to greet us. Richard even showed the children the Bulls and cows. Hot tub was great and views across countryside great whilst sat in it. Location is a little remote so you need to take all you food with you as there are no shops within walking distance. Penrith is only a 15 drive away though with supermarkets. The nearest pub "The Globe" is 2.3 miles away if walking there along the roads. But food was excellent. We would definitely stay again.

    We had an incredible time, the hottub was cleaned every day, and the house was spotless when we arrived. The cottage is much nicer than on photos. Would definitely visit again.

    The Wheat Shed looked so much more impressive in real life than on the photos. Fantastic homely living space with all the equipment I could ask for - they really did think of everything that we could need. Amazing attention to detail! It was also lovely to be greeted by the two owners on arrival, with little complimentary treats for us all. Would definitely recommend this cottage for a break away, to just switch off and spend time with family and friends - and enjoy the hot tub!!
