This is a lovely cottage. Its small but nicely done and with everything you need. The location is good too- a bit away from the touristy areas (and way cheaper than them) but still within easy distance for visiting the best bits of the Lake District.

A lovely cottage with a quiet garden area- which unfortunately due to the weather we weren't able to make use of. However the dog enjoy numerous wander rounds thanks to the fully enclosed fencing. Location wise it was a quiet village but only 5 minutes from the main road to Windermere and coniston lakes.

We enjoyed staying at the cottage as it was a good base with which to visit the popular parts of the Lake District including Windermere, Coniston and Ambleside. You felt away from the busy areas and so it was nice to come back to at the end of a day out.

We thought the cottage was true to the pictures but unfortunately really underwhelming for our stay. For 425 for 2 nights with one dog, we expected some personal touches but there were none. One half used toilet roll, no coffee/tea, handwash in kitchen or bathroom, no functioning wifi/tv/phone service or any personal touches whatsoever

the cottage is sole with parking to the front. If all three cottages are let, there is not sufficient parking for three cars; even if parked considerately. Either parking must be designated for this particular cottage or it must not be sold with adequate parking: even for one car.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
