Carr Crag Cottage Guest Reviews

We had high expectations for this cottage having seen the amazing photos on the website and we weren’t disappointed.  One week’s stay just wasn’t enough as you could never tire of the amazing views from this idyllic setting.  The cottage is extremely well equipped and beautifully furnished.  We didn’t have a mobile signal at the property – which was surprisingly liberating – but the wifi was excellent and a landline is available for use (with an honesty box).  Would love to go back again!

We really enjoyed our second time at Carr Cragg, we chose the cottage for location and comfort and it did not disappoint. We will be planning our next years trip real soon. Thanks

Wow! Spent a lovely weekend in this beautiful cottage celebrating a very memorable 60th birthday. Everything exceeded on expectations not least the unforseen 3-4 inches of snow. The views were breath taking especially when we woke up on Sunday morning. We threw snow balls, made snowmen and snow angles in the garden. Looked more like a 6th birthday celebration! We would love to return!

This was our third cottage with The Lakeland Cottage Company and yet again we were impressed with the quality and cleanliness. What an amaizng cottage in a great location with the best views ever. We had the weather on our side and spent many nights sat out with a glass of wine watching the sun set behind the Langdale Pikes - what can be better than that?! Some great walks near Elterwater, Chesters busy unless you get in early or late, great little tea shop. Swimming in Moss Eccles Tarn... First for the boys!
Fantastic, we hope to be back very soon.

A wonderful family holiday and great time was had by all. The cottage is truly lovely. The views are to die for, the wildlife is fascinating and the walks are amazing. The only thing..the weather was very wet. But we made good use of the drying room and the wood fire which made it all very homely. Would definitly return. Thank you.

We have been coming to the lakes for many years and stayed in many cottages, Carr Crag is right up there with the very best! The views are stunning, the garden is a wildlife haven and with plenty of fabulous walks right from the door step, what more could you ask for. Weather was mixed (very typical of the lakes) but we went out every day and Monty was well worn out - being only young he was in his element. We were mucky enough to have seen the deer twice (two of them both times) also many rabbits and bird life. A truly wonderful place where we didn't want to leave. Look forward to returning soon!

What a fantastic house! Could not wish for a better place to stay and with a amazing views from the house after a long days walking. First house, away from home, that Pip has settled in and we've all had a great nights sleep after enjoying the lakes. First time we have stayed in this property and we will definitely be returning soon. A gem of a house - thank you. Wish we could stay longer - there's always next time!
