Top Bank Guest Reviews

We had a lovely cosy time at the cottage. It is compact but perfect for what we needed. The owners were delightful and friendly. Crosthwaite was beautiful. The local walks information in the cottage was very helpful for us to plan an enjoyable week. The confirmation and directions from yourselves were very efficient and the owner greeted us as we arrived...all in all very easy! Thank you for the VIP codes and we look forward to booking a stay with you again in the future.

Thanks so much for a wonderful week in your perfect cottage.

We had an excellent week at Top Bank. The cottage itself was very clean, cosy, and comfortable, with everything we needed.   Its setting in Crosthwaite (with the Punchbowl being in walking distance) was exactly right for our purposes and Mr and Mrs Dawson were helpful and charming hosts. We have no complaints whatsoever and we would recommend this accommodation without hesitation. Many thanks.

My husband and I had the most amazing time at Top Bank. The cottage was clean and to high standard. Even though we went in July  we had to have the log burner on it was glorious. The bed was the biggest and most comfiest  bed we have ever slept in and the peace and quiet in a morning was amazing. We had access to the gardens and a small cast iron bbq which was just the job. We had bought our meat from Booths supermarket in Windermere and my gosh it was all lovely!! Highlight of the holiday had to be the excellent pub just 220yards along the road The Punch Bowl. The food was absolutely superb could not fault it or the service. The staff were so knowledgeable about the food and drink and made you feel so welcome on every visit. [we visited quite a few times JThanks to all who made our holiday such an enjoyable one.

Our weekend could not have been more perfect, thank you. Beautiful cottage and countryside.  

Perfect week, lovely cottage and stunning location. We do not wish to leave. Will be returning.Thank you.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. So welcoming-dogs have enjoyed lying beside the log burner. Hope to return.

Wonderful few days away, such a cosy base when the weather wasn't so good, such a great location, hope to visit again.

Superb week in this lovely little cottage. Blessed with fantastic weather, awesome food at the Punch Bowl. Too many places to seen in stunning scenery.

Great short family break in the Lakes. Perfect little cottage. Ideal for us and little 7 month old Ollie. Loved the privacy and peace and quiet. Thank you.

Perfect little cottage set in quiet countryside. We enjoyed cycling the lanes, exploring the villages and ending up back at the Punch Bowl.

A comfortable cottage to stay in. We enjoyed being in a quieter part of the Lake District but within easy access of some lovely pubs and places to walk.

A super pet friendly cottage. Lovely views of the church and valley. Robin & Marni are the most charming hosts - will be back.
So enjoyed our return visit to your well appointed cosy cottage. Fantastic area, will certainly be back.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. Lovely cottage, very dog friendly, Dexter loved the garden.

Really lovely cottage. Splendid location, so much to do.

We really enjoyed our stay. What a perfect warm cosy home to come back to after a day of soggy hill walking. Lovely location, great pub, will come back. Thank you.
