The location is in a beautiful setting and you wake up to the lovely country noises of birds, cows and sheep. Loved hearing the horses trotting by! The signal box is so cool and quirky and a must to add to your stayed in places! The hosts are very friendly and make you feel welcome :-) This is a great base for anyone who wants to explore the lakes, experience the views and go on adventure walks. We will definitely be returning here as it was simply wonderful. Thank you again to the hosts :-)
