Keeps all it promises

5 of 5
Despite mixed weather which prevented us from enjoying the beautiful garden in the evening we have spent a delightful week and can fully confirm that the cottage keeps everything the photos promise and we felt well-looked after by out warm-hearted hosts. They have done a great job especially regarding the tasteful and cosy interior, which is really exceptional. Come and see for yourself, we will certainly be back some time.

Idyllic, quiet, peace on earth! Was more than expected.

Staying at Dawbank was a pleasure. Graham & Sue were great hosts and did not intrude our time at their cottage. The cottage has everything you need, and is literally situated in the middle of nowhere. It's perfect for getting away from the city and finding somewhere to base yourselves for day outs in and around the lakes. I'll definitely be back again!! Thanks Sue & Graham (and Micky the dog). The kids loved staying there and didn't want to leave.
