Beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of the UK

5 of 5
Thank you Andrea for greeting us at the Cottage. We had a wonderful time in Cumbria. The Cottage was in fine condition, wonderfully furnished and comfortable for our stay. The surrounding area is beautiful. It was a real treat! The only suggestion would be to locate a remote control for the DVD player.
