When sitting on the decking (a real suntrap when the sun is out) the beck can be heard which is a lovely sound. The lodge is not overlooked & has excellent views of the surrounding fells & is well equipped & maintained. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return again.

The cottage exceeded our expectations even having a full Sky TV package, it was very clean, well furnished and extremely comfortable. We received excellent communication from the owners who made everything really easy for us. Highly recommended!

The cottage was a perfect base for a family weekend away, with the open plan kitchen dining area and decking area at the rear.
