What a perfect holiday!!

5 of 5
I'm not sure where to start. We had an absolutely wonderful holiday! This cottage had everything. The location is PERFECT!! Anything and everything was accessible ... Booth's, M&S, pubs, shopping, bus stop, taxi service, etc. . As to the accommodations, one couldn't ask for more. There is so much space!! If you add the views and the beautiful garden, you've reached the peak of any expectations. Mr. Spurling answered all questions quickly and professionally, though we didn't have many as everything was organized prior to our arrival. We had everything we needed and much more. This was not our first time in Kendal, but was a first at this cottage ... but hopefully, won't be the last. Thank you ever so much for making your cottage available. We made so many wonderful memories and we have you to thank, in large measure, for sharing your hospitality with us. Cheers and hope to return soon!

Stunning Week in the Lakes

5 of 5
On arrival the lodge was extremely clean and welcoming. The bottle of wine was a lovely touch. The views were fabulous and spent every evening on the veranda watching the lake and listening to the birds - sheer bliss and wonderful for mindfullness. Would certainly recommend this to friends and family. Beautiful surroundings and quiet area of the lake with Keswick just a 10 minute drive away.
