Beautiful,cosy well equipped little hide away.

5 of 5
What a fabulous little hide away!! We stayed at Orchard Nook for a long weekend and it was absolutely perfect. The place is small but very well thought out, spotlessly clean and comfortable. We wanted peace and quiet which we got but kendal was only minutes away and had everything. We can't wait to return, thanks Howard and Jenifer for a fabulous stay.

Wonderful, relaxing, stylish cottage

5 of 5
Had a wonderful long weekend at Lowside Barn. Claire and Chris were friendly, welcoming and unobtrusive. The cottage is beautiful, a converted barn which has real warmth and a very homely feel, whilst being stylishly decorated. It's well equipped, super clean and in a beautiful location - the views of the surrounding area are stunning. Highly suitable for anyone who loves walking then returning to a home from home. We didn't want to leave.
