A great place to stay

5 of 5
We have walked down to the sea and up the Knott and had our grandchildren for a sleepover while staying in this superbly equipped property. The beds were comfy, the instructions and welcome pack were much appreciated and the owner very helpful in making our holiday so enjoyable. We recommend the Hare and Hounds at Levens for food and the bowling alley at Holgates for all age family entertainment.

Beautiful Cottage

5 of 5
Spent an amazing week in this beautiful cottage, quiet location but close enough to explore the Lake District in all its glory. Cottage is beautifully presented and has everything you need. Children loved going downstairs to bed and the underfloor heating in the bathroom. Would recommend.
