The home has everything that you need for a relaxing stay. We had 2 children and a dog (pre organised with the owner) all had their own areas where they could be themselves. The extra touches meant everything to us there was everything you could need and more. Would like to visit in summer so we could sit outside and admire the views. Thanks again!!

We were greeted by a lovely log burning stove, fresh roses on the table and tea, coffee biscuits and milk in the kitchen. The bed was super comfortable. A very good pub was just 50 yards away and the Howgil Hills were at the end of the road. A perfect location. Would recommend.

We particularly enjoyed the bath! Thanks Andy for being so helpful and letting us stay for our short break. Weather was fabulous and we did plenty of sight seeing. A lovely base to adventure out into the beautiful Lake District. Steph
