It has pamphlets of places of interest to visit, many for walking near and far. Everything has been thought out very carefully. The arrival gifts are a superb and welcome touch. Pauline and Michael are lovely and right there if you need them. We neglected to bring our walking boots, a must next time, although we managed to enjoy some excellent circular walks through the woods by the river and beck and across fields. Barnard Castle has so much to do and such interesting architecture too. Definitely a place to revisit in the future.

Thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay in joseph cottage, the cottage is is cosy and very welcoming, with lovely modern decor. TV was great at the end of the bed so could chill out after days out walking. Cottage is very central to Kendal. We had a great time visiting various places we would recommend going to Tamhows, sawery, hawkshead, grassmere and wrynose pass was beautiful for scenery. I also would say to visitors to to go to the Orange Tree at Kirby Lonsdale - Steak night on Wednesday was gorgeous. We would definitely come back and stay if in this area again. Good communications with owner made booking relatively simple. Highly recommended
