The view you wake up to is stunning the owners are very welcoming and friendly. Sort problems right away (light bulb went in the bathroom). With a child who has OCD she was very overwhelmed at how clean it was and wants to go again. We had a lovely time playing with the board games supplied even though we had a few sore losers 😂. Amazing area and will be returning!

The cottage is handy for the pubs, cafes and shops of Reeth and has wonderful views from the three windows in the living area and from the bedrooms. The beds are comfy and the cottage is clean and bright. The Welcome basket is a real treat and we also enjoyed the open fire. We were particularly touched by Jo's thoughtfulness, when realising that the change from twin beds to a double would affect our stay, allowed two of us to stay in another nearby cottage which was also delightful.

Easy access to the property, key safe so we could arrive and settle in. Easy parking in a garage. Property is exactly what it looks like online- a snug, cosy, comfortable place to stay. Well equipped in the kitchen as well as plenty of DVDs to watch (a good mix of films). Nice bathroom, kitchen and living facilities. Very impressed all round. Would definitely recommend it to a friend and we would love to come again
