Myself and 13 old school friends stayed for a long weekend at the beginning of December. We were given clear directions and it was very easy to find even in the pitch black. We were welcomed with little gift baskets in each barn, a thoughtful touch. Harriet popped in to see us on the first night and make sure we had everything. Both barns are decorated beautifully with a real rustic/country feel. The big fires kept us snug all weekend. The views surrounding the barns are outstanding and there were lots of walks going in all directions. The facilities were brilliant and enabled us to cook big meals for 14 and all eat in the same barn- not an easy feat. As a group we have been to a couple of holiday lets and this is by far the best- we are already in deep discussion about going back this summer! Thank you to Harriet for being such a great host!

Completely new to the area we were warmly welcomed by Neil and Sue and the Tardis was a home from home and beautifully furbished, with everything we needed. We really enjoyed the multi fuel stove which was such a treat, especially given it was -6degrees at one point, which we settled in front of over a cuppa and enjoyed our welcome biscuits! Thank you. If we were not now living here we would stay again and we would definitely recommend and will be passing on the details to family and friends!

Gill, the owner, gave some good tips of what we could get up to. Was easy to find and not far from the motorway link. Local shop well stocked and lovely pub which we visited most nights - George Inn. Good links to Penrith and Kendall with Windermere being a highlight of the trip. Kendall Chocolate factory was a bonus outside to the cottage. Quiet and conveniently located and had everything you needed for a break away. Cosy and ideal for some time away from the city. Not been to the Lake District before but was a fab first visit, hopefully not the last.
