Everything is high quality clean warm and asthetically pleasing . The beds are comfy the kitchen a joy to cook in the open plan lounge is realy nice to relax in after a day of long walks and spectacular views . Absolutely loved it .also great bookshelf of Lake District guidebooks, maps and literature . Great tv. And sound system that has jack so you can play own music through phone or tablet . The parking is tight, just because it's difficult to turn in with a big car . But we did manage it for packing and there is Some free on street parking....just a short walk away at this time of year.

The conversion is amazing and the studio remains quirky and full of character. Everything you need for a little home from home with thoughtful touches such as a free bottle of wine - thank you. The owners are extremely attentive and responsive and we will definitely be returning. Lovely walks along the beach or through the countryside with shops, pubs and leisure facilities nearby should you need them.
