We had the most wonderful time, the cottage was lovely and very relaxing. Everything we could have wanted and more. There are plenty of things to do around the area. Can't wait to come back in December.

Very Spacious, Clean and Comfortable Cottage within a very short distance to Hawkshead and Ambleside. We were truly blessed with the weather and couldn't of wished for anything more from a holiday in The Lakes. Food in the nearby Outgate Inn is fab and also check out the Kings Arms in Hawkshead. For those who like a hearty breakfast before hitting the hills I would recommend purchasing some first class bacon and free range eggs from the local dairy farmer who visits the property each day. Just leave a note on the doorstep and they will leave the goodies in a box and settle the bill with you at the end of the week. The cheese is delicious too and all reasonably priced. There are walks on your doorstep and just a short car journey will open up further adventures. Couldnt recommend enough.
