We especially liked the welcome basket supplied especially the dog treats as this give the property that extra special touch. We had a small problem on arrival, property not cleaned, but this was due to unforeseen circumstances, but Claire was quick to notify us, communication was excellent and we also received a refund of half first nights stay.we will definitely look in to staying here again in the future.

Everything you need is there and very well looked after. Loved the log fire.The surrounding land is lovely and the whole experience was very relaxing. It's an ideal place from which to explore the Lake District and surrounding areas.

We arrived on a cold, bleak, rainy night. We had planned to go to a local pub for our evening meal!!!! It didn't happen!!! We were so warm and cosy in front of the lovely log fire that we stayed put ( home-made pasta dish--in the microwave instead of venturing out!!!) The day after, we enjoyed a lovely walk in the sunshine, taking in the most marvellous views-- setting off from the cottage. The following days-- we were on Granny Duty as our daughter lives close by. Each evening we returned to this well-equipped, delightful cottage-- our 'bolt-hole' after very busy days!!! The views from the back of the cottage are just stunning--looking towards Ingleton. We watched the hens, geese, black swans and horses in the fields before us--- and watched the wild birds on the feeders just outside the patio doors, as we enjoyed a relaxing breakfast. This wee cottage is a haven of peace and quiet for anyone who needs a few days to chill out. We hope to return very soon.
