We found the location to be ideally placed for us to access the activities we had planned by car, ie Scafell Pike, Grizdale Forest, Penrith, Ullswater, Bowness, Ambleside and Windemere. We found the facilities provided by the cottage to suit our needs. Our break benefitted from outstanding weather and the views from the garden were devine and added to the peaceful atmosphere in this stunning location.

It was in a great location close to public transport, ie train and hop-on-hop-off bus around the city. It is a very well equipped and comfortable apartment and the owner, Peter, couldn't have been more helpful. Thank you, Peter for a most enjoyable week.
