However, this time it has new owners who have made some noticeable improvements. The cottage was clean and appeared to be well maintained and met our expectations once again. There is a wonderful view across to Saddleback that will entrall; it was magnificent when snow covered. The cottage Is remote but close to several villages some of which have hotels/inns that come well recomended for lunch and dinner. It's in easy reach of Keswick and Penrith for shopping, and exploring Dewent Water and Ullswater.
