Fantastic place for a getaway

5 of 5
Loved everything about this signal box. Great views from the upstairs lounge and cosy in the evening with the fire. The kitchen had everything, shame I didn't get to use it, as we ate out. The bedroom was great being on the ground floor, with ensuite shower room, all was exceptionally clean. Felt really at home here. There was plenty of room for parking 2 cars. Location wise, nice to be out in the country and to see wildlife around, and it's not far to visit the lakes. The bottle of wine was a lovely touch on our arrival, as was having all cleaning products and towels provided. Will love to revisit for a longer stay in the future. Thanks Gavin and Wendy for a great getaway.

Great value for money

Well located cottage when we broke our journey north. Plenty of room for the four of us (although not much headroom for those over 6 foot in the shower 😜). Owner very helpful and communicative, thank you.
