A beautiful, cosy little cottage with absolutely everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The wood burning fire is a bonus. The beds are super comfy too! Overall a lovely, relaxing break and we hope to visit again in the summer.

The property was located in a beautiful part of the Lake district with everything as described. The garden was enclosed, which the dogs absolutely loved. It was extremely comfortable, very well decorated & well maintained and had everything in it we needed. We will definitely be returning here again, hopefully for longer next time. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyome wanting a break in the lakes
