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.

The cottage is very cosy, comfortable and very well furnished. Location is great, only a short drive to the Pennines or the Lake District. Thank you Rob and Kerry for a lovely stay!
