The surrounding area is beautiful. Very short drive to ullswater lake. Local pubs great for grub. Highly recommend this property to anyone & we would probably look to return one day.

We were pleasantly surprised by the interior of the house with baths and shower located in bedrooms. We would definitely go back and stay there and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for peaceful and comfortable stay. Thank you very much for letting us stay in your lively house!
