The description advertised is exactly what we got. The cottage has the stunning open fire to relax by, yet has all the mod cons you would need. The big wooden beams in the bedroom were great to look at whilst stretching out in the comfy king sized bed. There are plenty of castles, ruins and places of interest to visit nearby. We were lucky to visit Appleby when the "Tornado" steam train was hitting the news. As we were at the cottage in bad weather, we did not utilise the pretty little garden. However, it was nice to look upon. We will definitely return

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
