Communication with the owners was easy and plentiful with all essential details provided. The cottage itself is a lovely blend of Victorian charm and modern convenience. The properties sense of peace is enhanced by it's distance and elevation from the road. In views from the cottage, the road is hardly seen, just the wonderful countryside and the historic narrow gauge Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway passing on the other side of the valley. Six of us, and a parrot, stayed in the property and we had plenty of space for all, whether spending time together or separately. The kitchen and bathroom offered modern amenities, whilst all living areas were comfortable and cosy. Plenty of books and DVDs tempted us, but we spent much time out and and about, as there is so much to do in the close vicinity. We had two great meals at The Bower House Inn, an easy walk away, and another at Brook House Inn in Boot, from where the more adventurous of our group trekked up onto the fell to visit the stone circles (details of which were in one of the many guides and information booklets at the cottage). Finally, huge thanks to the owners, for organising the return of 2 items which we managed to leave behind at the end of our stay.
