                                                                                                      This certainly is a well-named cottage: cute as a button on the outside but cleverly spacious on the inside! The cottage has all the comforts you'll need, without sacrificing some of the lovely original details (do ask Neil about them). The living room/kitchen has a comfy chair and sofa to lounge in in front of the wood stove (which we didn't fire up because the weather was fine) and everything you'll need to prepare a bite to eat. The upstairs has a cosy bedroom in which you'll inevitably oversleep and a tidy bathroom which share some lovely wood paneling. The convenience of a washing machine in the annex (across the quaint patio) is excellent. Neil and Sue were lovely, making us feel very welcome and full of ideas for locations and activities nearby. They did a great job of being around without being intrusive (including some very stealthy plant-watering!). There are lovely walks from Sedbergh, from light to steeper climbs. It's also a great base to make day-trips from, to the Lake District for example. Our one gripe with Sedbergh might be that some of the people in and around the local pub could be a bit snobbish. Fortunately, there's another of those, we had a fine meal at the recently opened Italian and a stellar Fish and Chips. All in all, a highly recommended stay!

The propertbwas exactly what we were looking for; full of character, quiet and homely. Spotlessly clean and well presented, we felt right at home. Thanks for looking after us!
