Perfectly bucolic and charming
Classically beautiful rural England on the outside, modern, cozy and well appointed on the inside. Stephen is a font of local knowledge and Finn the border collie is a wonderful host! Stephen went out of his way to make us comfortable and it is in a quiet very rural area, but centrally located for access to the Lakes Region, Yorkshire Dales and all that Cumbria has to offer. Just make sure to get driving directions from Stephen, as there is spotty cell coverage there and even the car GPS brought us to the middle of a cow pasture. Once you’re there, the wifi is excellent (which was ever so important to the surly teenagers we had with us). The place is even nicer than the pictures!
What a Find
Had a wonderful time,. Beautiful, relaxing, peaceful! Great location. Thank you!
Orchard View Cottage

Steve could not have been more helpful with his recommendations, superb efficiency and charming manner.
A real gem of a place!
Charming location and hospitable stay
Well equipped to a good standard. All rooms and spaces are well proportioned. Plenty of outside space to sit and relax, or dine. Great internet access. Fabulous views. Steve and Debbie were charming and welcoming hosts. We all had an enjoyable stay and would happily go back.
