Generally very positive really. Lovely bathrooms, comfortable beds & nice bed linen. Plenty of space for clothes. Good supply of hot water & heating. A tumble drier to deal with wet clothing would have been much appreciated Lovely garden. Much appreciated welcome pack & goodies: nice touch. Continued from above. We had to use logs to form barriers Read moreround drains to prevent the cottage from flooding. Dread to think of consequences if cottage was vacant! Hide

This cottage was larger than it seemed on the description. We were a party of 8 adults,2 babies and 4 dogs. It was full but better than expected. It is very well equipped and even provides thermos flasks. The garden was a lovely space to relax with plenty of garden chairs. A great holiday despite the rain

We were looking for a relaxing week away from the daily grind. Black fell cottage was perfect for peace & quiet & lovely countryside views.

Nothing fancy but perfectly good for a base to sleep and explore the lakes. Great location but maybe book a shopping delivery as supermarkets are quite far away. We had a great holiday and holiday cottages were very helpful when i called them.

We genuinely love staying here, its home from home and extremely spacious and comfortable for 8 of us. The property is incredibly clean and the garden is very large and well kept. As mentioned an extra fridge and a tumble drier would make the stay perfect. The location is ideal, the walk into Hawkshead is lovely. We have stayed here on and off for Read moreten years now and are hoping to continue to do this. Hide

Overall the property was okay but would benefit from some tlc as it feels tired and had several broken items. The bathroom could do with a thorough clean and repaint and the window curtain needs replacing. Its not the easiest to find, we didnt see the second farm name mentioned on the directions. The cottage is bigger than it looks from the photos Read moreand it was kind that they put a Christmas tree up for us and left some nice treats and crackers. Hide

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
