We loved the cottage. It was perfect for two and the location couldn't have been better. Being on the footpath to Tarn How's was great for a short walk on an evening to watch the sun set over the Tarn. Would definitely recommend the cottage and would love to go back in warmer weather to enjoy the balcony

Lovely off the beaten track cottage with good access to a wide variety of walks. Nearby villages have good facilities for shopping and eating out. Easy access to most of the southern Lakes.

Reviewed by P Sawyer 1st June 2016

Have stayed here many times. Traditional, comfortable and homely, a lovely place to return to after a day out walking. No main roads anywhere in sight, beautiful walks from the door, especially the 20 minute walk to Tarn Hows, or 35 minute walk into Hawkshead village. Stunning views from the lounge, (a balcony pending) Can't wait to return.
