This cottage was very homely and I mean this in the best way. The couple next door Anne and Colin were lovely. The orchard was wonderful for the dogs.

Lovely, well stocked, comfortable cottage. Husband especially liked the open fire!

Very quiet and beautiful cottage and location. Perfect to get away from reality for a while. Short but hilly walk to the nearest pub. We as family of two young children thought it was an ideal place for them to play. They spent alot of time by the shallow brook. Making the most of the fresh air! We would definatly go back.

Had an excellent week, cool for the Lakes but no fault of the cottage! Did think a wood burner, from my own experience, would be more economical and give off more heat. Good walled orchard for letting dog out.
