Cottage was in a lovely peaceful location with a large garden which was secure for our large breed dog. Wonderful views from living room and garden. Bathrooms very good and beds comfortable. A little updating/extra housekeeping would benefit some areas but overall we enjoyed our stay and the dog loved the outside space.

Cottage is decent - biscuits, chocolate, tea & coffee on the side as welcome gift. A bit tatty - strong odour from the open fire smell can be described as a strong unpleasant smoked bacon odour even though we didn't use it as it was missing a coal guard. Garden is NOT dog friendly if your dog has to be on a lead. Garden turns into a mud pit during Read morethe rainy days. Drive way is very narrow and steep. Lots of bedrooms and toilets which is great. Heating throughout which kept us very warm. Hide

Black Fell is a lovely, clean and comfortable cottage in a great location. It had ample room for our large party of 6 and a dog. The views from the lounge were stunning no matter what the weather and the garden is fully enclosed. It makes a great base to explore the local lakes of Windermere, Coniston and Tarn Hows and Hawkshead is minutes from theRead more cottage (great fish & chip shop!). Hide

This cottage has decent sized bedrooms, modern bathrooms and wonderful views. The garden has a little stream at the bottom and is perfect for a dog. Very quiet location. The location is perfect for Coniston and Hawkshead with plenty of walks to do. Wed definitely return.

The location of the house is perfect and the views out the livingroom windows were amazing. Bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen were brilliant - however the livingroom really let's the house down. It's tired with scrapes and holes in the plaster. Would stay again due to location - a little face lift to the livingroom would be the icing on the cake
