Fantastic cottage, well equipped, clean and perfect location. Pity that we picked the wrong weekend weather wise but we will come back.

Great place to stay. All you need on the doorstep. Great nostalgic touch is a real milkman and milk in bottles. Close to the Lakes yet far enough away to be calm and peaceful.
