Really could do with a good clean, freshen up and modernise a bit. I know its an old cottage but inside needs work, also WiFi and the bath tap need fixing. Unfortunately the shared garden, whilst as Beautiful as it was, would of been a disaster had other dog owners shared it as there is no separation at all and nothing to stop dogs or ppl coming riRead moreght up to your own private patio which isnt great for families with small children or reactive dogs as it has potential for a serious incident Hide

This is a remote, peaceful cottage with a great feeling of history. Close to Cross Fell and a short drive into the Lake District. Recommended for those who want to escape the hurly burly.

The location of the cottage was lovely with lots of walks right from your doorstep. Its amazingly quiet with only the sounds of birds and sheep to company. The cottage was very pretty and reasonably well equipped with what we needed. We had a very pleasent stay overall. Not sure if its 4 star though.

We had a blissful week at Shearer's Cottage. The location is totally secluded, so the only sounds were rustling trees and sheep! Yet, everywhere was still in easy reach within a short drive. We especially loved the gardens; the side garden was a great size and totally secure for our dog, and the main garden was amazing for our children to explore.

Location was outstanding. Cottage outstanding. Weather behaved. A great week had by all. Views from garden accross Eden Valley were superb. Only downside was Langwathby road closure to Penrith. Hopefully open for next visitors. Would recommend this property to anyone who really wants peace and quiet
