The cottage was as we remembered from our previous visit, and the new owners were friendly & helpful without being intrusive. We loved the peace & quiet of Kirkland - an ideal place to relax & enjoy the beautiful Cumbrian countryside.

Beautiful cottage and right at the foot of the fells. Perfect place to be on holiday, whether walking from the door or relaxing indoors or in the lovely garden, spotting hares and many birds.
