Excellent house with plenty space and great facilities. Upside down layout a bit quirky and kitchen not the biggest however we ate out or outside most nights. Garden lovely and kids played in it for hours on end. Plenty exploring options in the area, several lakes 15 minutes by car and multiple hill runs possible from house.

We had a wonderful extended family weekend staying in all 3 houses. The gardens are ideal for children and the new games room a welcome addition. The properties are very well equipped for large numbers and we even managed to seat 18 adults at the big table! We have been to the properties several times before and noted they had been updated and decoRead morerated recently. We have booked again for next year! Hide

Another fantastic Easter family get together at Low Millgill Head, Croft House and Rose Cottage. This is our 10th year of staying (would have been 12th if not for Covid interruptions!) It was great to be back and to see so many improvements made to the cottages, especially the new kitchens and carpets. The gardens this year were in stunning conditiRead moreon and with the lovely weather we really enjoyed and appreciated the new garden furniture. A great holiday thanks Hide

Really comfortable house, well equipped. We had a great stay there. Luckily in March we had a sunny weekend and found it hard to leave the garden. With the stream running through,space for kids and dogs to run around, it really was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.
