We can't thank the owners enough for a wonderful stay. The cottage was full of really thoughtful details. The hosts were warm and welcoming from the start. We couldn't believe how clean and comfortable the cottage was and are all looking forward to returning soon!

We had a home from home stay. Very welcoming home with a thoughtfully prepared cottage. It is in a great location to visit all over the Lake District. We were able to go, horseriding, hiking, visiting landmarks, and boating on the lake. The hosts are great, on hand if needed. Thanks for a great stay.

This holiday home is of an excellent standard. The rooms are spacious (spacious enough for a travel cot as well as having room to move around.) The living space is beautiful with a focus on being comfortable. The kitchen although small is very well equipped and the owners based next door who are very friendly and available to help as needed! We wouRead moreld definitly recommend and would stay again. Location wise the house is only 10 minutes drive from Lowther castle. Hide

Lovely little place for a last minute getaway with my partner and a couple of our friends - makes for a great base for walking (short drives to everywhere), and being close to Penrith made it possible for people coming from London. Space for board games, cosy wood stove and enough kitchen to cook properly (but bring your own knives, as usual!)
