Really lovely little cottage and perfect as a base to explore the area. The hosts left us some treats that made us feel very welcome. It was really clean and perfectly equipped. To note for dog owners the courtyard is enclosed but not secure.

Very lovely, cosy cottage and had equipment available that was a surprise, because other places we've stayed never had this, such as dog bowls and towels, as well as treats, plus little things such as washing up liquid and cloths and tea towels, which is nice because if we had forgotten our own, then these would have been there for us which was greRead moreat.

A beautiful cottage. Immaculate condition with a real home from home feeling. Very cosy and I loved sitting next to the log burner watching TV. Had everything we needed. Would highly recommend for a quiet break away from all the rush. We visited Cockermouth which is small and quaint with lovely shops. We also went to Whitehaven and explored the RumRead more Story which was very interesting. The local pub The Mason's Arms in the village was very friendly and served some lovely food. Thank you.

We found the cottage to be very nice and comfortable. For us, the location was a bit remote for a winter break due to short days / dark at 4 pm, especially when the weather is inclement.

This was a great place to stay, the cottage had all the essentials we needed. Our visits to the local Masons arms pub were enjoyable with everyone being very friendly. We lit the fire in the living room on our last night, as it was a little cold outside and wanted to enjoy the experience. Will definitely visit again.

A charming little terraced cottage in a quiet, beautiful village surrounded by open countryside.. The house is perfect for 2 people and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. A car is essential with on road parking widely available. There is no private outside space (there is an outside rear yard shared with neighbouring properties) so if Read moreyou are looking for a place to open the door and let your dog wander around this is not the place, but its a minor inconvenience.
