CHARACTER COTTAGE

  • 4 of 5
A large cottage full of character and charm.
Very peaceful location - just the sound of birds and sheep around us - with truly fantastic views from the upstairs windows. Watch out for the highland cattle on the road.
Cottage has all the facilities advertised, is clean and well maintained - lots of care and attention to detail in the colour-themed bedrooms. Very much appreciated the welcome pack of wine, beer, milk etc and the ready supply of wood provided - enjoyed roaring log fires every night.
The layout is a little odd or quirky as others have noted, being on three floors, so this would not suit people with limited mobility or any difficulty in climbing steep stairs (+ concrete steps to front door + slate steps to patio ...hand rails would help here)
As it is advertised as sleeping 12 people I would say this could be a bit of squash - it is more cosy than spacious. For 12 people you would probably want an extra bathroom - we were a party of 11 adults and we struggled a little to cope with only 2 bathrooms and one basic shower room (which is off the kitchen!)
There is only parking in front of the cottage for 4 cars and as our party had 6 cars between us (having travelled here from all corners of the UK and from abroad) this was somewhat irksome; we squeezed in one extra car in front of the cottage and parked one car a couple of miles away on the main road.
There is a public footpath (the Cumbrian Way) which goes through the garden right next the conservatory/dining room. As it was early in the year (and the weather rather wet and damp) this was not an issue but in the summer I guess it could affect your privacy, as the path is basically a yard from the large conservatory windows..
Really enjoyed the peace, tranquillity, great views, the ability to walk out of the door straight on to the fells. Climbed up the Old Man of Coniston on one occasion (luckily the rain held off that day) - breath-taking views from the summit.
Enjoyed visits to Coniston Water, Lake Windermere, Hawkshead, Skelwith Bridge, Langdale Valley and Sizergh Castle - even on wet days there's plenty to do and when the mist lifts - wow!
All in all a great place to stay.

A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY HOME FOR A CROWD

  • 4 of 5
A great holiday home in a wonderful location. There were 11 of us, (including four couples) and bedrooms to suit us all. We loved being able to eat outside - we had fabulous weather - and on the one rainy day we had we enjoyed the house with it's flexibility of space which meant we could all meet together, or be alone, as each wanted.

We loved the peace and solitude of the place, yet we were so close to the Lakes and coast. It was lovely to be able to walk from the house across beautiful scenic hills, the sheep and highland cattle being the most traffic we came across! We had a wonderful morning at Silecroft beach, and a fantastic couple of afternoons swimming in Lake Coniston.

Fiona was most helpful, providing comprehensive instructions on how to get there, and a very generous and welcome "welcome pack". A holiday home we'd recommend for sure.

GREAT HOUSE FOR A GET-TOGETHER

  • 4 of 5
I booked the house for myself and 9 friends as a base for a 50th get-together and walking w/e in the lakes. The location is fantastic - isolated with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside, near enough to major attractions. The house is well equipped, clean and comfortable, even if a bit quirky in its layout, and fitted us all in with no problem. The open fire and plentiful supply of wood was also a great asset.

The owner was very helpful providing comprehensive instructions on how to get there and notes on the property. She was also quick to respond to emails.

All in all a great experience and happy to recommend to any potential clients.

A COTTAGE WHERE TRANQUILITY AND COMFORT MEET.

  • 5 of 5
A most fabulous holiday accommodation, each room tastefully furnished including the finishing touches like soaps etc. Location is ideal as it is close to the coast-20 minutes drive through scenic roads to the nearest fine beach-, 3-4 miles to Lake Coniston, beautiful walks through the fells close by where you can see stunning views of the lake, as well as a short drive to the Old Man range of mountains. The eating area in the bright atmosphere of the conservatory accommodated all of us amply, as did the comfortable lounge with its large screen with Sky TV. The best bit is how the owners simply did everything they could to make us feel at home away from home. Thank you Fiona and Steven.
Highly recommended if you are looking for a holiday away from everything yet within easy reach of coast, mountains and lakes.

Owner's Response: David and family thank you for such a positive review, it was a pleasure to have you and your family as guests and it was a bit of a learning curve for us if we have a Jewish family stay again we will be much better prepared to offer all the support we can to make their holiday perfect - thank you for being our teachers.
Hope to see you again
