Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed in February we really loved the area and come back year after year. Really pleased we found such a gem of a house. Our 2 boys (aged 7 and 10 ) loved exploring the garden and they thought it was excellent having a bathroom and TV each! A fab house, great for a family holiday will be back next year . Thanks.

The online photos of this property underestimate the charm and luxury offered within. We arrived on a freezing December evening to be greeted by some mulled wine and baskets of logs by the woodburning stoves. The clean lines of the property, and the original exposed beams throughout, gave space yet warmth. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could want, in prestine condition. It felt like a home from home and whether a base for fell walking or a cosy cottage to stay in and relax it was ideally suited. Finishing touches such as the OS maps for the area and the complete pictorial guide to the lakeland fells in the dining room made clear that a great deal of effort had been taken to make our stay as easy as possible. We are hoping to return for future holidays such was the positive experience of this week in the lakes.
