Cockleshell cottage was every bit what we expected, fantastic views, lovely walks around the area, the cottage was cosy, and everything was provided. It was ideally situated for touring the Western coastal places and for going into the lake towns. It was a shame that the weather was not too good, as we would have liked to sit outside the cottage to enjoy the scenery, but at this time of year we didn't expect much. I would say though, when we left the area, the temperature was 2 degrees, when we arrived home in the Midlands, it was -1 and snow everywhere, so I suppose we had it good in comparison. The only disapointment about the lake district, is it is a total rip-off. Everywhere that you can find a spot to pull in to look at a lake, there is a pay and display machine. The worst one was a visit to Aira Falls, which we were looking forward to, but it was £5 to park for 2 hours, so we just didn't bother. The other problem was the condition of the roads, there are so many pot holes. I am glad we visited when we did, as I suspect that there will be numerous road closures coming up soon and right in the middle of the main visitor season. I doubt that we will return to the Lakes, but if we do, it will be to Cockleshell cottage.I have to thank the owners and the caretaker for the warm welcome to their property.
