Lovely Accommodation - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying at the The Old Workshop. Upon entering the cottage it immediately felt homely. Thoughtful added touches were provided which made all of the difference. Milk, Orange Juice, Biscuits, Prosecco, Travel Cot, Highchair and a lovely card welcoming us on our Holiday. The cottage is also fully equipped with all you could possibly require on a holiday and more.

The property itself was easy to find and is in a quiet location with a great local pub (The Plough) a short distance away.

In a great location to fully explore the lakes and surrounding areas.

Overall would definitely recommend to others and would like to return myself at some point.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!!!

Fab cottage worth a visit

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautiful with loads of room. It's very well appointed and decorated to a high standard. The living space it's upstairs and very cosy but with a lovely outside area upstairs and lovely garden downstairs when the sun is shining. We will definitely visit again. This cottage is perfect for all seasons and the Plough down the road is worth a visit the food is gorgeous !!!
