Really cozy cottage in great location
Lovely warm, cozy cottage in a location that was near all the parts of the Lakes we wanted to visit. The lounge is warm and spacious but the sofas are a bit hard and not that comfortable. Kitchen was great - well designed, with space for a table and chairs. Upstairs was well laid out, great shower and lots of cupboard space. Main issue was the double bed, which was very uncomfortable - so much so that my wife slept in the kids room with them. Apart from that, was a great place to stay and we really enjoyed our stay.
