20/04/2017 Tulip cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage [ one of three ] in beautiful gardens with babbling brook.

Nicely furnished, and all mod-cons , while retaining an "old world charm".

Well located affording short journeys for all the Lake District has to offer.

Would like to visit again.

Beautiful site, immaculately clean cottage and friendly owners on hand to deal with any queries.

  • 5 of 5

I'd definitely recommend this holiday let. The cottages are in the middle of a beautiful site with a stream running along the bottom of a well kept garden. We saw a woodpecker amongst many other types of birds visiting the bird table. The cottages are well kept with decent furniture and fittings. It's a real home from home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is very comfortable, clean, warm, with a well-equipped kitchen. The garden with a river and a waterfall around the cottage is beautiful, and even despite the main road being just at the top of the drive, you could hear birds sing! Roslyn was very welcoming and happy to answer any questions. Overall, a lovely place to stay! Thank you very much!

A lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We were given a very warm welcome, including vases of daffodils because I had mentioned them when we booked Tulip cottage. That kind touch set the scene for our stay.

The cottages are set close to the hosts' home, but they walked the line between friendliness and being too 'present' very well. I cannot emphasis enough what super hosts Roslyn and John were.

The grounds in which the three cottages are set are lovely. The well established garden, even in March, had plenty of colour and there is a woodland area to explore. Be aware, as mentioned in the cottage details, that there is an easily accessible river, so young children would need supervision. For us, though, it added to the charm.

Tulip Cottage itself is designed for two people. The bed was very comfortable, rooms were decorated and maintained to a high standard and furnishings and equipment could not be faulted.

There is a detailed information file which we found useful and the visitors' book showed numerous examples of people who returned more than once. We also hope to be able to return soon. What a find!
