Fantastic peaceful hideaway in the country
The reality was as good as the photos - and it's a great base for looking at the local towns and countryside
Beautiful home from home.. everything you would need and more. Stunning scenery. Dogs loved it. Cosy and warm. We made good use of the log burner.
Amazing despite the rain
Fantastic is all that is needed. The property is wonderful and Stephen is more than welcoming. Inside, everything is clean and it has a lovely cozy feeling, which is strange since actually the property is quite spacious.
Surrounding the property is lovely green fields, so, if you get some bad weather then you can just relax. Also, for children, there is many animals around to look at and in the surrounding areas there are lots of activities for all types of weather.
Returning for a holiday to the UK, I was looking forward to a pint at the local pub, but the hours are quite irregular. This means that there is not much within walking distance for food or drink. However, there is a town around 5 miles away which will cater to most peoples' needs.
Overall, it was a lovely experience, especially for my children who were seeing farm animals for the first time.
Been going now for 15 Years. I think that says it all!!!!
Rabbie, Susie, Toby and Tarn our Cocker Spaniels.
.......and we look forward to the next 15 years! The perfect guests,always a pleasure, just where has the time gone? See you again later in the year and thanks so much for your kind review. Steve & Debbie
Beautiful contemporary cosy cottage
We chose Turnip House for my husband and I and our 2 year old daughter. The photos online don't do the cottage or the surrounding area justice.
The cottage is beautifully refurbished, modern but with all the cosy charm.
The area is wonderfully tranquil and far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to jump in the car and get to the local towns. Our daughter loved the chickens in the garden and sheep next door and the huge bath in the bedroom.
Steve was wonderful when we arrived and spent time with us to let us know what was close by and walks that would be suitable for us and our Daughter.
Thanks to Steve and Debbie for a wonderful holiday.
Thanks to you Emma for a wonderful review, we work hard to keep standards high and helping with local knowledge is essential. Even more lambs in the field now, the snow has gone from the fell tops, moving towards summer................ Thanks again for such nice comments, hopefully see you all again soon. Steve & Debbie
We stayed in Turnip Cottage, what a fantastic place. Full of wonderful walks and cycling. (just have to work a little harder on the hills).
Steve and Debbie where wonderful hosts and so knowledgable about the area, giving great advice for places to go and eat.
We WILL be back a fantastic holiday.
It was our pleasure and we'd love to see the three of you again! We try hard tyo keep standards high and help each visitor with regard to eating and tailor places to visit that matches their interests. However, most people just love to relax, walk locally and wander down to the pub for something to eat and a pint............... Thanks again for your kind words, see you again soon.
