    Lovely warm and cosy cottage. Best advice is to make sure you read all information and notes carefully to ensure you have water that is hot. A glitch meant no TV for my stay although both owner and staff at Cumbria Cottages tried their best to sort it. Take a torch if you are walking late it is Very dark, particularly for the last dog walk of the day. Lovely surrounding lanes and walks so highly recommend.

    A good basic holiday cottage with most of the things you need. The twin bedroom is small and next to the kitchen and the cleaning in corners and not seen areas could be improved. Four lamps not working but manually replaced with spares and kitchen need a door blind as you pad from the bedroom past the kitchen up to the loo . Main bedroom and loo good on the top floor. Absolutely no mobile signal unless on o2.

    Cottage met our expectations from the website description. Couple of small niggles, oven gloves would be useful and it shouldn’t be a challenge to make the shower drain work. It took us 5 minutes. We had a great week, the cottage was warm, dry and comfortable. The location was great and we could walk our dog easily from the front door.

    Had the best time at April cottage. The surrounding area is stunning as very easy do lots of walks from the doorstep. Especially fell foot national trust park was a surprise bonus! The cottage itself is beautiful and really tastefully decorated so everyone can feel at home. We found everything we needed was supplied and well as welcome extras such as plenty of blanets and books about the local area. The only thing that is worth noting for parents of young children is that the second bedroom is downstairs and there are a few steps as well as the main staircase in order to get to the bathroom and master bedroom. It was fine for us but perhaps would not be as suitable for families with young children who would struggle with the steps in the dark. Other than that everything was perfect and we can't wait to return!

    A very quaint cottage in an ideal location. Beds were very comfortable! No phone network for EE, which was a bit of a let down but that’s due to the area! WiFi was ok but again due to the area was not amazing! A quiet area and locals were welcoming!

    A lovely cottage in an excellent location. We have stayed at many cottages and have always received a welcome pack, and a few flowers which is gratefully received, even if only a pint of milk and a few tea bags. Unfortunately April Cottage offered nothing.
