    Pros: Great location for exploring the Lake District. Cottage was quiet and mostly comfortable. Price was reasonable. Cons: Poor communication by owners before arrival - didn't answer calls/respond to texts. Mattress very uncomfortable. Shower very unpredictable. Heating does not appear adequate (thankfully the weather was mild while we were there). Superficially clean in areas you can see - behind the bed was filthy!

    This cottage is lovely . It is furnished to a very high standard. It was very clean and comfortable. It is quite small but perfect for two people . It is attached to the farmers house so if you want complete isolation , this is not for you. Having said that the family are very quiet and there is no intrusion . The only thing that could be improved ( minor point) is there could be a few more pots /pans / wok for cooking . The location is amazing with hills and amazing views on your doorstep . It is not in walking distance of windermire as it is only 30 mins walk but on a road with no foot path , so would be difficult to walk back after dark . I completely recommend this cottage and the owners are very helpful and friendly . I would come again .

    Ideal setting just outside bowness on windermere. Very peaceful. Enjoyable stay.

    Very pleasant stay in a nice farm location, very peaceful and quiet. Slight problem was having to drive to local amenities. Owners were very friendly and farm proved to be a nice location for many National Trust properties which was our main theme for our Easter break.

    We spent a week in this Cottage, it was very comfortable, clean and cosy during the evening with the real fire. The Hosts were very friendly, approachable and helpful throughout. We will have no hesitation of booking this Cottage again if we return to the Lake District.
