    We stayed here for a long weekend (a group of 4 adults although the house was big enough for 4 more) and had the best time. It’s the perfect base for a country escape, with fab countryside and walks on the doorstep. The house was perfect for what we needed, a big dining table that you could spend hours chatting round, a log fire (because even in August it’s irresistible!) and the comfiest beds. A brilliant bolt hole away from everything - we’ll be back!

    Took ages to find the cottage and we didn’t find the directions we were given very useful, as, the cottage is very secluded! I called the number given and spoke to a lady who gave some quick directions I advised that I may need to call again if we still didn’t find it to be told the office was closing so I couldn’t ring again as no one would be there?? after driving around in a circle we ended up asking someone who was leaving their house if they knew the way!! Luckily they did!! On arrival at the cottage there was a smell of damp in the hallway and bathroom which wasn’t a good start! The shower in the downstairs bathroom off the hall had had the plug turned upside down on our arrival! It was covered in mould and hair, which was absolutely disgusting! The whole place was dirty and has clearly been Neglected. we had to clean the floors and couches before we even unloaded any of our belongings! We also had to hoover the full place as the carpets were full of fluff and it was very clear nothing but beds had been cleaned for our arrival! There were cobwebs all over the place in the bedrooms on lamps and in corners etc We found juice bottles and empty crisp packets left by the previous occupants in the conservatory, with again many cobwebs and dust on everything! We had only brought a few of our own cleaning products and had to go to the supermarket in Penrith to buy more to fully clean the place the next day! There was dog dirt in the garden which one of the children stood in when they went outside! However, that was the first and only time they went in it as it wasn’t suitable for the children to play in due to it being very overgrown and badly neglected! Which is a real shame as it could be a lovely garden with some care and attention but it is clear the owners have not spent any time maintaining it in a long while!! Uneven paths and weeds everywhere!! Quite disappointing really as the garden was the only place the children could have played since the cottage is on a main road and there is nothing else around!! Flies are a big problem here and we had to buy fly spray! We were left no logs for the fire and had to call the emergency number when the bathroom roof was leaking due to the amount of rain!! It is clear that this had been leaking for some time and water was running down the wall and dripping into the toilet!! Meaning we were unable to use this bathroom!! The Man that came out got us logs from the shed and checked the window in the bathroom he advised that it was reported last year to be fixed but obviously the owners have not followed this up! We found the seating area in the main living room to be to be quite uncomfortable and dirty!! It’s almost like they’ve taken couches from a skip and put them in the cottage!! Considering there was 8 people it wasn’t enough for everyone to have a comfortable seat in the evening!! After days out exploring the area you need something you can relax on! Also the tv is too small for the room and the remote control did not work which was a bit annoying!! The blind in the main living area was covered in dead flies! Think it could be a lovely cottage if it was maintained to a better standard as even some of the bathroom doors didn’t lock. I think it’s quite cheeky of the owners to have all of the rules and regulations in their book about making sure you leave the place clean when they cant even be bothered to clean it properly for guests arriving!! I dare say it was in a cleaner state when we left than it was when we arrived! I definitely wouldn’t book this cottage again due to the lack of cleanliness and maintenance! It was the first time we had tried a cottage as normally we book a lodge which are always spotless. I think after this experience we won’t be booking any more cottages and we will stick to the comfort of the lodges!

    We did enjoy our holiday at this very spacious cottage, it is ideal for a large family or a couple of family’s. we loved the fact we were in the middle of nowhere, it was exactly what we were looking for . Unfortunately there were a few things that let the cottage down, otherwise the score would be much higher. The worse things were the window in the bathroom above the kitchen leaks , all through the plaster, which can clearly be seen just by looking at it, whenever it rained the bathroom was drenched and was pleasant to use at all. The cleanliness was quite disappointing , it really does need a good clean , dirty floors , rugs, sofas, dust and dead bugs under things and in draws. The garden was also a huge let down as it can’t really be used , it’s just over grown, messy and quite full of pots etc, needs some TLC. Also the dryer didn’t work which made things difficult having a baby with us. I also think adding a big tv on the wall in the second bit of the living room would add quite a lot to the place for family’s with children or big family’s. overall we did enjoy our holiday but would of enjoyed it a lot better hasn’t we had all these problems.

    What a beautiful and individual cottage surrounded by country side, we loved it and had a great week relaxing and exploring the area. A couple of additional touches would make it even better.. Outside seating at the side of the house or in the back garden to enjoy the beautiful spring weather and watch the lambs play. Inside the seating around the woodburner was not very comfortable, we swapped sofas about from the conservatory for the week. I have only given a 5 for local amenities, that's because there is none, but that's the way we like it.

    Overall a fantastic stay. Only minor issues with certain facilities such as DVD player and oven which could possibly require updating.

    The cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed for a great family holiday. It is very secluded so not ideal unless you have a car as there is nothing locally but it is a great base to visit loads of places.
