    The barn was much bigger than we'd expected with a lovely secure garden for the dog. The weather was a bit changeable but the barn was warm (even without lighting the fire in the lounge). It was slightly disconcerting when the biomass boiler came on at odd times of the day when it was supposed to come on at midday. It's very noisy! That was our only slight grumble. The cottage is in a fantastically remote location and is perfect for a relaxing holiday. The scenery is lovely and the walks nearby are wonderful. The nearest shop is about a 15 minute drive away and there are several pubs for food within a drive of 20 minutes or so. We enjoyed the food at the Bower House. We would definitely recommend and will hopefully go back.

    A lovely cottage, nice and remote but a short drive or walk into Eskdale or Boot. Could only get BBC perhaps a sky box and new garden furniture. Would definitely return.
