    Had a lovely few days. So much to see and do, with not enough time so we are planning a return visit. Borran Annexe was very comfortable and has a homely feel. It was nice and clean with amazing views. Thank you for all the little things that sometimes get forgot. The information pack was highly informative and helped us to locate amenities, however postcodes would have been more beneficial. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend for others to have a visit.

    We really enjoyed the cottage. Decent size garden and living area. Quite a high spec of equipment although no proper oven or washer. The location is beautiful, local amenities aren’t there because of this, however there is a great pub over the road. Ulveston and Greenod aren’t too far away. Grizedale Forest is close by and worth a visit. There’s plenty of farm tracks for walking the dogs and deer running around early in the morning. The bedroom is very nice and the bed is great, however it isn’t separate from the living area.This didn’t bother us, but I don’t think the photos showed this. View from the living area was excellent

    Beautiful location,bedroom not separate as it looks in pics but not a problem to us. Ideal for our 2 small dogs who were safe when let in the garden when gate closed. Cleaning needs to be better, I had to sweep round and clean the sink and top of toliet as I thought they were marbled but it was dirt.

    We stayed for 3 nights over a weekend in May. The Annexe is in a great location - beautiful setting and so relaxing and peaceful. BUT the accommodation wasn't up to standard I'm afraid. It is a perfect size for 2 adults but there were a few issues. General cleanliness was poor. It needs a deep clean. The furniture was of a poor quality and dated. The TV was old and hardly any channels - not great when you are relaxing at night. There was NO WI-FI - this was a big issue for us as we had poor reception. The pub opposite had Wi-Fi so you must be able to have this installed. And as the TV was so bad we had no other way to watch movies etc. There was no sofa to relax on - only 2 wicker conservatory style chairs. The kitchen had no oven - the microwave was too complex to use. So everything was cooked on the hob. The crockery, utensils, glassware and cutlery were all a bit grubby. They needed to go through a dishwasher. The fridge wasn't adequate - there is space for a full length fridge freezer. The toilet cistern didn't work properly and kept flowing. Drawers and cupboards were dirty and in need of a good clean. Like I said, the location was stunning and the garden was lovely for sitting out in. The owners really need to have a rethink about how they present this property. And it needs a good clean.

    We loved it. Great secure garden for the dogs and a good pub over the road for evening meals! We would certainly like to visit again One suggestion we'd make is to have a small pet-friendly hoover to make it easier should a dog be particularly hairy!! It was a bit of a pain having just a brush to sweep up

    This was an amazing place to stay - cottage is with a lot of attention to detail and had even a cute 'welcome pack' for our dog. Definitely a 10/10 and we will be back! Thanks for a lovely weekend.

    Lovey little Annex, very picturesque location. Well equipped home from home. Very comfortable bed. Easy parking. Lovely welcome card and Pink grate fruit and gin marmalade which I thought was a nice touch. We took our dog and property and location was ideal for him. Would definitely stay here again.
