    A very lovely apartment. Fairly small but very well kept, and the garden area is smaller than the pictures too. Doesn't matter too much as you are in the middle of the countryside. In a beautiful location, very idyllic, wonderful views. Very short walk to the edge of Wastwater and brilliant position for walks. Nearest pub about an hour walk through fields and public footpaths or a short drive. The kitchen is very good for cooking and has good storage space and facilities (though could do with a little more cutlery). Lots of parking if you have more than one car. Overall would recommend, a very lovely stay.

    One of the finest locations we’ve ever stayed in a lovely cottage with everything we needed

    Fantastic apartment. Idea for a peaceful break, lots of walking straight from the door.

    Our fourth stay here and we love it! Nothing to do except walk and appreciate the beautiful scenery! So peaceful! Well equipped although I would prefer a washer to a dishwasher especially if we were there a full week with our grandson .

    This is without doubt the best accommodation I have stayed at in the Lake District by some distance as well. The accommodation was spotlessly clean warm and cosy, everything you could possibly need was catered for down to some very nice touches, such as some milk in the fridge and cleaning and washing facilities provided for. The area was beautiful, absolutely stunning scenery and only short walk away down to Wastwater lake itself. The location of the accommodation was within easy travelling distance should you want to travel further afield to explore different parts of the Lakes and beyond. Quite simply a wonderful relaxing and very enjoyable week in the Lakes made all the more pleasurable because of the quality of the accommodation, the weather was even good for the most part as well. I returned home very happy with my batteries full recharged. I will certainly book this accommodation again when I am on holidays in the Lake District.

    Location is everything and Buckbarrow has an ideal location for a good break from the maddening crowd. Local amenities are a car ride away (hence 7/10 score) but all fine (10/10) when you get there. Lack of a mobile signal is a joy.

    a very modern apartment with everything you could possibly need. the owners have really made this cottage a very enjoyable place to stay. views are fantastic.

    Second time to Greendale, but this flat was better than the previous. All on offer was as stated in the brochure. Would happily go back.
