    Fantastic cottage, so cosy and welcoming,the new kitchen was very well equipped and such a lovely design. The location of the cottage was such a good base for all our outdoor activities and the view from the patio was amazing and time consuming especially with a cuppa in hand. Can highly recommend the cottage and we will be back.

    Lovely holiday cottage! Nice and cosy, felt very homely. Lovely views from the cottage and great walks from the door. Short walk to coniston with its pubs, restaurants and cafes. Also easy access to other areas of the lakes. The cottage itself was very well equipped with everything we needed and the utility room was perfect for muddy boots and dogs! Only thing to note is there is no where enclosed to let the dog of, so need to take it out for a short walk for toileting which wasn't very clear in the description. Would reccomend carries gate.

    A beautiful, cosy cottage with everything you need for a holiday. Could not have asked for anything more.

    A beautiful cottage with fabulous views of Coniston lake from the bedroom and lounge. Great area and locals were really friendly. Visitor book and information provided by the owners was really helpful and we had a fabulous meal at Steam as recommended on our last night with visits to some lovely pubs along the way. The cottage was warm and cosy, home from home. The bird feeders were a lovely touch and we all enjoyed bird spotting at breakfast. The cottage had a lovely garden that we could sit in and admire the beautiful view.
