    Firbank Cottage is in an ideal location for touring the North Western Lake District, being roughly 40 minutes from the start of many fell walks in the Buttermere area and having easy access to Skiddaw and Blencathra. We headed to the beach at Maryport, about 10 minutes away on rest days which our dog loved. The garden is fantastic for dogs being large and totally secure and would be great for children too. A bonus is the conservatory, great for relaxing in and with a tiled floor so no worries about wet paws or feet if raining. The inside of the cottage is even better than the photographs, and the extra downstairs toilet most useful. The village itself is very quiet which suited us and Cockermouth is less than 10 minutes away for shopping. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend unreservedly.

    This was a lovely house very spacious & comfortable & absolutely everything we could possibly need was provided. The garden was huge & great fun for the children & dogs, the only reason I've scored a 9 is because the grass was very long - like a field so everyone got very wet feet when it rained. The conservatory at the back of the house was a great space & nice to be in even if it was raining. I don't think it says in the info but there are 2 toilets, one down stairs. Nothing much to do in the immediate area but only 4mls to Maryport where there is Click & Climb & Cave & Wave which the kids loved & it's also an interesting sea port. Would definitely stay there again if wanted to be in that area.
