    The place was wonderful, the location perfect and everything about the cottage was what we hoped, the only issue we had was with the property owner, who seemed to think there was nothing wrong with wandering around the property unannounced with her dog and not leaving until 8pm.... ordering Tesco’s deliveries to the property for herself without telling you and getting annoyed when you don’t accept the deliveries for her, and then turning up early one morning and hanging out with her friend having coffee and cake in the greenhouse.... very odd behaviour and totally unacceptable, we ended up leaving a day early as we were hoping for peace and privacy, which the owner wouldn’t allow us!

    A wonderful little cottage in a beautiful location. Nicky, the owner could not have been more warm or welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

    this cottage was by far the most expensive per night of 5 we have stayed in so far this trip, and was not the best. Its location was its strongest point, and also a drawback. It was splendidly isolated, but a 20 to 25 minute drive to the supermarket and not walking distance to a pub. The surrounding area was magnificent, just what we were hoping to find in the Lakes district. The cottage was very old and full of character. It was warm and cosy, and very well set up by the owner. This was appreciated particularly as the weather was cold, sometimes wet, and often windy, despite it being the start of summer. Just as expected. A gift of wine and a box of biscuits were much appreciated. The fire was set, was easily started, and there was enough wood for us to use this for 2 nights. There were many books on the Lakes in the cottage for us to peruse. There were pamphlets on walks. We used one of these, a challenging but rewarding experience. The garden was beautiful, unfortunately due to the weather we didn't spend any time in it. Some major drawbacks: It was hard to find. The sign on the front gate was weather worn and hard to see. It was also placed so it was difficult to see from the road. We were to take possession at 4 pm however when we arrived at 6pm the owner was still setting up and we had to wait in the car for half an hour. The shower needs attention. We could not always get hot water. We asked the owner for help with this but still had issues. We could not get the front door to open with the key, or the back door to lock. Luckily it was unlocked when we arrived, and due to its isolation we were not worried about leaving it unlocked. A few minor issues: A large fry pan would be helpful. The two provided were not large enough to cook a meal for two. We could not find soap, but had brought our own.

    We had a superb holiday in a beautiful little cottage. We were a little taken aback to find the owner still cleaning in the cottage when we arrived. We had left a message on her phone saying we should arrive around 4pm. However we were stuck on the M6, due to two accidents and work being carried out. We didn't arrive at the cottage until 5.30 and the owner was still in the cottage. She didn't leave the grounds until about an hour after we had arrived which was a little strange to say the least. The cottage is beautiful. The knives aren't sharp enough and it was difficult to peel/chop veg for Sunday dinner. Also the frying pan is the size of a side plate so we were glad we took a large one for our English breakfast. Everything else was absolutely wonderful. We were blessed in having the gorgeous Easter weather. Listening and watching the beautiful birds was awesome. The scenery is amazing. Please note you don't get any phone signal at all in and around the cottage but we liked this. There is a landline with an honesty box for emergencies and to let your family know you've arrived safely. We would definitely come back again.

    We had a lovely long weekend here. It was quite remote, very peaceful and relaxing, which is what we were looking for. Only noise was the sound of birds singing and sheep bleating! We found the cottage delightful, small and cosy. Loved the wood burner, the small homely touches of freshly cut flowers placed around the house by the owner. It was very clean and comfortable, and was everything we had hoped it would be. The sign on the gate was partly rubbed off, and it would have helped to have known the name of the house that shared the same road across the field. Thankfully, the local post office/ shop was open, and I received accurate information from the helpful staff - difficult if you were arriving later or in the dark though. But that was the only slightly negative aspect. If it’s peace and tranquillity you’re looking for, this is perfect!

    We had a great time in this wonderful secluded cottage. The perfect place to get away from it all and a great base for hiking in the local hills.

    The cottage was as pretty as in the pictures but the oven had no readable settings i.e. they had worn off so I had to guess the temperature the shower could only be operated from the main red switch on the landing the cottage was only set up for two people, a 2 seater sofa in the lounge, so I had to move an armchair from the conservatory, and that was a struggle. the owner was much in evidence and quite bossy Despite all that it was cosy, with a lovely garden and views and I might consider staying again??

    Spotlessly clean, warm and inviting. Great location for walks. Welcome wine and biscuits and a cosy wood burner. Lovely owner who cares about the enjoyment of guests.
