    Nice cottage with own parking, dog friendly, very rural. Oven and shower a bit quirky but adequate. Nice and warm.

    Lovely cottage. Enclosed garden. When at property spent most time in the conservatory. We loved it.

    Very well equipped, idyllic location, cosy interior. Liked wood burning stove and the fact that it was laid ready to be lit. Owner needs to repair front door lock which got stuck. Shower was cold on second morning.

    Had A grand time, very stormy, very wet, extremely windy, just what I wanted, the owner is a lovely lady and was very welcoming, I enjoyed my stay immensely.

    The cottage and location is lovely. We cant do the fell walking etc, we wanted a rural spot..away from everything. Which we got with this cottage, we thought. The owner was still inside when we arrived, we waited half an hour to get in after a 4 1/2 hour drive. She asked if she could come midweek to clear leaves from the front drive. We agreed this was ok. Thursday morning...she was back! We had decided to have our last day relaxing in the cottage. Bear in mind the level of the ground floor is eye level with the outside. This did mar an otherwise lovely week away. However she did leave when my husband said something.

    The cottage is in a beautiful location and quite secluded. Although it was warm and cozy inside it is in need of a bit of an update in places such as the bathroom where the shower doesn’t turn off unless you switch the power off from the mains switch on the landing. The cooker in the kitchen has all the temperature settings hand written on as they have worn off and if you follow these settings your food will get burnt! The cooking utensils are very sparse and the frying pan is just about big enough to fry a single egg in. We felt the cottage is priced at a level where you would expect these things to be of a better standard. Having said all of the above we had a really good weeks holiday and will definitely visit the area again.

    This is a lovely little cottage in the beautiful Duddon valley. It is also very dog friendly.



    out of 10

    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!
