    While Haweswater and Ullswater are a short drive from the cottage, the list of places you can explore and visit from here are endless, with the Eden valley and the Scottish Borders are all within easy driving distance. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    Absolutely perfect. By far the best cottage myself and my family have had the pleasure of staying in. The owner is fantastic and very welcoming. We will definitely be staying again!
