4/5 Good

Lovely cottage and area
Lovely cottage,very quirky,we all loved staying in it. Beautiful location with very friendly people in village,great place to explore the lakes from,easy access to main road and motorway network. Thank you for all the little touches in the kitchen and bathroom. Would highly recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Ideal location for a weekend away
We rented Colby cottage for a friends weekend for birthday celebrations. Its a beautiful property in an ideal location. The house was clean and tidy, beautifully dressed with high quality furnishings and equipped with everything we needed. I received a message from Nathan checking everything was ok on Saturday, reassuring to know we had contact if we had needed something, which we didn’t, We loved it and would love to return 😃

5/5 Excellent

Amazing property
This is an amazing property with everything needed for your stay. Excellent location for the town and lovely countryside walks. Small areas of improvement and this may just be something I would appreciate. As we travelled a long distance and have never used this website before I would prefer to know the checkin details (e.g collection of the keys) the day before. Also details of parking would be helpful on the website to save confusing on arrival. Nathan was super helpful and would definitely stay again if planning to be in the area.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely weekend
Great base to visit the lakes - lots of walks and nice pubs close by. Fantastic bath to relax those weary limbs. Would return in future. Comment above re. Listing was because it stated 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
