4/5 Good

Lovely peaceful location
Great base for exploring the Lake District's beautiful fells and lakes, spacious house and garden, comfortable living room and kitchen. Lovely having the sound of the waterfall nearby.

5/5 Excellent

Second time here
It's great. That's why we came again. The location is peaceful and there are quite a few good local walks like Dob Gill and High Rigg where you rarely meet anyone else. Cottage is cosy and has everything you need. Plenty of hot water etc. We will probably come again another year.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely cosy cottage.
A wonderful cottage in a great quiet location.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic Location
The cottage had everything we needed, a fabulous quiet location. Jamie was really responsive throughout. Definitely would recommend to stay there.

5/5 Excellent

Another great stay
Second time here, and we loved it as much as before. Spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Not a scrap of chintz in sight.
