    Mini break
    Really happy with the property, good location, was all we wanted. Nothing fancy, small, but matched the description. Good parking which is sometimes a problem in the lakes. Will probably book again.

    Prefect setting
    We loved staying in this little cottage with the sound of the Beck close by. It was clean and well supplied. We would visit again.

    5/5 Excellent

    A lovely stay in the heart of the Lake District
    A cosy 2-up 2 down cottage. We were a family of 4 adults and it was a little crampt but the amenities met our needs and the cottage is situated in the heart of the most beautiful countryside. There is no wifi but we managed with 4G. Excellent value for money.

    4/5 Good

    Cosy cottage close to Winlatter
    Just a two night stop in a perfectly decent home. Very cosy - heating and space. Agree with other comments about the double room. Maybe it should be made into a bunk bed room them master is where the twin is. The crampedness of the double with the wardrobe in the way was fine for just two nights. Location was good; very easy to do a decent walk from the front door. Lovely to hear the beck when ready on the window seat with the window open.
