4/5 Good

Rustic cabin In Beautiful location
For the most part, this is a great place to stay, though it has some quirks that visitors should know about in advance. The location is absolutely stunning and very peaceful and it is a great base for hiking around Glenridding. The road up to the cottage is pretty rough and narrow, but it is passable (and very beautiful). The cottage itself is cozy. The owner sent detailed and helpful instructions before we arrived which were very helpful. The owner did want us to bring our own towels, which was a bit inconvenient because we do not live in the UK but might not be an issue for most visitors. On the whole, this was great value (much cheaper than other 2 bedrooms in the area) and a fabulous location for exploring the Lake District. I would recommend it.

Heavenly location
A charming period cottage, sensitively updated and very well-eqipped. Fantastic location near Ullswater north of Glenridding. The track to the cottage is rough, but the worst bit is just after the cattle grid - if I could get up it in a 1967 MGB, cars with normal ground clearance will have no problem! The new patio area has extensive views and there were 15 species of birds in the garden as well as the red squirrels. The kitchen had all we needed to cook all week and the cottage stayed cool in the unusually hot weather.
