Spacious cottage, clean and well equipped with a few personal touches, situated in a quiet village, 1 mile walk to the local pub and a 5 mile drive to local shops, ideal central location to visit all the Lake District has to offer, within 1 hours drive to most popular attractions, such as Wildlife park, local distillery, Scafell Pike, Railway rides, Lake Windermere boat cruises, Museums, Castles and much more.
Would highly recommend.
Ideal setting if you want to get away from it all.
We had 3 small dogs with us which we thought may go against us but the owner was not put out by this thankfully.
With regard to the dogs we had to keep an eye on them when in the garden as they could have easily got out under the gap in the gate to the side of the property.
We did point this out to the owner and he said he would look into this.
We would certainly recommend this property which was clean and tidy.
Also the owner was only a phone call away should we need him.
Would book again in the future.
Thank you and regards

Lovely area cottage felt home from home with everything you could need. Beds clean & comfy & some great walking areas all around. We ate out in the evenings at the pub up the lane a good mile walk but we had great weather for it & the guys that worked in there are so friendly we felt relaxed & the food was great. We took our 20 week old puppy & he was so good he loved it . Good cottage at the right price.
As soon as we stepped over the door we smiled - cottage exactly as advertised, big cosy sitting room with log-effect stove, massive squashy sofa, tv, games, and spotless. Torpenhow is a gorgeous little place and we loved the 12c church at the end of the lane that was open every day. Torpenhow was out of this world, a tiny rural hamlet, we could watch farmers going to work from the front windows, hear all the lambs baa-ing from the back and the kitchen (which was bright and fully stocked). The bathroom was fab, really modern with a massive bathtub under the (powerful) shower. We had everything we needed, Val and Chris were there instantly when we'd a couple of questions and nothing was any bother. I cannot recommend it highly enough, such a fab cottage so close to the seaside, towns and countryside of the Lake District.
Ok before i start review this cottage would be great with improvements. We booked a three night stay,unfortunately we only managed one night this was mainly due to very uncomfortable bed( not much sleep) also the couch was very uncomfortable so much so you could feel wooden frame and the cusioning was way past it best. In the kitchen the hob wasnt very clean and two of the bowls had damage and couldnt be used.
The kids were very upset not to find any sign of a trampoline as advertised also the back garden as shown in advert was actually number one's.We couldnt and wouldnt see ourselves relaxing so we had to find other accommodation.no matter what you pay you expect a certain standard.
Great little cottage, very clean and homely after a day walking .
Short of nothing lovely area and great pub in the next village would recommend for a short break .
