“Beautiful cottage in a great location”

We have just returned from a fantastic new year break at this cottage with some friends and would highly recommend it. It is beautifully decorated and has pretty much everything you could need for a short break. Wi-fi, underfloor heating and powerful showers were just a few of the things that we really appreciated. The owners were really friendly and helpful and provided a good deal of written information on the surrounding area.

The cottage is perfectly situated just off the M6 (no traffic noise at all), which meant that we could easily travel to Penrith, Ullswater and beyond. There's plenty to do in the local area and it was lovely to come back to this homely cottage at the end of each day. Would definitely return.

“A delightful cottage”

Stayed for a week to visit the Lake District for the first in many years, we looked around a chose this cottage on location, reviews and having parking for two cars.
As others have said this is an upside down barn conversion with a double and "compact" twin, with a good size lounge, dining and kitchen areas upstairs. The conversion had been carried out last year to a very high standard, we loved the bathroom and would have happily taken it home with us, and the furnishings were generally good.
Downsides? The Wifi was not really usable and there is no garden - but neither of these things spoiled our holiday in any way
