“Cosy cottage with charm and character”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The cottage is very accessible being close to the A66 and once there we parked car in the village and started all our walks from the cottage. A 3 mile walk into Pooley Bridge meant we could extend our hikes out making use of the lake steamer service, perfect. The only trip out in the car was for provisions from near by shops.

The cottage is packed with character, cosy, well equipped and clean. The log fire turned out to be a real bonus after a long walk on what turned into a very wet June day!

Prior to the visit communication with owner was excellent and very helpful.

We would definitely return in the future.

“Beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 14 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at Gibson cottage for three nights. Lovely cottage with all the facilities could need and the owner was very helpful. Loved the fire. Was probably too warm to need it but as it was quite a wet weekend in the lakes a fire in the evening was a nice addition. We ate at the Kings Arms and the Brantwood next door. Good food and good value. Would def recommend Gibson cottage as a base to explore the Lakes.

“Historic cottage in great location between town and lake”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Great for a short stay. 2 miles from all the shops and amenities of Penrith (loved Booths!) yet just a couple of miles too down to the lake. The cottage was clean, cosy and thoughtfully equipped and there was plenty to explore nearby.

“Beautiful cosy cottage, fantastic location”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The Cottage is really nice and cosy, but had more than enough space for all our overpacked walking gear and endless doggy stuff. It has a good sized and well equipped kitchen, nice comfy sofas and a good sized fire to warm up after some long nippy walks. The bedrooms are of a good size and the big King sized beds are super comfortable.
The location is great! The village is really nice and pretty and the pub is worth a visit. It is really easy to get to, being so close to the A66 (although it still feels like a nice remote lakeland village). It is also a great base to visit all different areas of the lakes.
We will be revisiting again soon hopefully, and would definitely recommend a visit!
