We booked last minute as we were planning to go up scarfell pike. We booked to stay for three nights. It was easy enough to find using Google maps on our phones. it is situated between foxfield and broughton with about 4/5 pubs in the area. Recommend bringing cash before you arrive as there is no cash machine at the local bank.
The cottage is attached via a garage to the owners house next door. The cottage is very nice inside with wooden beamed ceilings and traditional furniture. We were greeted with a welcome card and a bottle of wine and milk in the fridge. Downstairs there is a nice log burner which adds to the character, The decor throughout the cottage is very nice and comfortable. We all agreed that the duvets were especially good.
On our first morning we got up quite early around 6ish as its about an hour to the start point of our hike and there was no hot water or heating in the house which wasn't ideal, i know we could have rung the owners but i doubt they wanted a call so it was cold showers. When we got back the radiators were only on for set periods so drying our clothes after a soggy day up Scarfell took a little while, but a log fire made up for that.
The kitchen was a good size and had everything you would need, oven, microwave, toaster etc and there is lots of fridge space. There were 4 toilets, 1 shower, 1 shower/bath and a bath. The garden we didn't venture into too much due to weather but it seems nice and there was a sizable conservatory.
Local village is small and we ended up going to conniton as there was a little more going on there in terms of pub and food as the pubs in broughton close at a decent time.
Overall we were all very happy with our say and would highly recommend staying here.
