“Little Esthwaite cottage...just perfect!”

Stayed 22-28th December 2012
After a horrendous 7 hour journey through floods and driving torrential rain from Kent, we had the most welcoming of greetings from Vernon the owner. He showed us in to our cosy cottage with christmas decorations and a welcome hamper - first thing that had to be done was light the wood burner and Vernon showed us how to do it.
It was fabulous waking up to a view of Esthwaite Water just a little way from the end of the garden. Our main reason for coming was a Christmas get-a-way, but also to go fly fishing, which you can do all year on Esthwaite Water. The weather was pretty kind to us - Christmas day was fairly warm, a bit of blue sky with sun intervals - so we went fly fishing at the bottom of the garden!
We cooked a proper Christmas dinner very easily - the kitchen was very well equiped with everything you could possibly need.
The bedroom was very nice - comfy bed and enough storage space - we even had fresh flowers on the bedside tables. Bathroom was good too - a nice powerful shower.
There was a nice outdoor patio space overlooking the lake - which I look foward to experiencing in warmer weather (yes we have booked again for May!) There was a log store so you could take as many logs for the woodburner as needed.
Just up the road is Hilltop House (Beatrix Potter) and within a short walk is the Tower Bank Arms where we had some very nice meals and some great ale!
We also ate in Coniston at the Black Bull - nice comfort food for a cold day - and also had some great ales!
Location wise - its very easy to get to all parts of the Lake District from here.
Looking foward to going back!

Very good directions from Vernon lead you to the cosy cottage. Very clean, new facilities. Including WIFI. Very friendly owner. I would recommend this lovely cottage to anyone looking for a cosy retreat in the lakes.
