“AMAZING WEEKEND BREAK!!!”
Reviewed 17 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Just got home from a fantastic relaxing weekend at the squirrels drey cottage, lovely owners that did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable, even when the water froze, bringing bottles of water was a nice touch and made you feel that bit more welcome. Can't wait to return with the little ones in the summer

“Excellent stay ”
Reviewed 6 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of November. From us arriving Monday afternoon to leaving Wednesday morning we had an amazing experience. The cottage is located in a secluded area out of the way of everything. The only noise you will hear is from the farm animals! The cottage was clean, spacious & very accommodating, it has just about everything you need. I would definitely recommend to a friend & will be returning in the future.

I cannot begin to explain how in love with Squirrels Drey and the Lake District I am. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and is immaculate.
Marion and Pauline are wonderful. So helpful and friendly. Everything you could possibly need is in the cottage and if not they will do their best to find it for you!
Some beautiful places to visit in the area, our favourite this year being Derwent Water Valley. Breathtakingly peaceful and stunning scenery.
Kennels available outside the cottage should you need them. Secure and sturdy kennels that are kept an eye of by Marion and Pauline while you're out.
Private outdoor yard - very useful for the pooch!
Overall just a lovely place to stay. Already thinking about coming back next year!!

“Great stay with a toddler”

We loved staying at Linskelfield in the Squirrel's Drey. The cottage was clean, comfortable and the facilities were excellent (including the powerful shower!). What set this apart for us was the thought the owners had put into staying with kids/toddlers. As well as a few toys, bath toys, kids booster seat and high chair they had swings and a climbing frame as well as lots of ride-on plastic toys.

Would highly recommend.

“Didn't expect it to be this good”
Reviewed 16 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We've Stayed in the Squirrels Drey in April me and some friends and it was amazing, the house was very clean and tidy, and furnished to a very high standard. It had everything we needed. The only thing that didn't work was the BBQ as it ran out of gas. Otherwise everything is perfect. I've already recommended the place to few friends, and I'll defiantly come back to stay at the same place in my net visit to the Lake District.
