Lovely cottage with everything you could ever need. Absolutely spotless with the added bonus of using the owners membership at Armathwaite Hall where we used the swimming pool which was fantastic. Would have loved to have stayed longer!!.
We were all so impressed with the standard of this cottage. Small family run business which is ideal for relaxation or exploring the Lake District. The complementary spa passes were a nice touch. I would highly recommend to friends and family. Great value for money too.
My husband, dog and and I wanted to spend Chirstmas in the lakes and we had a wonderful stay at Squirrels Drey. It is great for a getaway in the middle of no where. The house is amazing, we couldn't believe how lovely it was. It had everything you could need, good facilities and anything needed for cooking. I think in the summer it would be amazing as it has a great outdoor area, which due to the weather we couldn't make the most of. There is a games room and you can use passes to the the local spa which was amazing too. Would highly recommend staying here. Would stay again.
Another fabulous stay. Peaceful, Relaxing and a stones throw from fabulous walking in the Lakes. Everything you could possibly need with no fuss at all. My second stay here and I'll be back later this year..
Stayed here for a week from 20/8/16 to 27/8/16. Beautiful cottage, beautifully decorated. Very modern. Set over 3 levels it's very spacious. It's in the style of a townhouse.
We didn't get to meet Marion as she was on holiday herself, but her mum Pauline was there and was only to happy to help with anything.
There was a lovely hamper in the cottage on arrival. Freshly baked bread, homemade jam and biscuits, tea ,coffee, eggs, milk and butter. What a lovely gesture! You can buy fresh eggs, jams, butter etc and it's lovely that there is "honesty" boxes to put the money in when purchasing!
Squirrels Drey is on a working farm literally in the middle of no where. I would say you could no way visit without a car!!!
As it's a working farm there is a real problem with flies and wasps through the summer months. There was a can of fly spray and a fly squatter under the sink in the cottage.
Very peaceful setting and lovely lovely scenery. Cockermouth approx a 4-5 mile drive away. That's the nearest town with shops, supermarkets etc.
Sat nav essential I would say!!!
Right next to the cottage is the games room. Ideal for my 16 year old who loves playing pool. Couldn't work out how to use the juke box however! The pool is 50p a game though so we had to stock up on our 50p's.
There is a free washer on site the dryer is £1.00 for half an hour but to be honest I didn't Think it was very good! There is a washing line and pegs in the cottage tho if weather is nice.
I would highly recommend a visit here and a perfect location to get away from it all.
Keswick is a lovely town only about a 20 minute drive away. Whinlatter forest park is gorgeous and only about a 15 minute drive. We had a lovely boat trip around derwent water and that is at Keswick.
Lots to do and see and great for families as well as a great getaway for couples
Great base to explore North Lakes. Beautiful cottage, very high quality and very clean. Lovely welcome pack with homemade bread, jam, milk, butter, eggs etc- just great. Travelled with teen-ager and adult children and the games room was brilliant - darts, pool, table football and xbox went down a storm . Thanks very much Marion and Pauline
Squirrels Drey is a perfect holiday rental. It was very clean, tastefully furnished, spacious and well equipped. We would highly recommend it.
