“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The first thing to say is that the pictures don't really do this property justice! What you notice when you walk in is the attention to detail - the owners have cut no corners in making the cottage as homely and cosy as possible, and you can see quality throughout the house. The house was just the right size for a family of four, and the kids even had their own ensuite bathroom with power shower. Our bathroom was luxurious, with a lovely deep bath that we plnked the kids in the first evening. We also loved the scones waiting for us when we arrived, and had fresh eggs from the resident hens in the morning! Both rooms have flatscreen TV with freeview, as does the front room. There is also a lovely log fire, although we didn't use it as it wasn't cold enough, but we'd love to return in the winter! What can I say about the owners? Absolutely lovely couple, very friendly, and David is always on hand to offer some enthusiastic tips for a day out. Christine even played with the kids in the garden and helped us build a dam in the stream at the back of the cottage (which we later dismantled so as not to create a flood!). The house was a great base for exploring the lakes and David offered some great ideas for round trips, as well as short cuts to avoid the inevitable summer traffic hotspots. The only downside, for us Kentish folk, is that it is not close enough! Having said that, it's definitely worth the trip!

“Fantastic home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Wonderful stay at the converted stable. Freshly made scones, cream and jam was a super treat after a long journey. The owners live next door and are there should you ever need anything. Beautiful property that is equipped to a very very high standard was an absolute pleasure to be in for a break. Thank you.
