Lovely cottage. Cosy and comfortable, yet spacious. Really enjoyed the woodburner, and free wood was a nice touch. The kitchen was well equipped and you could easily get ten people around the dining table in there. Great location, handy for Keswick and Cockermouth. Plenty to do in the area if the weather's not great, although we were lucky and the walking around there is fantastic. Literally from the doorstep, you could be up Skiddaw in a couple of hours, but if you don't do mountains there are some lovely walks close by. Saw red squirrels in the woods just up the hill opposite. Lots of maps and walks info provided at the cottage. Also a nice pub up the road with good food. The ducks were very sweet!
Just back from a weekend stay in Brook House with friends. The cottage and the location were perfect for us. Spacious bedrooms with comfortable clean beds and lovely spotlessly clean bathrooms.. The cosy lounge and log fire were a big hit and the kitchen had everything we could have needed..and more! Would definitely visit again and recommend it to anyone. Thank you Brook House!
We had a wonderful holiday in the lake district staying at brooks cottage. The cottage had a large dinning/kitchen area and a lovely living room with a log fire. It was perfect for our family of 7 plus a baby. Mrs A was so kind and helpful giving us advice and making sure our stay was as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. The surrounding area is picturesque and the cottage is well equipped with great cooking and kitchen facilities. The area is wonderful for hiking and walking.
Thank you very much
A perfect cottage for our mini trip to the lakes, everything was clean and very comfortable. A good location for the north lakes, Alison was very accommodating and the cottage included everything needed.
As a family from California staying at Alison's farm house was the perfect way to experience The English Countryside. We had such a wonderful time!
Alison was a very kind and attentive hostess showing us around her garden and giving us duck eggs to try.
Brook house 2 was immaculate and comfortable.
Our kids loved watching the ducks and playing in the swings in front of the house.
We enjoyed staying here and highly recommend it, specially if you're on your way to Scotland.
Idyllic setting. Quiet location, great views, very relaxing, a taste of real village life. The accommodation is exceedingly well equipped, spotlessly clean and simply beautiful. Our extended family of children and grand-children have just spent a wonderful week there - it is turning into an annual trip!
Alison is just amazing - truly one of the kindest, helpful and lovely people we know. Nothing is too much for her and she makes the stay just perfect. Thank you so much.
