“Excellent Stay at the Jenny's Croft Cottage.”

My first experience at the Jenny's Croft Cottage was really memorable. I was really amazed with the size of the cottage, the Facilities, the Welcome hamper and the furnishing were 5 star. The cottage was really clean, well maintained and beautifully decorated.The views from the Cottage it self was really incredible particularly up to the Cumbrian Moors. The weather was really nice as I thought that it was going to rain but it turned out to be sunny which was good. I would highly recommend Jenny's Croft and The Rowley Estate to anyone. Thank you Charlie & Christine

“Elk Cottage, next to Jennys Croft”

My son and I spend 7 wonderful nights in Elk Cottage which is owned by the Rowley Estates. The cottage was more than we expected. The attention to detail on the little things, when we arrived was delightful. The 2 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, were clean and well presented. The cottage had everything and I mean everything you would need when staying away from home! Down to the fully laden spice rack.

We would are looking to come back next year and make this a yearly holiday.

Thank you for making our stay very enjoyable. Hope to see you next year!

“A fantastic country getaway!”

We travelled to Jenny's Croft for a Christmas/New Year break with friends. From the moment we booked through the Rowley Estates, the service was exceptional. Jenny’s Croft was in an ideal location for everything our group wanted to do from walks, early morning runs to pub lunches. The internal finish is also of a very high quality, from the kitchen having all the appliances and equipment needed to the massive warm comfy beds. The hamper on arrival was also another lovely touch.
I would thoroughly recommend Jenny’s Croft and The Rowley Estates to anyone.
