“Lovely little place to stay”
Reviewed 2 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My partner & I spent three nights at the cottage last weekend & had a lovely time. The cottage itself is beautiful & the log fire really makes the place - just remember to take logs with you, although you can buy these locally too.

The location was really good, but I do think that you need to have a car to stay here as you need to drive to the nearest pub, shop etc. There is a fairly busy single carriageway road not far from the cottage, but you really couldn't hear it inside the house.

There are heaps of things to do nearby - so much so that we didn't get to use the spa passes in the end! These were great to have though & judging by the lovely meal we had at the Swan I'm going to say that they would be well worth using if you have time (the meal was amazing & the hotel & pool looked really lovely from what we saw).

On top of all this, Christine (the owner) was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish & was very prompt & helpful with all of her responses.

My only tip for the stay would be to take hand towels with you, as there aren't any in the house. Christine did tell us we would need to provide our own towels, but I stupidly thought she only meant bath towels so do take hand towels with you too!

The only thing I would like to see put into the house that wasn't there is a hairdryer (and an extra tea towel in the kitchen would be handy too). But as these were literally the only things missing from this otherwise really beautiful & well-equipped cottage, I don't think that's a deal breaker!

Oh and some directions to the most local shops might be good, as we had a satnav & that seemed confused about where we could get food from! But all of the tour leaflets/maps provided in the kitchen were great.

Please note that there is also no wifi or internet in the cottage - this wasn't a problem for us, as it was nice to have a break from busy modern life, but just something to note. The tv in the living room did have sky tv & a DVD player though, which was great for relaxing!

Overall, I would definitely go back to this lovely place & if I could move my job I'd definitely be trying to purchase the cottage from Christine too! Highly recommended, loveky place to stay.

Thank you for your lovely review on the cottage. I am delighted you and your partner had a lovely stay at the cottage. I am glad you liked the location of the cottage, which is very popular with many guests, I do always recommend that a car is necessary due to its rural location. I am really pleased that you found the booking of the cottage from start to finish very easy and customer friendly. It is a shame that you didn’t get to use the leisure facilities at the Swan Hotel as they are great. It’s great to know that you had a lovely meal at the Swan, which is a favourite eating place of ours. All feedback from guests is considered carefully and I will definitely look into leaving more towels and directions to the local shops. We are considering providing Wi-Fi at the cottage (BT hotspots are available so BT customers can use these for free). Thanks again for your very positive review and hope to welcome you back to our cottage again in the future.

“Lovely cottage in peaceful surroundings, perfect location to explore the Lake District.”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Comfortable and characterful! We had a wonderful week at Whitestone Cottage in May. Loved the location, away from some of the busy resort centres but close to the main attractions. The addition of the Leisure passes at the Swan hotel was a real bonus, especially after a day of walking. Would highly recommend this lovely place to stay.
