Guest Reviews


    • “I do not give top marks easily but it would be difficult to do otherwise with this cottage. It was comfortable, spotlessly clean and more equipment than we expected or, indeed, needed. The area was quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed watching the birds in the garden. It was in a good position to be able to get to both towns and countryside easily. We had a most enjoyable holiday and will most certainly return as well as recommend it to our friends and family.”

    Mrs Baldry, Ipswich, October 2015

    • “A superb Cottage in a great location.”

    Mrs Sheldon, Sheffield, June 2015

    • “Apple Tree Cottage was in a good location, but very private which we did enjoy. It was a nice and relaxing cottage, very comfortable and presented very well, with plenty of hot water. A real pleasure was the gardens at the back and front of the premises. Yes we will return again, and the hospitality was also very nice.”

    Mr Butler, Durham, June 2015

    • “This is an excellent property. Ideal for a couple seeking to explore the Southern Lakes. It was superbly equipped with an easily accessible interior even with my very limited mobility.”

    Mr Reynolds, Newcastle, March 2015

    • “The overall standard of the cottage was excellent, it was warm cosy, very comfortable and set back far enough from the main road to be very quiet. We had a most enjoyable stay and would stay again.”

    Mr Steel, Archipelago, March 2015

    • “In a lovely position with walks from the cottage, hardly needed to use the car. Had a very comfortable bed, we slept very well.”

    Mr Roberts, Rugby, February 2015

    • “Proved an excellent base for a short break aimed at walking the fells. The standard of comfort was excellent and we would cheerfully use the cottage again.”

    Mr Leach, Matlock, November 2014

    Mrs O'connor, Didcot, October 2014

    • “A lovely cottage, well maintained and very comfortable. The cottage was close to the lake and other places of interest in the area. There was also a bridle path very close to the cottage which we enjoyed every day. The bed was exceptionally comfortable for a holiday let.”

    Mrs Tighe, Leicester, September 2014

    • “The Cottage was beautiful. The Visitors Book was interesting to read, told about all the wildlife around the cottage , well worth the £2.50 spent on bird feed for entertainment, was just as advertised, PERFECT.”

    Mrs Jobe, Newcastle Upon Tyne, June 2014

    • “Our first visit to The Lake District, the Cottage was in an excellent location for where we wanted to go to. The standard of the Cottage and the surroundings were outstanding, it was clean, comfortable and far enough from the main road to be nice and quiet.”
