    • “House was in a good location, close to local shops etc Excellent base for all our walking needs We were able to take a dog without extra charge all equipment in the house was good and plenty of everything Excellent value for money Only one downside for a family would be comfortable seating in lounge really only for 4 adults and the house can take 6. Would be ideal for 4 adults and 2 children”

    • “The was a great property within easy walking distance to the centre of the village, and the takeaway / chip shop on the corner for rainy nights. The rooms were well furnished comfortable with plenty of built in storage in the bedrooms. There was a large area to park behind the houses but getting back onto the road from between the buildings was quite tight with a blindspot to the main road and the only real downside to the stay.”

    • “We enjoyed our stay at Low House. The cottage was clean with a good amount of space. One thing that could improve things would be to provide a travel cot and highchair, we had to take ours and it was a squeeze in the car. I think this would put me off booking somewhere that doesn't provide these in future.”

It was in a really good position for walkers and there were lots of walks starting from the house. We would highly recommend this for couples or families.”

    Mr Bell, Holmfirth, December 2014

    • “Although you need to pass through narrow winding roads, the cottage is excellently located in the central part of Lake District. It is very compact and everything was clean. Cheap price. Very satisfied.”

    Mr Muscat, Tarxien, December 2014

    • “The best thing was that we got lucky with beautiful sunny weather throughout. The cottage was very sweet and was perfect for four of us. The location was ideal, close to the shops, petrol station, nice walks and Coniston Water. Although located close to the town, the place was nice and quiet. The owner has thought of most needs for the guests to stay in the cottage. Fully equipped kitchen, wi-fi and tv - dvd player were helpful. The beds were comfortable and we had a very nice sleep everyday.”

    Mrs Parikh, Folkestone, September 2014

    • “This was a fantastic cottage with everything we required. It was warm, clean and comfortable and in a perfect location. Definitely hope to return.”

    Mr Gould, STOURBRIDGE, May 2014

    Mr Morgan, Barnsley, April 2014

    • “Being in the village centre made it easy to access shops and eateries without driving. House was very warm and comfortable.”
