Hot tub was a great addition, certainly helped with the aching muscles at the end of a long walk. Very private location with beautiful views. Very cosy and welcoming property. Loved our stay!

Miss Branch, Kingswinford, March 2014

The cottage is ideally situated for the central lakes. The views are spectacular. It is very well equipped with ample crockery and cutlery. The hot tub was great. The owners live next door and were on hand for queries but otherwise left us to enjoy our holiday. We intend to return and we would all heartily recommend this cottage to friends.

Mrs Willerton, Hull, March 2014

Fabulous accommodation. Wonderful views, and a great location.

Mr Budd, Hamilton, March 2014

We loved the position of the cottage in relation to nearby safe, scenic walks; the hot tub was great too! I found our double bed very comfy, there were plenty of games and was nice to have TVs in the bedrooms.
