Guest Reviews


    • “Lovely property - ideal for family gathering”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “I chose Underwood Cottage as it seemed to fit the bill - 3 bedrooms with en-suites plus a hot tub in beautiful surroundings to celebrate my 60th birthday with adult children & partners. I chose well! It was advertised as welcoming dogs and as we don't have a dog, I did wonder if the cottage might show "doggy wear and tear" . However, Underwood was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. An added bonus was that we could walk "The old Man of Coniston" from the doorstep together with many other delightful walks and bike rides without the need to get in the car. The weather was unseasonably cold but the cottage was snug and warm and we had no need to light the woodburner ( mores the pity). We would definitely book again.”
