Guest Reviews


    • “Fab Cottage, Highly recommended!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Can't praise this place enough. Even though its 'self catering' when we arrived they'd popped some fresh milk, coffee, fruit and biscuits in ready to get us set up. The whole cottage was immaculate throughout - the devil is in the detail and little touches like a big draw full of DVDs kept our 2 small boys entertained in the evenings... They also really appreciated the 'night lights' in the hallways that came on in evenings too! The facilities inside all felt top quality and we weren't left needing for anything, it comfortably slept 6 of us. The lady who ran the cottage was lovely and really keen to make sure we had everything we needed to have a great stay. 5 stars, highly recommended!”

    Mrs Curran, Salford, August 2014

    • “The cottage was amazing. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Without any doubt the nicest cottage we have ever stayed at.”

    Miss Hilton, Bury, August 2014

    • “Excellent property well positioned to explore the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales.”

    Mr Mitchell, Kendal, July 2014

    • “nice people and super location. The apartment was fine in all ways.”

    Mr Birkett, Herne Bay, June 2014

    • “Good location for walks and sightseeing. Very close to road connections in the region; but still felt rural and quiet. We were made to feel most welcome by our host and found her to be very helpful. Cottage was lovely and very comfortable. Milton was a very picturesque hamlet; although driving down the narrow country lanes was a bit daunting at first, we soon got used to it and sussed out when best to avoid other road users. We were fortunate to enjoy wonderful weather, so made good use of it through day trips and scenic walks and really did not have time to visit any of the big house attractions or museums in the area. Good base for visiting the Southern Lakes and surrounding area.”

    Mr Strang, Edinburgh, June 2014

    • “Greystones is lovely and the way it is set out is very good, 3 floors - Bedrooms top and bottom and kitchen diner/ Lounge in between, A lovely couple run it and they are close enough to solve any problems but leave you to enjoy your holiday. I would recommend this to anyone.”

    Mr Prior, Portsmouth, June 2014

About the location


Arnside 3 miles; Kendal 7 miles.

Milnthorpe, once an important medieval market town, is located in the South Lakes between Kendal and Carnforth, just a few miles from the seaside village of Arnside. Reminders of the town's history can still be found today amongst the narrow lanes and historic buildings, which speak of a time when a coach and four was more common than a four-wheel drive. Set in lovely rolling countryside, the area has much to offer, with the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis offering a tropical hall and butterfly house. Dallam Tower and Levens Hall (historic and beautiful stately homes with their deer parks, topiary and ornamental gardens) provide a great day out for visitors. Leighton Hall, Sizergh Castle, the Great Lakes Aquarium, Windermere and Grizedale Forest are also all within easy reach and well worth a visit. From stunning limestone pavements and wonderful woodland walks to beaches and scenic coastal paths, there really is something for everyone.
