    • “Lovely”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A really nice, clean cottage which is out in the country but close to many villages and towns. The welcome pack we received was tailored to us and included something for the teenagers-a very nice touch. The two bedrooms are a good size with plenty of cupboard space. The kitchen is small but perfectly functional. They have just upgraded the TV and there are a few games in a cupboard if you would rather not watch telly. One point to note is that they don't have internet access-it may be an issue for some, but not for us. The back garden is just grass but it is large and you can sit out on the patio and watch the huge array of birds fly in and out of the neighbours gardens - woodpeckers etc. You would really need a car to stay there but there are lovely walks right on the doorstep. The neighbours - the owners parents - are very friendly and can recommend places to visit. There is a pub at the bottom of the lane which, when open, serves a decent pint of real ale. We had planned to eat there several times but each time we went, it was closed - so don't rely on this. You are within easy reach of many places - highlights for us included Lancaster, Morecambe, Windermere, Kirkby Lonsdale, Hawes, White Scar Caves, and Dent. We plan to return”

    • “We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of March and had a fantastic time. The only thing we could find fault with was the weather! COTTAGE: the cottage was lovely and cosy. When we arrived the first thing we noticed was how clean it was (it was spotless). A welcome pack made a nice touch, containing biscuits, tea, coffee, milk, local attraction leaflets and a book of useful information. Everything was there that we needed; we took up some things ourself like foil, washing up liquid and sponges, but there was no need as the cottage had everything. There was plenty of logs for the fire (we got through more than a bucket full!) with firelighters and matches. The tv was quite small but we didn't mind as we barely watched it. The hob did take a while to get used to as it is electric (we have gas) and the temperature numbers have worn off, but when our water wasn't boiling we soon realised we had turned the nob the wrong way! Due to the weather we didn't use the garden, but it was very large with a patio area which I'm sure would be great in summer. AREA: Middleton where the cottage is based is very small (which was nice!). Fields surround the cottage and it was nice to see the lambs running around. There is a pub (the swan inn) a few minutes walk down the road. It was very quiet when we went in on a Friday night, the owner was very friendly, the food good (with large portions) and the prices good too. We drove to Kirkby Lonsdale on market day (a Thursday) expecting a large market. However there was just a few food stalls, so instead we explored the many little shops, and took a walk to Ruthins view (beautiful). We also walked along the river which was very nice. It was a lazy stroll perfect for people who don't want to trek the many hills around! Kirkby Lonsdale has a huge array of pubs to choose from, we went to the Red Dragon which did great beer battered fish and chips. Bowness on Windermere is about a 30 minute drive from the cottage. We would definitely recommend one of the boat trips to make the most of the views from the lake, although wrap up when it is cold as it was extremely windy from the middle of the lake! Again, there is a huge array of little shops in Bowness. We did want to hire bikes for the day, however we thought the price was a bit steep at about £25 each. There is loads of free parking around the main park in Bowness, although I think it is only free from October to Easter. Bowness was very busy, so I imagine in summer it gets quite crowded! We had a really fantastic few days during our stay at the cottage; it really did feel like a home from home. Although the cottage only has 11 reviews on tripadvisor, the guest book contained pages and pages of raving reviews (I can only think these people don't use tripadvisor!). We would definitely recommend this cottage!”

    • “Me and my husband stayed here for a week in November, couldn't of asked for better weather. I was quite nervous booking the cottage as we'd been away in the summer to another cottage and it wasn't very nice... i was so happy to find this cottage was everything we wanted and more. The log fire at night was brilliant and plenty of logs to keep us going. The whole cottage was really clean and well kept. Was a nice break from the washing up thanks to the dish washer. Over all a very cosy feel to the cottage and its such a nice place we didn't mind just spending time to rest in the cottage, not going out. But its good it is near to the lakes and there's a big pack of information books to help with places to go. And the welcome pack was very much appreciated. We didn't want to leave. Thanks for a great holiday.”

    • “We stayed here for a short break of 4 nights last month and had a really lovely relaxing break. It was in very peaceful surroundings, within easy reach of places we wanted to visit. We had looked at staying in the Lakes, but found that cottages were less expensive on this side of the motorway. The cottage was clean and very well equipped. In fact, there was everything we needed and I was really pleased to find tin foil in the kitchen on our first evening as I'd forgotten to pack some! It was lovely having a dishwasher too, although the view from the window made washing up much less of a chore! After seeing some cottages saying the first basket of logs were free, we couldn't believe how many logs were provided under the stairs! More than we could possibly get through, so that was really good. A welcome tray was waiting for us in the kitchen which had tea, coffee, sugar, juice, mini cheddars and really lovely biscuits with a note saying milk was in the fridge. We thought that was a lovely touch and not something you expect in self catering accommodation. There was also an extensive pack of tourist information leaflets which were good for having a look to see what else was nearby. The pack also included the booklets for the appliances which was very helpful when using a different cooker etc. Off road parking is available for 2 cars, just at the end of the terrace. We were a bit cold the first night as it took until the next evening to get to grips with the woodburner, having never used one before and we also noticed the thermostat was set quite low. After sorting both, we were cosy in the evenings for the rest of our stay. I did put something against the bottom of the front door though as we found a cold draught came in through there as a previous reviewer mentioned. The kitchen and the twin bedroom both felt a bit cold, although the duvets were nice and warm. All the rooms were a decent size. I was a bit concerned to find one bedroom up a couple of stairs from the landing to the left and the other up a couple of steps to the right in case our little boy misjudged it if he woke in the night as we still have a stair gate at home. But luckily, he was fine and got used to it straight away. I was relieved to have packed a night light for him though as it was very dark at night, something we're not used to living in a city! The bathroom has no bath, but does have a massive walk in shower and plenty of towels. It was really lovely having breakfast in the dining area, looking out over the garden watching all the birds and a squirrel each morning. The garden is really long and it was a real shame we never got to make the most of it being out until it was dark every evening. I can imagine some lovely evenings sat there in summer though as garden furniture was provided. The mobile signal was a bit hit and miss, though I got much better coverage on T-mobile than my husband did on 3, especially by the front of the house. We only used them to work out where we wanted to go for the day and find out opening times, so it wasn't much of a problem. There were quite a few dvds in the drawer under the tv which we made use of in the evenings and the cupboard had a range of games. Having a young family, we needed to be back at the cottage in the evening so it was nice these extra facilities were provided. After we left, the owners let us know that I'd left my coat and they very kindly sent it back to me, free of charge! We had a lovely time and wish we'd stayed for longer. We'd definitely go again.”

    • “We travelled with another couple for a relaxing weekend away from work. The photos of this cottage really don't do it justice - it really is lovely and really well equipped. The garden is huge, perfect for a nice glass of wine early evening! The pub down the road is okay but there are better a short drive away. Lovely welcome from the lady next door and all in all, couldn't have been better. Loved it!”

    • “Our cottage was comfortable and had all the necessities provided. Wood stove with supplied wood was a comfort during a spell of bad weather. Garden was perfect with a large lawn ideal for children without the risk of their causing damage to valued plants and thewild life attracted to the owners bird feeders was great. We were very well cared for by relatives of the owners. Abit off the beaten track. We regarded this as a plus point.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We enjoyed our stay, the cottage was very clean and well equipped the beds were very comfortable and it was a real treat to have a woodburning stove. The location is quite isolated but within easy reach of the bigger towns and villages The owners who live next door are very friendly and accomadating, while remaining unitrusive. We enjoyed our stay even though we didn't have particularly good weather. My only critisism is that the TV could have been bigger as when the weather is not that good, or if people want to stay in of an evening it would have been more enjoyable to have a full sized TV instead of a portable, (although it was 2 years ago since we stayed at the cottage and the TV may well have been updated since) pubs are nearby for good food, would recomend the cottage for a get away from it all break.”

    • “We stayed here for our familymoon (honeymoon with the kids!) and could not have chosen a better place to relive our Lake District first experience. A warm fire greeted us and we were welcomed by a truly cosy, but quality cottage. Immaculate throughout, with a liberal amount of Laura Ashley furnishing, my wife was in her element. Beautiful location, fantastic views and unlimited logs for the fire - perfect. Located close to Kirkby Lonsdale and with easy access to South Lakes, the cottage was easy to find and easier to love. I would recommend this cottage to anyone, any couple or any family. We fully expect to return to this cottage for more escapism.”

    • “Second visit, first was in 2008 and it is still in such excellent condition and wonderfully clean. The sofas were lovely and clean and comfortable, and everything is just as perfect as we remembered. The owner was very welcoming and kindly made sure we were cosy and comfortable (which we were). A perfect bolt hole for us and so nice and handy for lots of lovely walking. Even the weather didn't bother us (flood and gale warnings issued for that week) as we were tucked up safe and warm in this lovely, lovely cottage. Thank you.”

A warm, cosy cottage of high standards in both finish and content, with a much appreciated "Welcome pack." The Owners parents (who live next door) were very approachable and immediately made us feel welcome. All in all, an excellent cottage of high standards of which the owners should be proud of. Well done all & many thanks, hope to return again.”

The cottage was beautifully decorated to an extremely high standard with a contemporary by cosy feel. The wood burner was a real treat with no shortage of wood supplied by the owner. The views from the front and rear of the property were beautiful. Overall this was one of the best cottages we've stayed in for the price. Would highly recommend!”

About the location


Kirkby Lonsdale 6 miles.

Middleton is a small hamlet with a scattering of dwellings, farms and two local pubs, situated in the beautiful Lune Valley, an area of tranquillity, imposing fells and unspoilt walking country. Its nearby neighbour Kirkby Lonsdale is situated in the heart of the Lune Valley, mid way between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The town was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and holds a 13th Century Market Charter. Nowadays, Thursday is market day, a perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive shops in the town, or the many 17th and 18th Century buildings which still stand. This part of the Lune valley was a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, and was made famous by Ruskin - his "view" of the valley is still spectacular. The medieval Devil's Bridge spans the river, and the quiet country lanes are ideal for exploring by car, bike, or even horse. There are three golf courses nearby, as well as tennis, riding, fishing and a variety of riverside and country walks.
