    • “They had thought of everything and we really enjoyed the bacon for our breakfast the first morning. Brilliant location and even better that dogs are allowed. A perfect walking holiday.”

    • “A Walker's Haven”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A comfortable, well equipped cottage, with plenty of space, but the most important thing is the location. If you are a walker it simply doesn't get any better. Great circular walks from the door, and the reasonably frequent bus services mean linear expeditions over to Langdale, Thirlmere, Lorton, or Whinlatter are all possible. The cottage has an enclosed garden, which is unusual in the lakes, but really useful if you have dogs.”

    Mrs Hassall, Dunstable, August 2015

    • “The cottage was in a lovely location, very tranquil and relaxing with mountains all around. An ideal base for walking from. The cottage itself was splendid - like a home from home - very comfortable, warm and cosy. It was very well equipped. The dog enjoyed it too, and dogs are allowed in the local Riverside Bar which does really good food. Thoroughly enjoyed our time in The Lake District.”

    Mrs Illing, Stockton-on-Tees, December 2014
