Guest Reviews


    • “We didn't want to leave. I have already recommended this cottage and will continue to do so. The location of the cottage and the views were superb. The cottage itself was a total delight. The crockery, utensils and towels were all great we didn't want for anything. The beds were very comfortable. The welcome from the owner was lovely when I spoke with her on the phone before setting off.”

    Mrs Mead, Basildon, June 2014

    • “The minute we walked in we felt relaxed and at home. The cottage has been really beautifully done up in every room; from the colour of the walls to the duvets and sofas. We enjoyed relaxing with the wood burner in the evenings, as did our dog. It was beautifully secluded and it was lovely to just see the coast as the sun went down. Nice walks straight from the cottage. We'll come again.”

    Mrs Hooper, Ilkley, April 2014

    • “Loved the whole feel about the cottage. Virtually everything was just perfect, and we had an absolutely wonderful time. Would definitely go back as it is an amazing place. A Mary Poppins cottage; practically perfect in every way.”

    Mrs Marjoram, Solihull, November 2013

About the location


Eskdale 2 miles; Gosforth 5 miles; Seascale 7 miles.

The small hamlet of Santon Bridge sits amongst beautiful Lakeland countryside and consists of a scattering of cottages, some farm dwellings, a tea room and gift shop and a traditional English pub serving good food. An area relatively unknown to many Lakeland visitors, this great location boasts a skyline dominated by the towering peaks of Scafell - England's highest peak, as well as Great Gable, Hard Knott, Harter Fell and Muncaster Fell, whilst the nearby stunning valleys of Eskdale, Wasdale and Dunnerdale provide breathtaking and ever-changing scenery to be enjoyed throughout the year. Local attractions include Muncaster Castle, the World Owl Centre and the Ravenglass to Eskdale miniature railway, one of the most beautiful train journeys imaginable. With both beautiful Wastwater - the deepest lake in the country and St Olaf's - the smallest church amongst the many well known landmarks in this awe inspiring and beautiful area also within easy reach, this stunning location will have visitors returning time and time again.
