    • “Great cottage with loads of character”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Stayed here in late May 2015 through work with my family and we loved it. Lovely little place with bags and bags of character. Charming little village with everything you need to enjoy a peaceful stay. Free wifi and large kitchen and an open fire. Stella was lovely and we the 3 nights we stayed flew by. Wish I had brought my road bike to do some cycling. Best bit was the beach about 10 mins walk up the road. Excellent. Well recommended.”

    • “The Photos Show It Well”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Middle Kellet is a cottage built in 1751 (as evidenced by the writing in the plaster above the kitchen window), and wears its charm well. The kitchen is outfitted with all one might need-cooking items, etc. Hot water is abundant, and the beds are comfortable. The best aspect of the cottage, however, is the owners who live in back. They were incredibly kind and generous with their produce and advice when asked for recommendations. It felt as though we made lifelong friends. I'd love to go back.”

    • “We had a lovely week at this cottage. The cottage had everything we needed, it was nice and warm and in a quiet location. The garden was enclosed which was excellent for our children to play safely in. Although it did take a while to get to some of the lakes from this location it was nice to be away from the crowds.”
