Previous visitors' comments about Lakeview:
This cottage was of a very high standard. It was clean and tidy and well looked after. The location was good for attractions in the area and we ate in some of the local pubs which catered for children. The beds were all comfortable and the house was very quiet at night time, so we all slept well. The kids loved to play in the garden and use the swings etc. that were included.

Very peaceful - and with a full party of 8 we found the location to be excellent.
