  • "The property was exactly as described."

    We had the site to ourselves as the other van wasn’t occupied whilst we were there, but as the vans looked away from each other even if there had been someone else staying it would still have felt private. The views from the property were amazing, and the furniture was exceptionally comfortable, just what was need after a day on the fells. I’d highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a quiet stay in the northern Lakes.

    The caravan is very comfortable and well equipped. Shame it hasn't got a washing machine but we managed. We were made to feel welcome as were our 2 dogs. very peaceful location with walks from the doorstep. Wonderful.

  • "A very pleasant and well maintained caravan."

    An exellant location for walking and exploring the upper lake district.. Whenever we had queries about the property, the owners of the caravan were most helpful.

  • "We enjoyed a week of mixed weather with our 2 dogs."

    We loved walking the dogs around the fishing lakes close by. The owners were friendly & during the week provided potatoes, eggs & gooseberries from their farm. There is a TV but reception was limited to only the BBC channels. There were no games, jigsaws or books to enjoy on wet mornings. A small welcome pack of essentials eg. milk would have been appreciated.

  • "No internet for two of the days."

    No lamps for evening ambiance. Floors were not cleaned. No relaxing comfortable furniture on outside decking making it unpleasant to relax on the sunny days/evenings.TV small which did not provide many viewing options due to no internet. Our hosts were very nice and pleasant so please use these comments as us trying to be helpful rather than critical.
