    “Beautiful family friendly cottage”

    This has to be without doubt the most family friendly place we’ve stayed at. ...

    This has to be without doubt the most family friendly place we’ve stayed at. The hosts Martin and Joanne are very welcoming as are the beautiful farm dogs! On arrival there was a parcel of local produce including eggs, scones and jam that went down a treat. As for the accommodation it is very well placed for easy access to the Lakes and beyond, we went North, South and West during our stay with ease. The cottage is immaculately presented and very clean indeed. Every detail has been covered from an excellent wide range of pots and pans to child seats for the toilets. Our two young children (4 & 2) were well catered for with a wide range of toys and games for them to play with and all of the out door toys such as a ride along tractors, scooters and carts. Joanne was very helpful and was only to pleased to show our girls the 4 week old dairy calf’s that make up part of the farm. We enjoyed morning walks down the entrance track with Lily the puppy collie and the on site play area with slides and football was a welcome distraction whilst tea was being made. We really cannot recommend this cottage enough, we comfortably slept 4 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of living space for the party too. Internet is provided and is fast enough for the kids to access YouTube and alike. The biggest compliment I can say is that it was like a home from home and we will definitely be back!!
