    My husband and I stayed at Fernleigh cottage for 4 nights with our Staffordshire bull terrier, Bleu. Unfortunately the owners were away while we were staying, but was shown the cottage by one of the staff at the Pheasant Inn (pub run by the owners). This is a great cottage to base your stay in the Lakes District. It is a good size and well laid out inside. The living areas are well portioned and easy to move around in. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need, including a dishwasher and washing machine. The bedrooms are well sized with a double bed in each of the 2 bedrooms. Each bedroom contains a TV. The bathroom is a good size with a fantastic Jacuzzi bath. Our only issues were the busy road outside the cottage which sees a lot of traffic and we were woken up a few times by the lorries passing by. The parking was not ideal, with the parking area being shared with the neighbors. Recommend that you reverse into the parking area, because there is not enough room to turn your car around in, alternatively park in the pub car park and walk around to the cottage. The last issue is that there are no shops within a short walking distance and you do need to drive out to pick anything up you might need, but this is a small thing. Overall, we would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
