  • "Fantastic property, really welcoming hosts who took the time to get introduced."

    The complimentary bottle of prosecco on arrival was a lovely touch, as was popping round with scones and cake. The property is in a great location for exploring the region and the hot tub was perfect for unwinding in after our little one had gone to bed. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

    Julie had kindly baked some scones, a cake and left a bottle of bubbly as we were celebrating my husbands birthday. It was a teal treat after our long journey. Loved the hot tub.

  • "Lovely cottage in a quiet and beautiful setting, fixtures and furnishings all to very high standard."

    Lovely touches on arrival with a very warm welcome and freshly made scones with jam and cream, red velvet cake and a bottle of prosecco and water. The hot-tub was so relaxing, while sipping a glass of prosecco and watching the sheep and baby lambs in the field. We would highly recommend to family and friends looking to chill out in a fantastic cottage.

  • "Lovey cottage set in a beautiful little town."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and well laid out with washing machine, dishwasher and two bathrooms (with 2 teenagers that’s a must). Decorated to a high standard and with lots of little touches to make it feel special. We all loved the hot tub which was a really nice addition to the cottage. Hosts Julie & Geoff were amazing, with lots of advice on things to do, and some special treats when we arrived including a bottle of bubbly!! Julie also brought some delicious home made scones and cakes one of the afternoons which was a lovely touch. A short walk from the cottage, we ate twice in the local pub where they served lovely food. Highly recommend staying here, we all had a very relaxing break and would definitely go back again.

    The outdoor space and hot tub are superb, the owners are so helpful and knowledgeable with information about the local area, walks and activities. The location of the cottage gives easy access to the lakes and the countryside, this was one of the nicest cottages we have stayed in.

  • "The host really made us feel welcome."

    The cottage was beautiful and clean. I was amazed by all the attention to detail that has gone it to the cottage and hospitality. The host was fantastic throughout our stay, she was very helpful and even hand delivered fresh home made scones with clotted cream and jam which were to die for. We fully enjoyed our stay and intend to book again in the future.

  • "Coney Garth Cottage was perfect in every way for our visit to Cumbria."

    Our accommodation was spotless, well equipped and very comfortable. A bottle of Fizz, biscuits and freshly made scones awaited our arrival. The hot tub was a real luxury , particularly after a day of walking and exploring the Area around the Lake District. The cottage had it’s own car parking space , patio and patio furniture which in the afternoon was a real sun trap. It was a self catering cottage and because I do not like to shop too much whilst on holiday, I packed sufficient supplies for the week including dishwasher and washing machine tablets, dish cloth etc etc . As they say “ everything but the kitchen sink. There is a very friendly pub in Beckermet called the Royal Oak which serves delicious food . If you need to shop, Egremont is close by . We also went to Gosforth where there’s a very well equipped supermarket, a local bakery and a cafe called Yam Frae Yam which I highly recommend but as it is small , booking is recommended. All in all, we loved the cottage and do hope that we will be able to visit in the future.

  • "Just had a great week in this beautiful cottage."

    All the fixtures and fittings are top class and it really is lovely. Great base for the coast and western lakes, loads of places to visit within a 10 mile radius including Ennerdale Water, Wasdale/Wast Water, Muncaster Castle and the Ravenglass-Eskdale steam train (all highly recommended). The kitchen is well equipped if you want to cook but if you want to eat out there is a pub that does nice food in the village (the Royal Oak), doesn't do food Monday or Tuesday though and the White Mare has shut down so it's a drive to anywhere else (The Wild Olive in Gosforth, about 3-4 miles away is very nice).

    Great hosts and a well equipped clean cottage. The cottage is well located to enjoy the Western Lakes and the coast. We had a wonderful time wild swimming off St Bees Head, along the river Esk and in Wasdale. Lots of great walking too. The hot tub and scones and cake from the hosts next door was a pleasure to came back too. Also enjoyed a ride on Ratty and a visit to Muncaster castle. Loads of great pubs and cafes near by. Really enjoyed the Mill cafe for breakfast. Would highly recommend a stay here.
