“Very clean and cosy cottage in a quiet little village.”
Within very reasonable distances of other villages and the main Lake District itself. We really enjoyed our stay as we were looking for a quiet getaway for a few days and this was certainly it.

Within very reasonable distances of other villages and the main Lake District itself. We really enjoyed our stay as we were looking for a quiet getaway for a few days and this was certainly it. We tried a couple of the pub recommendations in the info provided, and were pleasantly surprised at the value and quality. The main bed was comfortable and spacious, and the living area upstairs is clean, comfortable and has ample facilities. The only slight criticism I would have is the shower never got hotter than lukewarm even when the water in the taps was really hot. We tried adjusting the temp controls etc but nothing did the trick. Overall I would definitely recommend a stay here if you’re looking for a quiet few days away.- Mr Blair, December 2019
“A lovely clean and comfortable cottage.”
Well located for exploring the Dale's, Pennines and Lakes. As others have noted, it would however benefit from an additional mirror outside of the bathroom!- Mrs Levene, September 2019
“Cottage was clean , and was well equipped for a holiday the washer dryer is in the conservatory area down stairs .”
It is an easy drive from the a66 and easy to find .- Mr Holmes, August 2019
“We found the cottage hard to find - perhaps a bigger sign on the gate would help.”
And it would be very useful for the cottage to have a small freezer for ice cubes/frozen food - there is room for a small worktop freezer in the kitchen next to the kettle. It would also be useful to have oven proof dishes to heat/cook food in the oven. A DVD player and a hairdryer would also be welcome additions.- Mrs Huckstep, June 2019
“Some little things to make it more helpful.”
There is only one mirror in the bathroom we could do with another mirror in the sitting room for people to do there hair,where there is a electric socket for hair dryer.Also a chopping board for cutting salad etc ,and place mates and coasters.- Mr Freebody, June 2019
“I stayed at Whitehall cottage when on a gliding holiday at Eden Soaring.”
The cottage had everything I could have wanted for self catering and the view towards the Lake District to assess the coming weather was unrestricted. I would recommend to others and would stay again.- Mr Coker, May 2019
“This property does have a washing machine and this should be mentioned in advertising.”- Mr Hill, May 2019
“Beautiful little cottage, in a lovely quiet little village we went with the intention of getting away from busy every day life and just relaxing this was the perfect location for this, The cottage was well equipped with a lovely little kitchen area, full of pots, pans and utensils there was also a selection of tea coffe sugar milk and biscuits.”
(recommend taking oven gloves as there wasn't any). The bedrooms were comfortable there was plenty of towels, Washer/dryer was a bonus especially when realising when you arrive your younger one had only packed t shirts and no jogging bottoms- Miss Rustage, May 2019
“Very comfortable accomodation in the lovely hamlet of Blencarn.”
The perfect spot to get away from the rat race and explore the beauties of the Cambrian countryside.- Mr Addis, April 2019
“Lovely cottage in stunning countryside, perfect for relaxing, walking and cycling.”- Mr Robson, April 2019
“The cottage is well appointed and with a good view from the upstairs lounge.”
Getting round the double bed is a little tight (in the dark - its a rural setting!) Once the issues with the hot water and heating are resolved, it is an ideal cottage for 2-3 wanting to explore Penrith, Carlisle and the northern Lakes- Dr Cox, April 2019
“The cottage was very well kept, one little issue was that there had been a few weeks of rubbish left in two full bins this was not helpful as they were full and not pleasant to deal with this was or should have been seen.”
Prior to our visit.- Mr Ullyott, March 2019
“I don’t think the pictures did it justice!”- Miss Broadbent, December 2018

“Ideally situated for visiting the Lakes,Pennies and Dales, any problems were quickly sorted the same day by owner,A very enjoyable weeks stay.”- Mr Ashfield, October 2018
“It was a comfortable, well-equipped property and made a good base for a course I was doing in Penrith.”
Lovely drive through the countryside but probably not the property for people who need shops and other facilities nearby.- Ms Dunne, October 2018
“The only slight issues were the lack of bins in the bedrooms and a shaver point in the bathroom other than the cottage was excellent.”- Mr Ripley, September 2018
“No. all was good.”- Mr Bulfield, September 2018
“The property was mainly very good & met our expectations.”
We had a lovely holiday. General feedback would be there are no instructions in the property on how to control the heating so we spent more than half our time there rather cold, we did report it however & a maintainsnce man came promptly. There were no instructions for the tv neither so it was difficult to work out after the channels went off, we googled it though & found the answer ourselves. The single bedroom has a very fusty smell about it and despite our very best attempts the smell would not go away sadly.Another minor point but rather troublesome when we had a small child was a very creaky bathroom door which proved tricky overnight. Overall we had a lovely stay.- Mrs Orme, July 2018
“Loved the cottage .”
great for walking cycling etc . Nice & peaceful. True rural setting . Secluded shared garden . Would recommend staying there .- Mrs Curry, May 2018
“Very nice cottage - good pre-visit instructions from owner - enjoyed our stay.”- Mr Everett, September 2017
“Lovely little cottage with everything needed for a great week away in a very peaceful and rural area.”
We had a great stay and used it as a base for exploring the surrounding areas, including the Lake District and Newcastle. The location is quite remote and there are no shops in the village, which I think was the only thing we missed as we are used to the big city, but of course it is great to get away from everything! I would recommend this place for a relaxing stay and if you are looking for an escape from the busy city! As someone who enjoys cooking, the kitchen is very nice in particular, as is the garden, although a little smaller than we expected.- Miss Davison, July 2017
