  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Lower Carhullan."

    The cottage is lovely, clean, very well equipped and comfortable. The location is perfect for relaxing and for walking - we loved being remote, and the scenery is utterly breathtaking. We even saw a group of Fell ponies close to the cottage!

  • "We stayed in the cottage for a week in April."

    Absolutely loved it. So quiet and peaceful. I have always wanted to cook on an Aga and loved the ease and the way the food tasted. The cottage is extremely well equipped and a good size. Couldn't fault it. Thank you

    Thank you so much for the positive feedback. So pleased you enjoyed yourselves x Property Owner

    Place was lovely would be good to have some kids items to play ie swing slide outdoors we had to use the chairs to stop the baby touching the agar and stop him going up the stairs and even though views may be spoilt a fixed pergola or similar over hot tub to protect it a bit in winter months would be ideal

    Thank you for your comments, glad you enjoyed your break. There is a fireguard in the property (in the store cupboard) for use with the fire, Aga or as a temporary stairgate. Unfortunately an outside pergola is not allowed by the planners in this area, we would love to have one for the winter months. We provide a high chair and travel cot but guests are more than welcome to bring additional equipment. Our online brochure details equipment provided for guests, a link is sent direct to guests prior to their visit. Many thanks for the feedback. Property Owner

  • "We all had a fantastic stay at the cottage."

    Couldn’t fault the cottage and it’s facilities, or the owner who was very attentive and helpful. The whole places has a real quality feel to it and has been refurbished to the highest standards. The cottage is quite remote so I would recommend taking everything you need in terms of food and drink as the main supermarkets are 20 mins away.

  • "Fantastic accommodation ."

    . everything you could possibility need during your stay has been thought of. Views from cottage spectacular and well worth getting up early to catch the morning sunrise and beautiful skies. Thank you to the owners for providing a welcome hamper... you will need to ensure you have food to tide you over until you get to the shops which is a wee drive away. Overall a wonderful experience and certainly would not hesitate in returning.

    If you are looking for a remote getaway with lots of walking options at you doorstep to explore the northern lakes then this is for you. Weather was not our friend but we had a great time all the same at Lower Carhullan cottage and would happily return.

    Thank you for the feedback. Maybe return in better weather. Property Owner

    The process was easy and we found the nicest holiday house we’ve ever stayed in. The facilities were excellent and the location simply stunning.

  • "The Cottage was wonderful - a really great standard and very comfortable with absolutely everything we could ever need!"

    Would highly recommend it and are thinking of booking again the next time we journey to the Lakes! A tip for future renters as the cottage is in a beautiful area and is very remote we would recommend to purchase your food before you arrive. However, one small point which was not clear in the description - the cottage is finally accessed via an unmade track which is fine for an SUV but is a little difficult in Winter in an ordinary car and certainly not recommended in Winter for a Sporting car....!
