  • "Although the cottage is nice and in an excellent position it is poor value for money."

    It seems to be priced for six when only four could stay comfortably. The sofa bed in the conservatory area is effected by no curtains across the main large window. In the reviews comments have been made for improvements which don’t seem to have been carried out. No welcome pack, no games, no books, perhaps this is covid related!!

  • "A beautiful clean bungalow we had a wet week but it didn’t stop us having a lovely time with my sister and her husband and 2 dogs it was my husband’s 60 th birthday when we were there so had a nice place to enjoy it ."

    Thank you we would go back there again.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    Very comfortable accommodation. Handy for local shops, pubs and restaurants, all within walking distance.

  • "A very well equipped property in a lovely quiet location."

    Plenty of room for four of us and a dog who enjoyed the dog friendly garden.

  • "My husband and I have been holidaying in the UK for over 40 years with many stays in self-catering and this is the very best property we have ever stayed in."

    It was beautifully presented both in terms of facilities, decor and cleanliness. The position was perfect for us and we hope to re-book another year. I have written in the Guest Book just two comments: a nest of tables in the lounge is needed and bedside lamps on both sides would have made the cottage perfect! Thank you.

  • "Thanks for a lovely stay, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!"

    The house was perfect for us, warm, clean, comfortable, spacious and well-appointed. The enclosed garden was great for the dogs and off road parking for two cars also appreciated. The owner was also very responsive and helpful when we got in touch over some minor weather damage to the house - it was very windy last week in the Lakes!! The only additional thing we could think of to add would be an outside tap for sorting the dogs out when coming back from a walk. Otherwise - perfect! Thanks very much!

  • "We had the best time at this lovely cottage in a surreal village surrounded by hills."

    The cottage itself was spacious, clean and beautifully done up. Our evenings were mostly spent at home in the cosy living room. It’s also located perfectly, close to basic amenities, cafes and shops. We’d love to come back one day.

  • "This is a lovely place to stay, with care taken to ensure it is as comfortable as possible."

    We had two dogs with us so we made sure we had covers for the floors when they came in from walks and the garden. An outside tap would be really useful for wet and muddy clothes, boots and dogs.

  • "The property was excellent and very well appointed."

    Clean, tidy and overall the pictures on the website didn’t do it justice. A lot bigger than expected with a well appointed kitchen and two good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. Nothing negative to say about the property and would have rebooked for next year had it not been for the huge price increase- which I am confused about?

  • "Stayed in some fantastic properties over the years but this one was right up there with the best, exceptional."

    Just one thing that I would like you to comment on please is the cost of the property at the same time next year was double what we paid for our stay????don’t mind a price increase but double thank you...please comment .... Just to confirm that this does in no way reflect on the property or location in any way as this was a fantastic week away

  • "The cottage was great, we loved it."

    I think the only small thing was that it wasn’t made clear in the description that the fire wasn’t real. This didn’t spoil the holiday but would’ve been nice. Maybe replace the mugs as a couple of them were cracked. We loved everything about it and would return in a heartbeat

  • "This cottage is exactly as it is described."

    It is in a great location with the most beautiful backdrop. We stayed as a family of 4 with 2 dogs and there was plenty of room for everyone. The only suggestion I could make would be a radio in the kitchen maybe.

    Unfortunately it poured with rain most days but at least we had somewhere very comfortable to stay in to watch films and play card games.

    So conveniently located and so many walks and tea shops from front door. Really thankful for happy holiday there.
