  • "Nice cottage in rural Crook with added bonus of The Sun Inn a minute walk from the cottage, which serves amazing food."

    Main supermarkets are 6 miles away in Kendal. Not really far to drive to visit all the Lake District has to offer. Scenery is totally stunning!

  • "During our stay the weather was poor, but the cottage with a good supply of books, CDs, DVDs and jigsaws provided a cozy haven from the storm!"

    The location is handy for lots of interesting places around Lake Windermere and the close proximity of the Sun Inn with its good food was an added bonus.
