  • "Lovely, spacious cottage with beautiful, dog safe garden."

    Spotlessly clean and really friendly, helpful hosts next door. Great location for beaches and Lake District National Park. Would definitely recommend staying here and hope to visit again in the future. Thank you for a great week.

    Spacious, beautiful decor with everything you would ever need whilst away. Amazing views across the estuary and a great garden for the kids and dog to run around in. We wouldn’t hesitate to come back. Angie and Guy were really friendly and provided a brilliant welcome basket of goodies, even taking into account our sons dairy intolerance.

    A real home away from home. The host Angela was so helpful and kind. She provided a high chair and lovely wooden cot for baby, some hand wash and some lovely treats for dogs (and poo bags). We had young children so it was lovely to walk from the house through the small hamlet of 'The Green'. We said hello to all the animals- horses and spring lambs and then watched the train go by at the walkover crossing. Soft play and swimming a 30 ish min drive away. Lovely, thank you.

    So homely and comfortable Situated well for trips out into the lake district. Cosy kitchen, vast lounge area and 3 great bedrooms, the master is huge, also ensuite, with amazing views across the hills and surrounding area. Beautiful large bathroom with shower and bath. There is everything to hand including guides and leaflets and local maps. The owners are lovely and friendly and nothing is too much bother. Kitchen and lounge both have wood burners, which makes it that bit more special. I would definitely have another break at Cherry Tree cottage.

    We had a minor issue with the shower but I’m sure it was user error. When both showers where on occasionally one shower would stop working but other that perfect Home away from home. The owners being so close by was handy as well being from the city, we’re not overly familiar with open fires… there’s definitely an art to it. The owners provided a full suite of activities to keep us occupied and we didn’t stop all week. Thankyou!

We spent lovely days out at Windermere and the Ravenglass and Eskdale railway, along with numerous walks and cycle trails.

    Only having six people means you get the whole benefit of the spacious rooms and garden, with gorgeous views grin every room. A very relaxing week long holiday with the main tourist spots of the Lake District all easily visited within an hour drive. The pub down the road does great food with a lovely little park and playing field next to it where we played a family game of cricket.

  • "I've been staying in cottages for around 20 years."

    This, without a doubt is the best property that I have ever stayed in. The owners were very generous with the disposable items that they provided, i.e. toilet paper, hand wash etc... and the kitchen was one of the best I've ever seen in terms of pots, pans etc... In previous properties it's been hard to cook a meal for 4 people with what has been provided whereas here it was easy. A great array of classic video games (PS3), board and jigsaws were perfect for the rainy days and the amount of pamphlets for the local area were more than any service station I've visited. This is genuinely the first property that was rated with 5 stars that truly deserved it. In terms of the property itself, beautifully decorated, very spacious with a lovely garden and a beautiful view.

The views from the property are simply stunning and it is just so peaceful there. Our two grandchildren just love the garden and the huge space to be free to run around. There is also easy access to boating on Coniston, walks, steam train trip and a Castle to explore. There is a pub a five minute walk away with excellent food and Millom is only a 10 minute drive with cafes, pubs and a nice Italian restaurant. We had such a lovely time on both occasions and we will definitely be back. Thank you.

    Good rail links from Millom will take you up the coast or a short car journey will get you to Coniston. The roads while we were staying werent busy so we avoided the usual traffic jams associated with Grasmere or Ambleside. Hodbarrow RSPB site is just a couple of miles away by car and is an interesting coastal walk. The owners who live next door are very helpful and left a generous basket of goodies for us including Easter chocolates. They’re on hand to offer advice re places to visit. I’ve given 5 stars for cleanliness for other properties we’ve stayed in but this was literally sparkling and it’s really well equipped. The views from the huge sitting room and equally huge main bedroom were beautiful and an additional bonus. We very much enjoyed our visit.

    Amazing views, so much space inside and out, we are a family of six. The cleanliness of the property has to be mentioned, it was pristine. Cherry Tree Cottage is a ideal base, the gardens are perfect on a warmer day, so you don't need to leave. Nearby are two different beaches, one with a great play-area/ assault course and one long sandy beach. We had a couple of days out within half an hour drive, safari park etc, then further afield (within an hour) we visited Lake Windermere to have a boat trip and visit a castle. Hosts Angie and Guy are very helpful and are on hand if you need anything. All round we had a perfect stay - Thank you

    As others have said it's a beautiful cottage with fantastic views and lovely friendly hosts living next door.Angie even came round to show us how to light the fire properly as ours kept going out :-). With the house being just off a main road there are no paths to walk the dog from the house itself but the garden is big enough to let them run around which our cockapoo loved. As a base for exploring the South lakes you could not wish for a better accommodation or for more friendly hosts. We used an app called All Trails which showed us plenty of walks near by and Haverigg beach is fantastic to walk the dog as its huge when the tide goes out. We would highly recommend 1 Cherry Tree to anyone thinking of stopping in this area. Although we didn't get the weather to sit outside in the rear garden, it would be a fantastic spot on a warm night to take in those spectacular views.

    We had such a warm welcome from the owners and the house did not disappoint. The view is fantastic. There is everything you could need or want for a comfortable self catering holiday. The linen is amazing as are the showers. We were very lucky with the weather and did both beach and lake walks. A visit to Cartmel for the sweet shop alone is worth it. The local pub ‘The Punch Bowl Inn’ does fantastic food with all credit to the owner. It has a great feeling of community and the perfect way to end the day if you don’t feel like cooking. We can’t wait to go back. Didn’t want to leave.

About the location

MILLOM, CUMBRIA

Broughton-in-Furness 7.4 miles; Ambleside 23.8 miles

This small coastal town on the southern edges of the Lake District National Park frames the northern shores of the estuary leading to the River Duddon. Millom Museum offers an insight to its past, with a reconstruction of a drift mine lending a nod to its iron and steel works. There is also a statue in the town centre, commemorating the iron industry, depicting 'The Scutcher' who stopped the iron ore tubs with and iron bar and his own strength. This town was also home to writer Norman Nicholson, who has a stained glass window in St. George's Church dedicated to his memory, while the strange 'fish' window in the Holy Trinity Church is also worth a visit. Discover the remains of Millom Castle and travel to nearby Haverigg, with its Blue Flag beach, a restored lighthouse and children's adventure play areas, for the ideal family day out. Also find the 7 tonne sculpture ‘Escape to Light’ positioned near to the Haverigg Inshore Rescue station, constructed by Josefina de Vasconcellos to pay tribute to the Inshore Rescue Teams in the UK. Other attractions in the region include the South Lakes Safari Zoo, Black Combe for walks with stunning views and Sandscale Haws, a National Nature Reserve with an outstanding dune habitat supporting a plethora of wildlife. Further afield are the delightful towns and villages of the Lakes District such as Grizedale, Ambleside and Windermere, not forgetting the abundant walking and cycling opportunities in the area.
