  • "We had a really relaxed time."

    Thank you so much. The location is perfect,- quiet and very beautiful amidst fields and near a farmhouse/cafe/butchers. Not far from Bowness, Ambleside and other great spots The cottage is very cosy and homely - only few issues regarding cleanliness-sticky dinner table, dirty high chair( underside of the table was disgusting) and the oven had not been cleaned.
