  • "This is our second visit to Old Peat Cottage."

    It was as thoroughly enjoyable as our last visit. It is a very cosy cottage and even though it is a old stone building, it was always nice and warm. Again, the cottage was well equipped with everything you would need and the decor was beautiful. The bed is extremely comfy with good firm pillows. It was a delight to bring my dog Bill back again and so pleased that our 6 month old puppy, Poppy got to experience such a wonderful accommodation and the Lake District for her first holiday! We hope to return again.

  • "What a lovely cosy cottage."

    Beautifully decorated and well equipped. Just the perfect size for 2 people and two Border Collies. Good location, close to lots of the tourist attractions but at the same time hid away in the peaceful countryside. Sadly only a short time after we came home one of our border collies, Nell passed away but my husband and I were just delighted that her last holiday was spent in your beautiful cottage and in the Lake District. We hope to return again very soon.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback. I’m very pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to see you again Property Owner

  • "Left a day early."

    The cottage was cold and damp . When we got home we could still smell the damp on our clothes. The shower room was tiny and no heating in the room , so never used the shower while we stayed there. Would not recommended this cottage.At 55 years old one of the worst cottages we have stayed in .
