  • "We had such a brilliant stay at Little Winder, the cottage was perfect for us and our little dog."

    We enjoyed walks from the door step, (Including Athur’s Pike and Bonscale Pike) watched the red squirrels playing in the trees from the window and slept peacefully after days of hiking. The location and views from the cottages was superb. The cottage itself has a good sized entrance hall to take off your walking gear and a shared drying room next door to hang anything wet out on the heaters. The Amazon TV was great and we just logged into our Netflix in the evening or watched the free view channels from the comfy sofa. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook tea each night, there isn’t a freezer on its own just a small compartment in the fridge but we only needed ice so no issue for us. The bed was big and comfortable, the shower was compact but lovely and powerful and hot. There was a secure dog field to let the dog off the lead and have a good play. The hosts were brilliant, made sure we had everything we needed and left us a welcome gift which was such a nice touch. We would definitely stay again.

    Thank you Siobhan for taking the time to review Little Winder, we are pleased you had a great stay and enjoyed exploring the walks from the doorstep. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future to carry on exploring . Property Owner
