    “A wonderful holiday home in a remote part of the Lake District.”

    The Knittle Annex is beautiful, and felt like a cosy home from home. There are many places to visit within a 20/30 minute drive, we visited Coniston and the South Lakes Safari Park - both lovely destinations. Make sure to take plenty of food if you intend to cook, as supermarkets are quite a distance, but there are many lovely pubs within a 5/10 minute drive from the Annex that all serve food and were delicious. Thanks so much for a lovely stay.
