  • "Property is a good location to explore the lakes."

    Beach only 20 min drive. Pub next door friendly and fun. Unfortunately some minor things were; there was no soap at all in the property, no bin bags for the bins. The curtains in the bedrooms are so thin and therefore once light unable to sleep. We also had to clean the fridge on arrival as was not clean. The beds were comfortable and bedding clean and we enjoyed our stay and would return as for the price of a 2 night stay it was as expected. Definitely go to pub next door. Many thanks

  • "Lovely warm cottage, which, from previous experience, is the most important thing!"

    Comfortable bed and good quality bedding. Could do with a few more bits in the kitchen eg fried egg spatula, peeler, knives sharpened and bowls and more storage in the smaller bedroom. The little freezer was an unexpected bonus! Unfortunately some previous guests clearly weren't very good at washing up. Settees could do with cushions for us shorties, but that's probably down to covid. However, having spent a week in another cottage which had more facilities than needed, but was always cold, the constant hot water and comfortable temperature of the cottage makes up for any shortcomings after a day of walking!

  • "Had a fantastic stay with my partner and our friends."

    The cottage had everything needed for a lovely weekend stay including festive decorations, good cooking facilities and 2 nice bedrooms. The location of the house and the pub was fantastic and it was peaceful enough for a relax but also in good driving distance to some really pretty places around the Lake District.

  • "The property was exactly as described."

    It was clean and had all the basic essentials included. The property and it fittings are a little tired but still perfectly functional and comfortable. We stayed with family who also rented number 1. The weather wasn’t kind to us for the latter parts of the week but the smart television, books and games helped to pass the time on a wet afternoon. We visited the pub next door for food one evening and the food was very tasty and reasonably priced. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay.

  • "A fantastic and relaxing holiday in a lovely comfortable cottage."

    The food from the pub next door was great, and the fact that you could get takeaway made it so easy. The cottage had everything we needed, and the enclosed area for the dogs makes things easy. We would definitely come back.

  • "The property was not very clean, the oven was disappointing, food remnants in the bottom of the oven, the glass door was brown with baked on grime."

    High dusting had not been done in quite sometime. The cutlery draw was minus forks, this was sorted by the owner straight away, the point is basic checks are not been done. The cottage was a little tired on the inside.

  • "On the whole great little location ,the cottage was great for what we needed however there was alot of flys you can put this down to being near farm land ."

    However I feel they need to invest in a fly trap as this was a bit of a problem.

  • "There were a few minor issues with the property - handle not attached to the wardrobe cupboard in the big bedroom, fridge was not working on arrival but this was sorted when we spoke to the owner."

    The property was clean and comfortable but is situated on a busy, fast main road and, if you are a light sleeper, is not ideal. It is also fairly remote, you will have to travel to visit any sights. Having said that it is an ideal base for exploring the Lake District. The pub next door does exceptionally good food and the staff are very welcoming and friendly.

  • "The property is on the A590 right next to fast traffic, and therefore quite noisy, so having windows open on the road elevation is not advised."

    The property is nice enough but needs a bit of an upgrade. Carpets looking worn, fridge not very cold, and also surprisingly noisy Overall its OK for the money, and it's handy for the Western lakes and coast.

  • "The cottage was lovely and as expected from the details provided."

    It was comfortable, clean and good size for husband and myself plus our dogs although it could easily accommodate 4 too. TV reception was good (freesat), iron and ironing board available, washing machine if required, small worktop freezer was useful. Pub next door was lovely, good food, good ale and very friendly, no noise from there at all. The road outside was fine it didn't bother us or keep us awake at night, although the speed limit is quite fast on that stretch so you are aware of the larger vehicles passing. If any improvements were to be made I would suggest the fridge needs to be colder (it was set at maximum cold temperature) as we felt we needed to add ice packs to it to keep food cold, and knives weren't very sharp made preparing food difficult. Wish I had also taken a sieve as there wasn't one there but as I didn't cook often it wasn't a big problem. In all we have another lovely week in the Lakes.

  • "The cottage was as described and ideally placed to explore this part of Cumbria."

    Constant hot water was a bonus as we did get wet and cold exploring the area. The road outside was busy at times, as per description, making opening a window not ideal but the fact that there where fans available if it got too warm made up for it. Food and drink from The Brown Cow excellent good value and on doorstep. Would use again if needing a base to explore from

  • "Very noisy accommodation from road outside."

    Disappointing property and thus we left early. Coupled with the noisy road which meant it difficult to sleep - there are no windows downstairs that open which made the property very hot and stuffy, no grass area outside. The property was clean, a little outdated and a has a very noisy fridge. The property would be fine for a 1 night stay but NOT suitable for a week stay. The pub next door was fantastic. Very friendly and good food.

  • "A lovely comfortable cottage, the bed in the front room was very comfortable."

    The cottage was well equipped, great fridge, great little seperate freezer. (need ice tray cubes though) The only problem was the smell of foist from the downstairs toilet. Very bad. But it didnt deter from the cottage. The pub being right next door was great, very friendly, a great pint. The food was incredible. Lots of walks right on the doorstep. A short drive into Cockermouth for the day. Would stay again and reccommend to friends who like walking.

    But to be fair the weather didn't help with plenty of rain. To explore the area safely we would need to drive. The railway was OK but again it was very wet and windy. The scenery is spectacular and in good weather it would be much more conducive to explore and find different walks.

  • "The cottage was warm and cosy but there were little touches missing."

    For example I couldn't get hot water on the first night and there were no instructions for how to operate the boiler. I had to open it and figure it out. Likewise the hob and cooker had no instructions and the switch for the cooker was hidden behind the microwave. A little info booklet would be a welcome addition I think just telling you where to find things and how to operate them. Also finishing niceties like additional hand towels for the bathrooms. We ended up using the ones supplied but if we'd had 4 adults as the cottage can support we wouldn't have had spare towels to use. Otherwise the cottage is comfortable and well furnished. The main road at the front is busy and a national speed limit so if you're bringing dogs or young children make sure the drive gates are secure before letting them out but it's a good base for exploring the area

    Although slightly isolated with regard to local shops many of the places of interest are not far away. Muncaster Castle and the Ravensglass and Eskdale railway are very close by. The cottage is attached to the Brown Cow pub. Here you can unwind with a real ale and enjoy some very good homemade meals with friendly hosts. Our dogs were exhausted after lots of lovely walks. Highly recommended.

    There is no shower, which again would be a great addition, as well as saving the owners a lot of money in fuel bills. Also, a DVD player for the evenings and wet days would be a good facility. Overall, a comfortable, warm and cozy cottage, with the Brown Cow Inn just next door. It is well placed for tourist attractions, within the Lake District.
