  • "The Cottage in the hill is a lovely place to stay."

    There are local walks from the cottage and places to visit in the western lakes area. Beautiful decorative touches make staying in a pleasure after short or long days out. Mike and Toni made us so welcome in their "Happy Place". The cottage courtyard is private, perfect for meals outside and the hot tub.

  • "Cottage in the hill was more than was described, it was beautiful, every thing you could ever wish for."

    our hosts couldn't do enough for us, the information book was very informative. our only comment would be is to warn guests of the steps, my husband is semi disabled and struggled with those, although our host did help us with our luggage.

  • "We had such a lovely stay at Cottage in the hill."

    Lovely interior, comfortable and private. You are a little distance from the main sights but we really enjoyed climbing the local black Coombe and taking a trip to wast water. Thank you for a lovely stay - which was made better by the beautiful brownies and relaxing hot tub! Would 100% recommend.

  • "We have just returned from a weeks honeymoon at cottage in the hill."

    We have had the best time. The cottage was done to a high standard. We loved the welcome treats so thoughtful and a personal touch by the owners. We will definitely be returning and I will be recommending. We drove out most days to visit different places and then would finish the day in the hot tub! I would recommend visiting Cartmel it was a beautiful little village and Chesters by the river for a lovely walk.

  • "The Cottage in The Hill was a perfect honeymoon getaway for me and my partner."

    Although we had to drive to visit major attractions and local villages if wishing to eat out, the location was ideal for us. It was peaceful and surrounded by both beautiful coastline and dramatic mountains. The cottage itself was extremely well kept and of very high standard with extra comforts such as under floor heating throughout, a log burner, SMART TV and a jacuzzi. Homemade brownies were left on arrival as well other goodies made on the local farm. The owners were fantastic, being at hand instantly with any issues/questions.

  • "Some lovely welcome touches were greatly appreciated after a long journey from Cornwall."

    Beautifully appointed cottage with everything you need and more - a real home from home. Close to lovely beaches and great base to explore the wider area. Don’t be put off by having to park on the road - it is only an access road to other homes, not the main road - only 30’ from cottage gate, with plenty of room to park.
