“I sampled the smaller cottage Gable View, i was on my own, so space was more than adequate, if 2 are staying and your hound is big, you might be tripping over each other.”
Bedroom was nice and cosy (keep window closed at night, as farm cockerel will wake you) didnt hear it after 3rd night... Lake district air does wonders for sleep.
Lounge/kitchenette/diner more than passable even for a 2 week stay, my own personal points are TV not pick up the bulk of freeview channels, so choice of viewing a tad limited, wifi is there, but i took my own, also took a google chromecast with me.... Which proved a boon as TV is not internet type. Only other minor gripe is the sofa, really could do with a new firmer support model, although cushions available, i used pillows as extra back support and comfort.
At time of visit stuff around me not fully open, but hey theres still good walks to be had, views from front are stunning.... Just still a bit too chilly to spend time sitting outside.
Hosts are friendly and welcoming and regularly asked if needed anything else, if you get talking to Michael.... Very interesting character, we even had a connection to Keswick, Borrowdale where i worked in a hotel back in the day.
You have a petrol station with a well stocked fairly large Spar shop 2 mins drive 10mins walk
Directions to farm are given, but did i read... No so went slightly wrong way not far from farm, if you use the app what 3 words and use "Drawn. Change. Shepherds. That will take you to front door.
I recommend a train journey along the west coast from Ravenglass, the line hugs the coast like a lizard.... And marvel at the properties that are built practically on the beaches along that coast, i travelled north, but you can travel south as well and go across another estuary at Arnside (involves a change of train) depending on your time of visit to Arnside... You might catch a tidal bore coming in.
On the whole a nice relaxing holiday, which is what its about really.... Will be back, just dont know when.
