We got everything we wanted from this cottage.
The spec is very high. Beautifully finished and looks great.
The cottage is located at the end of a country road which makes it even more idillic.
There's no phone signal at the cottage (which we loved!) but whenever you go on walks and gain a little height you can achieve 4G signal.
Coniston Water is a pleasant stroll away. We walked to Sunny Bank Jetty on Coniston water. It was peaceful and beautiful.
Mid week we took a break from walking and had a tourist day around Lake Windermere which was only 40 mins drive a way. We took a boat tour of the lake (with the dog who went for free) for £10 each and lasted 70 mins. Well worth it.
The hot tub is deep and always hot! It's in a secluded corner so the wind doesn't really hit you. However the the comparison between the cold air and the 40 degree hot tub is lovely.
Inside the cottage you'll find everything you'll need to cook. I cooked a Christmas dinner for two, and there was plenty of pots and pans etc. There's also wine glasses, champagne flutes, long and short tumblers and tea and coffee cups.
The oven is great and was immaculately clean.
There was wood available for the log burner and even though the cottage was not cold (even without the underfloor heating it wasn't cold, but lovely to wake up to), the sound of the cracklings logs made the experience even nicer.
The bathroom was clean and modern with plenty of towels and his and hers robes for the hot tub.
The bath also has jets for bubbles in it however we always opted for the outdoor version!
The shower is large, and clean with a huge shower head that makes you never want to get out!
We ventured down to the local pub The Wilsons Arms a few times. The staff and locals are very friendly and the food was great.
We really cannot fault the cottage. We had a great week and will most likely book for next Christmas too.
