  • "Lovely cottage with great walks from the door."

    Good kitchen, upstairs a bit tired in places but adds to charm. Would be crowded if fully occupied- particularly in sitting room.

    Could you be more specific in your comments about the upstairs.?We do try very hard to keep everything freshly decorated, in good repair and as up to date as possible without losing character. There’s not much we can do about the size of the sitting room I’m afraid! Property Owner

  • "A lovely spacious property, perfect for a stay in Borrowdale."

    Kitchen facilities are great and the fridge freezer is a generous size. It was disappointing that there were no toilet rolls in any of the bathrooms and a trip to Keswick was necessary. Only 2 dishwasher tablets were left. Had we been aware of the need to bring these items , time could have been saved. Otherwise this was a great place to stay and we would like to rebook.

    I’m sorry to hear that- it’s most unusual and shouldn’t have happened. Glad you liked the cottage though and will return. If you have any other problems please contact the agents at once and between us we will get it sorted. Property Owner

The first double rests on the ground floor, with close proximity to the ground-floor shower room, whilst the second double has its own en-suite, resting upstairs; a delightful twin and single bedroom can also be found here, serviced by a bathroom.

Awaken to a fresh coffee whilst gazing outward across the national park, with the sound of the nearby stream trickling by, before reaching Rosthwaite to stock up on the essentials and to dine out.

The area is peppered with beauty spots to explore, with the breath-taking landscape of Galleny Force Waterfall worth a visit, whilst avid hikers and mountain climbers will relish in the chance to summit the likes of Dale Head, Glaramara, and the Great Gable.
