    “Quiet and well placed”

    Nice cottage in a quiet location. We normally go for modern properties with a hot tub, but due to Covid had to have a late booking. The decor is a bit dated in some of the rooms, but the cottage has plenty of room and everything you need. They limit it to two occupants, pet free and no children ...

    Nice cottage in a quiet location. We normally go for modern properties with a hot tub, but due to Covid had to have a late booking. The decor is a bit dated in some of the rooms, but the cottage has plenty of room and everything you need. They limit it to two occupants, pet free and no children. You have all the facilities you need and a great location for exploring the Lake District. Probably 5 mins walk to Lake Windamere. Pleasant experience and would book again. It has a modern kitchen, which has everything you need along with a large fridge and freezer. There is a dishwasher and washer/dryer and room to dry clothes. Most things have been thought of and you dont need anything else. We had deer, a woodpecker, tits and three Buzzards out the front. There is a modern bathroom with Jacuzzi built in with an on-suit upstairs off the main bedroom. They advise not to use the shower in the wet room, but no issues with a big bathroom downstairs. We just used the toilet and sink. The living room is a bit dated and could do with new table and settees, but still comfy and had Netflix provided. You really do not need anything else. Maybe a hot tub outside as these are becoming more popular, but this is a personal thing and would have been great to unwind looking at all the wild life. Owners live next door and seem friendly. You have off road parking in a safe area. Probably about 40 mins drive to Keswick/Blencathra, 25 mins to Helvellyn and 80 mins to Scaffel Pike, so ideal location if hiking is your thing.
