  • "This was our second Christmas in your lovely cottage and it did not disappoint."

    We looked forward to it all year and had a super week. The balance between traditional and modern within the property is spot on and we love the open plan living- especially on Christmas Day when the children were playing and we were cooking. It’s in a perfect location for walking to nearby Bowness, a short drive to Ambleside and there are some lovely National Trust locations nearby too. We can also recommend the Crafty Baa and Angel Inn for food and drinks and The Magic Wok Chinese take away. Thank you for another fab week! The Myers family

    Dear Rebecca, we are thrilled you have enjoyed yet another family Christmas at Little Herdwick. We are very grateful for your kind and very helpful feedback. We love to hear about what you enjoy about the property and are always looking at ways to improve our guest’s experience. Thank you for all your support and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Wishing you and you family all the very best for the new year, Andrea and Mark. Property Owner

    Excellent location. This was our second stay and we will return. Only feedback is that the bedroom blinds are not that effective at blocking light. This may not be an issue for most people and it did not bother us as it was November when we stayed. Little Herdwick is a delightful place to stay and we will return

    Dear Janet, lovely to see you return to Little Herdwick and we hope you had a nice stay. It’s a real pleasure to see guests return year after year. We note your comments regarding the bedroom blinds and this is something we have had little concern over , however we do provide complimentary eye masks for anyone who needs them. We will consider curtains when we next refurbish our rooms , but are always mindful to not spoil the contemporary look. We appreciate your feed back. Thanks Andrea & Mark Property Owner

    Extremely clean and a lovely touch with the welcome pack provided. To comment on the parking, we only struggled on the day of arrival as we didn’t arrive till 9pm, but found permit parking a short walk round the corner, there is also a big car park a short walk away that does overnight parking for £1. We didn’t struggle the rest of the week at all! We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future!

    What an absolutely beautiful and tastefully decorated home. I personally have OCD and I think it's the first holiday home I have been to that has not triggered my OCD, and believe me, that is a major tick in the box. The attention to every little detail throughout the house is exceptional. Everywhere we turned there were little apt references to sheep, which tickled our sense of humour, like the salt and pepper shakers, slate wall plaques in the back garden, little sheep on the beds with "please leave me for the next visitors to enjoy" tags, dangly legged sheep ornaments in the bathroom to name but a few. Every inch of the cottage was spotlessly clean. Every facility and accessory had been carefully thought out. The beds were adorned with lovely cotton bedding and the comfort of the mattresses and pillows had us wakening up feeling totally refreshed. We honestly could not find anything negative that we would pass on to the next visitors. Please pass on to the owners our immense gratitude for letting us stay in their beautiful home. the welcome basket was very much appreciated and we look forward to staying again in the near future.

    The location is perfect. The property is beautifully decorated and everything in it was very tasteful. We’d definitely recommend the property to our friends and family as a perfect place to stay. Our only negative observation (not criticism) is the bathroom. We felt it would benefit from removing the bath and installing a walk in shower along the back wall after relocating the towel rail. That done the bathroom would have more room in which to move the washbasin and toilet. The toilet seat didn’t fit and the space was a tad on the tight side for comfort.
