Ideal location for a short break in the lakes, we were in room 1 which was a good size, was initially a little worried as it is adjacent to pub car park but needed have worried as it was quiet, only downside you have to keep curtains shut when changing in room, great breakfast and lovely staff!

the room is decorated gracely and sweet. the location is about 7min walk from the lake and is very quiet. breakfast is excellent and you have many choices. but if you have many luggages it will be not easy to carry them upstairs.

Excellent place to stay. Graeme was very helpful. He gave a tour of the placement on entering the establishment. Shirley makes her own biscuits which you can sample in your room. Pets are welcome. This is 1 of those mini breaks that i will be taking quite frequently. Cannot pick fault at all. Big breakfast are also on offer.

Graeme was an outstanding host and worked hard to make sure everything was just right. The room had character with a four poster bed. The only reason to hesitate on Virginia Cottage is if you have trouble... More

The room was like walking into my dream bedroom - it was absolutely beautiful. Comfy sofa and bed and a gorgeous bathroom. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is superb. If I get an offer again, I would love to go back.
