We stayed in the larger of the 3 cottages, "The Farmhouse", for 3 nights at the end of February. It's a bit of a drive to get to as it is on the other side of the Lake District but the views are stunning. You have the best of both worlds here... fantastic beaches such as St. Bee's within 15 minutes drive, and fantastic mountains which were topped with snow during our stay. The cottage itself is lovely. The living room is spacious and comfy with a fantastic fireplace, and the kitchen is well equipped with a dishwasher and washing machine. The bedrooms were also spacious and the beds were great. The little touches such as towel robes, soaps/shampoo/conditioner, sachets of tea/coffee/sugar, and the basket of logs were all unexpected but appreciated. The biggest selling point of this place though has to be the hot tub! The first night, it was a clear night and the stars were just magical! We didn't see that much of the owners, but whenever we did, they were very friendly. We had a fantastic time and will hopefully be back at some point soon. Thanks for a fab time!
