Firstly, I would say that the main purpose of our trip to The Lake District was to climb Scafell Pike and the cottage is in the ideal location for this. There is a national trust car park about 15 minutes drive from the cottage. The surrounding scenery is very beautiful and when you are advised that the property is set on a working farm, this is absolutely right.

The cottage was very homely with adequate room and facilities for 4 adults and 2 young children. It boasts the original beamed ceilings (beware tall people) and was warm and cosy. I would have liked a small tray with a pint of milk etc to welcome us after our long journey but maybe I have just been spoiled in previous farm properties I've stayed at. The property could have been restored a little more sympathetically I thought and the decor more tailored to the farm house style, all a bit tired looking. I felt it could have been cleaned a little more thoroughly (especially the microwave and fridge/ freezer...

The kitchen is fully equipped with all mod cons, including separate hob/oven, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer. Also in the downstairs shower room there was a washing machine/tumble dryer for the use of guests. The cottage also has sky television and access to free wifi.

The farm is set in 250 acres+ of woodland with some beautiful walks and approx 10-15 minutes walk into the village of Gosforth for shops, pubs etc. A great location also for Wastwater Lake, Eskdale Valley and the...
