We stayed here in November and it was fantastic. We had a large group with 8 couples and 7 kids and the accommodation was ideal. With a group this size it was so nice everyone got a good sized double room with ensuite, so no one got the raw end of the deal. The living and dining areas were great,... More

Gorgeous accomodation with underfloor heating, 10 bedroom all ensuite-tour on arrival with all amenities. Amazing views from nack of the cottage. Plenty of parking-we had 5 cars for family of 23 for 7days. Owners were very helpful-would definitly recommend it.

Stopping us from giving it a 5 star review were: the kitchen was small and lacked equipment needed for serious catering, no towels were included in the... More

I stayed in stable one, the bed was lovely and the shower was brilliant. Otherwise everything was very basic in the room, nothing special although the view was lovely. Breakfast was good, service friendly, location was convenient; 5minute drive to cockermouth and easy drive to several lakes. No internet access!! Also the bathroom was poorly ventilated so was always damp,... More
