“Beautiful cottage and very attentive owner”
Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

We stayed in Hall Farm Cottage,wonderfully homely and well equipped. Cottage was very clean and bed and bathroom great. The owner Alison, couldn't have be more helpful, nothing was too much for her, always happy to help with maps for walks or to make a reservation at the Pub.A great place to stay when exploring the Lakes District. Excellent value, a great find.

Stayed May 2012, traveled as a couple

Yet another stay at Bassenthwaite took 3 young children on their first holiday, they loved letting the ducks out . The brooke was lots of fun wellies on feeding the ducks,swings next to the brooke kept them well entertained. The pub is small stroll up the street , the beer was very good but the food was a touch on the bland side. Children are welcome but one evening we waited nearly 1 hour for food to be served. At Puddle Duck Cottages Mrs Trafford has the cottages lovely and always with a warm smile.

Cottages are in the Bassenthwaite village which is small with a picturesque stream running through it. It has a pub called the Sun which has local beers and serves food. Dogs are allowed into the public bar. Serving staff are friendly and will hold a conservation with you. The village does not have a shop.
The cottage accommodation was very good. It consisted of a kitchen, large public room, two good size upstair bedrooms and bathroom. Beds were very comfortable and it is very quiet at night. Parking is in the farm courtyard right outside your cottage. The cottage was very clean, has a flat screen tv and digital tele. Has storage heating which is included in your holiday rent as well as a fire with coals and logs - very warm cottage. Electricity for lights, cooking, fridge, dish washer and tv is supplied via a £1 coin meter which does NOTeat up your money.. DOGS ARE ALLOWED. Child friendly with play area beside shallow stream. The Indian Runner ducks live on the farm and parade up and down to the stream all day - great sight for the kids. Fresh ducks eggs are always available for breakfast and taste great.. Owners are very pleasant and helpful people. We will go back - our dogs loved the stream.
