“Comfortable home from home cottage”
Reviewed October 5, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a wonderful stay in the Manse Cottage for a three night break.
Everything we could possibly need was included in the cottage and the kitchen was well equipped. We ate in apart from one night, and enjoyed the peace and seclusion that the Manse offered despite being in a village.
The beds were very comfortable and there was ample room for myself and the three other adult relatives who also stayed.
We would definitely love to return again in the future as we loved the little pub across the way as well. It's called the Punch Bowl and is run by Locals as a collective. It serves excellent, well kept real ales and has a lovely convivial atmosphere.
We could easily have stayed longer in the Manse Cottage, and hopefully in the future we will!

Thank you to the owners for offering this lovely place to weary folk such as us, as a place to unwind and to collect our thoughts.

Yvonne, Rob, Eileen and Hilary

“Cosy, comfortable, well equipped cottage”
Reviewed June 21, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a lovely week in this comfortable, well equipped cottage. Thoughtful touches and good quality furnishings made it feel like a real home. It was well placed to visit the Lakes and the books on local walks were very useful. Located in a pleasant village where everyone was very friendly. There was a well stocked village store within a few minutes walk and a community pub over the road.

“A comfortable, well equipped cottage.”
Reviewed May 13, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This was a good place to stay whilst visiting a family member who lives in Cockermouth. A well equipped cottage within easy reach of the coast and western lakes.
A good selection of dvds.

“Great find in a very convenient location....”
Reviewed March 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We were visiting family in Cockermouth and chanced on this cottage 5mins drive away. Has all the facilities you will need for a few days vacation. One double bedroom and one twin bedroom so is ideal for a family or two couples. Everything is very clean and there are full instructions on site for hi-fi, DVD player, washing machine, heating etc, etc. Room for 1 car to park next to the cottage, and on road parking is easy for a second vehicle. Looking forward to our next visit. Recommended.

“Very warm and cosy well equipped cottage.”
Reviewed March 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at the Manse Cottage for a short break at the beginning of March. The cottage provides everything you need, lots of crockery, cutlery, towels etc. and is very clean and comfortable. The location is ideal for visiting the North Lakes and lots of places of interest in the area. We will certainly be returning.

“A Great Find”
Reviewed February 8, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I stayed here during February 2016 whilst visiting family in the area. The Manse was a great find. Located just minutes from all the main West Cumbrian towns, this cosy little cottage is not only well equipped and cosy but also excellent value for money. I visit the area regulalry and have to say this is one of the best cottages that I have found. I will be visiting again for sure and would highly recommend to others.

We enjoyed our week visiting relatives in Cockermouth and walking. The cottage was thoughtfully equipped and was warm and comfortable during an extremely wet week. Ideally situated for The Western Lakes. We look forward to our next visit in better weather.
