“Fab Farmhouse, dog friendly in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed January 24, 2016 for a stay in September 2015

You have private access to the lake -- perfect for the dog in particular. Great furnishings and lovely setting. We especially enjoyed the fireplace every night. The dog loved the walkies out the front door and in general it was a fab location to enjoy the Lake District. Highlight of our trip.

“Perfect Lakeside rental”
Reviewed January 2, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We were here the week between Christmas and New Year and loved the cosy cottage and walks from the door. Coniston shore is a stone's throw away and there are many other walks/bike rides where you can leave the car at home. Coniston (and the Old Man walk) and Grasmere (with many circular walks from the centre) were a short drive away and kept us all occupied for the week. The local pubs were lovely and the Black Bull Inn in Coniston was a great stop with children and dog for good food and roaring fires. The cottage itself is well equipped and there are lots of books and games, even a piano. The woodburning stove was a delight as was the complete and utter peace, quiet and total darkness of night time - best sleep we've had for ages. A great spot for a winter break but we'll definitely be back one summer to take advantage of the proximity of the lake for some wild swimming or kayaking,

“A really lovely little cottage.”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had an amazing week at the cottage. Very clean and kept very nice with a lovely private garden down to the Lake. Plus the weather was sunny everyday, we could not of wished for anything better. Just peaceful and beautiful. We will be back.

“Relaxing break away in a cosy cottage”
Reviewed September 10, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at this cosy Farmhouse. It was clean and spacious with access to a private beach overlooking Coniston water - perfect for relaxing in the evenings with a BBQ. It is set in a good location and is about a 5 mile walk to the Bluebird cafe (along the water-front) where we hired a boat. There was no mobile phone connection at the cottage (although there is a landline phone for emergency use) but for us, it was nice to get away from norm for a while.

“Super Place by the lake”
Reviewed July 27, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a lovely week fell walking, kayaking on the lake and relaxing. The cottage is a good base and is well equipt, clean and comfortable. Dogs are allowed. We didn't take a dog, but the lounge does smell a bit 'doggy'. It's not unpleasant just a faint doggy smell. But if you don't mind that the place is difficult to fault. The local pub in Torver was very agreeable with tasty food.

Management Response
Jul 28, 2015
Thank you for taking the time to review our cottage. It's always lovely to hear when guests have enjoyed their holiday at The Farmhouse.
You certainly managed to make the most of what the area has to offer with your fell walks, kayaking and last but not least, important relaxation time!
However, we are sorry that you were able to sense a 'doggy smell' downstairs. As we accept dogs in to the cottage which is largely carpeted, this has always the potential to be a slight issue for owners that choose to bring dogs. The carpets are professionally cleaned regularly but we are now looking in to getting wooden or flag stone floors fitted downstairs as this will be more practical for guests who do bring dogs.
Thank you once again for your review.

“A quiet and tranquil holiday”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Quaint old fashioned home with all mod cons. Tea, coffee, sugar, milk and a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. Well away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. Stroll to the lake, down the lane or through the woods--bliss. Only thing to be wary of is if you are tall mind your head on the front door and upstairs loo. Will definitely come again.

“A beautiful cottage exceeding all expectations”
Reviewed March 23, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My wife and I took the in-laws for a weekend treat. The cottage was well equipped with everything you needed and more. It was cosy, exceptionally clean, well maintained and the location was second to none. A short drive to either coniston or ulverston, which gives you the choice to eat out or just stay in and enjoy the home comforts. Home comforts consisted of games,book's and DVDs to keep all occupied, and the kitchen was so well equipped even Jamie Oliver would of been in his element.
