“A lovely setting and spacious, clean cottage”

The cottage is situated on a farm with views to the open countryside. It was lovely and clean and very spacious for the 8 of us. The kitchen is well stocked and the open plan living room has plenty of space, with a separate mezzanine level for those who want a bit of peace. The beds were comfy and there was plenty of hot water for everyone. It took about 10 mins to get into Kendal for a bit of shopping and there were plenty of pubs etc a short drive away.

“Brilliant even in bad weather”
Reviewed October 22, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

M6 closed so we went the !ong way round and still found it in the pouring rain and it is an amazing property so well equipped with views that will be even more spectacular without the mist and rain. We intend going back again.

“Great for a large group, in a beautiful quiet setting”

Easy to find from the m6. Great location with stunning views.
Spotlessly clean, furnished and decorated to a good standard. All the kitchen facilities you would expect at home, plenty of crockery and all towels and bed linen provided.
Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Ideal for us as a group of 6 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs, we all had our own space and plenty of sitting areas.
The views really are the selling point. It was lovely to have breakfast outside and spend our evenings chilling watching the sunset. We will most definitely return. The pictures don't do it justice! Thanks for a lovely weekend.
