“Unwind and recharge”
Reviewed June 25, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage was clean with easy access for the more less able and as lovely views. Our mums spent all the time in they were in the cottage sitting in the bay looking out watching the cows, sheep and local wildlife. A quiet place to be. The garden allowed us the space to play with the dogs with The Helm is within walking distance to give them a good walk and exercise them.
Yes we we return soon.

“Great Location with Wonderful Views”

Large bungalow with loveley views. You can see the sea off Morecombe Bay in the distance on one side and wonderful snow topped mountains to the other. The property itself is warm and comfortable and you will be assured of a good nights sleep in the very comfortable beds.
Property is in a great location for access to the Lakes with Windermere only a short drive away. We followed a day trip of the Lakes by car which we picked up from a contributor to Trip Advisor and the views we encountered were stunning. It was a great day out and the weather was superb. Sizergh Castle is a short trip down the lanes and we visited daily for a coffee and a short stroll with the dog before heading off for the day. Asda is a short distance away for groceries and we also came accross a Morrisons on the other side of Kendal along with a pet superstore for provisions for the dog. We also visited Appleby-in-Westmorland which is a lovely town and worth a visit. We enjoyed lovely weather for the week and even had some snow, fantastic.

We stayed here in late july with our two kids age 9 an 12, and our dog. The cottage is clean, well equipped and beautifully decorated, We have rented cottages throughout the Lake District and this is my favorite. It's well equipped with loads of space, There's plenty of parking space and the views are spectacular.It's well located for visiting nearby attractions, and we went on lovely walks from the cottage. i will be booking again for next year!

“Beautiful location for a beautiful holiday”
Reviewed September 24, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Five (two couples and one dog) travelled north in search of the fabled rugged beauty of 'the Lakes'.
After a long drive we arrived at Yaffles in the dark. It's fairly secluded (one of the things that we were looking for) and after a short voyage of discovery down a small lane we were relieved to find easy access and plenty of room for the cars.
Inside it's much bigger than it looks in the photos! Huge lounge running through into the kitchen, two bathrooms, two good sized double bedrooms, and a third large bedroom with twin singles in it. It's rustic charm and coziness made for a very comfortable stay. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you need to make meals and the coal BBQ in the garden made for a few fun nights overlooking the amazing views.
It's location is brilliant for getting out and about and enjoying all that Cumbria has to offer- we even managed to tire the dog out!
All in all a fantastic place to experience the Lake District and we will be booking again for next year.
