“Great wee holiday!”
Reviewed July 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Went down here with a few friends and had a great time! A short drive away from the nearest supermarket and near all the things we wanted to do. Place was really clean and the decor was really cute and homey. Also the shower was amazing which was an added bonus! Would love to know where it was from! Would definitely come back here and could not recommend enough! We only met the people who owned it once briefly but they were super polite and friendly!
Only thing was there was no wifi but that wasn't a problem as we weren't expecting any but thought it was worth noting incase you expect some. :)

Thanks for the great review and super-pleased you had a good time. I can't honestly remember where the shower was from, might have been plumb center but it's definitely a power shower :-)

This was a lovely little cottage, well equipped and comfortable.

The owner welcomed our three dogs and the fresh eggs were a nice touch!

What a wonderful little place to stay. Tucked away in beautiful countryside. Absolutely ideal for trips into the heart of the Lake District. The kids loved looking for the hens each morning. A lovely warm welcome from the owners and would definitely look to stay there again.

“Beautiful Little Lakes Cottage”
Reviewed January 5, 2016 for a stay in December 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Just back from a lovely stay at this lakes hideaway over new year with our little girl. The cottage is very well equipped and has everything needed to enjoy a home from home break way in the lakes. Our little girl loved chasing the chickens, sorry collecting eggs in the morning. Lesley the owners was very helpful prior to arriving with directions and local info and very welcoming on arrival. Would definitely recommend to both couples and small families as a great base to explore the lakes and north Yorkshire dales. Will hopefully return again soon..

“Cosy, relaxing retreat”
Reviewed December 28, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Lovely cute property with all the basics you need for a couple of nights.
Clean and tidy and lots of helpful information about the local area.
Owners very welcoming, made sure we were comfortable - also a lovely surprise to get a bottle of mulled wine as a little Christmas gift.
Great value for money and would definitely recommend for a couple or small family wanting a quiet country retreat.

“cosy retreat”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Enjoyed our stay, well equipt, a bit disappointed that i had to introduce myself to the owners the day after we arrived, otherwise i dont think i would have seen them at all all bank holiday wknd, but dont let this put you off, from what i read in the comment book, other people staying were well looked after. But otherwise very comfortable, four adults and one dog, nice break!
