“A charming and stylish cottage.”
Reviewed February 16, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Toddles cottage was an absolute haven of tranquility, we had a wonderful Christmas there. We had everything we needed for cooking and entertaining. The welcome package was extremely generous, coffee, cheese, Christmas crackers, biscuits, pudding and my favourite, the famous "Penrith Fudge" The cottage is brilliantly well stocked, toiletries, cleaning products, foil, binbags teas and coffee. The bedrooms were elegantly styled, spotlessly clean and comfortable with plenty of room. Our two teenage children, were in heaven, big comfortable beds and their own TV. A highlight was attending the Christingle service, in the village church. It really was a lovely Christmas. Thank you very much. We will be back.

Thank you Jo so much for taking the time to post this review. We have tried to provide everything so you only have to bring the essentials. At christmas and new year we love to make it extra special with a few more treats as well as a real tree and decorations. It would be lovely to see you all again and glad we made your Christmas extra special. Joanne .

Thankyou so much for taking the time to post this great review. It really is helpful for future guests to read and decide if it is for them. We thought it especially important to decorate for Christmas and it is all these little things I feel make the difference and somewhere special. Lovely to meet you all and hope you enjoy the rest of your time in the UK. Joanne

“Lovely getaway”
Reviewed October 2, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Lovely place to stay and relax, nice décor, good attention to detail. We often travel visiting rental cottages, nice to see all the basic cleaning items are provided, saves that last minute dash for washing up liquid or toilet rolls. Cottage is quite a bit out of the way so do plan for essentials. Would happily visit again.
