“Gorgeous cottage fantastic location”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This cottage is brilliant for a couple, scenic location, beautifully renovated, clean and well equipped, plus there is a great pub within a couple of minutes walk and local tea rooms where you can get an amazing breakfast. We had a wonderful stay here, there are great walks from the doorstep and nearby, it is less touristy than the eastern lakes however the scenery is incredible especially Wasdale and Eskdale. St Bees head with its lovely coastal walk is also within easy reach.

The Old Post Office has been renovated to a very high standard and decorated beautifully throughout. It is also practical, for instance it has washer dryer and a heated cupboard in which to hang your waterproofs.
It is like going on holiday to your best friend's home. The location is perfect to explore the mountains around Wastwater. The grounds of the campsite run alongside the river Irt so we were able to spend a tranquil morning in the sunshine beside the river, literally a stones throw from our front door.
The Santon Bridge Inn is one minutes walk away for delicious food, and a gift shop and tea room five minutes walk away.
The coast is a six mile drive along beautiful country lanes, and a well stocked local store in Gosforth provides everything you need at a good price.
Tips:
The children's bedroom is on a mezzanine in what was the roof space, and as such there is no door so take a child gate to put up to keep them safe. There is also no blind on the velux windows up there which was no problem for our two but you may want to take two travel blackout blinds.
