The cottage is in open country side but easily accessible from the A66. Good views and walking from the front door. 2 pubs within a mile walking distance, we went to the Sportsmans Arms which was excellent. The cottage was clean and tidy - how lovely to arrive and the beds are already made up. Lots of tourist leaflets, games and books available and a decent TV. Dishwasher was a bonus I was not expecting!
Although the heating was storage heaters, so toasty in the morning and just ok in the evening (we had snow whilst we were there in April!) there was an extra heater in the main room that made it really comfortable.
Downsides? Take a loo roll as it seemed from the visitors book that they are not always provided! Beds were a bit soft and wallowy so don't go if your back is bad. Only 4 mugs so I seemed to have to wash them every time I wanted a drink!

My family and I stayed here for 4 nights and it was great. It was cosy, warm and the location was ideal. It has all the mod cons but bring a DVD player if you plan to watch films in the evening.
It is close to ulswater, Penrith and Keswick. There is a lovely pub that serves nice food nearby. We all had a great stay here, we were sad to leave and would come back.
We had a problem with the access road being closed but we called the owner who guided is in, great service
We stayed here for 1 week at the end of July and we loved it. The cottage is very clean and surrounding with beautiful views. Everything we needed was available and we had a fantastic holiday :) thank ypu very much to the owner for having us and we will hopefully be back soon
