“River, mountains, snug stay!”
Reviewed July 4, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Just returned from a week in Oak Tree cottage for four adults aged from 30s to 80s. Booking was simple, Kevin and associates could not have made us feel more welcome when we arrived.

The cottage was very clean, simple and snug, with underfloor heating available when the wether turned cooler. The kitchen was well equipped and rapidly became the centre of the household.

The cottage is next to the river with a small garden overlooking the Lune. All of us enjoyed both short and longer walks from the cottage, which has access directly on to the Howgills, and trips to the lakes and Pennines which are easily accessible by car. The Pennines are so much less crowded than the lakes and are so very peaceful.

I was worried about the motorway and railway passing on the other side of the river but although we could hear both it wasn't a problem.

I imagine that the grandchildren would love exploring the area around the farm and there was a well equipped play area for children. They would love picnics by the river.

All in all it was a very special stay and I do recommend the cottages.

“Fabulous Cottage”

Stayed here over May bank holiday weekend - 5 of us incl kids of 12, 10 & 3.

The property is immaculate, comfy beds, plenty of cutlery, gorgeous underfloor heating. Bedrooms are good size particularly the double room and 2 bathrooms was great.

Outside the kids play area was superb and included football pitch, we also walked down along the river which was great. The windy drive down to the cottage is also great particularly with lots of lambs!

With just being off the M6 this was a great location for the lakes and although it was a wet weekend for us, returning to oak tree cottage made it wonderful.

We will definitely stay here again when visiting the lakes.

“A great base for a relaxing Lake District holiday”
Reviewed April 11, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

If you don't mind the low hum of the motorway, or the whoosh of the West Coast Mainline, then this is the ideal base in the Lake District. It's perfectly located for local walks around the fells or along the River Lune away from the general overcrowding of the Lake District itself. Equally it's just a short drive to the biggest lakes - we spent a great day at Ullswater and also visited Windermere. The property itself was clean and tidy - everything worked properly - and the owners are friendly and helpful, even offering a close-up of some of the new-born lambs!
