“Perfect Countryside Stay!”
Reviewed May 13, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights and we really enjoyed ourselves wishing we could have stayed longer! It's perfect if you are looking for a relaxing break for a few nights as it is right in the countryside!

The cottage has everything you need for cooking, some DVD's and board games for entertainment and the 2 bikes came in handy too! One of the days we cycled too and back from Penrith which I would recommend if you have the energy! (it took around 2.5 hours each way) But it was lovely coming back to a glass of wine and the cosy wood burning stove!

I would really recommend staying here as it is great value for money and the owner Dick is really nice and helpful! Honestly perfect if you just want to spend some quality time together and hide away from city life for a bit!

“Short break”
Reviewed April 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Absolutely stunning location, remote yet not that far from other villages with amenities. Close to local tourist spots and walk, the cottage itself is charming, very comfy and felt a home from home especially with the stove. Would 100% recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing break away and will definitely return! Dick could not have been more helpful and will make your stay comfortable and enjoyable

“Ideal relaxation”
Reviewed April 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Only stayed one night here due to work commitments but enjoyed it all the same!

Ideal for a weekend trip to get away from busy cities for a peaceful and scenic area. Only noise at night is the odd sheep

Cottage isn't huge but has everything you could need for a cosy night in front of the fire! Would return.

“Outstanding Cottage, Beautiful Surroundings, Wonderful Hosts”
Reviewed April 16, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

To say this cottage is a hidden gem is an understatement!! Wether you are wanting total peace and quiet or a break to enjoy some stunning walks and landscape, this is the place for you. The cottage is beautiful and has all the amenities needed for a lovely peaceful break. Dick is a wonderful host and can help with guidance for local walks or advice for places of interest. The cottage has many leaflets and brochures to help you plan what to do and where to go.

The log fire was amazing and weather glorious. I have stayed in many cottages over the years and this is by far the best one. Location wise you are not in the hustle and bustle of an over populated tourist area, however your still only a 5/10 minute drive away from some wonderful walks and places of interest. I strongly suggest you take in the spectacular walk along the river Eden and explore `Lacys Caves` and `Long Meg` (Dick will kindly assist with location)

In summary, I would strongly recommend this beautiful little hideaway and I for sure will be a regular visitor in the future. Please seek confidence in this review as I have stayed in over 100 cottages of similar spec, however non have been to the high standards of `Thackmoor Nook` Wonderful hosts, wonderful setting I shall see you in the summer Dick. Thanks again for a brilliant stay and your kind and thoughtful suggestions.
