Five of us have just returned from a long weekend at this cottage and we had a great time. The cottage is lovely and a great size. Large kitchen is ideal for entertaining with a cosy living room to chill in. The cottage provided everything we needed for our stay. The location is perfect for exploring the lakes. We enjoyed pizzas from fat flour on the Friday night when we arrived and a lovely dinner at the engine inn on Saturday night. The weather was lovely when we visited so we were able to spend a lot of our time in the enclosed garden which my wee dog enjoyed. All in all a great stay and would definitely stay again. Thank you.
Lovely cottage , much bigger than I expected . Fantastic dog walks nearby , the fire made it really nice in the evening . Kitchen included everything you could need to cook a nice meal . Fast wi fi and the bakery was excellent for fresh rolls etc in the morning . Very good stables a few miles away at Bigland Equine centre

Just got home from a 4-night stay in this beautiful cottage. Never written a review on trip advisor before but had to with this place as it was truly beautiful. We’ve already been recommending to friends and family as a perfect base for visiting the rest of the lakes.
The cottage, and in particular the kitchen, were really well equipped which was great because I love cooking. Also got to mention local bakery, Fat Flour, delicious! We made several visits!
We had our 7-month old cockapoo Walter with us too who spent many an hour snuggled up in front of the fire, after long days spent exploring during our walks. The walk to Cartmel through the woods - approx 2 miles either way - and a day spent at Haverigg beach I think were his personal highlights during our stay.
Thank you for an amazing visit.
We stayed in this super cottage for two weeks and really enjoyed everything it has to offer. Lovely and clean, really good quality beds and bedding so had a excellent nights sleep and always felt well rested. Everything you need in a cottage for the whole of your stay was provided and the kitchen is really spacious so very enjoyable to cook those lovely meals you never seem to get the time to do in your busy life.
The fact that it is pet friendly made it even better for us and it is so well situated to visit so many places, and lovely to have a warm and welcoming cottage to come back to after a busy day exploring. Will definitely be back as even after two weeks still didn't manage to see everything we wanted.
We stayed at Bridgelands for a week in May and experienced both rain and sunshine.
On arrival the house lights were on which was a nice welcome and there was fresh milk in the fridge.
The kitchen diner is ideal for a larger family such as ourselves and we made us of both the table and the breakfast counter. We also used the high chair and we ate outside a few times.
The house was clean, tidy and smelled fresh and the bathroom was smart, compact but totally manageable.
There is a handy part of tiled floor by the front door so you can get wet gear off before going on the carpet.
Sitting room is on the snug side but still fitted us fine for occasional TV watching in the evening. Comfy though and fire if you want to use it.
Bedrooms nice - master bedroom very comfy and relaxing (nicer than my bedroom at home!!) but I did bang my head a couple of times on the beams! Not a negative as such - just something to be mindful of :)
The village is lovely - there is an artisan bakery which does the most delicious pizzas on a Thurs, Fri and Sat (I think??) night and they are very reasonable at £5!
The shop is well stocked with the basics.
Our favourite part was the train station as it was clean, had regular trains even on a Sunday and was a lovely journey into Ulverston which is a must visit town if you like Laurel and Hardy (also has a lovely park and walk up to a monument which you can follow with delicious ice cream). The train station is a 5 min walk from the house.
There is also a small play park in the village.
We didn't do a lot in the surrounding area as we were using it as a base for the Lake's but there was a handy folder with lots of info for local walks etc.
Owner friendly and helpful and quick with communication - deposit refunded promptly though Pay Pal took an extra week to process it (worth remembering if you are counting on it for something!).
Would certainly return!
