Cosy and romantic one bedroomed cottage in beautiful countryside with lovely views across the Solway Firth to Scotland. Great walking and cycling country and close to stunning beaches.

Our second stay at the cottage was even more perfect than our last! (And that was tough expectation to beat). Chris and Christine are the most wonderful couple - friendly, inviting and conversational - they added a massive welcoming factor to our stay. As for the cottage, everything was just as beautiful and cosy as we remembered. The decor is...

Stable cottage is the perfect location for exploring the lake district... cozy, well equipped & spotlessly clean. Christine & Chris are brilliant hosts & the welcome pack included homemade bread, cake, chutney, cheese & a bottle of wine which was most welcome after a long drive! Even Holly the dog got biscuits! The bed was so comfy & everything else...

Management response:

Thanks Louise and Gary for your encouraging words. It was our pleasure to have you stay at Stable cottage for a few days. The weather wasn't too bad either, but can't ever be guaranteed up here. Thanks for leaving the cottage in such a clean condition, always much appreciated especially when we have guests arriving the same day. You will...

Having read what seemed to be endless 5 star reviews for this cottage we booked with confidence. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and Christine seemed very nice (we didn't meet Chris) however disappointment set in when I climbed the stairs and my nose was assaulted by the smell of damp walls. I know the cottage is very old...

Management response:

Thank you Julie for your review. I appreciate that you do not like mice, but as I explained to you at the time mice are a problem in this part of the countryside, I'm afraid. I will add that since you left, the mouse has been seen, in the garden, caught and removed. As for your other comments; you say...
