Interaction with guests
On your day of arrival you can check in any time after 2.30pm. A code will be sent to you in the week prior to your arrival to enable you to access the key from a secure box located by the front door to the cottage. We leave a welcome tray with as much tea and coffee as you can drink to refresh you from your journey and will pop round after your arrival to check you have settled in. There is a folder full of information about the cottage and local amenities, restaurants, places to visit, maps to guide you around Cumbria, and a box of leaflets about visitor attractions, boat and train rides, outdoor activities, and much more. We also live in the village so are on hand for any queries or help required.

Loved the Coach House, plenty of room for 3 adults, 2 teenagers and a large boisterous labrador. The property was immaculately clean, very well equipped, even down to coffee, tea, sugar, cling film and kitchen roll! Washing machine and dishwasher made life much easier too....More
