Bexley, Kent GB Couple
6 Forest Houses is a lovely, comfortable house in a quiet, peaceful area of the Lake District. This was our second year in succession staying in this house, and when the weather keeps you indoors, then you could do a whole lot worse than relaxing in the comfortable lounge and dining room, and well-equipped kitchen. The photos don’t really do the house justice: it’s a lot larger than it appears, and although it is in a terrace of houses, it is very quiet, and you certainly aren’t aware of any neighbours
The area is beautiful; great walks from the door into Ennerdale and up the valley or around the lake; the Fox and Hounds pub is within 100 yards, with huge portions of good pub grub when you get back from a day walking, really friendly staff, and great Cumbrian ales on hand pump. Fifty yards from the house in the other direction is the Gather, a community-run cafe, for tea, coffee, cakes, bread, milk, etc.
I’d most definitely recommend 6 Forest Houses.

Hello Robert, Thank you for your lovely feedback. I'm so pleased you have had a wonderful return visit to this gem of a cottage. You couldn't have picked a better location to kick back and relax! You just can't beat good pub grub after a day out on the fells! Here's to the next holiday in the Lakes - hope to see you soon!

Newcastle upon Tyne GB Family
A lovely cottage in a great little village, everyone we met there were very friendly, which all made for a very enjoyable week.
There are a couple of things I feel I should mention, we could not find any board games, they were mentioned on the website, we would have taken our own if we had known, and we could not find the cushions for the outside chairs, they were supposed to be in the airing cupboard upstairs.
Apart from those two minor points, which did not impact on us greatly, we could not fault the holiday.
