Hi Arooj, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it? And the fabulous weather was the icing on the cake! I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

Amazing location and a very well-equipped and clean house with great views from the 2 x master bedrooms and a lovely outside eating area - if you are lucky enough to have the weather! Lots of walks from the front door up the hills in Newlands valley, and only a short drive to Keswick, Borrowdale and Buttermere so plenty of things to do. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable with fully-working showers etc. The kitchen / dining area was also clean and had everything you would need in good working order, plus there was a utility room with full laundry facilities (the people in Birkrigg Cottage next-door have access to this utility room too but that wasn't a problem for us - however it wasn't mentioned on Sally's website and some people might not be happy with this situation). Our only disappointment was the sitting room furniture and decor - the sofas were not very comfortable or inviting - at the end of a long hard day's walking I didn't really look forward to sitting down there. If the sitting room was updated the house would be perfect. Friendly owners next-door.

Hi Judith, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, it's a lovely place to escape from the hustle and bustle for a while isn't it? The location is stunning, just perfect if you enjoy getting out on the fells.
I really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for improvement. I've passed these on to the owner, and they confirmed that the sitting room is next on the list for a revamp, so hopefully this should all be a fresh new look if you come for another break at Birkrigg!
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

Had a fantastic time. Karen was lovely and welcoming. The cottage had everything we needed. It was lovely and warm and very comfortable, and in a perfect spot for walking. Would definitely like to go back. Thank you Karen.
