I had a fantastic time at the cottage. Great for reaching Blencathra, Ullswater and Haweswater areas on the Eastern Lakes. The shop on site sells fantastic produce, really top notch quality. All the people involved from the cleaning team, to Kath and Peter and the staff at the shop are very welcoming and friendly. Nice place to sit behind the cottage and if you go into the field above the cottage, fabulous views of the sunset behind Blencathra. The property is really comfortable with every convenience provided and Kath is very responsive if you need help with anything. I would suggest a more detailed itinerary of what is in the cottage could be useful before arrival. The bed requires special mention. After a day in the hills it is particularly comfortable for weary limbs. I hate a hard mattress! There ar no toiletries provided - this caught me out a bit - and you do need a car to get everywhere...even getting across the very busy road to the pub provided challenges as there is no footpath

Nice, we’ll equipped studio accommodation in a rural area with views of mountains. Shop & pub close by. A car is essential as you are situated just off a very busy A road with nearest bus stop at least one mile away. Could do with information regarding Wifi, refuse collection and walking in the area
