Great cottage, we had a fantastic time - phenomenal walks and awesome scenery. Plenty to do and see and given the cottage is located where it is, it was lovely and quiet, great to get away from all of the normal hustle and bustle.

Please see above. I cannot fault the house at all. Done beautifully and so comfortable. Plenty of bathrooms and toilets. It was just very hard to find and quite far from anywhere. I organized a lot before we left. Which Im pleased about because I wouldnt have been able to use the internet whilst there. Some scary roads. A map would have been usefulRead more. My walking app didnt work as no gps so I was too nervous to go for a walk Incase we got lost. Going in the river was lovely. Hide

Lovely spacious cottage, very well equipped to a high standard. Fabulous location with lots of walks from the doorstep. Amazing views from the top of Harter Fell. It is remote though and a bit of a drive to anywhere, so be prepared.
