Lovely little cottage with amazing outlook of the hill to the rear. Top bedroom a little awkward if you are tall. Generally well equipped, but needs a hairdryer and iron (there is an ironing board, but no iron) very comfortable for 4 adults and our 2 furbabies! Close to local (very friendly) pub and 3 miles from local shop! Would definitely recommeRead morend. Hide

Potentially a nice cottage, but considerable updating is required in regard to the bathroom. The sanitary ware is old and needs replacing. The position is good as you're only a short drive to one or two nice pubs. Plenty of scenic walks nearby and if you're feeling brave, Scafell Pike is close by too!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks at Yewbarrow Cottage. The location was great - close to Wasdale and also to a fabulous beach at Drigg. However, it is right on the road - although not noisy, you'd need to be careful with dogs or small children. The cottage itself was well-equipped, cosy and comfortable, with amazing views from the end of the gardeRead moren and the top bedroom. When the DVD player gave up the ghost the owner arranged an immediate replacement. We plan to return! Hide

We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and chocolate biscuits, a very thoughtful gesture. The cottage was lovely and clean with everything we needed for our holiday. We were very lucky to have lovely hot weather so didn't need to use the log burner and the cottage was very cool inside away from the heat. It was very enjoyable to relax in the gardenRead more with beautiful views of the hills. Hide
