A wonderfully English style country cottage in a breathtaking location. All mod cons, very good WiFi. Beds very comfortable. Easy reach of cottage, Keswick, Ullswater, Penrith, Carlisle, Gretna Green. The coast just a little further, St Bees and Ravenglass worth a visit. Highly recommended.

If we could give this cottage 11/10 we would. It was perfect in every way, everything you needed was there, great location and friendly welcoming hosts. I can see why many other guests have returned over and over again. Perfect stay and will be back again.
