Lovely, spacious cottage, that is much bigger than the photos imply. Clean & tidy and well equipped with a fantastic private garden to sit out in and enjoy. If it's important to you whilst on holiday (wasn't to us) there is no Wi-Fi/internet and phone signal isn't great (O2). Not a great choice of Tv channels either. Good location for getting the tRead morerain to Carlisle or Barrow, or walking/driving down to the large, quiet unspoilt beaches and dunes. As well as having the Lake District close by. Hide

A quiet, clean and comfortable cottage. Kathleen was very generous with her time and went out of her way to help us make the most of our stay, particularly providing up-to-date information on public transport.

A lovely property, beautifully decorated, very well equipped and with lots of thoughtful touches. The village setting is very pleasant, with a huge sandy beach about 15 minutes' walk. 10 minute drive to picturesque Ravenglass, or Seascale for shopping and ice cream on the seafront. 20 minutes max to the Western lakes. Trains run through the villageRead more, nice local pub serving good food and owner's craft and coffee shop for gift shopping. Hide

Wood Cottage is a lovely clean, light and airy cottage which benefits from a country style cottage garden, full of flowers of every hue of the rainbow.
