Wonderful location with views over the lake to Skiddaw. Great to have a cottage with four good sized bedrooms all with their own bathroom. House has been renovated to a high standard. Boys loved the table tennis table in the attractive garden. We enjoyed being able to stroll to the Pheasant Inn for a drink after a hard days walking. Our hosts left Read moreus an amazing welcome gift and were friendly and welcoming. Would stay again which is the biggest compliment. Hide

What a way to start 2024. From the start of our stay, we were welcomed with a lovely hamper full of all sorts of food and drink. The house had everything we could have wanted, great facilities, great location - with lots to do in the local area or within a short drive. Our hosts were so considerate. We really couldn't ask for more.
