This was an fabulous holiday. The setting was simply outstanding and the house was perfectly adequate, It was immaculately presented and perfectly clean when we arrived. The house was a little dated and I do think there needed to be a washing machine (more important that a dish washer in my opinion) since the lakes are often wet and muddy. As there was no internet or phone reception in the house, some more specific instructions in case of emergencies might be appropriate. All in all, we had a magical week. The best thing was that we could go for any number of beautiful walks right from the doorstep!

Hi Robert, glad to hear you had such a wonderful holiday. Thank you for your other comments, I promise I will investigate further. How amazing that you got out on so many walks too - here's to lots more fun in the fells!

Great central location for walking mountain bike riding and swimming in the river. A nice cottage with grass for the children to play on in a safe off road garden. Only downside was pots and fry pans for cooking were too small and some with scratched Teflon. I’ll stay again but next time I’m bringing my own.

No Wi-Fi - which we did know before we went. Could do we some bigger pans and a larger casserole dish. Also there was no tea, coffee or even a pinch of salt - would be good to have a few very basic provisions. Most importantly Margaret, the owner passed away in January but is still the contact name and number that was sent out. Fortunately we didn’t need to make contact. Generally the place is a bit old fashioned but this was clear from the pictures so not an issue for us.
