Forresters cottage is lovely. It is very well equipped (the only thing we couldn't find was a pizza cutter!), and the location, for us was wonderful. The garden was very handy, as we had our dog with us, and he also seemed to love the cottage...especially the log burner!
We ate out a few times at the Coledale inn ( the pub nearest the cottage won't allow dogs in when food is being served). This was a really nice pub, and the food was 'okay'. Very friendly and welcoming though, which counts for a lot!
There are lots of lovely walks within easy reach of the cottage, and the cottage is easy to find, only a couple of minutes from the A66.
The bed was a little too soft for our liking, with a bit of a 'roll together' going on. However the bed linen was lovely - good quality cotton, which was lovely and cool at night.
Sadly we had to leave earlier than planned, but would have loved to have spent the full week there.

Hi Ros, I'm delighted to hear that you had such a wonderful stay, and so sorry you had to dash away early. You really can't beat a cosy evening around the log burner, can you? Come back and see us again soon!

A wonderful break in a beautiful, homely cottage. The village is lovely with some fantastic places for a meal and/or drink. The village shop is perfect for supplies during your stay. The location is also brilliant for exploring lots of the Lake District. Would love to visit again!

Hello Lorna, I'm delighted you had a wonderful break in the fabulous Forester's cottage. Sounds like you enjoyed some delicious meals dining out! You couldn't have picked a better location for exploring the beautiful Lakes. I very much hope you will plan a return visit very soon.

Lovely cottage in a quiet location. Comfortable sofas. Brilliant shower and bath. Excellent large enclosed rear garden for dogs and children. Fridge too small for 6 people but it's only a minor quibble. Also a few lightweight garden chairs that us elderly folk could take and sit in the garden would be good. Highly recommended.
