The cottage is in an excellent position for walking and relaxing. However, we stayed here a number of years ago and not a lot has changed. Kitchen is poor and dated, not a lot of storage space for food, in the plate cupboard there were airfresheners. There is no dishwasher even though there is space for one, this would have made a great difference. Not a lot of hot water, the seating although clean has not changed since our last visit. The tv works but would be better placed in the rear lounge. The new addition of a power shower helped. Still a great location though.

Hello Paul, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. You couldn't have picked a better location for exploring the beautiful Lakes and getting out and about on some great walks! I really appreciate your feedback and will make sure everything you have highlighted is looked into and addressed. I hope you will plan a return visit to the Lakes very soon.

spacious and comfortable cottage, in the middle of nowhere, which is what we wanted, (hence 'poor' score for local amenities. dry, warm, cosy and great location. only hing to suggest is to supply some decent knives for chopping-the ones there are so blunt they are dangerous.

Hi Alex, very many thanks for your comments, I'll flag the knives issue with the owners. I'm delighted to hear you had such a lovely time. Here's to getting away from it all more often!

Amazing setting in the heart of the Borrowdale Valley. We have stayed before at the Cottage and appreciate it is an older property. However areas of the kitchen (3 cupboards) are damp, smell and are not fit for purpose. Furniture downstairs is basic and feels dated. Bedrooms and the large bathroom are comfortable and the shower is very good. The water tank empties after a third of a bath is run which is frustrating. Washing machine very useful and washing line are helpful given nature of outdoor holiday. The large parking space for our car was also great. Outside space is great but again let down by inadequate seating for a family consisting of a small, rusty iron patio bistro set. Lack of benches, seating means the garden is not used as it should be to take in the amazing views. The weather was great for the whole week which meant we could take maximum advantage of the great location and despite the cottage shortcomings had a fantastic break.
