- The cottage was in a good location for the places we wanted to get to (Penrith, Carlisle, Corbridge, North Lakes) and the interior was beautiful. We loved the lounge area, which was all glass (with optional blinds of course!) overlooking a pretty garden full of birds.
Some may not like the non-opening windows in the bedroom or the limited storage space (this is a very compact cottage), but it was fine for us. We don't cook on holiday but those who do should check what is provided, as it seemed limited.
We didn't find a pub near enough to walk to (and many places were closed Mon/Tues) but enjoyed the Fox & Pheasant at Armathwaite, only a few minutes drive away. Carlisle has some very good restaurants.
This wasn't the best equipped cottage we have ever had (no bath mat, clock or tumblers that I could see, and few cleaning products/equipment) but I'm sure if we had asked they would have been provided (and who wants to clean on holiday!)
We didn't see much of the owners but they seemed nice, and their friendly and very funny dog did visit daily for games :-)

Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it?
I'm glad you enjoyed some good meals out, it's always good to let someone else do the cooking for a change, you are on holiday after all!
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
