Beautiful house in great location. Bedrooms were just beautiful.
Great welcome but It would of been useful to have had all the info that was given on arrival in a welcome booklet to refer to
The kitchen could have had a better selection of serving dishes etc for 25.
But we lived our stay thank you

Hello Davina, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It's a gem of a cottage, isn't it? The location is hard to beat. Thank you also for your feedback, I will look into this further. I'm thrilled you had a great stay and I hope you will plan a return visit to the beautiful Lakes very soon.

Lovely cottage, high standard of rooms, excellent setting.Really enjoyed our stay. Only small grumble that rooms were a little on the cool side.

Great property which is far larger than we anticipated. Plenty of room for a big group and a variety of bedrooms. Loads of room in the living room with a tv / dvds. Dinning room was perfect size to eat together. Kitchen is on the small size but functional, 1 large fridge, 1 large freezer & two ovens. Bit of a traffic jam trying to cook whilst people milled in an out to get drinks so the drinks fridge in the dinning room certainly helped but I'd recommend setting up a few ice buckets, there was one provided! Excellent for the price and for what we wanted, beautiful large garden space which would be perfect for a summer bbq / families with children. Cockermouth in close distance and plenty of nice places to eat, managed to get taxis there and back on Saturday night which was a relief though you need to book early! Also went to Buttermere lake which is just magical and really close to the property. Would definitely recommend this property for a low cost weekend away in a beautiful part of the country. Owner very friendly and offered advice on nearby walks and attractions. Could do with some basic amenities to be provided such as tea, coffee, milk, salt, pepper and vinegar. Very limited supply of dishwasher tablets, toilet roll etc so I'd recommend bringing the basics with you as only the house is provided. We didn't mind as you get what you pay for. Overall a successful weekend away celebrating my 30th birthday, thank you!

Hi Faye, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your break and your special birthday celebrations. It's the perfect place to get away from it all isn't it? And the location is stunning, I'm glad you enjoyed exploring. Buttermere is breathtaking isn't it?
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
