The Old Joiner's Shop was an absolute pleasure to stay at. 5 of us stayed for a week. We had planned lots of activities, hiking and exploring the local area and mountains. The location was perfectly situated within short driving distance of everywhere we wanted to visit. The house comfortably fit 5 of us and we spent almost all of our down-time enjoying the lovely conservatory and decking area outside. Everything made us feel very much at home and Diana (the owner) was very accommodating and helpful in all of my correspondence to her.

The only slight negative I would have to give is that the local village shop isn't quite sufficient for everything we needed so we had to drive a small way for certain things we needed and to do our main food shop for the week, but it was perfectly adequate for top up items such as bread, milk and local foods. The local pubs are also excellent (namely Brook House Inn).

We had a wonderful week though and we highly recommend the Old Joiner's Shop to anyone who wished to spend a week walking and exploring the mountainous side of the Lake District.

Oliver, Thank you for your review. I'm thrilled you all had a delightful stay - it's a fantastic cottage isn't it? Sounds like you all had a great week hiking and exploring - you couldn't have picked a better location! The owner is lovely and really does go above and beyond to ensure guests have a memorable holiday. I hope you will all return to the Lakes very soon for your next adventure.

We had a lovely time in a very spacious cottage. The kitchen was well equipped. We loved sitting in the comfortable conservatory and playing in the games room. The area was a great base for outdoors activities including cycling and hiking. It was also a perfect cottage for a dog and absolutely no problem that he was not allowed upstairs.
