A lovely cosy cottage with enclosed gardens, would definitely stay again.
So many places to walk a must is Long Meg and her Daughters, stone circle a short drive away.
The village was further away than thought and although cars/tractors are not that frequent they do drive extremely fast so would not feel comfortable walking in the dark. The Crown Inn does have a takeaway facility but unfortunately the week we were there the owners were away on holiday. The Fetherston Inn has a lovely beer garden. 5 miles away is Fox and Pheasant Inn at Armathwaite, fantastic menu and well worth a visit. The lack of a shower was the only thing that could be improved, it would take an age to run a bath if 6 people were staying.

Nice quant cottage, but mind your head if your over 5ft.
Enclosed garden is lovely and peaceful.
Couches in the sitting room are very dated and uncomfortable about the only negative I have in regards to the cottage.

HI Rebecca, thank you for your comments, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay in Ona Ash - it really is a wonderfully quaint cottage, isn't it? I've made a note of your other comment so I can investigate it further for you. That garden is really lovely, isn't it? Here's to a bit more peace and quiet!

The cottage is in a lovely, peaceful location within the Eden Valley. It is well equipped with everything needed and was very clean. The cottage however had some flaws in that the door to the wood burner had been damaged by previous occupants and could not be used. The sofas were unfortunately quite uncomfortable. The bathroom is upstairs and there's an original stone spiralling staircase to traverse with a rope for a banister rail. There are several steps and low beams to manoeuvre your way through and sometimes, your head comes off worse! I'm not sure if it's possible to change the cottage interior, but a shower in the bathroom and a downstairs WC would be beneficial. I felt it was a lovely, rustic cottage, but perhaps unsuitable for the less agile.

Hi Helen, many thanks for taking the time to leave your comments, I very much appreciate it and can completely understand your frustrations over the woodburner. It really is such a peaceful location, isn't it? The Eden Valley is one of our hidden gems and I'm delighted that you had the chance to explore it.
