An absolutely beautiful cottage in a stunning location. It was the perfect long weekend for my fiance and I, as we just wanted a few days to escape from it all, go for a swim in the lake and climb some hills. It was also my fiances birthday!

The cottage was set in a perfect location, but if you wanted to get to anywhere (nearest shop, pub, etc.), it was either a long walk on the road or a drive away. But don't this put you off!

We spent much of the time in the cottage, enjoying the luxuries of a bath in the bedroom with a lovely view, as well as sitting on the back doorstep feeding the birds. We also walked down to Lake Coniston on a couple of occasions, and went for a dip. The jetty is only a few minutes walk away.

Keen parkrunners that we are, we headed to Ford parkrun on the Saturday. This was only about 25 minutes in the car from the cottage to Ulverston. A great challenging parkrun, with a lovely group of volunteers which we would highly recommend. On the Sunday we climbed the Old Man of Coniston. Little tip: we managed to find a space on Station Road near The Sun pub, free parking. Its a great walk, and quite tough in places. Hugely rewarding - even if there isn't a view from the top!

We would highly recommend this cottage, and will likely go back in the future - once we've explored the rest of the Lakes!

Our first stay at Reflecfions and we will be back! Very easy to find but still so remote and lovely. Upon arriving we were directed to park and we were shown the apartment by the owner, we also got a peek into Ripplings (how lovely for a bigger group!). We were then left to look around the apartment on our own, and we soon realised that NO expense has been shared in this gorgeous getaway, original features have been restored, the kitchen is fully equipped and modern touches like Bluetooth speakers and Netflix access was a huge bonus. Our two spaniels were made to feel so welcome instantly also, something we were worried about initially. We spent our weekend with a mixture of eating, relaxing and walking! Walks can be done literally from the front door, we ended up on the fells (not sure where) but the view of Conistion lake from every angle was beautiful! We spent another night with an Indian takeaway from Sara’s (highly recommend) and another day we invited our family members to join us for breakfast and a walk, something we asked permission for from the owners who couldn’t have been more lovely! Thank you for our lovely stay, we will always remember it and will definitely be back!!

Hello Cath, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It's a gem of a cottage, isn't it? You couldn't have picked a better location for getting out and about on some great walks. Come back any time, you can be sure of a very warm welcome.
