Fantastic cottage, very well equipped. Great location, ideal for railway, local shop and pub. Some lovely walks nearby.

Lovely stay at this surprisingly spacious cottage - it's full of character and has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break away from it all. We took the steam train to Ravenglass and had a day mucking about on the dunes, then we went back again to go to Muncaster Castle - a really interesting old house with regular hawks displays. Two of our party managed the hike up Scafell Pike, which is easily accessed from nearby Wastwater. Took them three hours up and three hours down. We had some brilliant walks with the dog in the secluded woods nearby and even swam in the lake at Wastwater. Can't beat England on a gorgeous summer's day, we were pretty lucky with the weather. Several nice pubs nearby, we had Sunday dinner at the Bowerhouse Inn (five minute walk up the road) and sat out in the garden at the Boot Inn (ten minute drive to the next village).
Our only criticism is about the lack of a recycling collection in the area - even the local recycling bins in Eskdale Green village had no plastics section. We ended up taking our recycling back home with us - maybe some feedback to pass on to the local council. Time to up your game!
Thanks for a smashing holiday though, highly recommended.
