Hi Lisa, I just love getting feedback like this! I'm so pleased you had a wonderful holiday. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

We stayed here with two friends on a short break. The cottage was very well equipped and was cosy and comfortable. Despite the howling gales, I slept better than I had for months. There were lots of lovely quirky parts to the decor (the little wooden mice popping up in different places, the collections of weights and measures). I particularly loved the kitchen, although we were disappointed to find the oven and grill rather dirty and greasy. The electric heating worked well after the initial chilly first evening. Since there were no shops in the village, it would have been useful to know that we had to supply toilet rolls. On the other hand, it would have been good to know that there were two hair-dryers in the cottage so that we didn't bring our own.

Unfortunately, the local pub, the Last Man, was closed throughout our stay, but we found nice places to eat in Cockermouth and surrounding areas. The break enabled us to briefly visit Buttermere, Derwent Water, Cockermouth, Penrith and Maryport. It was very relaxing. Thank you for a lovely stay. We will certainly use Sally's cottages to explore another area of the Lakes in the future.

Hi Eleanor, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your break. It's a lovely quirky cottage isn't it? And comfy and cosy for snuggling up on a wild winters evening!
I'm sorry to hear that some of the cleanliness wasn't up to scratch when you arrived, I'll address this with the cleaner. Thanks for your other feedback too, I'll bear this in mind when reviewing the cottage information on our website.
I hope you cna start planning another trip to the Lakes soon, if you'd like any help choosing where to stay next time just get in touch and I'll be happy to offer some suggestions.

Great little cottage for a quiet getaway. Well equipped and clean. Very comfortable double bed. Warm and cost once the electric heating kicks in, but the log burner is perfect on an evening.

Pub, Last Man Inn 100mtrs away is very friendly with really good home cooked food at proper prices. Not always open and only serving food at set times is not really a problem. If you check their Facebook page they update when they are open and what is available to eat.

Perfect location to explore Cumbria and the Lakes.
