- This was our 4th or 5th visit, which we tend to keep for November . The cottage is not for everybody ; we love the old world atmosphere and the open fire , and the creaky floorboards, and the low ceilings , and the sense of experiencing something quite different from modern city life with all its problems etc. This cottage is not for people who want every modern convenience ; its a remote location and all services such as wifi, mobile phone coverage, shops etc are not available. ( although wifi can be found for free in the local pub but not the cottage ). Its ideally situated for people who want to get out , walk, and enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Lakes. I suppose it is showing some ageing in some of the furniture and with the coal fire it does tend to become quite dusty after a while. For us, its hard to beat when selecting a Lakeland retreat.

Hello Derek, Thank you for your review. I bet Whillanside feels like a second home! It's a wonderful quirky cottage, isn't it? You couldn't have picked a better location to escape from the hustle and bustle for a while and get out and about on some fabulous walks. I'm thrilled you had a really great stay and I hope to see you again very soon!
