Lovely, characterful cottage. Boot village is very picturesque and a fantastic place for walking. The house has very comfortable beds and a well-equipped kitchen. The garden is very pretty and you can hear the rush of the river beside the house. Suggestions: WiFi, especially since there is no mobile phone signal in the village. Also - towels! Lastly, the house was clean, but it's a bit musty downstairs and probably could do with a good spring clean.

HI Victoria, you just can't beat a nice bit of character in a cottage, can you? Fabulous to hear how much you enjoyed exploring Boot. Thank you for your other comments, which I promise I will investigate. Here's to relaxing in the garden next to a babbling beck!

Whillanside could be a wonderful place and ought to score 9 or 10 for every category. However, the kitchen utensils and implements were not clean, the ensuite shower was weak and leakey and most importantly, it had no wifi. If these issues were dealt with we would certainly book it again as it is a charming property.

We loved the olde worlde charm of Whillanside Cottage. It was cosy , comfortable and very private. Lovely garden to sit out in with great views of the fells. The bedrooms are lovely with crisp white bed linen - super clean. En suite shower room is really nice with a lovely large shower. The cottage was very well equipped with every you could possibly need , this was really appreciated. Great location too ( couldn't be better infact ). The Boot Inn is just opposite and serves lovely food. We would recommend Whillanside without hesitation and we hope to return one day.
