Ourselves and the dog had a wonderful short break in this warm and welcoming home. The location is perfect for exploring on foot and also a great base for travelling around the Lake District.
The cottage was beautifully set out and finished to a high standard throughout.
The weather was ideal and allowed us to sit outside in our own pretty area and relax with a glass of wine.
The owners were friendly and on-hand, should we have needed them, but left us to enjoy our own privacy.
Would definitely revisit and also recommend to friends.
