This newly refurbished property exceeded expectations. All items inside were clean, fresh and new with everything we needed to hand...including electric blankets. We’ll definitely be booking this accommodation again.

New Zealand, London and Ireland. May 2008

The accommodation exceeded our expectations. The owners knew the area well and kept an extensive reference book that included brochures from attractions all over the area. There were enough ideas in this book to keep a family busy for a month! It was really helpful. The bunk beds, and the owner’s dog were a huge hit with our three year old son. At the end of our visit, he didn’t want to go home....come to think of it, neither did we.

We really enjoyed the lovely cottage and the kids liked to play with "Sammy" very much. Lake District is a great area, fascinating landscape, quiet, excellent food. We will keep this place of the earth in best memory.
Korb, Germany. May 2008

We were totally amazed when we arrived and saw it for ourselves. The photos on the site undersold the property and amazing views, the peaceful atmosphere. Also the 2 mile of country road to get there, it was perfectly secluded to really spend quality time with friends/family yet with a car was close to the major visitor attractions, supermarkets, country pubs etc. Also the owners were wonderful, they went out of their way to help us to find a nice spot for our bbq and to find somewhere to play ball games. Nothing was too much trouble and cheerfully done.
