  • Summer says:

    Our hearts are glowing with gratitude for a wonderful stay! The Old Farmhouse was everything we could have needed or wanted, and it was the perfect family vacation home.

  • Summer says:

    Perfect spot for families! Our young sons loved playing in the garden and exploring the fields and streams nearby. We loved having plenty of beds, an excellent kitchen and laundry, and a quick walk across the field to Hawkshead Village for any essentials. We were also perfectly situated for a hike to Tarn Hows. Beautiful home for a beautiful vacation.

  • Sheryl says:

    Quirky cottage combining modern amenities with an old house – the bumpy floors were interesting! We had a super cosy weekend and loved the log fire, watching DVDs and playing games. Internet connection was surprisingly great too

  • Frances says:

    The cottage is well equipped and very clean. We loved the sitting room and having space. The setting is very pretty and it is a pleasant walk into Hawkshead across the fields. A great place in a lovely location. The milkman delivers daily, which is a real bonus

  • Stephen says:

    Great cottage, great location for local walks. Pubs and shops within 5/10 minute walk which don’t require you to walk on roads. Lovely garden and outside area for bbq-ing.
