    Storage for bikes is super handy, as is the parking for two cars. Our kids loved the large lawn, and the view of the river is beautiful.

    Chesters café is a favourite for us too!

    Hoping to be back soon 🙂

    Fabulous location and beautifully equipped and tasteful cottage. Clean and comfy beds and fluffy towels and welcome hamper. Silent nights and birdsong in the morning. Perfect trip, thank you.

  • Phillip says:

    Had a great feeling upon booking this property as I loved the look of it and the location. However, it completely exceeded my expectations as it was simply wonderful and a gorgeous part of the lake district. Plus the vicinity to the pub and Chesters is just unbelievable!! Thanks again

  • Jan says:

    Great location and property!

  • Scott says:

    An amazing cottage in a perfect location. We were able to walk, mountain bike, eat and drink in a lovely cafe and just relax all directly from the doorstep. The cottage has plenty of space for 6 and has a good selection of entertainment should the weather make you need to spend more time indoors, we were lucky, sunshine the whole time and outdoor heaven

  • Lucy says:

    Had a great weekend with family, the cottage is in a fab part of the Lake District & was well equipped would definitely recommend to friends & family

  • Elias says:

    All of us really enjoyed our stay in the House, everything was as good as we hoped it to be – even Baloo the dog agrees.
    Thanks for being so helpful and welcoming! Best, Elias”

    Perfect location for those hard hikes in the Langdales,up Helvellyn and over to Scarfell. Also perfect location for those easy walks along the Cumbria Way to Elterwater. This path is also a good jogging route. With pubs around the corner,cafe/shop down the road and Ambleside close for grocery shopping this couldn’t of been better.

  • Mandi says:

    Fantastic stay in every way … from comfy home (recently refurbed) … to wonderful welcoming touches (homemade bread, farm butter) … perfect position for walking, dreaming, eating (the modern and very yummy Chester’s cafe is just 10 steps away)! We loved it (5 of us), spacious and modern – and would return! Thank you to the hosts – a superb stay!

  • Jodie says:

    Lovely cottage, quiet village. Beautiful spot by the bridge and close to a waterfall. Lovely box of goodies left for us in the kitchen.

  • Donna says:

    Beautiful home in stunning location! The closest town for amenities is Ambleside, a 7ish minute drive. There’s a fabulous cafe/bakery a minutes walk away but you’ll need to do some big walks to burn off the calories! Perfect for our family of 5 with plenty of space in the common area and space for privacy too. We’d definitely stay here again.

  • Freya says:

    Lovely cottage in a excellent location. Far enough away from the busy town but close enough if access required. Lovely walks straight from the front door. Clean, bright and comfortable accommodation with all the crockery and pot and pans you need to be fully self catering.

  • Carl says:

    Great property in a great location. Very comfortable and well facilitated.

  • Kirstie says:
