    One of the best cottages I’ve ever been to Suitable for 3 families Wonderful garden Can easily walk to Ambleside Has all what you need in order to cook and clean Just GREAT

    What a quaint little cottage! We stayed as a group of 8 (4 adults, 4 children). The sleeping arrangements were no issue given that there were lots of beds of various sizes! The large dining table, functional kitchen and log fire made this a real home from home. As a mad cyclist, I was pleased that this was also at the top of a large and steep hill! We loved it. The kids loved it. Would book again in a heartbeat

    Fabulous cottage, very cosy and full of character. Great location, close to walking routes and lakes but not in the middle of it all, nice and relaxed surroundings. Nice and clean, plenty of rooms to chill with good friends. Host quick at replying, would definitely recommend. Really enjoyed our stay

    “Great location, spacious and yet cosy cottage. Plenty of room for a large group or families. Having the three parking spaces was a certainly a great help. Top of the garden has fantastic views – weather depending!
