Guest Comments

“Amazing location, clean and well maintained.Would love to visit again if I’m up in the lake district. Like a mini home from home.”

“Ideal location if you want a break from everyday life, phone signal with a short walk!! Amazing scenery and walks and the cottage was welcoming and cosy with the log burner. There is so much to do in the Lake District.”

Rebecca, June 2019

“It was in a beautiful rural location, very peaceful and quiet, it was a very relaxing stay. We loved the wood burner, some of the logs were a bit big, which needed to be cut down in order to fit into the stove. There wasn’t any kindling, so my husband had to chop kindling from the firewood. It would also have been handy if there was more toilet paper. Overall, it was a great stay, it is very rustic and it is in a rural location, so you will need to take some food items with you, so you have some supplies, as the nearest shop with minimal supplies is in Ulpha (Post Office) which is about a 15 minute drive. Be aware that there are 4 gates to open and close before you get to the cottage, this was ok for us, but may not appeal to others. Be aware the water is supplied from the local fells and it is filtered, but does come out in a yellowish colour, which could be off-putting for some, especially when using it for bathing.”
