Guest Comments

“Beautiful cottage in a stunning location. Hope to book again for next year”

Louisa, November 2019

“Second time at Tottsie, it was lovely to stay there again. Improvements made include a dishwasher which was helpful. Beautiful views from the cottage and easy access to woods behind for walking the dog. Quirky garden access arrangements removes usefulness of the garden but that’s a minor point with the Lake District on the doorstep.”

Maggi, November 2019

“Lovely comfortable cottage. Very well equipped. Good location to access the lakes. Superb views. Shame there wasn’t direct access to the garden and garden could have benefited from some nice flower borders and nicer seating. Wi-fi would be good but overall a lovely place to stay.”

Julie, September 2019

“Lovely cottage, only downfall no wifi. Upstairs bathroom has a toilet thats not connected to the main drain, sadley this smelt and toilet needed a good clean it was stained…..no fitting plug on sink as it was broken….it had been a push down one, could loose thinys down it. Plastic one there but didnt fit to hold water.Ensure you do take tea/coffee etc I’ve not stayed anywhere wher you don’t get left something. Make sure you do take food no shops near to pick any up after a long journey. Otherwise lovely place to stay.”

Karen, August 2019

“Lovely cottage, should provide WiFi.”

Shona, August 2019

“Another stay here, everything you could possibly need, perfect :)”

Ben, January 2019

“Lovely cottage in a beautiful location and very quiet. Plenty of room and great to have a bathroom both upstairs and downstairs. We,like many others, had no joy with the TV which was our only complaint. It really should be easier to get a picture. The steps to and from the kitchen may be a problem for some especially coming down to the door into the dining area. Very good heating and very comfortable beds with cosy duvets. Gorgeous!”

“A charming little cottage in a great location. Will definitely recommend and stay again.”
