“Idyllic, tranquil get-away”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is the third year in a row we've stayed at Holmescales. The cottage is gorgeous. So cosy and well equipped. Location is great, easy to access when coming from the South. Catherine, the owner, is really helpful and has thought of everything. I used the hot tub for the first time this year. It was bliss, relaxing in the garden taking in the gorgeous view. Looking forward to our next visit.

Thank you Catherine.

“Idyllic”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Beautiful, cosy cottage completely equipped with all utensils. The location is great, very easy to access nearby towns. The hot tub is a fantastic bonus where you can enjoy the peace and quiet of being in the Lake District and the surrounding views. Would have loved to have stayed longer!

“Ideal get away”
Reviewed 7 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Beautiful country cottage for a perfect get away with friends and family. All utilities you would require, including a very relaxing hot tub. Very clean and really comfortable beds! The fire place was a treat for the colder weather, on top of the every room with heating.
