Friendly and helpful introduction to the property and area.
Lovely well equipped cottage with lots of wood and coal for cosy fires
Fantastic location for walking with a local pub selling good real ales!

“Good Cottage - Good location”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Comfortable cottage, great welcome from helpful and hospitable owners.
Kitchen had everything you could need.
Better TV than we have a home, log fire with plenty of wood, comfortable beds,
All nicely furnished.
Kids walked the owners' dog, fed the chickens and ducks and were offered the chance to feed the lamb.
Good location on the northern edge of the lake district, handy for Keswick and Whinlatter forest.
Great Holiday.

We had a warm welcome with tea and cake from Mrs Trafford. The cottage is as described: 2 good sized double bedrooms, one with a single bed in it too. Family bathroom, big living room with open fire and dining table, small kitchen.
We enjoyed our stay and found it convenient for the northern lakes. We enjoyed seeing a new lamb, calf, and some newly hatched ducklings.

“Peaceful, relaxing, warm and friendly”

We had a week here early February. what a beautiful quiet peaceful place! The cottage was so warm with storage heaters and an open fire. It was very comfortable and had everything you could want for a week's break away. The welcome was warm, friendly and helpful, and the scenery so beautiful with snow on the mountain tops but sunshine and clear blue skies each day.

Definitely a place to return to.
