Beautiful cottage , perfect for a relaxing break for two. Very handy off the M6 which meant that even although we were only staying for two nights we left Glasgow and just over two hours later we were in the cottage relaxing and looking out at the panoramic peaceful views. Cottage tastefully decorated, well equipped and warm. Friendly owner lives onsite and popped round to see that all was OK for us. Very kind gifts of local fudge and prosecco left for us. Easy drive or, better still, a walk over the fields to the local village of Greystoke which has a friendly inn, with bar food and a local shop. From Pippa's Cottage we were easily able to visit the local towns of Keswick, Grasmere, Pooley Bridge, Ambleside and Windermere; even though we were only there for two nights. Penrith, the Rheged centre and Carlisle also close by. As well as the outdoor pursuits of the area there are plenty of local cafes, restaurants and bars and we were very impressed that there are several restored cinemas in the area too. We hope to make Pippa's Cottage a regular retreat from the pressures of life. Would highly recommend.
