As expected from the website, cosy and very quiet. The duvet was too warm for us, we asked for another and got one, the young lady was very pleasant.

This was a perfect place for our get away to the Lakes. Although it is on the edge of the lake district it is in a lovely location surrounded by rolling hills and open countryside. Set in an ideal village location there is plenty to do all around. Within a few minutes you are into the traditional lakeland setting and all the well known beauty spots are within easy travelling distance. There are two lovely village pubs one of which was an awarding winning pub for food and is well worth a visit. Our hosts were warm and welcoming and the cottage was 5 star quality.
