A very warm and friendly welcome was provided by the owners who live on the farm joining this cottage.
The cottage was clean and cosy with a modern kitchen. Lots of useful equipment and games for the children.
The location is very quiet but, with a car, is in easy striking distance of all the main attractions. Read more

Cottage short break
Left on 05/17/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | Janice Alamanou
The cottage was warm, comfortable and very clean. It has character features expected and has a well equipped kitchen. I was met on arrival and shown around the premises, being informed if there were any problems that the owners are just around the corner. I found them to be a lovely, friendly couple.
Magazines and tourist information, including a large map of the area were set out inside which I found very helpful. The garden was quite large, but contained and my little dog loved exploring here.
A little way down the road is Hesket Newmarket where 'The Crown' pub is situated. Some good everyday food here and they make their own beers in their brewery to the back of the premises. The Post Office and little store is a couple of doors up. The next village along is Caldbeck with a petrol station and a larger store, although still small. Certain small pieces of meat can be bought here.
The cottage was easy to find with the directions given to me when booking. The only downside was the road going to and from it is single lane, but this can be expected in this area and being on a farm.
getting away from it all
Left on 09/17/2012 for a stay in August 2012 | Lloyd
perfect way to enjoy a work hard, play hard holiday with family. walked all day in the lakes, couple of pints in the crown at hesket newmarket then back to gardners cottage for home comforts. All necessary mod cons but no unnecesary ones ensured great family times and moments.
Get away from it all but have to go to bed when the kids do!

Such a beautiful part of the country and a great place to get away from it all. Ideal if you want to get away from it all (even mobile phone signals!) Slightly less room than we had expected. The property mentioned it was ideal for younger children but the children's bedroom is open to the lounge and so once the children were in bed we couldn't use the lounge which rather spoilt the evenings
