Seating/lounge area was not very comfortable; would suggest a comfortable settee rather than two recliners - it did not feel "cosy" of an evening; also no fire/focal point of heating.
Peaceful Pickle Cottage

We were met by Liz who is very welcoming and friendly. She showed us around the cottage which was lovely and homely. The living area and kitchen are warm and spacious. The bedroom is large and bed is huge. The location was just on the edge of the Lakes which is great if you just want a taster ready for further exploring another time. The only draw back the spiral stairs!

If you want to tour both the Lakes and the Dales, this is a perfect spot. The Cottage itself is pretty much faultless with a very friendly and helpful host.
You may get a visit from the inquisitive hens!
A cosy retreat
Left on 12/02/2009 for a stay in July 2009 | Alison
Very friendly welcome from the owner, with a gift of a bottle of wine and free-range eggs. The cottage is quite private, cosy, comfortable and very well equipped. It's ideally placed to explore both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, with shops nearby in Kirkby Lonsdale and plenty of places to eat out. The bedroom is delightful though the spiral iron staircase to the upper floor is quite narrow and might prove difficult for some to negotiate, especially with a suitcase! This is the first holiday rental we feel we might actually return to in future.
