When we arrived we were met by the owner who showed us around the accommodation, she gave us some useful information about the local area and was full of knowledge on places to go, things to see and do.
This cottage offers everything you could want. It is very comfortable, the owners are very helpful without being intrusive. There are some lovely walks from the doorstep. It is a great base from which to explore the area. We would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Gamekeeper Cottage was extremely well presented and comfortable and fixtures and fittings were of a high standard. The couple who own the cottage live next door and were extremely welcoming and helpful about what to see and do in the area without being intrusive. The view from the table in the garden was spectacular and an evening glass of wine overlooking the valley finished off some lovely days for us. The cottage was in a perfect location to access both the Lake District and other surrounding areas. A visit to Carnforth to the station where Brief Encounter was filmed is a must.
Perfect haven in our storm

The owners were extremely obliging as we did not know when we would arrive due to bereavment. They could not not have done more for us.
The cottage was everything we wanted, private, clean and luxurious and the views (even from the bed) were outstanding.
At our age we want those little touches that were provided for us.
We will definately be back under better circumstances and explore the wonderful surroundings - although in this cottage you have to force yourself to go out!
