Our cottage was compact but warm and cosy - just what was needed on a wet, cold day (in fact week!). Literally two up and two down, the bathroom and toilet were a little inconveniently positioned on the ground floor whilst the bedrooms were upstairs. That said, the cottage was very well equipped (even for cooking a Christmas dinner)and had everything we wanted. Our only criticism was that, for family viewing, the TV was ridiculously small...and we had brought lots of Dvds for those long winter evenings that just didn't get watched. The location was everything we had imagined...the farm is in the middle of the fells and everywhere we looked was beautiful unspoilt scenery. We could walk our dog in a variety of directions although he did need to be on a lead most of the time because of the sheep - but there are walks nearby where dogs can be off the lead, so just ask the owners. The owners were friendly and welcoming and responded instantly when the kitchen light bulb went in the middle of cooking Christmas dinner! We loved the location. We needed a family sized TV.
