“A peaceful Lakeland hide away!”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were lucky enough to stay at this cottage back in 2008 to 2010 and by chance discovered it was available once again. Situated on a private drive it is impossible to describe the peace and tranquility without actually being there. For lovers of wild nightlife this is not the place for you but for those you simply want to relax and enjoy simple pleasures, whether it be a walk up to Latterbarrow to look over Windermere, Ambleside and Wray Castle, or drink wine in the garden watching the birds you would find it hard to find a more serene location. Geoff, the very charismatic owner will delight in showing you all that is available in and around the cottage and has invested heavily in bringing the cottage up to date with the renovated bathroom and kitchen, including a dishwasher (bliss!) and at this time of year the central heating is simply not required due to the fabulous log burner with candles and Simon and Garfunkel playing softly in the background! There are also provisions for younger ones so grandchildren are also catered for. I digress, from waxing lyrical! If you want a large helping of P&Q with beautiful surroundings then this is the place for you. We have already booked next year. I could not recommend this cottage higher. try it once and you will be back.

“Great location and cottage”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The cottage was absolutely lovely. Everything we could have imagined and more.
It was very clean and modern in the kitchen and bathroom, but at the same told had a lot of character throughout. The living room and log burner were an amazing addition that we really enjoyed.

Working with Geoff was brilliant. He was informative and helpful and gave good recommendations that made our trip a success.

The walks around the area are gorgeous and we had a lot of fun wandering.

“Great location”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The cottage is perfectly situated between Ambleside and Hawkshead. It is both quiet and secluded, whilst being in the heart of the the Lake District. It has all the facilities you need for a stay in the lakes, including a lovely garden. We recommend the property.

“Lovely Cottage, great location”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed here in July 2015, The cottage really is lovely, in a very peaceful and beautiful location, but only 15-20 mins walk to Hawkshead. Central location provides good access to all the lake district. Will definitely return.

“A great break!!!!!”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

A beautiful cottage in lovely location.

This cottage is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for a week in the lakes. We spent a week at the end of June beginning of July and while you can feel like you're in the middle of nowhere Hawkshead and Ambleside are very close by so nothing is more than a walk or short drive away. Having a private garden was also a bonus to relax in the gorgeous weather.

We were met by Geoff the owner who as well as showing us how everything worked and getting us settled had provided us with loads of information about the area before we arrived which was great.

Would definitely recommend and hopefully we can make a return visit at some point in the future
