“Nice cottage in a picturesque hamlet”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The cottage is located in the small hamlet of Bousted Hill, which is only a 15-minute drive from Carlisle. It is very small, so be prepared that there are no amenities in walking distance. But that was no problem for us. We loved the idyllic atmosphere in the sweet cottage which is newly renovated and very well equipped. The bathroom is very spacious, there is a big walk-in shower. The living-room has two big entrace doors, so there is a lot of light coming in during the day. There is a new open kitchen in the living room. We also loved the underfloor heating ;-) Raphaela and Steve were the most friendly hosts. They welcomed us with tea and whisky and we appreciated to have several chats with them. There is a huge, beautiful garden with curious and nice hens who are willing to join you if you leave the door open... If you love a natural setting and hide from the city life, it's a perfect place to stay. We loved it and will definetely recommend it.

“Compact accommodation, friendly host, appealing location on the Solway.”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our host Steve was helpful and friendly. The cottage is small and stylish, but equipped with the minimum of requirements for a week-long stay. Equipment we had become used to during our tour of Scotland - freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, mirrors outside the bathroom - are lacking here. We managed of course. We were able to use the freezer in the main house and there is at least one efficient laundry in Carlisle. The location is beautiful, historic and well placed for exploring the Solway Coast, Hadian's Wall and even the Lake District.

“Stylish accommodation, Very welcoming host”
Reviewed 30 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The accommodation was stylish, clean, tidy beautifully decorated & well equipped the enclosed garden accross the lane was great for sitting watching the fish in the pool and feeding the very friendly chickens the owner was very welcoming and friendly to approach & gave us a guided tour of the facilities and grounds. Robin was everything we wanted a great location with wonderfully peaceful surroundings also not far from Carlisle, can not fault anything apart from the wifi connection being very weak however me & my partner had a comfortable and relaxing short stay and look forward to going back.

“Beautiful, modern and lovely owners.”
Reviewed 17 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This was everything we wanted from a relaxing countryside getaway. The accommodation was beautifully decorated and extremely clean and tidy. There was everything we needed and was perfect for what we wanted. The owner was very welcoming, friendly and very approachable if we needed anything. I would highly recommend this and would definitively go back and stay here.
