“Just perfect!”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is a great family holiday house - very spacious and welcoming. We ranged in age from 13months to almost 80! A warm, friendly environment to cater for all needs. The sitting room is wonderful - such a large, open space. We had excellent weather but there were places to put our boots, coats etc. even if they had got drenched. We were amazed to find liquid soap, hand towels, plenty of toilet paper etc. in all the bathrooms - such a pleasant surprise. Mains Cottage is one of those holiday lets that has much more than one expects. The large garden even had a willow "den" in it!

The owners are kind, considerate and practical. What more can one ask for!

Greystoke is a pretty village with a small post office/shop which met all our needs. Due to circumstances we did not visit the pub - hopefully on our next visit we will. Near the welcoming church there is a large play area which is good for all ages, having a toddler play area, an older playground and a football pitch. It was great to be able to take the children there after a day out walking. In the summer months there is an outdoor heated swimming pool!

“This was an ideal property for our needs”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We rented this cottage for a family birthday weekend and we were not disappointed. The lounge and kitchen are huge so 9 of us could fit in easily without them being crowded.
The bedrooms are such that no-one is above another, a great thing with small children jumping about above. The cottage was clean and every amenity provided.The local pub had excellent food and a good atmosphere and there was a small village shop.It was a bit of a drive to Ullswater but worth the visit.We went on a boat on the lake and walked around part of it.

We stayed at mains cottage over the Easter week with friends and family members, the house is beautiful and the surrounding area is breath taking.
It is a perfect place if you have young children, as they can play out safely in the spacious surroundings. Well equipped and by far bigger than the pictures suggest.
We would strongly recommend mains cottage and will most certainly be returning.

“Great cottage in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 5 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The cottage is beautiful, spacious and very well equipped. The living room is more than large enough for everyone in the group to have a seat, as is the kitchen. The bedrooms are all a good size, and having three bathrooms made getting ready very easy. Plenty of parking and walking distance to the local village pub.

The owner answered all our questions and made checking in and out very easy for us.

We would definitely stay again and are already talking about when we can come back!

“Wonderful, relaxing, spacious - faultless!”
Reviewed 28 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We stayed at Mains Cottage in November 2014 for a family birthday get together. Our group consisted of ages from 3 months to 70+ years and the cottage suited us all perfectly.

It is extremely spacious, clean, lovely décor and brilliantly equipped.

The layout of the house works extremely well with a large group of people and everything we needed throughout our stay was available, from kitchen equipment to extra bedding.

The owners are so helpful and accommodating. On our arrival there were fresh flowers and a large bowl of fruit, with an extra gift for the birthday boy!

We would highly recommend this fabulous cottage and hope to return ourselves sometime.
