“Lovely ever changing view.”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is the first holiday let we have stayed in where we were happy just to stay in and look at the beautiful view. Sun on the mountains and white mist over the lake some early mornings. Watching the boats, birds, sheep, cows and baby rabbits. Comfortable flat with all we needed. Lots to see and do in the area. Nice 2hr boat trip on the lake from Pooley Bridge. Had a lovely meal at the Inn there. Shower over the bath ok for husband but I couldn't use it as no handrail for support.. Slope down to car park.

“Gorgeous view”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The photographs don't quite capture the beauty of the view-you could literally spend your whole time here just looking out at the view and the constantly changing sky.
The flat is well equipped, although I would have liked a sofa that I could have truly reclined (and possibly read poetry or philosophy) on. It's a standard two-seater, which of course is perfect for a two person flat.
It was a little cold initially until we got it warmed up, but it was February, so only to be expected.

“Beautiful views.”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We enjoyed a lovely stay here. The location and the views were spectacular. The owner was very helpful in the lead up to our stay. Flat had pretty much everything you could need and there were lots of walks locally. I would stay again given the opportunity.

“With that view you could only be in the Lakes”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A well appointed ground floor flat amongst a small group of cottages, half a mile from Ullswater. With uninterrupted views of Ullswater and surrounding hills you could sit in (our outside) this cottage and just enjoy the ever changing colours and shadows throughout the day.

The flat is very comfortable with a lot of nick nacks to give it that country cottage feel.

The only downside is that although you can feel you're in the middle of nowhere when you're looking out, there is an upstairs and, as quiet as the guests in there may be, you will here them moving about.

Both cellphone and Wifi connections were patchy; do not expect to be able to login to work when there (but then again, why would you in such a place?)
