My wife and I booked Jenny's Croft for a 3 night break to celebrate her milestone birthday. We invited two long term friends as our guests.
The building is of an extremely high standard and spacious. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything four people would need during the stay and the welcome basket of wine and other goodies were the best we have ever seen and we've seen a lot over the years.
The living room is huge, comfortable and has the most wonderful log burner centrally in the room. We used it on two occasions, just because we could and to enhance t he ambience. (sorry for using so many logs but it eats them)
Free internet is provided which was really appreciated and helped us plan our daytime trips. (Siloth and Gretna Green)
We cooked a special meal on our 1st night, ate a lovely meal at the Crown Inn in Kirkoswald about 2 miles away on the 2nd. This is a lovely country village with pleasant atmosphere with the smell of log/coal fires. The Featherstone Arms was opposite. Both pubs were lovely and welcoming and served food. Its best to book well in advance to avoid disappointment, we did. Parking there was a bit awkward but on both evening visits we parked outside the closed garage at the bottom of the street near the bridge over a stream.
Our third night involved another cooked meal within the kitchen of Jenny's Croft.
The weather during our stay wasn't the best so we didn't spend much time in the gardens which were large and well manicured. A rear patio area had a gas bar-b-que and patio table/chairs which we didn't use.We met Jilly the manager of the estate (we think) She was wonderful and dealt with an unforeseen minor kitchen appliance breakdown with efficiency and an apology. Jilly, thank you so much.
Overall a fantastic stay highly recommended by us all.
Had an fabulous 2 night stay, everything was provided, people were friendly and welcoming
We have been back to Rowley Estates several times & stayed in different properties each time & we have not been disappointed yet.
All the properties have always been exceptionally clean & tidy, the are fully equipped with every thing you could possible need, including all the towels, soaps, shampoo etc
The welcome basket is another lovely touch & is always so handy if you get there late.
The fact they are all Dog friendly makes them even more attractive to us & as our Pugs as both love the Lake District & staying in the Barns its home from home.
We always hire a Hot Tub from Cumbrian Hot each time which makes the stay even more relaxing :)
I would not hesitate to recommend any of the properties to both couples & families as they can cater for most size parties.

Jenny's Croft is the most amazing holiday cottage and perfect for our 'getaway' to the Lake District. Every minute detail had been thought of to make our stay so memorable. With the beautiful weather that accompanied our stay we couldn't have wished for more. 'Amazing, awesome, fabulous' what more can
we say! Can't wait to return in the near future. Thankyou!!
We were all blown away with this cottage absolutely delightful bigger than it looks in the photo. Clean and tidy and the views are spectacular . We had a three night stay but wished we could of stayed a couple of more days. The hamper and fresh fruit was an added bonus. Our grandaughter loved running around the beautiful gardens. Luckily we had fine weather. The owners have thought of everything. We will give this place a big fat Ace.
