Quirky little place with fantastic views. Well equipped with free-range eggs on arrival. Helpful owner. Would stay here again.

“Wake up to fabulous views from your bed!”
Reviewed 19 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

What a fab little barn for 2, it's probably the best place we've stayed in the lakes for views, ease of use,homeliness,functionality,great eggs and friendly owner. We arrived late in the dark so the thoughtfullness of tea,coffe,milk and eggs was great and when we awoke on sun morning to open the curtains and see the view it was just perfection. The weather wasn't great for us so the benefit of having a home from home that you actually enjoyed staying in was a great bonus which we enjoyed as much as the walking. We're both looking forward to our next stay as we'll be back very soon! thanks Anne for your attention to detail and friendliness

“The Best Holiday Cottage Yet!”
Reviewed 12 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Having rented a number of small holiday cottages in different regions of England we have to say that this is the best so far, regardless of price. The position is ideal for exploring the Lake District and the views over Ennerdale Water and the surrounding fells is a terrific bonus. The cottage itself is very cosy and has character. The furnishings, fittings and decoration could not be faulted and we settled in immediately and felt right at home - it is also entirely self-contained with its own parking so it really does feel like your own (temporary) home. We were particularly pleased to find that practically everything was provided - even some food and drink items. Quite often a property rental has been entirely cleared after a let so you end up having to buy all sorts of cleaning items, rubbish bags, tea, coffee etc. which is a bit of a bind. Anne, the owner, should be congratulated for making her cottage so welcoming and equipping it so well. We shall return at the earliest opportunity.
