A superb location for walking, running, fishing and climbing.Superbly equipped and with fantastic views over to Kirkcarrion & Cronkley Fell, the cottage is warm & comfortable. The double bed is one of the largest & certainly the most comfortable we've ever had the pleasure of sleeping in and the utility room is a welcome bonus ! Nick & Liz are superb hosts. We would heartily recommend you stay here. S. H. from Liverpool Oct 2018


This is the best cottage we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in lots. Elizabeth, Nick & Missy could not have been more helpful. The cottage was immaculate. It had everything you needed and views to die for from all windows. Walks from the doorstep.  G. & F. from Yorkshire Nov 2017
