"Everything you need and more!"
What a lovely cottage! Very charming and modern interior...super clean and tidy with lots of little extras that you might need..Wifi, toys, books and DVDs for the little ones, wine and biscuits on arrival! Very close to Ducky's farm which is a great day out...and still close enough to Windermere to make the most of each day. Would recommend this for anyone with high expectations...and hope to stay there again soon! Perfect for our little family!

"More than a home-away-from-home"
One of the best holiday homes we've been to. Everything clean, fresh and modern. Loved the open plan cooking/living area. Found the second lounge useful. Really grateful of the welcome pack. Everything you could need was there. Flookburgh a good base for the southern area of the Lake District.

"a delightful little cottage that provided an ideal base for our driving holiday in the lake district"
Our group of three spent three nights at the Lavender Cottage while we drove extensively around the lakes. We were extremely comfortable and Nina was an exceptional host.
The cottage, though small, is delightful, and easily accommodated our group. It is recently renovated and everything is in perfect condition. The highlight is the little deck which provides the perfect setting for morning tea or an evening drink, in good weather.
There are two lounges, kitted with satellite TV, DVD players and a host of books and board games, which would work well for groups with children.
Given our relatively short stay, the lack of a dishwasher or a clothes dryer was irrelevant, however it may be of consideration for people intending to stay for longer.
There is not a lot in the immediate vicinity of the cottage, and Flookburgh tends to close early. However Nina provided us a welcome pack that included all that we required, till we got to a store.
On the whole, we had a great break; and would definitely consider the Lavender Cottage for our next trip to the Lake District.

"Modern, cosy cottage in good location, perfect for a relaxed getaway."
Booking was easy and the owner friendly and helpful, she gave excellent directions which made it easy to find. She was extremely thoughtful in leaving some essentials, and some goodies for us on our arrival .
The cottage is in a quiet location in a village that has most of the shops needed and a couple of pubs too. The Southern Lakes are not far away nor is Grange over Sands which has a nice long promenade.
Lavender Cottage itself is modern, clean and very cosy. It has everything you might need whilst staying there and we were sorry to leave as we'd had such a lovely time there. I would certainly recommend Lavender Cottage to anyone. Obviously there are stairs, so anyone who has a problem with stairs might struggle but certainly no more than anywhere else.
I thought the whole experience was excellent.

"It is a lovely place to stay with everything to make you feel at home"
We were welcome by the owner and given info about amenities in the area and using of the appliances in a very friendly manner. I liked the opens space kitchen and the fact that there are two separate rooms both provided of TV. Not far there are two national trust sites that we visit and enjoyed. We were very pleased that toys were left for our 2 children and a number of DVD's were left to be used. The thing we like least was that we need to park in the street very near to the house but crossing with 2 children was at times a bit worrying considering the quite speedy locals.

"Lovely cottage, beautiful region, we'll be back."
Lavender cottage is well located for all southern Lake District destinations and also very good situated for having a quiet afternoon. The kitchen, the furniture, the sleepingrooms and all the gadgets like two TVs, the Playstation etc. makes Lavender cottage a luxury and comfortable home. Last but not least Nina took care of us in a fabulous way. Thank you very much again.
