How wonderful that you joined the ever increasing number of guests arriving by steam train. Since your visit we have installed a beautiful new kitchen with larger appliances and two fridges and other space saving solutions. Plus we have had a bespoke oak table built for the dining area to give more room. The local Eskdale Stores are open 7 days a week and stock most things if guests run out of supplies. Thank you for your lovely review. Best wishes from the team at Select Cottages.
