“Beautiful cottage”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2019

What can I say. What a beautiful cottage. Very well kept, and has everything you could possibly need. The location is perfect, a quiet spot next to a river, but only a short walk into Egremont. Perfect for a family or a couple, and just a short drive to Ennerdale. Thanks for the welcome gifts too!

“Nice stay in a lovely cottage”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2018

The cottage is cosy, well situated, comfortable, nice garden. It's a pity that there is a problem with humidity.

Owner's reply: Hi there and thanks for the review. So glad you enjoyed the cottage. We're sorry you experienced a humidity issue and can only advise that because the cottage is 250 years old with solid walls, it benefits from opening windows daily to air the house. Good luck with the rest of your adventure in the UK! Many thanks Sarah and Sean
