Very Good


Reviewed 21 Aug 2016

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage. The owners have thought of everything to make it a true home from home. The location is perfect in an idyllic countryside setting but within easy reach of Hawkshead village. A perfect base from which to tour the Lakes.

Owner's reply: So pleased you had a great time and enjoyed our cottage. Hope to see you again. Thanks for posting your review
