23rd March: Due to the current exceptional circumstances, we regret that we are not taking new bookings for holidays due to take place before mid June. Well keep the situation under review but we'd love to welcome you when things get back to normal.
Over the years many of our visitors have enjoyed exploring the beauties of the Lake District on foot or on two wheels so we are especially pleased to have been awarded these two Visit England's Welcome badges again. Those of you wanting to explore on foot will find walking to suit all abilities and stamina: from mountain climbing to gentle strolls. You can access many lovely walks from the cottage gate & if you plan your route carefully, you'll find many delightful refreshment stops. For those who prefer two wheels, either bring your own bike or hire one nearby (See our location page for bike hire details).
We're excited!! After a long village campaign, we have finally got an ultra fast fibre internet network in the village with fibre to the premises. The fibre has now been connected here so we are now able to offer our visitors blistering internet speeds of around 140 Mbps - assuming you have equipment capable of dealing with these speeds which are faster than in most towns and cities.
What peace and beautiful scenery - no wonder writers and artists were so inspired.
