AA-COVID-Confident-logo-RGB-72dpi-web-small (2).jpgWell - it's official! We can open from the 4th July. 

Your safety is our first consideration and, whilst we have always kept the cottage spotlessly clean at all times, we will now be introducing additional cleaning and sanitising measures to ensure that the risks associated with Covid-19 are reduced to an absolute minimum. 

These follow best industry practice and Government guidelines and will be continuously reviewed. We will be instituting an enhanced cleaning and sanitising regime before you arrive to include appropriate treatment of hard surfaces, touch points, soft furnishings, bedding, drawers, wardrobes, kitchen cutlery & utensils, Fridge and freezers &  outdoor areas. In addition we have prepared an online guest information pack to eliminate most paper based information. These measures have earned us the  AA Covid-19 confident mark.

In the interests of hygiene, we have temporarily removed ornaments, DVDs, scatter cushions and throws and have reduced the number of books on the bookshelves so that titles can be rotated. Paper based information that is left is laminated or disposable. 

If you want more details, we will be happy to supply them.


So with this assurance, if you want to have a holiday in this lovely part of the world, please book using our Free to Book page link on this web site. 

We look forward to welcoming old friends and new........

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.
