If you are looking for a relaxing break after a stressful time, you will find it here. The cottage is warm and cosy in the cooler months and when the temperature rises, you can sit out on the patio surrounded by roses, clematis and other blooms which catch the morning sun. Step out of the cottage gate and explore the Lakeland garden - take tea in the summer house or relax with a glass of wine. When you arrive after your journey here, we will do our best to make you feel at home and make sure you have the holiday that you want.     

Fancy a long weekend here? Not everyone can afford a week off on holiday (although we recommend that it's the best way of really relaxing here), so we are advertising long weekends at selected times of the year. Have a look at our availability calendar & book a long weekend in lovely Lake District scenery. 

As always, 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).  If you are bringing your bike, it would be helpful if you would let us know in advance so we can ensure a secure, undercover space is available. Advance notice would be particularly appreciated if bringing an e-bike to ensure we comply with fire regulations.

Internet Access: After a long village campaign, we finally got an ultra fast fibre internet network in the village with fibre to the premises. So we are now able to offer our visitors blistering internet speeds of around 100 Mbps - assuming you have equipment capable of dealing with these speeds which are faster than in many towns and cities. 

Green Power: We've been partially powering the cottage with solar power for the last 13 years and now we have added another 16 solar panels and battery storage: just part of our commitment to help this lovely environment of ours.

What peace and beautiful scenery - no wonder writers and artists were so inspired.
