We're open from April 12th. Bookings have been coming in fast - so fast in fact that at the time of writing, we only have one week in October and then it's two weeks over Christmas/New Year - after that it's 2022!! It will be good to be able to welcome back quite a few repeat visitors and to be able to meet a number of folks coming here for the first time.
If you want a restful holiday in this lovely part of the world, then we would be pleased to hear from you.
It's Spring again (where did last year go to?!) the daffodils are beginning to fade and bluebells are coming into their own.
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).
Internet Access: After a long village campaign, we finally got an ultra fast fibre internet network in the village with fibre to the premises. The fibre is now 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.
