We loved our stay here. The location is second to none. More than enough walks from the front door to go somewhere new every day during our week stay. The games room was brilliant for our teenage boys and to have such a beautiful private garden was a bonus. The nearby Kirkstile Inn sells fabulous food and beer with fell walker sized portions! The cRead moreottage was warm and cosy with plenty of hot water and a very useful boot room. We launched our kayak onto Loweswater and had lots of fun. Hide

FABULOUS! An idyllic spot for a 'get away from it all' break. The owners have thought of everything! You are made to feel welcome from the minute you walk in the door. Each bedroom is super comfy and the whole place is spotless. Every nook and cranny is filled with books; the games room is perfect for family gatherings; the extensive dvd selection Read morecovers all tastes. The location is perfect and the views of the lake are stunning. Not enough room on here to write everything that is great about it! Hide

The Place is the perfect Lake District getaway. The location is so special - set in the beauty and tranquility of Loweswater and the historic property is so cosy and atmospheric. There are stunning walks straight out of the back door and the local pub serves up the best crumble ever! We loved it! Cant wait to get back there.
