A cosy cottage located by a ford, adjacent to stunning Rutter Force waterfall, in the tranquil Eden valley, between Lake District and the Dales.Sleeps two couples in king size bed in bedroom plus double sofa bed in lounge. If the second couple would like more comfort and privacy with an extra en suite bedroom, see our separate listing for Ford Cottage plus Owl Room. Fully equipped, with free Wi-Fi. We do not allow children under twelve to stay in the cottage for safety reasons.
Ford Cottage is a quaint and comfortable little cottage in an absolutely beautiful location. Beside a pretty river and adjacent to an amazing waterfall, it's a great place to relax, unwind and enjoy nature. We have red squirrels, otters and wonderful birdlife, including herons and kingfishers. You won't want to leave!
Guests have access to the riverside garden and sitting area. There are lots of public footpaths locally, including one that passes directly behind the property.
Interaction with guests
We don't live full time at Rutter Falls, so are only there occasionally. Therefore we often don't personally meet our guests, but communicate with them via phone and email. Our local housekeeper manages everything at Rutter Falls when we're not there, greeting guests and taking great care of them.
Other things to note
We don't allow smoking in Ford Cottage. For safety reasons no under-twelves may stay in Ford Cottage. Well behaved pets by arrangement. Weekly stays must begin on a Friday. Shorter stays (3 night min) must begin on Friday, Monday or Tuesday.
Please treat our cottage with respect, and leave it as you find it. No children under twelve may stay in the cottage. LPG heating is twice as expensive as mains gas, but is the only system we have. Please be considerate and don't squander it! Week long bookings need to start on Friday, as that's the day our housekeepers are there to change the cottage around. Short stays can begin on Friday, Monday or Tuesday.
Having moved back to the UK from Atlanta, GA, USA four years ago, Rutter Falls Holiday Cottages are our new project in the UK, and we look forward to spending more time here. It is a truly beautiful location which we enjoy sharing with our cottage guests. We love dogs, and have two of our own, so welcome both two and four-footed visitors to Rutter Falls.
