A fantastic cosy cottage whcih is well equipped and close to two fantastic real ale pubs. A car is needed for this property, but it is close to some great countryside and some lovely beaches. Would recommend this location to explore the North and West Lakes.

Delightful cottage, perfect for our stay whilst walking some of the 'Wainwrights'. The cottage was perfectly clean and Susan and family very hospitable. The 'Masons' almost next door was a great benefit too.
