WE WERE ABSOLUTELY THRILLED by RebeccaThomas, Gloucester, June 2016 on November 28th 2016
When we got to our cottage we were absolutely thrilled with the beautiful setting. It was totally private with spectacular views. The cottage has everything you might need and more, it was perfect. There is a private beach on Lake Windermere only 10mins walk from the Cottage, we did not see another person there on 5 different visits. We loved it. Bliss.
WE ARE COMING BACK! by David Youngs, Insch, October 2016 on November 28th 2016
The cottage was perfect, the view from the patio suburb and the location great. The added bonus of the pool and table tennis room was a welcome relief to help entertain the 12 year old daughter. Will definitely be booking this cottage again.
