Carree Cottage Reviews

From Email:-

Hi Simon,

As ever, a wonderful stay.  Our friends who stayed with us had never been to the area before and they loved the cottage and the location. That was our 4th time with you in the Lakes

You really do well with the cottages, they have such a lovely traditional feeling.  Everything always runs like clockwork. Another 10 out of 10 holiday.

Kindest regards

Shona Muir, Alloa, Clackmannanshire

Rose Farm Reviews

From Email:-

Rose Farm is a bit special, everyone loved it.

Great walks from the front door and we went to Shap Abbey which I really enjoyed.

The in-laws were over the moon to see a red squirrel today before leaving and we seemed to have constant procession of sheep past the gate, you don’t tend to see much of that where we live!!

We finished off today with a walk up to Harter Fell from Haweswater. T-shirts up the top of Harter Fell in October!! Can’t beat it!!

Already planning next visit. Speak soon – Steven Mackell, York

“Beautiful Rose Farm with Wonderful Views”

It was a joy for my wife and I to return to beautiful Rose Farm for our second holiday there this year. We were so impressed on our previous stay during the summer that we wanted to go again.

The house is well named Rose Farm as during the summer the garden was in full bloom with a fabulous variety of roses. It was a great pleasure to walk in the garden, eat outdoors, and admire the wonderful views of the surrounding area where we saw red squirrels and listened to bird song.

Our autumn visit was equally enjoyable when the house looked beautiful amoungst the glorious colours of autumn.

Rose Farm is a lovely house. Quiet and peaceful. The kitchen is very well equipped and always welcoming with a warm Aga. The spacious living room is so pleasant and relaxing with comfortable easy chairs and a cosy log fire. The bedrooms and en suites are excellent.

All of the lakes were easily accessible from the location; just a short drive away. As well as visiting the larger towns it was a pleasure to explore the small villages in the area where we found some very good places nearby to eat out, or shop.

Our thanks to Simon Cleasby who arranged our holiday for us. Simon’s excellent travel instructions, superb information folders and care helped to make our holiday enjoyable and memorable.

We look forward to our next visit!!  – Sally and Bob, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne
