What a lovely place to stay. We’ve really enjoyed our stay at Charcoal House-very homely and welcoming.
We had a lovely few days exploring the beautiful lakes and surrounding area. Thank you! – Paul & Sharon Smith, Kirkby in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire

“Fantatsic few days in the Lakes”
Charcoal house was a fantastic base for our break in the lakes, even better than the photographs.
The house is filled with quality furnishing and finishes, with everything you can think of at hand.
The walk into the woods with the dog was a definite highlight.
We would thoroughly recommend the house, all details and information provided were spot on – David Page, East Cottingwith, Yorkshire
What a lovely cottage!
A great wee break. Will recommend and return. – Cecilia, Gordon, Finlay & Buddy the dog
