A cosy cottage with everything you need!

Like a lot of previous guest we didn’t cook anything as there are so many places to eat out… Great!

A good location to, will most certainly recommend to others.

Lovely cottage, had a wonderful long weekend!

Thank you for our milk, tea and coffee.

Having stayed at two of your cottages already, this one did not disappoint.

Our dog Harvey loved the garden and the long walks.

Hopefully back next autumn. – Steph, David, Sammy & Harvey the dog

We have really enjoyed our week in The Lakes.

A great cottage for the four of us – clean, comfortable and warm.

The Fat Flour bakery is highly recommended for bread, cakes and pizza – all delicious!

The walk from Grange-over-Sands to Cartmel was lovely.

“Hidden Gem of Cark”

We stayed in this super cottage for two weeks and really enjoyed everything it has to offer.

Lovely and clean, really good quality beds and bedding so had a excellent nights sleep and always felt well rested.

Everything you need in a cottage for the whole of your stay was provided and the kitchen is really spacious so very enjoyable to cook those lovely meals you never seem to get the time to do in your busy life.

The fact that it is pet friendly made it even better for us and it is so well situated to visit so many places, and lovely to have a warm and welcoming cottage to come back to after a busy day exploring.

Will definitely be back as even after two weeks still didn’t manage to see everything we wanted – Pam Jenkins, St. Helens

Thanks for everything. – Pam, Graham & Megan Jenkins with Bramble the dog

What a wonderful cottage!

We have really enjoyed a very much needed weekend break and will definitely stay again.

The weather was beautiful yesterday so we visited Sandscale Haws National Nature Reserve in the morning then Ulverston and Fell Foot.

Today it’s Windermere, Ambleside and Grasmere before heading back home. Many thanks for such a great place to stay. – Mel, Andy, Eve & Lionel the dog

A fantastic weekend break. The cottage is lovely with everything we needed.

The weather was glorious which allowed for some great walks with amazing views Howbarrow was a great walk from the door with lunch at the Pig and Whistle in Cartmel – a perfect introduction to the joys of The Lakes for toddler!

Great pizza from Fat Flour. – Katherine, Lawrence, Kathryn & George with Jilly the dog

“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
