Hi Simon,

Just wanted to pass on positive feedback on our cottage rental last weekend. We loved the cottage and the booking process from start to end was great.

We will certainly be back and look to return for a longer break.

Thanks once again for a lovely break away.

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Lovely trip to the Christmas market at Yew Tree Barn (High Newton) and a relaxing Christmas shop in Kendal – a lovely change from shopping malls back home.

Hopefully we can stay chilled now in the run up to the festive season – Linda and Chris – Lymm, Cheshire

“Picture perfect dog-friendly cottage for a visit to the lakes”

Our family of 5 and our German Shepherd dog had an amazing stay at this picturesque cottage.

I was so pleased to find this cottage is dog-friendly, which was very important for us as Cumbria is one of the best places to visit with your dog.

Despite not having had the best of luck with the weather it was still an amazing trip as we got to come back, from a busy day exploring the lakes to this cozy cottage.

The location of this cottage is perfect for visiting the lake district, with plenty of amazing walks right outside of your doorstep.

The owners have done an amazing job making sure you are well equipped with all the information you need for having absolutely the best stay, from a welcome pack down to personal favorites for local bakeries, best pubs, and local entertainment.

The owners have also provided the cottage with board games and great books for a rainy day or just a lazy evening by the fireplace.

We would definitely love to come back to the lakes and stay here again, it was an amazing holiday! – Linda

“Cosy country cottage”

Carree is a charming and well-equipped country cottage in South Lakeland. It’s perfect for a quiet getaway within easy walking of Holker Hall, Cartmel village and the Cartmel peninsula. It’s great whether you’re interested in gardens, gastronomy or the local bays and birdlife.

For years we’ve driven by South Lakeland and headed for the peaks. What a mistake! South Lakeland has so much to offer and is still within easy reach of Grizedale, Coniston, the Duddon valley and Windermere – Kay

Good morning Simon,

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic break in Carree Cottage.  In no small measure, that was due to the excellent pre-arrival service from you and the thorough information pack that you provided.  You obviously put a lot of work into that and it was much appreciated.

We visited many of the places you suggested and had a splendid time.  We walked on most days and hardly took the car out of the garage.  The weather cooperated too!

A very memorable holiday.  We hope to be back to South Lakeland and Carree Cottage again soon.

Many Thanks,

Keith & Annie Andrews, Telford, Shropshire
