Fantastic stay in this amazing cottage!

The facilities and layout were perfect for our stay and the care that has been put into the decoration of the place was really noticed.

Would recommend to all and would love to come back – Mike, Liz, Anthony, Kirsty, Nat, Tom and Hetti with dogs

Wonderful cottage!

Well-equipped, layout is great and to an excellent standard. Ideal location to tour Coniston and Windermere Lakes. Would recommend to all who ask – The Lukes

We travelled with a four-month-old to a gorgeous place!

Lovely inside and out. Loved the quality bedding. The towels felt like hotel quality.

The garden is pretty and the balcony even better.

Want to come back! – The Starrs

Beautiful cottage done very tastefully to an excellent standard.

Well-equipped with everything you could possibly want. Beds extremely comfortable and we will certainly go home well rested!

Location has been ideal for us, we’ve had great adventures and loved the village of Grasmere.

All in all we’ve had a fabulous time and will highly recommend Charcoal House.

***** from us, thank you – Tony, Anna, Christina & Hamish, Glasgow & Aberdeen

I’ve had a great time with my parents and Grandparents. My little legs had lots of big adventures and I am going to miss the warm spot beside the Aga, woof woof!

We have had a lovely long weekend at Charcoal House.

Very cute and tidy house, living room and bedrooms are a great size and comfortable. We had a great nights sleep every night.

We were lucky with the clear weather and enjoyed walks with the dog and BBQs every day.

We were celebrating an anniversary so it was great for spending time as a family and playing games. All in all a great break!

Thank you – The Meadows family

What a fabulous house to live in for a week.

We were celebrating an anniversary and birthday and generally enjoying being together.

Plenty of room, the beds are sooo comfy. Very warm. We loved the Aga and the split back door – all so traditional.

Sorry to leave – we have enjoyed getting to know this area a lot more, and reaquainting ourselves with memories of past holidays.

The Red Lion is great – very friendly and we were lucky enough to go on Thursday night for music night. A great selection of musicians playing varied music – very special (second Thursday of each month).

Thanks once again – The Bentleys

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely house.

We thoroughly enjoyed getting away with the family, lots of great walking (Old Man twice)!

The house is lovely, sociable, warm(!) yet still cosy. Beds are so comfy.

A great few days. Thank you – Emma, Rob, Ben, Jess, Ad, Helen with Gracy & Toby the dogs, Didcot

Charcoal House exceeded our expectations in every way which is really appreciated given pictures can often be deceptive and other accommodations have ended up being ‘less rather than more’.

It is so nice to come somewhere with quality furnishings, rather than cheap bare bones.

We’ve had a really lovely break in such a beautiful part of the world and the property has been very much part of the experience.

Thank you and we hope to return in the future – Darren, Stuart & Nellie, Chichester with Nathan & Matilda, Durham

We’ve had a lovely week at Charcoal House and were really sad to leave.

The location of the property was great! Only a short walk to the Coniston Water and the fells.

Charcoal House was lovely, Clean, warm and inviting and exceeded all our needs, a great place to catch up with family and friends.

We were provided with lots of information on the area walks, places to eat and drink etc from the owner. Can’t wait to book again! Paula

Wonderful house and gardens.

Very spacious, well-equipped kitchen lovely views and a great location.

The Steam X in Coniston was fab as was Chesters By The River.

All in all a wonderful short break, we will be back. The Grahams, Wellingtons and Bells (8 go mad in Cumbria)
