Hi Simon,

We had a really good time, the weather helped, with the river at the end of the garden being a really beautiful feature of this cottage.

We also tried some of your restaurant suggestions, with the Manor House and Base (the taster menu is really nice) being our favourites.

The BBQ and outdoor dining are also a nice touch.

As well as walking in the area, we had a couple of enjoyable sessions kayaking/canoeing on Coniston.

I’ve no doubt that we’ll be back again.

Cheers, Paul (from Canterbury, Kent)

“Idyllic few days”

First time visit for us. We booked the cottage for ourselves but then invited our friends to join us.

We arrived in sunshine and it pretty much stayed with us, bonus.

As soon as you open the cottage door you are met with spacious luxury and comfortable furnishings, quality fixtures and fittings in the kitchen and bathrooms.

The cottage for us as four friends was perfect as it allowed us all to have our own space as the bedrooms are in two separate sections of the cottage.

The setting is idyllic and so wonderful to sit in the sun at the bottom of the beautiful garden by the river just listening to the water and watching the different birds.

The large table on the decking is equally great for evening drinks in the sun.

The beds are extremely comfortable and the whole place is obviously maintained to a very high standard.

My husband and myself particularly enjoyed a late night drink on the balcony just absorbing the peace and the night sky. I thoroughly recommend this cottage and it’s owner and hope to return in the future – Jane Robertson – South Anston, Sheffield, South Yorkshire

“Simply Perfect”

First time at this cottage but not the first booking with Simon. Perfect location if you want peace and tranquillity with lots of space and a stunning garden with direct access to the river Crake. High-end fixtures and fittings. Everything you could ask for if you want a family or extended friends break away.

Within 15 mins of Coniston village for walks etc. and only 5-6 minutes drive to the southern shoreline of the lake (Coniston Water) if you want to use that, which we did for kayaking swimming and boarding – Kevin Horsley, Blyth, Northumberland

“Fantastic holiday cottage”

We have had a great week. Lovely cottage immaculate and very well presented.

Grandkids loved the garden and stream and had a lovely time.

Lots to do and see in the surrounding area. We had visits every day from the Dipper on the balcony.

Will definitely be back. Highly recommend – Sophie Grant, Gloucester

We’ve had a lovely stay! Sitting by the river with a brew and a bacon butty was dreamy!

Amazing stay at a beautiful property that has the bonus of its own stream.

Stunning rooms, ample parking, ideal location and featured on The Hairy Bikers.

Would highly recommend staying here, from booking to communication and customer service all of high standard.

Would visit again. Perfect for families or friends as all rooms are onsuite and definitely has the wow factor! Thanks Simon for the level of detail and care – Susan Dean
