We could not have chosen a better home for my daughter’s 30th birthday celebrations.

Despite the weather being a little rainy we had a great first visit to the Lake District. The cottage is everything and more, everything is just stunning.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your stunning home and great location – Maria Redman and family

What a pleasure it was to stay in this beautiful home. It was everything we expected and more. Waking up and opening the balcony doors to the sound of the river and birds was wonderful.

I wish we could have stayed longer. The area is lovely and we will definitely return – Maria Redman

“Beautiful Cottage”

The location is just a mile or so walk away from Coniston Lake or 5 mins in the car. The cottage more than met our expectations and needs in pleasant surroundings. A fantastic garden with the river flowing through.

We are planning to visit again next spring it was such a lovely and relaxing place – Teresa

We have had the most relaxing weekend in Sawmill Cottage.

We felt at home as soon as we arrived on a wet Friday night after a long drive and to find all the lights on was very welcoming, thank you!

Absolutely loved the cottage, the comfort and decor are beautiful, lovely setting. Loved “The Bath” xx

Looking forward to returning soon xx – The Pearson’s – Burton-on-Trent Staffordshire

Had a wonderful stay in the cottage.

It’s in a lovely location and the space really works. We had 2 families staying, each with 2 kids.

“Relaxing time with the family”

We’ve just spent a wonderful five days at Sawmill Cottage, seven of us including our son and daughter and mum and dad all adults and our two fur babies.

The cottage was lovely very tastefully decorated still keeping its unique charm, the garden was beautiful with a stream running by at the end. The cottage is home from home with everything thing there that you would want or need.

We visited Bowness and Ambleside and had some lovely meals at ‘The Flying Pig and The Albert in Bowness, The Apple Pie cafe in Ambleside also Cuckoo Brow Inn in Far Sawrey where the food was excellent. Our two dogs were welcomed in all of them.

The weather was mixed so on a rainy day we booked a spa day at Low Wood Resort and it was fabulous!

I would definitely recommend this lovely cottage and recommend booking with Holiday Cottages Cumbria, Simon was very helpful with any questions and advice. We’ve already booked another cottage with this company for March, can’t wait!! – Wendy Pate

“Great place to stay”

Great place and we enjoyed staying there, we set up badminton on the lawn by the river and mucked about in the river with the teenage kids when the level fell enough.

Lots of trips to Coniston to swim and boat. The hill behind the house is great for walks and an easy pedal over to Grizedale Forest for more adventure – Simon Crabtree
