A great place to stay
We had an amazing stay at this property and our host Janet was a fantastic host.
Very comfortable and cozy, well equipped in lovely countryside.
We stayed for three nights and came away wanting to stay longer.
The cottage was clean and comfortable in a very pretty part of the Lakes. Great for a cozy night in by the Log burning stove, or a pleasant walk to the village pub which offers really great food and well kept ale.
We are very happy to recommend.
Cosy and well maintained
A really cosy and well turned out property. Fixtures and fittings to a very good standard and excellent well appointed kitchen with full range of equipment. Great having a back door into scullery/utility room for muddy boots. Loved having the fire on, a real treat. Owner very friendly, helpful and accessible when the kitchen smoke alarm decided to go off for no particular reason! I did mention that the hot water didn't seem to last long enough to have a full bath :( but I would go back and stay in this cottage.
A good cottage, unfortunately we had to leave early
The Cottage has a rustic charm, Janet is a very welcoming hostess.
The Cottage is well equipped in the kitchen and utility room, The Blacksmiths Arms is a super pub in the village, unfortunately during winter due to the cottages remoteness it would not be an easy walk to visit (we drove the car).
The parking situation could be improved however as Janet said there will soon be a new road to the cottages replacing the farm track hopefully the parking can be addressed then.
Beautiful and peaceful
This is a beautiful peaceful cottage.
Spotless clean.has everything you require and more.
Janet and her family are so lovely.
Thankyou Janet for the best weekend in ages.
A warm and friendly retreat
Although it’s slightly bumpy ride along the final km to Martha’s Cottage, what a delightful place to stay. The gîte is set on one side of a courtyard which is shared with the family who work this fully operating hill farm. The underfloor heating, as we stepped shoeless onto the sitting room carpet, felt immediately welcoming; along with the warm smile of our host Janet, we knew we were in for a pleasant stay. The kitchen is well equipped, the two shower rooms were impeccably clean and our own double bed wonderfully comfortable. The upstairs bedroom, had we required it, would have been a perfect hideaway, with its own bathroom. It’s only a 15-minute walk to the local pub, also a place of charm, with log fires and friendly staff. There’s lots of local walking too, although we opted for the short 25-minute drive over Ulpha for an ascent of Scafell Pike. On our return an unexpected bottle of wine awaited us, kindly bought by Janet, who’d tuned into the fact that we were celebrating a birthday. Our only regret was that we were only there for three nights - next time we must stay for longer.
