Lovely little cottage with great views from the conservatory.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our short stay here. House well equpped, and I appreciated the walk in shower. Best bit for me though was the conservatory opening out onto a patio and the well fenced garden. It was lovely to comfortably sit here in the evening looking out towards the hills above Bassenthwaite. Much appreciated.

A lovely country retreat

  • 4 of 5

Lovely clean place. Everything you could need within the kitchen. We had children staying and Morag was able to provide a high chair and cot.

When we had questions about anything Morag was able to answer within minutes. Lovely quiet spot with great views and easy to access Workington.
