Bookings have been coming in fast - so fast in fact that at the time of writing, we only have one week available - over Christmas - after that it's 2022!!


All legal Covid-19 related restrictions have now been removed in England so visitors will find all the attractions are open in the Lake District. Many, very sensibly in our view,  are retaining some relevant measures and social distancing & this may mean your having to book in advance. You'll find links and contact details of many of the attractions on our 'things to do' web page and some good recommendations on our review pages (Thanks to those who have detailed these). 


Visitors here can be reassured that we will continue to maintain a strict cleaning and sanitising regime in the cottage. One of the innovations we've made to minimise the amount of paper so we can keep the cottage well and truly sanitised, is the creation of an online guest information pack provided to everyone who has booked with us. This has allowed us to provide up to date information which can be accessed as an app or stored on a computer. 


It has been good to be able to welcome back quite a few repeat visitors and to be able to meet a number of folks coming here for the first time. 



If you want a restful holiday in this lovely part of the world, then we would be pleased to hear from you. 


As always, we look forward to welcoming old friends and new........

Over the years many of our visitors have enjoyed exploring the beauties of the Lake District on foot or on two wheels so we are especially pleased to have been awarded these two Visit England's Welcome badges again. Those of you wanting to explore on foot will find walking to suit all abilities and stamina: from mountain climbing to gentle strolls. You can access many lovely walks from the cottage gate & if you plan your route carefully, you'll find many delightful refreshment stops.


For those who prefer two wheels, either bring your own bike or hire one nearby (See our location page for bike hire details).  If you are bringing your bike, it would be helpful if you would let us know in advance so we can ensure a secure, undercover space is available.


Internet Access: After a long village campaign, we finally got an ultra fast fibre internet network in the village with fibre to the premises. The fibre is now connected here so we are now able to offer our visitors blistering internet speeds of around 140 Mbps - assuming you have equipment capable of dealing with these speeds which are faster than in most towns and cities.

What peace and beautiful scenery - no wonder writers and artists were so inspired.
