About Roslyn Flackett

Roslyn and John bought Low Jock Scar in 2007.

We have continued to improve the property and cottages for over 8 years. 2015 achieving the gold award for Butterfly cottage from visit England. The cottages have improved from comfortable 4 star to high 4 star with most aspects considered 5 star.

The property has a special energy which has been enjoyed by many people over the years.

The river, bridges and loved garden create a special place to relax, replenish and recharge. Sitting by the river, enjoying the sunshine and a glass of wine has been a much enjoyed pleasure.

Our Guest comment books are filled with lovely comments, and hundreds of "looking forward to returning" comments. Many of our bookings are from returning clients and recommendations.

We live in the house by the river

Beautiful cottage in wonderful surroundings, well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the better cottages we have stayed in. The cottage was spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen equipment was very good, plenty of utensils and crockery.

The hosts were on hand but never intrusive.

The property was very beautiful and situated in an idyllic setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful short break in this beautiful cottage. It was well furnished and very comfortable. The garden area was in a perfect setting with a lovely area adjacent to the stream to sit and relax. My wife and I have stayed in many cottages throughout the Lake District and also the rest of the UK, and this was definitely one of the best.

I was able to walk from the door to Stavely via the Longsleddale valley, with great views overlooking Kendal and Burneside.

Many thanks, we hope to return very soon.

Relaxing Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a lovely stay in Butterfly cottage. There was only the two of us but there would be ample room even if all bedrooms were in use. The cottage is cosy and has all the amenities needed for a self sufficient stay. The location is beautiful. Thoroughly recommend!

Butterfly Cottage - 18th June-25th June 2016

  • 5 of 5

I booked this holiday last October (2015), for a holiday with my Mum and a friend, for a holiday for my 70th birthday, which is in August. We had a wonderful holiday, and had my daughter and family (who live in Kendal) for lunch on the the Sunday (Fathers Day) as well as Brian's 75th birthday(on the 18th June), and my early 70th birthday(August) and had hoped to have had a BBQ in the wonderful grounds of Butterfly Cottage, but this was not to be, but a good day was enjoyed by all.

The scenery was spectacular and the weather was very kind to us (except the Sunday when we were celebrating).We could find no fault with the cottage, my Mother who is 93 had the ground-floor en-suite bedroom, Brian used the double room upstairs and I used the 3rd bedroom (also upstairs). We had several walks nearby, and I personally would love to return to Butterfly Cottage next year for a return holiday. Sadly, my Mum has decided that the journey from Gloucester to the holiday cottage is a journey too far at her age, so even though I would love to return, I'm not sure we will be able to.

I would highly recommend Butterfly Cottage to anyone who asked me; the cottage, the grounds and the walks etc., were absolutely wonderful.
