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.

What makes this cottage unique

A lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We were given a very warm welcome, including vases of daffodils because I had mentioned them when we booked Tulip cottage. That kind touch set the scene for our stay.

The cottages are set close to the hosts' home, but they walked the line between friendliness and being too 'present' very well. I cannot emphasis enough what super hosts Roslyn and John were.

The grounds in which the three cottages are set are lovely. The well established garden, even in March, had plenty of colour and there is a woodland area to explore. Be aware, as mentioned in the cottage details, that there is an easily accessible river, so young children would need supervision. For us, though, it added to the charm.

Tulip Cottage itself is designed for two people. The bed was very comfortable, rooms were decorated and maintained to a high standard and furnishings and equipment could not be faulted.

There is a detailed information file which we found useful and the visitors' book showed numerous examples of people who returned more than once. We also hope to be able to return soon. What a find!

Set in beautiful surrounding, these attractive cottages are perfect for a quiet break away!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Tulip cottage which was absolutely perfect for the two of us. It was a perfect base for exploring the Lake District and just a short drive to Kendal with easy access to a local supermarket. We cooked several meals and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed.

We absolutely loved the log burner and made good use of it during our stay.

We definitely intend to come back again! This place could not have been more perfect! Highly recommend :-)

The property was amazing! Very clean and everything you could want.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were greeted by the owner who told us about the local area and made suggestions of good restaurants and walks in the area.

The cottage itself was everything we were looking for. It had lovely surroundings, was very clean and provided us with everything we required.

The fire had been made and lit for our arrival, giving us a warm and cosy place on a cold day.

It's safe to say we shall be visiting again!

Tulip cottage is a home from home

  • 5 of 5

If you are thinking of booking this cottage, don't hesitate. We loved this wee cottage and only wished we could have stayed longer. The cottage feels secluded and in its own wee world. The surroundings are immaculate and well kept. I'll definitely be booking again and would recommend it to family and friends.
