Although we had booked Tulip Cottage, due to a misunderstanding we ended up with Lily Cottage. But I have to say it was beautiful, spotlessly clean and very nicely presented. The owner Ros was very friendly and helpful. I cannot find fault with anything, a lovely peaceful break in beautiful surroundings . We would love to return and this time have Tulip Cottage and its log burner.

A lovely relaxing break in stunning surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Lily cottage for 5 days. The cottage was cosy, warm and spotlessly clean. Lots of room and attention to detail such as fresh lilys in the lounge. We couldn't have wished for prettier surroundings, garden was a treat with a river and several bridges, would highly recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful break .

Fabulous location and beautifully presented cottage..

  • 5 of 5

Set in its own well maintained grounds this is a beautifully presented, comfortable cottage with everything you could wish for! The owner's also live on site and were helpful and friendly. The owners had left maps and recommendations of local pubs and restaurants and, of course, the Lake District provided a fantastic back drop to a memorable holiday. Very happy to recommend the cottage and will definitely be visiting again.

Quiet, well equipped cottage in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lily Cottage for a week in the second week of August. Cottage ideally located for exploring the Lake District, and only 5 miles up the road from Kendal, where you can find everything you need to be self sufficient.

The cottage is well equipped, and clean and tidy. The owner Rosyln Flackett and her husband, made us feel really welcome when we arrived. The location is not far from the A6, but is still quiet enough to feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. A river runs past the property, and the gardens are very pretty and well maintained.

Everything is provided for you. There is little or no Mobile signal here, so its great that they offer free WiFi in the properties to enable you to stay in touch with the outside world. If there was one complaint, it would be that the WiFi signal appeared to drop on a regular basis, and eventually found that if you turned wifi off and then on again, it sometimes rectified the problem. Having said that, this place was perfect for our honeymoon retreat. I liked the location as we were away from the crowds, and only a 20/30 minute drive from Windermere and the entrance to the Lakes.

Would highly recommend this location, as it was a home from home, spacious clean and tidy. If and when we return to the lakes, we would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry that mobile reception is variable, unfortunately O2 is not good in the countryside here apparently better in the cities. EE, vodaphone, orange etc better. Luckily most modern mobile phones pick up the wifi. The wifi usually works, but I wish the capacity could be made higher, as during busy times especially when the school Children are using capacity the signal cuts and returns. We pay for business broadband, much more expensive than resendential broadband and should have priority for speed etc hence much better than most in the area, usually over double the speed. Obviously we are longing for good high speed broadband to be installed. New infrastructure is being installed near to us. We do our best to continue making improvements wherever possible. It was lovely having you to stay. Best wishes for a happy future for both of you. A lovely Happy Couple. Roslyn

Well what can I say, never been here before but we will definitely be back. Phenomenal grounds, amazingly scenic and a lovely cottage with very welcoming owners. Me and my partner honestly could not fault it. It was perfect from start to finish. To anyone, definitely recommend it. The pictures don't even do it justice, it's fantastic!!
