Dairymaids Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to stay. We only had a short stay of 3 days but found the accommodation excellent. Very clean, spacious and everything well catered for, even bath robes provided to use with the hot tub. The location is ideal for the Southern/Western Fells, Wasdale Head only 15 mins drive away where we had planned our walks.

Good local pub, Victoria Hotel, with great food and local beers.

We`ll be back!
