Hello Mr and Mrs Denham,

I want to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in the cottage. Todd Crag is just the perfect size for the two of us and the dog and was extremely well equipped and so very warm and cosy.

We had a fabulous week enjoying our time doing the fantastic walks in the area that we love do much and the weather was so kind to us. We do hope to visit again next year and would love to use your cottage again.

Thank you for taking the time to write. We are always aware that not everyone is a dog lover, and always try to respect not just the rental owner, but also the next residents.



All being well, we will return again some time, and have already recommended your cottage to both friends and family.



Thank you again, we had a fabulous time.



Alan, Helen, Roxy and Badger. (yes, his name really is Badger!)





Hi,

Just wanted to thank you for the quality of your holiday property. My husband and I stayed at Todd Crag House last week with our daughter and son in law and it was so comfortable, fully equipped and convenient. We have visited the Lake District for many years, but this is the first time I was reluctant to return to our 'patch' in rural Cornwall....feel refreshed....hoping we will be able to return soon.

Dear Maurice



We had the nicest stay at the cottage! It was absolutely lovely - spacious, clean, everything that we could ever need to have a home away from home. So thank you! We would love to come and stay again next year.



Thank you for all your help and for ensuring that we had a wonderful stay.



Best wishes,



Rhian Oct 2014



Hello,

Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful week at Todd Crag House.



It has a lovely cosy, homely feel and is very well equipped with everything needed to enjoy your stay. Great location, so nice to just be able to walk from the door and over the hills or along the river into Ambleside.

Would definitely recommend to others and will come back again ourselves.

Kind regards

Great cottage in a great location.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Todd Crag House, everything we needed, warm and comfortable, appreciated the washing machine, tumble dryer and the daily milk(and other items) delivery. We could walk to town and do many walks from the cottage. Enjoyed walking to Sweden Bridge, then fuelled by "fell top ginger bread" from Apple Pie Bakery up onto Red Screes . Worth the hike for the fabulous views. A visit to Hill Top brought back happy childhood memories of Beatrix Potter's tales. Loved the trip on the steam yacht gondola at Coniston. We did lots of fell walking and need to return as there is so much more to do. Thank you so much for a lovely stay.

Location

From the Owner

We purchased Todd Crag House in 2004 converting it into two self contained apartments. The upper, Todd Crag House has two bedrooms, the lower now known simply as Todd Crag has one bedroom, is very large and retains many of the original features. Considerable expense went into bringing the property up to current standards and restoring original features. Following the first tranche of improvement with the complete restoration of the severely neglected substantial 'servants' accommodation in the grounds. This is now a fully fitted, damp proofed and very popular single bedroom detached cottage which, for the first four years was an 'owner bolthole'. it is now available to let and known as Azalea Cottage, named after the ancient plant rescued from the previously neglected and overgrown gard

Activity and Interests
