About Jonathan Vaillant

Hello. My partner and I moved to beautiful Borrowdale after holidaying here since Childhood. It was a dream that came true after living in the Midlands for 39 years. I often still say to my children that I still cant believe I live here.

Jonathan Vaillant purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Jonathan Vaillant chose England

Just look at our pictures!

Another wonderful week in this beautiful place. Beautiful weather - a whole week with not one drop of rain. Thank you once again for providing perfect accommodation, welcome, views, wildlife, walks...see you soon...Chris, Ian & Byrony (July)



Our 6th stay at Riverside which really has become a home from home with every comfort provided for. Thank you to you all for your warm welcome and thoughtfulness throughout - we had a lovely stay with you. The red squirrels have been so entertaining as have the families of birds all round the garden. Lovely walks, lovely views and good weather too. See you next year...Trevor & Teresa (June)



The most beautiful Borrowdale retreat we've ever stayed in.. thank you... Nicky, Seamus & Hester (April)
