    "Location was superb. Easy walk down to the shops, cafes and river of Pooley Bridge, and the ferry terminal. Easy car access to much of that area of the Lake District. The view from the kitchen door is superb, and the one from the sitting room and dining room is OK.The exterior is nothing to write home about. Indeed, the outside area is virtually non-existent. The front is a tiny patch of paving slabs with a few shrubs and a bench (with a little step in front of it, not a big drop as they seemed so keen to warn us about in the listing). Other than that there is the tarmac drive and a bare paving slab path squeezing along the side to a hard area at the back for hanging out laundry, all surrounded by a shabby, falling-down fence. Previous visitors have obviously also come expecting space for children to run around and play, which has led to a big sign near the door warning not to play on the road or anywhere else other than the village sports field behind one of the pubs. This was fine for us given the weather, but I feel it is worth warning people who are attracted by the bunk beds into thinking it is perfect for children.It was possible to get a good wind through the bungalow, which was wonderful in the heatwave we were experiencing.The interior is very dated, to be polite. Actually, it is old enough to give the feel of being dirty and grubby even though it was actually clean. The free-standing fridge behind the kitchen door led to many collisions as opening the fridge door blocked the opening of the door to the rest of the house. The en-suite furnishings were a depressing brown and the majority of furniture throughout looked like a mismatch of things picked up in cheap auctions. The beds in the twin room were seriously uncomfortable, leaving me with back pain every morning (and this from someone who is happy camping). The shower in the main bathroom had the knob on backwards; I spent a very long time trying to work out why it was running cold before I found it mentioned in the visitors' book by a previous holiday-maker.Only one small roll of toilet paper was left in each bathroom, so you should remember to bring your own. Similarly, be prepared with your own cooking oil and all other kitchen staples.In summary, it is in a good location for visiting that part of the Lakes, but you'll want to spend as little time in the actual bungalow as possible."

    "The property was unbelievably small, this wouldn't have been too bad - if it hadn't been so dark. The main wall in the lounge/diner/kitchen was the darkest purple, the kitchen units were dark brown, the furniture was brown. The lighting was so dim, the central light for the lounge area was 3 bulbs, they must have been only 15 watts each, we needed the standard lamp on as well and the kitchen light. One small window by the front door, the window in the kitchen did not get any sun.The bathroom was fine, water pressure was low, but manageable. The bathroom window was large, with the window going down to the sink, there was no voile or blind, the glass was obscure, however often the male owner could be seen outside. Yes, I know the garage and the dogs kennel was there, but it did feel lacking in privacy. The bedroom was nice and light with good bedside lamps.There was no information in the accommodation, no doctors number (which would have been useful) hospital details, nearest pub, takeaway etc. No places to visit info.We felt that even when it was pouring with rain we had to get out, by the Wednesday we felt we couldn't cope any longer (we were getting more an more depressed), so we went back, packed and left early Thursday morning. Some people may like dainty china tea cups and tiny tea spoons, personally I like one large coffee in the morning and then drink water. With the lack of glasses, I don't think they approve of wine either. For the amount of money we paid, we felt it was very expensive."

    "Whilst driving in the dark through the windy roads that lead to Bewcastle, I started to panic that I was in the middle of nowhere and might not have enough petrol to ever leave... However, once I was greeted by the Hole family and got in to the cosy cottage with the gentle noise of sheep and their young and chickens clucking, it didn’t seem to matter. This place is a haven to come and let go of city life. You are surrounded by history and farm life (the last time I woke up to see alpaca out the window was in Peru!). It was a wonderful week of Count Merlot (dog) and me relearning how to breathe fresh air and eat afternoon teas! Just make sure that you get the heaters on, as in Spring it was a little bit nippy! Definitely go on the two walks around Bewcastle and a trip over the border to Langholm was surprisingly fruitful - wonderful marked walks and friendly people! Feb 2011."

    "Allonby is a lovely old seaside town that offers nice clean beaches, the food at the Baywatch is great value, the Codfather offers excellent fish n chips and breakfast food too.The cottage is in an excellent position very near to a spacious beach (when the tide is out there's acres of sandy beach), it is immaculately presented from the outside but we found the cottage to be cold and dark, it would benefit from a refresh, my wife had to clean the cooker before she could use it, there were a lot of cobwebs in the lounge, we found the bed to be too firm (this is subjective of course) the cottage would have to receive a make over for us to stay here again, the one wall in the lounge is a vivid aubergene colour with a very old and tatty picture on it, throw it away and get some nice local photo's up, this cottage could be easily transformed into an excellent holiday base."

    "We wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of work and wow - what a find! Enter a very different world of quiet, peace and nature! The cottage is built amongst the ruins of an old Roman fort - fabulous history all around! The views from the cottage were brilliant - and we had a wonderful time - walking around the area (even though we had torrential rain for most of the week) it was great! The owners were lovely and what a welcome! We were very grateful and surprised by the provisions and lovely homely touches which meant we settled in straight away. Lambing season was fabulous - the alpacas were amazing and the wildlife around the cottage made this a special holiday. We would definitely go back! April 2012."
