What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Cumbria To Rent.

Jennifer - verified booking

"We spent a very enjoyable fortnight at the cottage, and found the property to be full of character and tastefully modernised. The setting is beautiful; very peaceful but not isolated, and the cottage is surrounded by attractive countryside. The owner Julie was very friendly and welcoming, and we really appreciated the welcome pack provided that included extras such as wine and chocolates. The use of a washing machine and a large outhouse for bike storage was very helpful, and it was great being able to use the wood burner and control the central heating ourselves. The kitchen appliances were easy to use, and as we were there for 2 weeks it was a bonus to have use of a chest freezer in the outhouse, as well as the freezer compartment within the kitchen fridge. In general the kitchen was well equipped for every day cooking/meal preparation, however in our opinion there were insufficient cups and other crockery items; we gave this feedback directly to the owner and she was happy to take on board for the future. The cottage is ideally located for country walks, and we particularly enjoyed being able to leave the car behind and walk to the village of Castle Carrock or the nearby Gelt Wood. Other places such as Brampton, Lanercost Priory, Birdoswold Roman Fort and Carlisle, were all easily accessible by car, as was Alston. Overall we had a relaxing stay in the cottage and found local people to be very friendly and welcoming - hopefully we will return another time. (A point to note about the layout of the cottage is that the small bedroom can only be accessed via the master bedroom, and they are separated by a single door.)"

"What a fantastic cottage! We had the best time staying in S75658 and didn't want to leave. The village was quiet and such a friendly community - we were there for Halloween and our daughter enjoyed handing out sweets to the locals who came around (we put a carved pumpkin outside so they knew they could come knocking) and then went to a few houses who were very welcoming and friendly. The local walking is great and its not far from Lacy's caves, which we were very excited to find were accessible again after previously being closed due to flooding. Local shop (driving distance) in the next village of Langwathby was great, and Penrith nearby has Morrisons, Aldi, Sainsbury's etc. so plenty of options available! There is also a lovely looking cafe a short walk from the house, but unfortunately we were so busy out walking the lakes every day that we didn't get a chance to go and check it out. As with all areas of the lake district, it involves driving...but that is expected anywhere you stay. But as far as the cottage is concerned, it is an exceptionally well equipped cottage which absolutely everything you could need. The hosts are great and were around if we had any questions as they live nearby. The icing on the cake was being able to stay in such a lovely property, relaxing by the fire at the end of the day with the dogs snoring away at our feet. Our week staying at S75658 was fantastic and we cannot wait to go again!"

"I think there is little point doing reviews unless they are honest.The upstairs and kitchen of S75658 are fine, but the lounge and ‘sun room’ are drab and depressing.The garden is perfect for dogs, but the parking leaves a lot to be desired, as the farmer who keeps his equipment next door is in and out with heavy equipment from early morning.There is not a shop in the village ( not unusual ) but there not being a welcome pack of basics was. We visit several cottages each year and have never been to one that didn’t provide at least bread, milk and usually a bottle of wine. So go prepared. That said the shop in the next village is wonderful and living in a Peak District Village ourselves I thought it was a wonderful facility. There is building work taking place locally even Saturday and Sunday but the company we rented from just said it didn’t bother the owners! Unfortunately , it bothered us as we are used to peace and quiet. We visited most of the Lakes which was the purpose of the visit. The cottage is described as detached but it seems to be attached to the farm buildings behind."

"I always send reviews and read all when looking to hire a holiday cottage. I noted there were many excellent reviews but only one bad review. As there were many excellent reviews I decided to book the cottage based on majority. The result was, that this is probably the best cottage I have ever stayed in and there have been many over the years. Everything was clean and in excellent order the fixtures and fittings were of superior quality. The lovely owners Daniel and Winter were on hand when needed but were never intrusive. I am completely puzzled by the one bad review and can confirm that the comments made, were completely unjustified. However I accept that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. In conclusion, my wife and I and our dog Casey had a really good holiday and the weather was also kind. I would therefore recommend this cottage to anyone, and will be back for another holiday in the future."

Stephen - verified booking

"One of the nicest cottages we’ve rented and we have rented many over the years. The overriding word here is quality. From the top end kitchen and utensils to the super comfortable beds and tasteful fittings throughout. Spotlessly clean on arrival means you can just settle right in and don’t have to properly wash dishes etc. which we often have had to do in previous rentals. The enclosed garden was perfect for our dog, the boot room at the back of the house is perfect for bikes or walking gear and Daniel and Winter were the perfect laid back friendly hosts. Little Salkeld is a great little quite farming village with friendly locals and is only a short drive to the nearest Nisa a couple of miles away. Penrith is about 15 mins away for anything else you might need. Plenty of excellent pub/restaurants within a very short drive. Cottage ideally placed for access to Lake District and North York’s dales."
