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

Anna - verified booking

"We are a family of two adults, a teenager and a toddler. The Bothy was a perfect getaway for us all. It's a ten-minute drive from the M6 and about 20 minutes to Penrith. We visited Windermere which took a little over an hour, though there was snow so we were driving with caution. The accommodation is lovely and the photos on the website really don't do it justice. The zip-wire in the garden kept us all entertained and we enjoyed walking around to see the pond with the swans. The crazy golf course was covered in snow when we were there but it looked like it would have been fun for the family. The kitchen is one of the most well-stocked rental property kitchens we'd ever seen - there were more appliances than we have in our own home! The house was warm, despite the weather and there were plenty of books and board games to keep us occupied in the evenings. There are two bathrooms, though no bath. The owners are lovely and strike the perfect balance between being welcoming hosts and leaving you to have your own space. We cannot recommend The Bothy highly enough and very much hope to go back again."

"Cottage on a farm with another cottage next-door and owner in farm-house on site. The cottage is in the middle of nowhere and it snowed when we went in February. Fantastic views of night-sky from garden. It was modern inside, spotlessly clean, comfortable sofas, well equipped with games for kids. Some thoughtful extras - wine, sweets. Easy to use, cosy feeling optimist fire. Our main problem was that the biomass heating came on in the night in the bedroom. It was vibrating and making a loud low hum and could not be turned off, so we couldn't sleep on the first night. It was a mistake that was sorted out quickly the next day when we spoke to the owner's son. We had chosen the property from the description/photos which said there was a large wooden play area just outside the cottage. The children were looking forward to this, but unfortunately it had recently been removed to make room for the garden for the larger property next door. It should have been changed on the description but it had not been."

"The milking parlour where we stayed was lovely warm and cozy and having our dogs with us made it extra special. On the down side we should have done more research before we started our holiday. Cumbria is amazing breath taking scenery,but little for us do apart from drive to a different town each day as we are not as active as we once were. We could not park in the village and would not have been able to walk anywhere had we been able to do so. We did find a lovely pub about 9 mikes away, The Elks Head in Whitfield near Hexham. The food was excellent lovely staff and the other customers were very friendly. We went there twice for meals."

Jacky - verified booking

"Had a lovely week at the Bothy although the weather was a mix of sunshine, showers and occasional heavy rain. Plenty of places to visit including Carlisle, the northern Lakes and Penrith. Hutton in the Forest is well worth a visit as the house tour is very interesting. The single track lanes round about are not for the faint hearted especially if there is a tractor coming the other way but the peace and quiet of the cottage makes up for the lack of walkable attractions. There was everything in the cottage you could possibly need including a library of books and games. Many thanks to Alison and Richard for their kind welcome."

Linlyan - verified booking

"Spent an unforgettable week, starting with the lovely owners who were very welcoming and helpful, even giving us a bottle of bubbly to help us relax! The house was great, two very comfortable bedrooms with fantastic views, a comfortable sitting room with a working fireplace, logs supplied! Great kitchen and bathroom with absolutely everything thought of. The garden was very pretty with fantastic views across the valley, could see the steam train going up and down, and the sunsets! The cottage was central in a great location, good walking all around, and a short drive from lots of lovely places; we loved it all."
