    "This was repeat visit - cottage and owners fantastic."
    Mrs Gwenda Hinton, Staines-upon-Thames, Surrey
    "We had a wonderful week in this secluded and Oh, so quiet farm cottage. There were stunning mountain views, beautiful walks from the door and lovely hosts! There were very pretty bedrooms and a heated floor in the bathroom! The log burner really warm. We saw gorgeous sunsets over the mountains, and the moonlight was stunning! Thank you for a lovely holiday! We will be returning!"

    "Low Arnside is perfect for those who just want to walk from their own front door onto the fells.It is comfortably furnished and provides a cosy place to chill out,after a day's walking,in front of the wood burner. We felt so relaxed snuggling between the lovely bed linen looking out onto beautiful views when we awoke in the morning.The owners were friendly and helpful and the cottage is well provided.We would recommend this cottage to anyone who loves the fells and hates the rat race!"
    Mr Ian Ohnstad, Dorchester, Dorset
    "Superb location, fantastic property and great hosts."
    Mr Christopher J Hodder, Beaworthy, Devon
    "Liked the isolation, availability to The Fells and its beauty. After holidaying in the Lakes for 30 years it can be said, with confidence, that this is the best! We will return."

    "Fabulous location, a really peaceful getaway. We loved the originality of the property and the way it was presented. Great hosts and a warm welcome. Simply excellent!"
    Mr T Butler, Shrewsbury, Shropshire
    "An excellent location, wonderful views & it was peaceful. The grandchildren liked the freedom and thought it was fantastic, especially the rope swing."
    Rev Richard Dengate, Peasmarsh, East Sussex
    "Wonderfully sited with stupendous views and access to walks. Pleased that a dog is allowed, and cottage owners are so helpful. Enjoyed the rustic but comfortable and interesting facilities."
    Mr Woods, Macclesfield, Cheshire
    "We loved the secluded location and the wonderful views. As a mountain biker it was fantastic to have some excellent riding straight from the door. The wood burning stove was well received and our hosts were really welcoming and helpful."

    "This cottage is brilliantly located for walks straight from the door. Although a public footpath runs about 30 yards from the door we only saw other people at the weekend. During the week we felt like we had the whole fell to ourselves. Hawkshead via Sunny Brow was only 1hr 20mins walk away (for provisions from the CO-OP!) and we came back via a beautifully frozen Tarn Hows. We walked to Ambleside via Loughrigg Fell and that only took 2 hrs. Plenty of other walks kept us occupied for the week including Black Crag which you can see from the cottage and gives wonderful views of it's much higher neighbours. The cottage itself is a lovely lakeland building adjoining a barn - we had cows for neighbours. A seperate barn faces the cottage and this housed logs and coal for the log burner in the living room. This is the cosiest room in the cottage. The rest is heated by storage heaters. It did take a while for the rest of the house to lose its chill - the cottage had been empty the week before our visit so I think this impacted on our temperature. Jan very kindly had the fire lit for us when we arrived and Martin made sure we knew where the logs and coal were. They were perfect landlords - available but not intrusive. We had a brilliant week finished off perfectly by a foot of snow for the day we left. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who loves walking in Cumbria."

    "We felt welcomed and comfortable in this lovely relaxing cottage."

    "The farmhouse was wonderful, exactly what we wanted. The owners were very friendly and helpful and it was great having a limitless supply of logs for the wood-burner each evening. What a fabulous, cosy house!"

    "Oh, this cottage is all I ever imagined a Lakeland retreat should be! Situated in an elevated, scenic position, enveloped by the beauty of the surrounding fells, this cottage is chocolate box Lakeland. I felt I was living a little piece of Lakeland history. Even with the wind and rain, it still felt cosy and authentic. I could just sense, and perhaps catch a tiny glimpse of what life would have been like in bygone days on a solitary Lakeland farm. One early morning, I stepped out of the front door, which was to be ours for a few days, and there was the most stunning, captivating view. I could not believe it was real. I wanted to savour it, drink it in, and keep it forever. It was perfect peace. Just me, and the fells before me. I could really feel a personal empathy with the place. The uninterrupted quietness was therapeutic, invigorating and a tonic. If I could move in, I would! If you want to experience the true essence of Lakeland, then this is it! This cottage is set apart on its own, being detached, so it is rather like having your own farm for a few days! We could sometimes see the sheep gathering to be fed from the cottage window. There are walks in all directions from the front door and we did every one of them. If you are a keen walker, there is no need to use the car if you are well organised. We took ready/pre-cooked meals with us and a whole heap of food so we did not need to go to a shop. I really did not want this holiday to end. I have dreamed of living in a Lakeland farmhouse ever since. Perhaps one day my dream will come true........."
