    "The whole place. The wood-burning stove! A dishwasher! The weather was just awful but it did not matter - it is January after all - the cottage was warm and cosy and extremely well equipped. Plenty to do around the place and the cottage was well stocked with CDs DVDs, magazines, books etc. We REALLY liked it!"
    Mrs Katy Ovenden, York, North Yorkshire
    "Lovely cosy cottage feel, a really nice location in a lovely quiet village."
    Mrs Gillian Louise Murray, Nuneaton, Leicestershire
    "We loved the cottage- especially the location as the mill stream was just in front of it. It was lovely to have ducks and ducklings coming to be fed morning and night and to have swallows dipping down into the stream catching flies for their supper. It was a quiet village but we had walks on the doorstep, a village shop and two pubs for an evening drink all very relaxing. "
    Mrs Lynne Jones, Rotherham, South Yorkshire
    "Everything I would expect of a Cumbrian cottage. So pretty and right beside a stream with picturesque bridges along the way. Baby ducklings were a treat to watch each morning and evening. Neighbours were friendly and welcomed visitors, it was ideal for any artist like myself. Close to rail and bus facilities so it was easy to get to surrounding resorts without the need to use my car. I welcomed the cottage being dog friendly and it was spotless on arrival and cleaned again midway between a 2 week stay. Well equipped with everything anyone could need and had pubs with good grub within walking distance. Overall a very enjoyable holiday that I would highly recommend."
    Mr & Mrs Garry Jones, Stockport, Cheshire
