    "I have just returned from a fantastic long weekend at Jenkin Hill Lodge with my son. The location was fabulous and the cottage had everything that we needed. Everything about it was perfect and we will definitely be returning. The cottage is very spacious and was very clean. My son did not want to leave. There was lots of local things to do with children."

    "We absolutely loved our four days in this cottage. It was much bigger than we anticipated and was truly a home from home, with everything you needed. The area is beautiful and very convenient for visiting the North Lakes. You can walk from the cottage to the Whinlatter Visitor Centre - uphill - but a lovely walk with lots of trails to explore from there.We would definitely stay here again."
