    Mr J ‐ 4 Nov 2018
    "This is without doubt the best accommodation I have stayed at in the Lake District by some distance as well.The accommodation was spotlessly clean warm and cosy, everything you could possibly need was catered for down to some very nice touches, such as some milk in the fridge and cleaning and washing facilities provided for.The area was beautiful, absolutely stunning scenery and only short walk away down to Wastwater lake itself.The location of the accommodation was within easy travelling distance should you want to travel further afield to explore different parts of the Lakes and beyond.Quite simply a wonderful relaxing and very enjoyable week in the Lakes made all the more pleasurable because of the quality of the accommodation, the weather was even good for the most part as well.I returned home very happy with my batteries full recharged.I will certainly book this accommodation again when I am on holidays in the Lake District."

    "Location is everything and Buckbarrow has an ideal location for a good break from the maddening crowd. Local amenities are a car ride away (hence 7/10 score) but all fine (10/10) when you get there. Lack of a mobile signal is a joy."

    "a very modern apartment with everything you could possibly need. the owners have really made this cottage a very enjoyable place to stay. views are fantastic."

    "Second time to Greendale, but this flat was better than the previous. All on offer was as stated in the brochure. Would happily go back."
    Ruth ‐ 18 Aug 2018
    "A few more pieces of cutlery, mugs and weighing scales would be good. We have had better in other cottages and we go a lot. With a dishwasher you need more if you are to make use of it. Scales to weigh pasta please. Otherwise lovely apartment. Thank you."

    "Nice cottage in a remote area. Great for walking but quite a way from local amenities such as shops, pubs and restaurants"
    Paul ‐ 14 Jul 2018
    "The flat is in a great position for walkers, some of England's highest peaks are within walking distance (but a car to the dale head will knock 5 miles off the day). The cottage was very clean and sofas and beds comfortable. Bedding/towels of good quality. Bottled water (it was a very hot week) and starter tea/coffee/milk on arrival. Owner very willing to help when contacted. The kitchen area is smallish but very neat and ample. A freezer would be a benefit but space is limited in the fitted kitchen. The lake is a 1/2 mile walk, and pleasant to wander to after tea with a bottle (+insect repelant!) as the screes take the evening light. Shops and pubs etc are a fair car drive away, but do try the Gosforth bakery."
    Andrew ‐ 18 Jun 2018
    "Excellent, well equipped, comfortable apartment in a stunning location, with walking access to all the beautiful and challenging hills aroug wasdale. Personally I don't go there for the local ameneties, which is why its score is low, in fact the complete opposite. You can walk to a pub but it'll take 3/4 hour. Even when the electricty or water fail (rarely, honestly), they're back on within hours and all part of the experience away from our too comfortable lives. Fantastic, we'll be back. Cosy, warm, clean and homely."

    "A lovely first floor apartment, located about a 5 minute walk away from Wastwater. You need to phone the owner for key collection instructions a few days before your holiday. This was very straightforward and the owner is very helpful. The cottage was clean & comfortable, with good parking, excellent wifi, and in a great position to begin a number of walks directly from the door. Unless you plan to eat out at the pubs within driving distance, it’s best to bring all your food with you, but you can pick up provisions in Gosforth 6 miles away if necessary. The small shop on the NT campsite at Wasdale Head (3 miles away) also stocks basic provisions. Great walks up Scafell Pike, Yewbarrow, Whin Rigg, Illgill Head, Buckbarrow and Seatallan, plus walks in the local woodland and on both sides of Wast Water kept us busy all week. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and would definitely return."

    "Such a lovely cottage and view really enjoyed our stay here, highly recommend."
    Simon ‐ 8 Apr 2018
    "Comfortable and warm flat, but rather short of equipment"
    Samantha ‐ 4 Apr 2018
    "Beautiful find. In the heart of many mountains to climb and a 10minute walk to wast water - couldn't have asked for better. Great self catering with a great view. Very clean and equipped with everything we needed. Great price! Short drive to a few "local" pubs if you want to eat out. Would love to stay again!"

    "Very pleased with everything, thank you - Glenn & Catherine"
