    "This is an exceptional cottage to stay if you are looking for a great place to stay in the lakes! Very close to Coniston. The cottages are well furnished, beautifully presented and the attention to detail is incredible! Our cottage had a hot tub, BBQ and outside dining area! 10 of us stayed and the space inside the cottage was great - 3 rooms were ensuite and 2 had separate bathrooms! The kitchen and living areas were spotlessly clean and spacious, the only moan for me was the pillows provided ..."

    "A great 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom holiday house. Just refurbished to a very high standard. Brilliant location. Excellent paved area outside with BBQ and hot tub and outside table and chairs. Lots of parking space. We had a great time."
    Mr Blackwell ‐ 1 May 2018
    "We all had a fantastic holiday at Oak Cottage. The house was incredible, the welcome hamper was very much appreciated and the whole experience made the all round 13 hour drive worthwhile. Oak Cottage is in a great location, the rooms are fantastic and the on site staff are really helpful. We would go back there in a heartbeat - the window seat (and it's incredible view) were particularly popular."

    "We visited Oak Cottage for a girls weekend away celebrating a 30th Birthday. We were welcomed by Lynsey who could not have been more helpful throughout our stay. The cottage is amazing, the photos don’t do it justice! As soon as we arrived we got straight into the hot tub with the complimentary prosecco admiring the stunning views. We are already deciding on the next excuse for a weekend away up there!"

    "As a family of 10 over 3 generations we holiday annually in locations across the uk and have stayed in some beautiful accommodations but Oak cottage has been by far the best. Upon arrival we were blown away by the stunning views, warm welcome from Lynsey and the welcome hamper. The spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area which is situated on the first floor gives stunning views over the valley, and was perfect for us as a family as we were able to engage with each other and keep an eye on the young children, whatever we were doing. The kitchen was well equipt with everything you need for your stay, the dining table comfortably seats 10 and the living area has 3 large sofas around a smart t.v and wood burner. The 5 bedrooms are split between the ground floor and second floor, 3 of these have on-suits with showers the other two bedrooms each have a bathroom across from it with a bath and shower, each bedroom has plenty of space and storage and is equipt with a smart t.v, hairdryer and plenty of towels. The 3 ground floor bedrooms also have outside access to either the court yard or the hot tub/ outside dining area, there are also flip flops and blankets supplied for outside use. also on the ground floor is a utility room with a washer and dryer, clothes rack, hover,iron and ironing board. There is plenty of parking around the property. Oak cottage was a beautiful place to spend the week with our family, it ticks all the boxes, so much so we have already booked for 2019."
    Mrs Whalley ‐ 1 Mar 2018
    "Beautiful cottage with good views. It is situated at the top of a hill so you need your car to get papers shopping etc. There are no windows in the downstairs bedrooms but they have doors leading onto the patio. I missed not being able to have some air coming into the room in the evening as it would not be safe to have the patio doors open all night. The kitchen was well stocked but if you were cooking for 10 people the one cooker may be a problem. On the whole I would recommend this cottage and we all enjoyed our stay."
    Mr Cornelius ‐ 1 Mar 2018
    "Fantastic facilities, a great location and excellent value for money Couldn’t have wished for more"

    "Have just completed a 3 night mini-break in Oak Cottage, and we are already planning our next trip! The quality of all finishes and attention to detail are second to none! The kitchen is beautiful, all bedrooms are a generous size, and nothing in this cottage disappoints. Although a Private Hot Tub is available, we unfortunately never got round to trying this out. (Next Time!) The views around the estate are truly a joy. I could go on and on..... An unexpected welcoming basket containing eggs,fresh bread,jam and biscuits, underlines the management here were prepared to go the extra mile to ensure we enjoyed our stay. (Oh, and not forgetting the Prosecco!) The onsite Manager, Lynsey, was most helpful and very welcoming. Can not wait to return, and would highly recommend!"
    Ms Oldrid ‐ 1 Feb 2018
    "This was just the most amazing place we have ever stayed in. Beautiful and clean with contemporary furnishings. Lynsey, the owner was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend this place to anyone."
