    "The accommodation was very well supplied. We had a lovely stay."
    Mr Goodwin ‐ 1 Aug 2018
    "If you are not totally impressed with this cottage, then there is something wrong with you! From the outside it looks lovely, but inside is even better. The size of every room is impressive. The quality and feel of the cottage is staggering good. They not only re-built the cottage to a very high meticulous standard, but also maintain it and all the contents to the say degree. We have stayed in many different places over our lifetime, from beach huts to lighthouses. This cottage is the best we ..."

    Mrs Gregory ‐ 1 Feb 2018
    "Would have benefitted from more detailed directions once we arrived at Backbarrow. No indication that some food and washing up things provided. Would have saved on amount of packing. Nice to have it though. Wardrobe in first upstairs bedroom was very stiff to close. Only one side of mirror light working in two of the bathrooms."
    Mrs Bowden ‐ 1 Feb 2018
    "The cottage was renovated and decorated to the highest standard. Every room was better than the next. The bedrooms were all so nice we couldn't tell which one was supposed to be the master! The living area was comfortable and the log burner a lovely idea, we used it each night. The views from the hot tub were unbelievable. Can't wait to come back"
    Mr Patel ‐ 1 Jan 2018
    "Its very beautiful and having the owners/staff literally next door meant we could any issues dealt with quickly and without problem."
    Mr Paton
    "Rowan Cottage exceeded all our expectations. It was warm, clean and absolutely everything was provided for us, including a Christmas tree! The location was outstanding and we were able to explore the wonderful area despite the awful weather. Coming back to a log burner only added to our enjoyment! Thank you to Lyndsey for being on hand to answer all our questions and generally being a great point of contact."
    Mrs Bainbridge
    "Absolutely superb cottage, that totally exceeded our expectations. Lots of little extras that we didn't expect. Cannot think of a bad thing about the property. Would recommend to anyone ,even better than the pictures ."
    - Miss Sutheran, March 2017

    "We stayed here as a family in July. The cottage (hardly a cottage!) was amazing, very clean, very spacious and had everything you could possibly want. Very peaceful and quiet but yet close to loads of places to visit and see. Would definitely recommend and one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in so far."

    "As a group of 6 we stayed in Rowan Cottage. It's an upside down house with 2 bedrooms on the ground floor (1 can be a twin) with one opening out onto a well furnished patio which has steps up to the hot tub and onwards to upper patio which has a dining table and chairs aswell as sofa and chairs. 2 bedrooms upstairs (again 1 can be a twin), open plan living room/dining/kitchen. All bedrooms ensuite and also an extra toilet. Nothing has been overlooked with the refurbishment of these houses, there's a utility room and everything you could want or need is supplied. Amazing standard. Loved the wine fridge and the touch of flip flops for the hot tub and blankets to keep you cosy if sitting out. We wouldn't hesitate to come back here again."
