This is an excellent cottage in lovely gardens, beautifully equipped and furnished, with practical non-carpeted floors downstairs - ideal for dogs.. The owners live next door, on hand should there be any problems. Ask Amanda if she has eggs available from her hens. Location-wise it is ideal for exploring the northern Lake District, with Carlisle, Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith in easy travelling distance, also the Roman sites further east. We had concerns with the practicality of the wash basins (more stylish than useable) and passed this on to the owners - may not be a problem for other users. We would stay there again.
