The Game Keepers Cottage is beautiful.. Set in a gorgeous garden with lots of wildlife. Really relaxing. The owners Ian and Heather are a lovely couple who could not be more accommodating. If we do return to The Lake District I would have no qualms about staying in Hale again. A welcome pack on arrival was a very thoughtful touch.

After years of holidays further up in The Lakes, it was a change to be able to stop a little further south and miss the more touristy areas.. A week of great weather provided the chance to visit old haunts as well as creating some new ‘favourites’ - the topiary at Levens Hall is still brilliant, and an afternoon with the Ospreys (at Foulshaw Moss) was a delight. The “chippy” at Arnside was also a real find... The cosy cottage with delightful gardens (and fabulous bird tables and bird baths!) made for a comfortable base. The ensuite shower and a lush ‘dressing room’ were added benefits, along with a full range of guides and leaflets for attractions both local and further afield. A warm welcome from our helpful and knowledgable hosts was much appreciated, along with the drinks pack and chocolate biscuits. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well-equipped, with quality fittings and furniture (even down to soft fluffy throws for cooler evenings). Look out for the amazing chandelier in the bedroom! Minor issues were the A6 road noise and the steep access drive, but these were outweighed by fabulous views and the otherwise excellent facilities.

The cottage is lovely and well appointed.. Large comfortable bed. Small but functional shower room. Hosts great. Only downside is the parking is up a very steep driveway which is difficult to manoeuvre.

What a lovely experience of the Lake District, first of many I’m sure.. Gamekeeper’s Cottage is a delightful place to stay and Heather is on hand with helpful ideas of places to visit and easy to chat to about the area and putting the world to rights. The cottage is well equipped, clean and with great furnishings, felt relaxed and at home. I must apologise to Heather, we inadvertently forgot to remove things from the fridge... sorry A lovely stay. Give it a try

The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped, with beautiful views and lots of wildlife to watch in the garden.. It is situated in a lovely area with nice walks from the doorstep, and within easy reach of the lakes. Heather and Ian are great hosts who made us very welcome at short notice! I heartily recommend it.

The owners Heather & Ian couldn’t have been more helpful and nothing was too much trouble.. We were welcomed and shown into a cottage decorated for Christmas, very thoughtful and totally unexpected. The cottage is warm and cosy, clean and easy to manage. Plenty of firewood supplied for the wood burner. The attention to detail in everything you could ever need in the kitchen. Sadly I was ill throughout our stay but when we did get out it was nice to know that the cottage would be warm and inviting to return to.

Cosy cottage that is well maintained and one of the joys is the garden and the view across the valley.. Good position to get out and about with the Lakes in easy reach and towns and cities within an hour or so drive.

We spent a lovely 3 night break at Gamekeeper's Cottage. It was equipped and decorated to a high standard. The complementary wine, milk and biscuits were appreciated. The owners were very welcoming and provided us with useful information about the surrounding area - there were also books, maps and leaflets in the cottage which helped us plan our time. We enjoyed a trip to Kirby Lonsdale to see Ruskin's View, food at No 17 in Milnthorpe, fish & chips with a view at Arnside and a woodland walk to the fairy steps. Would highly recommend.

Spent a lovely few days in this very comfortable cottage over the Christmas period. The cottage is very well equipped and beautifully decorated with the added bonus of a great wood burner. Heather and Ian - the owners - couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The cottage was festively dressed for the season which was very much appreciated. We would heartily recommend this cottage and look forward to a return stay.

Gamekeeper Cottage was extremely well presented and comfortable and fixtures and fittings were of a high standard. The couple who own the cottage live next door and were extremely welcoming and helpful about what to see and do in the area without being intrusive. The view from the table in the garden was spectacular and an evening glass of wine overlooking the valley finished off some lovely days for us. The cottage was in a perfect location to access both the Lake District and other surrounding areas. A visit to Carnforth to the station where Brief Encounter was filmed is a must.

The owners were extremely obliging as we did not know when we would arrive due to bereavment. They could not not have done more for us. The cottage was everything we wanted, private, clean and luxurious and the views (even from the bed) were outstanding. At our age we want those little touches that were provided for us. We will definately be back under better circumstances and explore the wonderful surroundings - although in this cottage you have to force yourself to go out!
