Wonderful location sea shore and mountains.. On a farm with lovely and helpful hosts .In easy reach of the pristine Ravenglas (plus railways) Do note the paucity of shopping venues in the area so take all your provisions.

We really enjoyed our stay.. Of all the years we've been visiting the Lake District, we've never had the weather as hot as it was, especially for the full week. The only thing we could have done with was a fan, but given the unusual weather, I guess it's not normally required. Very comfortable and despite being on a working farm, we were never disrupted by noise. Mike and Lesley, the hosts were very friendly too. It's a great location to get to all of the best sights in this area (only a mile walk to the estuary down a country lane). Definitely recommend a stay here!

This holiday cottage is the best! You get a lot for your money. It has every comfort and is exceptionally warm and sound proof in the winter, a very cosy cottage. This is a working farm and the owner is very pleasant and helpful. The views are wonderful and the area offers crags, mountains, and beaches for walking, a must if you have dogs. Muncaster castle is just around the corner, the best time to see this is in May when the Rhododendron are breathtaking and blue bells on the woodland walk phenomenal. If you take the time to see Ravenglass 1 mile walk via beach there is a Roman bath house, steam train ride and quaint village with lovely pubs. One of the highlights is during the week we were here ( End of November) the MOD where firing artillery shells into the sea which was very exciting. Overall a lovely place with plenty to do and see. Can't wait to go back.

we loved the cottage, very relaxing with stunning views and loved watching the hens out of the kitchen window, the only negative was the tv which is very small but will definitely return

A brilliant cottage.. Lovely owner. Quite and peaceful but close to loads of activities. Cottage very clean, well stocked and has everything you could possibly need. I would recommend to anyone. We will be returning.

Ideal place to stop, particularly if you enjoy walking, which we do.. Very peaceful place, with a lovely view, we enjoyed watching the hens strut their stuff and seeing the calves. Even if you don't like walking it is a good location to drive 10 to 25 mins, to several interesting places, seaside resorts, Muncaster castle, Wast Water - stunning views - a must do visit, the little steam train (La'al Ratty) in Ravenglass with its spectacular views along the way and lovely country stops. We enjoyed the 25 min walk into Ravenglass, we also had a lovely walk and visit to Muncaster castle. Surprise view cottage is great for self catering and if you fancy a break from cooking the pub food in Ravenglass is good. I did miss having a cafetiere for my morning coffee, but that is a minor personal preference.

It was in December so we could not complain about the weather or the mud 9its a farm). It was clean and well furnished, reasonably close to places to go (rsteam railway, castle) - the highlight would be Wasdale & Wast Water where the mountains are reflected in a mirror-like lake which is quite shallow but appears to be as deep as the scree slopes are tall). The Hodgsons are a pleasant couple & there was no problem with our well-controlled dog. I would recommend it to anyone

The directions to the cottage are absolutely shocking! “Pass dwelling on left” there are two “dwellings” before the cottage, which you do not pass. If the directions said to go into Cumbnalds Farm it would save twenty minutes driving in and out of the wrong place

We had a perfect week in surprise view cottage.. Finding the farm was very easy and the views from the cottage were spectacular. So peaceful and serene with absolutely breathtaking views of the mountains. In fact, I don’t think we have ever stayed anywhere with such views. Plenty of parking space for the car. The farm owner was very friendly and informative about the area. Fresh eggs also available from the free range hens. It was only 30 minutes on foot to Ravenglass via a quiet lane and a path along the beach. There are also several very interesting walks from the Ravenglass railway. The cottage itself was ideal for us with everything that we needed for cooking, washing etc and also a fantastic log burner for the chilly nights. This is a totally unspoilt area of the lakes if you are looking to escape from the crowds. I can also recommend the Victoria Inn at Drigg for food. We really loved it here and would definitely go back.

Excellent cottage and this was my second visit.. Lovely to have the magnificent view of some of the Lakes highest peaks. Two other comments and they do not mean I would not go again. I love the place. The drive up the track has rather a lot of pot holes - but I know it is a working farm and tractors will go up and down. Great to be on a working farm. TV is rather small and the DVD does not give a very good picture. Minor points! It is beautifully warm when the heating is on. I would certainly recommend the place to anyone - especially as it is so close to some of the most wonderful scenery of the Lakes and makes the Wastwater area easily accessible by car. La'al Ratty starts from nor far away and is a gem.

Gorgeous views I expect when you have good weather . Close to Ravenglass and easy access to Coniston . Lovely owners too
February 2018
My one slight criticism would be the size of the shower cubicle.. It's a little small but apart from that I would still book this cottage again as I had a very relaxed break and was very well received by the owners.

We had a fantastic week in this cottage and the location was perfect for visiting both the coast and fells.. You can also easily access Keswick, Kendal and Windermere. Fantastic for long walks on the beach or costal paths. The location of the accommodation was very quiet and comfortable and we would definitely recommend and will look to revisit in the near future.

The shower was a very small cubical
Mr Morgan
November 2016
The building, the views,its location and its position on a working farm made it feel special.. Great location as within 1 hour drive north or south were very many points of interest,attractions and fantastic scenery. A short interesting walk to Ravenglass with 3 licensed establishments and a fascinating land locked estuary.

It was peaceful, well maintained and within easy driving distance to all of the Lake District.
Miss Winter
November 2015
We loved how tucked away the location was, yet at the same time it is only a moments drive to some pretty spectacular lakes and historic landmarks. It suited our hiking plans and the dog to a tee. It was quiet, cosy and relaxing and the hosts were very considerate.
Mr Sundquist
November 2015
The cottage was a lovely place to return to after a day of work. The downstairs bedroom was very quiet and I slept very soundly.
Mr Atkinson
June 2015
Loved the sights and sounds of being on a working farm - the cows, bull, sheep, and the farmer hard at work all hours of the day! Loved the view from the cottage and loved exploring the western lake/coast area. Loved returning to a comfy bed and good shower.
Mr Eldon

A completely relaxing holiday amid a working farm environment, although this wasn't reflected in the amount of noise and disturbance evident. It was a peaceful and very tranquil setting. The owner was extremely sociable and helpful. As usual a very nice holiday, may return.
Mrs Johnston

The location of the cottage provided good access to Eskdale and surrounds. We liked the views afforded by having the living room upstairs.
