The cottage had everything that you needed and more.. There was a welcome folder with a map and details of local facilities. Other items that were not listed on the website were provided such as fruit, wine, a fan in each bedroom, many DVD,s and books, toilet rolls in each of the bathrooms,hair driers, towels and tea towels, ice, tea, coffee, sugar and milk. If these items were originally listed then we would have known not to take many of them with us. The directions to the cottage were easy to understand and Penrith and Carlisle were within easy reach. The location was very quiet and while you could get in contact with the owner, it was nice that you were left alone to enjoy the holiday. There was ample parking close to the cottage which was very clean, warm and welcoming.
