Alex & Sasha were the perfect hosts.. Came to welcome us with a lovely bottle of wine & gave us information about the area. In the cottage there is plenty of leaflets on the surrounding area. In the warm & cosy cottage you have everything you need. We tried the fetherstone arms in the village & wasn’t disappointed. Very good food & warm hospitality. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back if we was that way again. Just like to mention the dukes head pub in Armathwaite which also has great food & hospitality

A warm and friendly welcome from Sasha.. Lovely Christmas card and bottle of wine which was much appreciated. The cottage was very nice,warm and cosy. Loved the staircase. The bedroom was very inviting, really comfy bed. Tv, kettle, tea and coffee. Good idea to have another toilet downstairs. Our son came and slept on the sofa bed, he said it was fine. He definitely enjoyed chilling out. Enjoyed walking down to the dog friendly pub. Had a excellent meal in The feathers. Went into the next pub which was also dog friendly but could only go in when meals not served. Good base to explore area. Went to Penrith and Keswick. Enjoyed both. Beautiful countryside, weather really kind to us at this time of year. Suggest leave a torch in the cottages if you are walking back to the cottage. It only took us 20 minutes to the cottage. Would recommend. Thank you Sasha and Alex, it was great we could take our dog with us.

A delightful cottage in the peaceful Eden Valley.. Helpful owners who know The Lake District well and gave excellent advice for places to visit.

This was our first holiday with a new baby and what can I say, it was fantastic! The Coach House is beautiful and I didn't want to leave at the end of our holiday. Our dog was very happy and even made friends with the local cows in the next field. We started to call them "his girls" - he almost ran to the door! Alex and Sasha were brilliant hosts. Introduced themselves and let us get on with it. The bed was so very comfortable and the patio at the back was lovely. Will definately be using Sykes again amd recommending to my friends.

Short stay in March just for a change of scenery. The cottage was clean & tidy, well equipped with all the essentials to hand. The bedroom is bright and spacious with a comfy bed and the en-suit shower & toilet is quite adequate, It is also handy having an extra toilet downstairs. We met one of the owners Sasha who is a pleasant lass! Although they live next door we were left to do our own thing. In Kirkoswald The Featherstone Arms Thursday Pie Night is well worth booking!

The cottage was tastefully presented and had a lovely, comfortable atmosphere.. Had the feel of an older, substantially built structure excellently modernised. Proprietors were obliging and helpful. Situated in a lovely area with the beautiful Lune Valley nearby. No downside or complaints at all.

The owners of the property had made every effort to create a lovely setting, including a welcome from them in person, shortly after our arrival.. The house was spotless and well equipped and we would heartily recommend it to others.

The main negatives we found were the front door is extremely difficult if not impossible at times to lock.. It's very frustrating and would be a real problem if you were rushing or needed to leave in a hurry. Also the outside area is somewhat neglected. The decking was dirty and there is a drain that smells really bad, especially in the hot summer weather. We chose not to sit outside much due to this which was a shame. However, overall The Coach House is nice and situated in a great area. OWNER RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback. The issue with the front door is being addressed and we will investigate the smell from the drain as this has not been reported before. The outside had been impacted by strong winds in the area but has now been cleared again. We apologise for any convenience caused and would have addressed any issues raised had we been aware of them at the time.

The Coach House didn't disappoint - it's lovely. Modern upstairs, clean and surprisingly quite spacious (apart from the kitchen! but this still has mod cons etc). Alexa and Sasha are very welcoming and friendly. The Village has 2 great pubs that do fantastic food and allow dogs (The Crown allows dogs up until 5.30pm only but they also do take away food). River Eden is also a lovely discovery for walking purposes. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here thanks very much. Would definitely recommend this place.

Would highly suggest it to others.. Hosts were great and very welcoming. The only issue we had was internet was hit and miss and mobile signal was same making planning hard. Very relaxing, great facilities, very clean and well finished. We will be back in the future. Best wishes.

We had a lovely time here using this place as a base.. It was a very comfortable and well appointed cottage and the owners were very nice as well as extremely helpful. They also kindly gave us some eggs from their chickens to take home with us. It did rain quite a lot during our stay here but that couldn't be helped but there were plenty of things to do in the cottage and it was very relaxing there. Our dog loved it too. A visitor's book left by the owners would make an interesting addition to any future visitors to put in their thoughts of the stay there.

This was our first time in the area and we had a wonderful time, the cottage was just right with lovely owners and we would definitely come back -thank you very much!

A very warm welcome greeted us on arrival.. Tea & coffee making facilities were provided, as were half a dozen eggs laid by the hens which can be regularly seen in the woods around the back of the cottage. The hosts could not have been more helpful and the cottage is comfortable, quiet and cozy. All facilities were first-rate and we had the added bonus of the Tour of Britain (cycle race) passing right outside our front-door during our stay. The wi-fi is a little patchy at times, but perfectly serviceable if you're not expecting to stream 4k video etc - you are out in the middle of nowhere after all ! The local pub (Fetherstone Arms) in Kirkoswald serves excellent food and ale - we didn't get to try the Crown Inn across the road. There is a local shop in Kirkoswald for the basics and a well-stocked Co-op in nearby Lazonby which is a 30 min walk from Kirkoswald (with a few sizable but manageable hills to navigate). The woods situated in the grounds of the house are not accessible to guests but there are lots of lovely countryside walks that we enjoyed with our dog. The Lakes District and North Pennines are a short drive away, but even if you simply walk up to the top of the hill - the views are nothing short of sensational. Overall we would highly recommend a stay at the Coach House whether you want to explore the local scenery or just chill out and get some peace and quiet. We will certainly consider returning again next year. Finally - thanks to our hosts for such a pleasant stay.

Beautiful, unusual little cottage in beautiful surroundings.. Very comfortable bedroom and bathroom. Well-equipped kitchen. Very friendly and helpful owners next door. Perfect! Small enclosed decking area overlooking private woodland to the rear (useful, as we had our dog on holiday with us). We may well be back!

The Coach House was ideal for the two of us. We felt very much at home there and the owners were very welcoming and very helpful. The little shop in Kirkoswald had all the basics and the bigger shop not far away in Lazonby had everything else! The countryside around is delightful and we enjoyed a week of hill walking, mainly on the Pennines.

This is the best cottage we have ever stayed in. Everything was excellent and our hosts were more than welcoming. The surrounding area is beautiful and the pubs in the village are both fantastic! We will have no hesitation in recommending The Coach House to our friends and family.
