  • Have had a fantastic time. The Cottage was well equipped and spotless. High Croft and surroundings are beautiful. Sad to leave after our 3 day stay. Will definately plan to come again. Thank you. D & D T plus family Manchester (Ref: High Croft April 2013)

  • Had a lovely 5 day Break here in Mickledale Cottage. It was cosy, calm and peaceful, beautiful scenery, good places to visit, everyone very friendly. Would definately return again, "Highly Recommended" G & C J London (Ref: Mickledale March 2013)

  • Quality Accomodation
    Each cottage has a warm, cosy atmosphere, which reflects the considerable thought that has gone in to giving the properties their individual charm and character.

  • Well, it’s taken us 13 years to get here and great to see John and Linda again, as we are two old*** customers from their days at The Ravensworth Hotel in Keswick! We knew that the standard would be excellent and scrupulously clean. Thanks for a great stay – lovely peaceful location, lovely comfy property. It will not be another 13 years before you see us again! J & D S Leeds (Ref: Mickledale Cottage August 2013) *** I think the writer should have used the word "ex" not "old" as J & D are by no means old! Good to see you both again John & Linda
