  • Cosy, warm cottage - perfect for our day of rest - due to the torrential downpour one day. Quiet and peaceful spot to explore from Hadrian's Wall to the Lake District. John was an excellent and helpful host. J & G E. Florida USA. (Ref: Mickledale May 2013)

  • What a lovely gem of a cottage! Everything you need to make a comfy holiday – thanks so much for the lovely Fudge. Children loved the play areas. For children can recommend: Pencil Museum in Keswick and Beatrix Potter in Bowness on Windermere. We’d love to come back some day – so much more to explore.

  • Thanks John & Linda for another relaxing week in Windale. Found a nice circular walk from Armathwaite via Ainstable - about 6 miles. Still lots of great eating places. Special award to the Apple Pie in Ambleside for the best Cornish Pasties. Hope to be back soon.

  • Our first holiday at Lake District. We love the wonderful, peaceful area. It's lovely. We enjoyed our stay in your comfortable and cosy cottage. We had all the things we needeed and the children loved the garden. Thank you very much. S & E E and Family Germany (Ref: High Croft May 2013)

  • Yet again a wonderful stay at one of your cottages. Peaceful surroundings really enhance the stay. Enjoyed the local scenery as well as the lakes and had a nice drink with the locals in the village pub, The Highland Drove. Can't beat the wood burning stove on a chilly night. Wonderful quality cottage, details really thought of. Can't wait to return. Thank you. S & A S and D & M P Newport (Ref: Garth May 2013)

  • 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
