Guest Reviews

The property was outstanding in all aspects. The quality of furnishings, finish, location and the provision of extras which one might have forgotten. Being able to sit on the terrace and look out towards Ulverston with a cool glass of wine was just awe inspiring. The bedrooms where fabulous and always ensured a good night’s sleep, and the quiet location was incredible. The welcome by the hosts and their support throughout our stay was exceptional, thank you very much.

Rowan Cottage Guest

Oak Cottage Guest

We cannot thank you enough for an amazing weekend!

The Cottage is absolutely beautiful and the little touches made it a perfect day. We can’t wait to come next year!
Thank you

Rowan Cottage Guest

Absolutely superb cottage, that totally exceeded our expectations. Lots of little extras that we didn’t expect. Cannot think of a bad thing about the property. Would recommend to anyone, even better than the pictures.

Yew Cottage Guest

The pictures do not do the cottage justice! The view over the valley was breath-taking. Everything was excellent! The accommodation was better than described, and the price was exceptionally fair considering the facilities.

Lime Cottage Guest

What a fantastic find, everything was brilliant, top quality finishing, great for family gatherings,

Tom was a great help and tour guide, and Lynsey has been more than welcoming, love it

Hope to see you in December, thanks

Rowan Cottage Guest

Hazel Cottage is, by far, the best cottage we have stayed in and I would recommend it as the ideal holiday home. The furnishings and design are contemporary and the views are spectacular. You must book this cottage!

Hazel Cottage Guest

Weekend away with besties and husbands. An absolutely stunning property with the added luxury of the hot tubs.
We fully intend to return and experience more of the Lakes.

The welcome pack was a lovely touch and much appreciated by all. Our only complaint if we had to have one is that the bathrooms are far too hot and there is no way to cool down bedroom one just off the landing. Thanks

Rowan Cottage Guest

Fantastic out of this world place for a relaxing stay, Cartmel races was great on Saturday and the family had some winners.

A relaxing bbq day on Sunday very hot and sunny, Linsey was lovely lady very helpful and left us a basket of goodies and a chilled bottle of Prosecco. All in all a fab weekend will definitely come again.

Rowan Cottage Guest

Stayed for a week at Lime cottage with my partner over Christmas. What a beautiful place to stay.

They really have cut no corners when doing this project. So much thought has been put in to ensure a perfect day.

Decorated beautifully for Christmas, we received a warm welcome on arrival.

We will definitely be coming back to Bigland! Many thanks for a fantastic Christmas.

A very nice break at Lime Cottage.

The Swan is definitely worth a visit and we enjoyed walking at Grizedale Forest and Derwent Water.

Well appointed house with everything we needed-plus super comfy beds.

Will defo be looking to come back-loved it. Thanks

Lime Cottage guest

We have enjoyed a wonderful week in Hazel Cottage, and exploring the beautiful Lake District. Stunning Cottage, gorgeous views-amazing.

Found some lovely walks, our daughter enjoyed horse Trek at the Equestrian Centre down the hill, and the motor museum is definitely worth a visit.

Thank you for a lovely week in your beautiful cottage!

Hazel Cottage Guest

From the moment we arrived at Lime Cottage we were made to feel welcome.

The cottage was everything we expected and more.

This weekend was a relaxing one shared with good friends. Great location, just a short walk to Cartmel and other villages. We will be coming back to Lime Cottage!

Lime Cottage guest

Weekend away with brothers and WAGs. From start to finish fantastic stayed in a beautiful cottage! Lynsey had left us lots of lovely little treats (welcome hamper, bottle of fizz, milk, butter, cucumber and water). You really have thought of everything for a comfortable and hassle-free stay.

Beautiful decor, Furnishings and we will certainly be back again. Thank you for everything.

Rowan Cottage Guest

An exceptional cottage in a fantastic location. The Cottage is well fitted out and comfortable. Underfloor heating wonderful at this time of year and it’s log burner made the room glow.
The little extras that Lynsey and Andrew have ready for guests on arrival make a real difference and makes you feel very welcome. Ground staff very helpful too.

We will be back. Thank you

The pictures do not do the cottage justice! The view over the valley was breath-taking. Everything was excellent! The accommodation was better than described, and the price was exceptionally fair considering the facilities.

Lime Cottage guest

Fantastic cottage, Great facilities, fun time had by! x

Yew Cottage Guest

We all had a lovely stay here in Hazel Cottage. It’s very beautiful and we especially love the views. Fantastic to wake up to so many pheasants and rabbits each morning.

Many thanks for all the lovely thoughtful extras and gestures.

Hazel Cottage Guest

Had a lovely stay at Lime cottage for the half term break.
It had everything that we needed and although the weather wasn’t great for the majority of the week we still found plenty to do!
Orrest Head in Windermere is well worth a visit, even on a cloudy day the views were incredible. The cottage was a very cosy place to stay whilst Storm Desmond was taking its toll on the area, a very romantic setting which was just what we needed.

Will definitely be back again.

Lime Cottage guest

We have stayed in many country cottages as a family which have been amazing but the Oak cottages surpassed all.

Starting with a delicious welcome hamper, they’re beautiful comfy beds, superb Deco and course we must mention our relaxing evening bubbling in October.

This cottages made a family holiday one to remember. Thank you, I’m sure will we we will be back!

Oak Cottage guest

Lovely break in Hazel Cottage, warm welcome and everything we could possibly need.
Would love to return.

Hazel Cottage Guest

Thank you for making a holiday truly amazing-with the welcoming hamper and the kind of hospitality. The Cottage is gorgeous and we will definitely recommend it to others as we hope to come again soon.

Oak Cottage guest

Great Cottage and a very enjoyable time for all our family.

The hot tub definitely a hit with our son Finley.

The view from our room on a sunny day – fantastic. Will return

Keepers Cottage Guest

We had a marvellous week here spending time with the family in the most comfortable atmosphere. It felt like a luxury hotel.

Yew Cottage Guest

We were not expecting this trip, we needed to get away for a well needed family time after her mother passed away in early January.

For me, the setting, the homely touches were just what we all needed. I have been able to sit in peace and quiet in the tranquil surroundings.

We generally make cottage trips at least once a year, Keepers Cottage has got to be one of my favourites.

I thank you for our time here.

Keepers Cottage Guest

Each of the cottages boasts a carefully positioned hot tub and an outdoor area with patio furniture and a barbecue. The hot tubs make the most of our stunning setting and are exclusively yours to use day and night for the duration of your stay.

Keepers Cottage Guest

Lovely cottage, enjoyed every minute! Everything finished off to a very high standard! Made some lovely memories that will last a lifetime, can’t wait to come back!

Keepers Cottage Guest

Wonderful accommodation, very comprehensive, great view, especially when sunny!

Ideal center for southern Lakes.

Such a great holiday spot, every detail was covered! We loved it despite some rainy days:-)

Keepers Cottage Guest

We had a lovely time in your cottage, looking forward to coming back soon. Thank you Lynsey for sorting all the requests we had.

Yew Cottage Guest

This is the most beautiful cottage we’ve ever stayed at. Love the hot tub!

Love this place, can’t wait to come back for gin club on tour!!:-)

Yew Cottage Guest

Fabulous accommodation. Everything you could possibly need for a comfortable Lakeland break. Thank you!

Yew Cottage Guest

We had an amazing time. The cottage and the views are beautiful hope to be back soon!

Hazel Cottage Guest

We have loved living in Keepers Cottage this week and have much appreciated the high standard of accommodation.

It feels more like a comfortable and stylish home than a holiday rental!

The view is stunning and access to the National Park is easy.

And ideal holiday base and we will gladly recommend it.

Keepers Cottage Guest

Perfect. All our needs catered for.

Yew Cottage Guest

Lovely holiday, amazing accommodation, had a great time in the hot tub. Would definitely recommend this place to all our family and friends and will hopefully be returning for a second visit very soon.

Fantastic weekend all round! Thanks

Oak Cottage guest

A perfect place for birthday celebrations. All the rooms have been beautifully finished and the outdoor space has been fabulous. We’ve been lucky with the weather and managed to enjoy the hot tub and BBQ.

Glad we stumbled across this place on the internet and we will recommend!

Oak Cottage guest

Superb! Very accommodating everything was just perfect. Thank you

Yew Cottage Guest

We have loved our stay. The Cottage is second to none. Everything you could ever need has been thought of, and the Furnishings are all to the highest standard. The barbecue seating area and hot tub are all so wonderful. We wouldn’t hesitate to come back. Thank you

Yew Cottage Guest

Oak cottage is simply superb! All rooms are beautifully decorated and the little extra homely touches really make us all feel at home.

We were fortunate enough with the weather to take full advantage of the outdoor space and enjoy the stunning views.

Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed the house and surroundings. The Cavendish Arms in Cartmel can be highly recommended for dinner, but book early to avoid disappointment! We certainly plan to return to enjoy this fabulous place.

Many thanks

Oak Cottage guest

We have loved or cottage! Great accommodation, fabulous weather, amazing food and the best of friends.

Had a wonderful time in the jacuzzi and had fabulous weather I feel a bonus!

The location is beautiful. The house is so we’ll equipped and luxurious, we certainly made use of the facilities.
