“This is the best Premier Cottage we have stayed in.  Excellent in every way.  It has been a lovely week exploring new places and returning to favourite spots.  A most lovely peaceful part of Cumbria.”

Janet and BobLancs, May 2019

“Five Stars and Gold Award fully justified! Everything we could possibly want.  So lucky – 6 days of Spring dry weather, 6 days of great walking.  High Cup Nick worth the effort.”
