John and JoyceSheringham, June 2019

“The cottage is stunning and the cleanliness is of a very high standard.  Views from the cottage are amazing as are sunsets from the kitchen window.  A well deserved 5 star gold award.”

Gilly and MalLincoln, May 2019

“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.”

Lucky spot in the woods this morning - baby Bambi!

Great day out at Dalemain Mansion & Historic Gardens on Sunday for a plant fair. Many events are put on here during the year including the famous marmalade festival, but well worth a visit anyway. Beautiful gardens, interesting house and also home to the famous blue poppy. Close to Ullswater and 20 minutes drive from Shepherds View! ... See MoreSee Less
