Hosts Liz and Chris were delightful and the location is lovely; secluded with beautiful lake views and birds dancing around the garden in the morning. The bed was enormous and very comfortable and the bathroom was everything you could need. Breakfast is lovely and much better than at hotels charging twice the price. Slack Cottage is wonderful and I will...

Top hosts, Liz and Chris, make a great breakfast, with fresh fruit and some cereals, then a choice of either continental or traditional Cumbrian breakfast. It was delicious, and there were really nice...

A most relaxing break so near to the lake and yet a hidden gem. One would be hard pressed to find a better view not only from the bedroom but the luxurious bathroom too. Spending a week in this hideaway with deer on the field below our window one felt truly recharged. Our hosts Liz & Chris were extremely helpful...
