“Another great stay at Jenny's Croft”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

We had another great weekend, staying at Jenny's Croft. We stayed in Jenny's Croft a few years ago, but the interior fit out did not look like it had aged, everything was still in pristine condition and well looked after. The external areas around the property have really matured and it really is a peaceful setting. I would recommend to anyone to visit. Thanks to the Rowley Estates.

“Truly stunning property ”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018

Our party stayed at both Jenny's Croft & Glassonby Hall during our recent trip to the lake district. I cannot speak highly enough of both properties which are both amazing. Jenny's Croft was beautifully appointed and in its own grounds with plentiful parking. The decor is perfect offering comfort & style and is fully equipped with everything you need - home from home. The welcome basket was most generous & provided lots of quality local produce which was a lovely touch & very much appreciated. The communication with the owner's was second to none which made the whole experience so easy, pleasant and reassuring, they had thought of everything. This lovely cottage wuth stunning views provides a perfect base for a lovely 'get away from it all' break. I can only hope to return one day soon.

“Lovely cottage in the scenic Eden Vally”
Reviewed 8 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

person found this review helpful

We love holidays in the Lake District and Eden Valley. Rowley Estates offer a very high standard of accommodation in great rural locations. We've stayed in several of their properties in recent years and need look no further for what we want. Very well maintained, high spec with attentive owners. Also great is flexibility over booking dates rather than the standard seven or fourteen day holiday.

“An excellent place to stay with top notch facilities and wonderful advice on the best places to visit.”
Reviewed 14 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

A wonderful cosy cottage with fantastic facilities, a large well-stocked kitchen, big open-space lounge with wood burning stove and two ensuite bedrooms. There is a patio outside with terraced garden. Very friendly owners with lots of tips on where to go and the best pubs and restaurants of which there are many. This is our second, slightly longer visit and we will definitely be back.

This was our second visit to Jenny's Croft and will be visiting again very soon.

We would highly recommend the cottage which is decorated to a high standard and fully equipped.

The cottage is situated in a lovely location within driving distance to some nice days out, restaurants and shopping.

“Perfect get away”
Reviewed 26 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Contacted Christine very very last minute to see if I could rent the cottage for the weekend and they pulled it out of the bag to get the cottage ready for me. It's absolutely perfect for either a couple of friends or a group of 4. The two ensuite's just make it so much easier than having to share a bathroom.

Even though the cottage is rural there's loads to see and do in the area, I'd recommend a lovely walk to Long Meg and down to the river. So very pretty.

Will definitely book again.

“What’s not to love 💗🏡”
Reviewed 31 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Staying at the Rowley Estates is always a pleasure. Jenny’s Croft is particularly wonderful as it has such a unique layout downstairs with the dual aspect log burner and is set in such tranquil surroundings in the unspoilt village of Glassonby. Stepping out the front door and catching sight of the stunning view with the rolling countryside to breathe in is just superb. We used the helpful walking guides provided to wonder up to Long Meg and her Daughters Stone Circle via the quaint local Addingham Church where the Rowley name is present. And a drive out over the Kirkstone Pass is always a favourite, this time taking us to Ambleside by way of Pooley Bridge. Incredibly dramatic scenery on such a crisp blue winter’s day.

From enquiry through to our stay the process is swift and convenient. Christine and Jilly are so considerate making sure you have everything you need to make your stay perfect. I can’t recommend any of their properties highly enough. Give it a try - you’ll not regret it.
