“Eco Holidays for the Disabled and their families”
Reviewed 24 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

This is a peaceful location but with much to do locally for those who wish it.
Buttermere offered good space for either wheelchair or walking aids. The underfloor heating ensured that every corner of the property was warm and welcoming, even after being out on a wet Lake District day.
It is good to have carefully sourced fittings, fixtures and household goods.
The range and simplicity of recycling demonstrates what is possible when you have space and a willing local authority.
The planning and planting of the site will only mature as the years go by.

“Guilt free luxury in the Lake District”
Reviewed 10 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We have stayed before and enjoyed ourselves again in this idyllic setting in the Lake District.
Marna has achieved an amazing balance of providing very high quality accomodation in an environmentally protective space, which just happens to be so so beautiful.
This time we stayed in Buttermere, as it is all on one level. Delighfully airy and spacious, superbly equipped (even for an adventurous cook) and really comfortable beds and bedding.
This time we decided not to drive too far on our days out and were delighted with the splendid scenery and amenities so near to Southwate Green. It was lovely to see how the grounds, grasslands, orchards etc have matured, and the "spiritual" feel of the place is very grounding.
Had some lovely meals at The Pheasant Inn in Bassenthwaithe, and the Kirkstile Inn provided a cosy lunch time venue follwing one of our easier walks at Loweswater.
We will be back.

“Five star luxury Eco cottages in a beautiful lakeland setting”
Reviewed 11 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We had a wonderful family and friend's gathering at Buttermere and Beckside in August 2011. All the adults and children had a relaxing time at Southwaite Green and enjoyed playing badminton and croquet on the grass court, BBq's and lots of fresh air in the beautiful Western Lake District. Brilliant that you could take the dogs as they love the long walks up to the stone circle, on the paths all over the car free site and up to the swimming pond too!
The cottages are very comfortable and well equipped with every necessity and lots of nice luxury touches too. Amazing that all of this is powered by state of the art green technology that really works.

“A great eco-holiday”
Reviewed 31 May 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Soutwaite Green is an excellent place to stay if you want to enjoy the less crowded but beautiful northern part of the Lake District. Buttermere is a large and comfortable eco-cottage with all the facilities you could wish for. We keep on coming back every year and love to see how the trees have grown. This year was particularly good as there are now photo-voltaic panels to generate all the electricity needed in the cottages. Great place.
