“Fabulous stay! ”
Reviewed August 16, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

I stayed in the studio for 4 nights with my 2 young children. It is in a beautiful location. The studio was absolutely gorgeous, immaculately clean and comfortable. There was everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, also there was a washing machine and tumble dryer. There was a downstairs toilet, which came in very useful. A camp bed and bedding was provided for my son and there was still plenty of room in the bedroom for a blow up bed for my daughter. The king size bed was very comfortable and there was a lot of wardrobe space. The owners Howard and Jackie were very friendly and hospitable. There was even a bottle of wine on arrival, which I thought was a nice touch. I hope to stay here again in the future.

“As Good As It Gets”
Reviewed July 31, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Situated in a very small village (Pop.200) with one pub, but only a couple of miles from Penrith. Ideal location to explore The Lakes. The property is decorated to a very high standard with every amenity. Television in lounge and bedroom, every kitchen appliance you could wish for. Very comfortable sofa/chairs and bed. In the bedroom lots of wardrobe space. The kitchen has microwave and every utensil known to man. Cannot be faulted. Howard the owner is next door and is fountain of knowledge of the local area. Cannot recommend it enough.
P.S. Give the pub a visit - great food an the natives are friendly.

Reviewed June 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We travelled to Lilac Studio for my husbands 65 birthday - we were both so pleased with the quality of the accommodation - everything we could want and more - clean, bright, spacious for 2 people. Thank you so much for allowing us to share your property.

The Lake District has so much to do we will have to return to continue exploring. There is something to do for everyone.

Thank you once again for making our weekend special.

“Wonderful Getaway near the Lakes”
Reviewed March 1, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed for a week, perfect quiet location in the quaint little town of Newton Reigny. The cottage has lots of room and my favorite was we did not live out of our suitcases. There is an organized closet with drawers and hangers to unpack, stay and feel at home. Their was also a washing machine and dryer on site, which was great coming back from walking the lakes. We were in walking distance of the Sun Inn Pub which we visited twice, good food and local beer. We also met Howard one of the owners of which was a nice surprise. It was nice to have Morrison's within a 3 mile drive. There was enough wifi to check our emails and plan our next Lake walking adventure.

“Just wonderful.”

We booked online through Cumbrian Cottages and had a problem with the payment going through. This was promptly dealt with and disaster averted.
We loved lilac studio which is part of a barn conversion. There was everything and more to make our stay a comfortable and happy one. The decor is tasteful and furnishings all excellent quality.
Howard (one of the owners) was on hand if any problems occurred, which they didn't, but was very discreet.
We have previously had huge problems staying in a property where the owner lived next door, he had his own method of recyling and if we didn't quite get it right he would parade the offending item held aloft, past the window! No such problems here.
We will be back as soon as the savings and annual leave allow.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed September 22, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This accommodation was one of the very best, if not the best, we have stayed in the UK.
Large kitchen with every appliance we could possibly have needed. Very comfortable lounge area with TV and with large windows onto the private courtyard. The bedroom upstairs is fantastic with the highlight being the large windows with views across the countryside. The decor is beautiful. Very quiet but still close to shopping, pubs and of course the Lake District.
