“home from home but better!”

This house is beautiful. Our group of friends felt so at home here, everything we could have imagined needing was there, there was a lovely welcome pack with treats in when we arrived which made us feel so welcome. We loved it so much we stayed in most nights because it was so comfortable and cosy! but there were also good pubs very near. We did lots of cooking in the house, and the kitchen was fully kitted out. The shops near by meant we could potter on a rainy day, and the local wholefoods shop has a fantastic spread of local delicious cheeses for a brilliant cheese board. We spent a happy sunny day in Ullswater which took us just 45 minutes to drive a very scenic, pleasurable drive and also did other local beautiful walks straight from the front door. We thought the parking might be an issue but it really wasn't, we parked two cars very easily and very close by for free. A definite recommendation for anyone looking for a lovely getaway! :)
