About this listing

Our cosy cottage is a converted Edwardian dairy in the heart of the Lake District in north west England. It was the scene of butter making and meat curing well into the 20thC. A peaceful hideaway, ideal if you are looking to get away from it all!

Response from Alan & Cheryl:

Dear Raphael

Thanks for your review. We're sorry you felt that the cottage wasn't represented well by the photos on the listing. The interiors are all recent photos, mostly taken just this spring (May 2014) and our accommodation is inspected and compared to our advertising as part of the Quality Cumbria assessment scheme run by Cumbria Tourism. Perhaps you could let us know how you thought the cottage differed from the photos so we can look into it.

For a rural part of the Lake District we consider ourselves well connected - most places in rural Cumbria don't have a bus service at all!

When guests ask about visiting without a car we clearly list for them the distance to the nearest village (Grange with two cafes, three quarters of a mile) and to the nearest shops (Keswick, 5 miles) along with the bus routes that would be running during the proposed time of their holiday (78 from Keswick to Grange all year round, 77/77A past the door Easter - Nov). Our intention is that guests can then make their own informed decisions about whether our cottage would meet their own requirements for holidaying without a car.

With this information, which is also on our listing, we would hope it would be clear that yes, we are in a quiet rural location and yes, there are no shops nearby! There is however, a bus which can take you to the shops if you plan your day appropriately (which makes us less isolated than all those other places in the Lakes which don't have a bus!).

We hope you enjoyed your stay.

Kinds regards

Cheryl & Alan
