Sunetra was a wonderful host, supplying us with plenty of firewood and local advice, and the cottage was very comfortable.
Wonderfully comfortable stay and Sunetra was a delight...a bit tricky to find but the locals are really friendly and helpful, so it actually added to the experience! Would highly recommend this cute cottage for the Lakes base.
Had a nice and relaxing time with friends there. Lovely apartment for holidays.
Sunetra is a warm and generous host and the cottage is in a good position to visit the Lakes District.
This place is very cute! We enjoyed our stay, suited us perfectly for one night stopover. Not much to do in the village. Beds comfortable and check in/out super smooth. Great value.
Our stay at Sunetra's lovely cottage was a much needed break away. The cottage has a lovely, homely feel and is well looked after. Sunetra was easy to communicate with and was very helpful with any queries we had. I would recommend this place if you are looking for a home away from home in a quaint little town.
White Rose Cottage had almost everything we needed for a few days stay or even longer. I enjoyed having a washer to keep up with the laundry and could have used a dryer, but at least we had good weather for using the outside line. Hot water boiler was out of order, but the shower has it's own heater, so no problems there. Just needed to boil kettle to wash dishes. No real hardship.
Decor is a little dated, but beds were comfy and there was plenty of space for 3 adults. This would really suit a larger family too.
We missed having a TV to keep up with current news etc, but managed for a couple of days without. No doubt most people these days use their smart phones, but ours didn't work in the UK.
Sunetra looked after us very well, leaving milk and muffins in the kitchen so we didn't need to search for a store late in the day. Location is at the far south end of the Lake District, meaning a bit of a drive to see the main sights, but this was more than compensated for by the quiet village location. Overall, a nice place to stay.
We had a fantastic time at White Rose Cottage. It was gorgeous and very clean and tidy. It was well provisioned for our stay, and Sunetra has thoughtfully provided card games, and directions for local attractions. In our interactions with Sunetra we were made to feel very welcome and looked after. I only wish we could have stayed longer as there was lots to do in the local area and it was very relaxing being at the cottage.
We had a lovely time at Sunetra's cottage. It is an excellent base for exploring the Lakes District. Sunetra was an excellent host. Her directions to the cottage were perfect and she was most helpful during our stay. The cottage was fantastic. We have three children and there was ample space for us. I recommend this cottage to you.
Thanks very much Sunetra.
