What a wonderful place to stay! Perfect location for peace and quiet and for getting out in the fresh air and exploring the woods, fields and river. The cottage is homely and cosy with everything you need. We were surprised at how much room we had! We spent lots of time sitting in the sun on the veranda, watching birds and listening to the river running by in valley down below. Jane was a wonderful host and both her and her husband were friendly and accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed for a great stay. A perfect weekend.

Roeburnscar is a perfect location for easy access to the Lake District and right on the doorstep of the beautiful Forest of Bowland. The views are stunning and we would gladly stay there again. The cottage comfortably housed us all, including two young children and a baby and we all had a fantastic time. Jane is a very thoughtful and considerate host who attended to all of our needs. Highly recommend!

Can't fault this residence. The house was so big, it had everything we needed and was set in beautiful surroundings. Jane was lovely and made sure we were settled in. She provided us with lots of info about the surrounding area and had left a lovely welcome pack for us. We also loved how environmentally concienous the house was. Roeburnscar was the perfect place to celebrate my 30th and we hope to be back again next year.

We were made to feel very welcome by Jane despite her not being able to be at the house to greet us during our stay. She made everything clear before we arrived in terms of checking in, what we needed to bring etc. There was also an information sheet in the house and Paul, Jane's neighbour, came round to see how we were doing. The house was spacious and cosy with everything we needed for a country break, including a well-equipped kitchen and a log fire with one bag of complimentary logs. The house is surrounded by beautiful scenery and you can take walks in the woodland and see lovely bluebells and trees, as well as exploring other nearby villages. The setting was very peaceful. I would definitely recommend this property!
