Comment: This cottage is very comfortable and has good facilities. The walks really are straight from the door. The terraced garden at the back is a lovely place to sit and have breakfast on fine days. The Cuckoo Brow Inn is very welcoming especially if you have a dog.
We would like to go back sometime.

Comment: Cottage really clean and tidy, but tall people must watch headroom when on stairway to top floor, good head of hair recommended. Motor museum, town end and botanic garden made for good visits, Ruskin house excellent with good cafe and craft centre (shop really)attached. Blackwell was worth a revisit, but despite an exhibition seemed to lack some of the contents we thought we had seen previously. However food in cafe well up to scratch (but not a pie and peas establishment). Note that the cottage garden not really securely enclosed, so if have an adventurous dog it could be off and away.

Comment: The cottage was lovely - well equipped, beautiful location, wonderful local walks, very easily accessed from Hawkshead. Excellent kitchen, generally well equipped, though casseroles and bowls for cooking for six would have been helpful.
We were there when the weather was bad - thick snow - but the setting in the snow was magnificent. The cottage was warm and cosy. A small point - there were no firelighters or kindling when we arrived on a cold, dark, snowy evening; however, the central heating was very effective.
Nice ensuite and bathroom. Very comfortable beds in all rooms.
Excellent for dogs.
A very enjoyable stay!

Comment: Just spent a great week at Brookend. The
cottage was beautifully presented, especially the
bathrooms. Lots of fantastic walks straight from
the door and great to see Sawrey stores back
open. Food and welcome at the Tower Bank as
good as ever. All in all a brilliant week, hope to
see you next year.
