Comment: I just wanted to give some feedback about the cottage and our three-night stay last week.
The cottage was very well presented - clean and welcoming. The surrounding gardens and property are in excellent condition and well maintained.
The location is perfect - far enough away from the hustle and bustle but within easy reach of Hawkshead and other local amenities.
We really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

Comment: Another great stay in this cozy cottage and hard to beat for both cost and location in the summer months, even in school term when the Lake District’s packed, this cottage is far enough away for peace and quiet, but close enough to Hawkshead for pubs & shops. Well appointed for walks from the door and can recommend a few. Coniston along the Cumbrian Way via Tarn Hows. Latterbarrow-Claiffe Heights to Hawkshead via Moss Eccles tarn.(Nice pint at the Sawrey hotel). Black Fell (little cairn you can see from the window), has great views and nice for a picnic. Grizedale forest to Satterthwaite via Carron Crag entering at High Cross. Wray Castle to Hawshead via Outgate and Blenheim tarn.(Try High Wray farmhouse for a proper pot of tea/coffee/cake etc). Elterwater along the Tarn Hows/A592 bridleway (food and drink at the Britannia Inn). Ambleside via Iron Keld/Skelwith Bridge and under Loughrigg. They should keep you going for the week if you are like us and don’t want to use the car.

Comment: The accomodation was very well appointed, and comfortable. Many walks are within close proximity. We did a walk which took us down to Hawkshead, up Hawkshead Hill, around Tarn Hows and back through Knipe Fold (about 7 miles)
The nearest public house was "The Outgate", which sold good food and beer. This was accessible by going back down the lane to the main road, and then walking field side of the wall to Outgate.

Comment: We enjoyed our 3 night stay. Last year we stayed in the Gallery and gave some feedback then.
This year we walked to Hawkshead across the fields and had a meal at the Red Lion. Our other two evening meals were taken in the Pub in Outgate.
One day we used the buses to get to Bowness, walked to the car ferry. Having crossed the lake, we walked back via Sawrey and Hawkshead. We had lunch in the Sawrey Arms.
Another day we took the bus to Ambleside and walked to Grasmere via Loughrig Terrace. We had lunch at the Lamb Inn and then caught the open top bus back to Ambleside. Having spent some time in Ambleside, we then caught the bus back to Outgate.

Comment: We immediately felt very at home in the cottage and loved that it was so quiet here. The gardens are beautiful and the access to gorgeous walks was much appreciated, and of course the ducks!
