Property Reviews

Wetherlam cottage was absolutely perfect. The location is idyllic and we had the most wonderful relaxing break with our 4 children. We hope to return very soon.Mrs Goodfellow
Incredibly fabulous time had by all over Christmas time. Amazing house - very homely, comfortable and well equipped. Lots of places to be together and apart! Going to miss the views and adventures around the garden. Such a great location - easy walking distance to Grasmere. recommend the Gingerbread shop, The Chocolate shop and Dove Cottage. Thank You!The Straw Family, Bristol
