    Mr Fillingham
    "Great cottage with the exception of the shower which had a mind of its own regarding flowing or not which made showering a very long process"
    Mr Tymoshyshyn
    "We loved the cottage, it was everything we wanted. It had all the facilities we needed, it was comfortable, clean and in great order. We love the area, very close to 2 pubs serving good food and offering a warm welcome."
    Mrs Halpin
    "A lovely welcoming cottage in a good area for exploring the lakes"
    "We have stayed here 3 years on the trot now and each time it has been lovely. The cottage is perfect, an old railway station with the remains of the platform where we sat to have breakfast/lunch/drinks. Ideal place from which to explore the beautiful Lake District and to return to after a busy day. Cottage is very well appointed and has everything needed, very much a home from home."
    "Just returned from a stay at the cottage over the Christmas period. The cottage has everything you need for a really comfortable stay, the place has a really warm and cosy feel to it, even though the rooms are a good size. The kitchen was very good, we cooked a full Christmas dinner with ease with all mod cons and gadgets. Good position in the village for 2 quality pubs, serving great food and a small deli over the road. Good walks from the front door including the Old man of Coniston. The cottage next door which is attached, looked equally good as one bedroom place. Brilliant stay would recommend it."
    Mrs Turnbull
    "the only thing that concerned us, the driveway and entrance to the property were very dark at night, perhaps a light with a sensor on would help."
    Mr Simpson
    "Perfect little cottage. Good location, very quite."
    Mr De Mott
    Mrs Kelly
    "We had an amazing time in the Lake District and the station masters house was perfect. It was in a brilliant location allowing us to explore the whole of the Lake District at an easy driving distance. The accomodating is much bigger than the pictures show and the garden was beautiful. Look out for the little brown rabbit that comes to visit. We cannot wait to return."
    Mrs Holliday
    "Very quaint cottage which met all out needs. The oven took some working out, but our 16 year old grandson fathomed it out! Modern technology! Very good location and was able to go on walks from the cottage so not having to drive somewhere every day. Enjoyed watching the rabbits scampering round the garden. Was able to get shopping delivered from Asda so didn't have to drive around to find supermarket. Very enjoyable holiday"
    Mr Keith Pratt, Stockton-on-Tees,
    "We had a lovely stay. The Station Master's House has pleasant rooms. We had everything we needed in the kitchen. "
    "Nicely presented cottage with two large bedrooms and plenty of space to spread out. Nicely fitted kitchen with all required facilities .Good sized garden on the old track bed and railway platform . The drive and garden are shared with next door , but it's not really a problem. Very handy for two pubs both of which serve good beer and food. Small deli across the road which is very handy. Very near to Coniston which has all amenities"
    Mrs K Hayes, Southampton,
    "The property was roomy and very well appointed and the location was excellent. Despite being on a main road, once in the property and in its lovely garden it was very tranquil and relaxing. We loved seeing the birds and the rabbits in the garden. It was nice being able to go on walks straight from the cottage. The proximity of the two pubs and deli was great."
    Mr Cartwright
    "This was a very nice cottage. Everything we could wish for. It's well located, on a main road but quiet. Plenty of information about the area available. We would certainly recommend it and will be booking here again in the future."
    Mr Darren Bond, Ormskirk, Lancashire
    "A fantastic cottage in a quiet location near a couple of good pubs and a small shop. It was within walking distance of the lake which was an ideal place for our dog also, there were plenty of routes to take. Would definitely look to book here again in the future."
    Miss Louise Alcock, Wigan, Greater Manchester
    "The cottage is in a excellent location to enjoy walks and to explore the country side. There is also local pubs that serve excellent food. The cottage is clean and spacious and also dog friendly. We will definitely be returning. "
    Mrs Maxine Patel, Ashton-under-Lyne,
    "Everything was perfect; the location, garden and the fact that we could take the dog. We will be booking again. "
    Mr Iain Wallace, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear
    "It was spacious and well proportioned accommodation and dog friendly. It was well situated to local pubs and there were plenty of paths off road in all directions to walk without having to drive."
    Mr William Hillyard, Leicester,
    "The photos don't do this property justice. It was far better than we imagined, probably one of the best places we have stayed in. It made an excellent base from which to explore the Lakes and visit places of interest."
    Mr Keith Pratt, Stockton-on-Tees,
    "We loved it here, it is our second year visiting and we have had two brilliant holidays. A home from home. Perfect location for exploring the area. Look forward to coming over again. "
    Mr William Lewis, York, North Yorkshire

The beds are super comfy and the house is well stocked with pretty much anything you might need, including walking sticks for hiking. The gardens and pond are beautiful and the Lake District was magical."
    Mrs Sandra Brace, Basingstoke, Hampshire
    "The cottage was spacious & warm and in a good location for visiting Lake District. The pub was very convenient. It was nice to be able to sit outside & go for walks."
    Mrs Joyce Hopkins, Stockport, Greater Manchester
    "A lovely area to explore other places in Cumbria. I found the cottage very easy to get around as I have mobility problems and the shower was easy for me as well. My daughters came with me and we had a good week and would recommend to others. "
    Miss Tracy Jobling, Ashington, Northumberland
    "A lovely property equipped with everything you could possibly need. A beautiful garden with lots of sun coverage throughout the day. Public walkway to Coniston right outside of back gate & pub directly across road was fabulous too."
    Mr Keith Pratt, Stockton-on-Tees,
    "This was a lovely holiday cottage, a real home from home. We couldn't fault it if we tried. Everything was just like home, with little touches and loads of character. The only thing we did not like was having to leave at the end!"
    Mrs Sue Watson, Glasgow,
    "Fantastic enclosed gardens with a beautiful setting."
    Mrs Pippa Jones, Scarborough, North Yorkshire
    "Very spacious and comfortable property with a lovely well equipped kitchen. Very clean and good facilities. "
