VISITORS’ COMMENTS – SUNSET COTTAGE

"Lovely cottage. Always warm and cosy. Good base for visiting the Lakes whilst being away from the busy "tourist" areas. Would love to come again during the summer months to fully appreciate the wonderful view."

"Came for a relaxing weekend and had some lovely walks. Loved Sunset Cottage would like to visit again in the summer."

"Very comfortable and cosy cottage, beautiful views. Janet is a very welcoming host and gave us some tips re local walks and pubs etc. Walk up to windfarm very good, super views. Walking around Seathwaite, Lickle Valley superb plus drive over Hard Knott pass spectacular but not for the faint hearted! Recommend local food shops in Broughton - butchers/deli, greengrocers and bakers, also Beswicks restaurant. Duddon Estuary sands great huge expanse of beach to ourselves. Had a great morning riding at Cumbrian Heavy Horses - lovely experience. Thank you Janet a very enjoyable stay."

"Excellent cottage, brilliant location. We had a great time and will defo visit again."

"We have had a lovely time at the Lake District. We have visited Askam (nice meal at the new "Italian" restaurant "La Bella"), Bowness-on-Windermere, Coniston, Barrow and Ulverston (lovely gift shop "The Shop Floor").  The accommodation is wonderful; spacious, warm, clean and everything you need. The location of the cottage is breathtaking - we're glad we didn't meet another vehicle on the lane!"

"Once again, we have had a fantastic time here in the cottage. We had everything we needed and were very impressed with the refrigeration facilities. Loved the cottage, loved the area and our young daughter thinks Janet and Peter are "so cool". See you soon."

"Had a lovely stay. We stayed with our parents and grandparents. We went for a walk which was very nice. We will definitely come again but for longer next time!"

"Our fourth visit, but the first time in summer. At least we were not snowed in this time! Had a lovely time and the kids walked and played their socks off, as did our puppy, Jonty. He loved the beaches and Lakes! Particularly enjoyed the train journey from Kirkby to St. Bees and the bay there. The walk around Tarn Hows was very child friendly with fantastic views. The children also loved Barrow Dock Museum and Walney Island. We even saw the sun shine! Thanks Janet and Peter."

"We were all bowled over with the cottage, the peacefulness and teh views. A great spot for us to just relax and have a "home" to come back to after each adventurous day! In a week we have visited Askam, Millom, Coniston, Bowness, Ambleside, Grasemere and last but not least Whitehaven and that beautiful coastline. The Haig Colliery Mining Museum in Whitehaven has come a long way since I last visited. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay."

"A beautiful cottage, fantastic views across the Duddon Estuary to Blackcombe. A wonderfully quiet area but more than enough to keep us busy despite the "shower dodging in the second half of the week. The children loved the beaches especially the wide open sandy Silecroft beach (we only get pebbles in the south!) and we all enjoyed the walking - the views from the top of Blackcombe are well worth the effort. The dog loved it all. South Lakes Animal Park, Piel Island, Muncaster etc. gave us plenty of options and we'll definitely be back to continue our exploration of the Duddon. Thanks for everything - it's been a fantastic holiday."

"A fantastic and very relaxing holiday. The scenery is amazing and this an ideal area to stay, away from the main tourist areas yet within easy reach of everything. dogs loved the long walks on the moor. Cottage is excellent with all home comforts. Janet is friendly and very helpful - I hope we were not too noisy for her with 4 lively teenagers and 2 dogs! We will certainly will try to come again."
