The cottage is in the lovely little hoseasons village of whitbarrow and is perfect. Absolutely brilliant little base for us for a family holiday. Well equipped, clean, cosy. We had a small issue with the gas cooker during our stay but both reception at the village and Mrs. Smith, the cottage owner were very helpful and fast at resolving this. The owner is lovely and friendly and responded quickly to any messages we sent. The village staff are all great too.
There is so much to do on site, swimming, archery, golf, gym, crafts, survival skills, we even spent a morning playing a 'crystal maze' style family adventure game which was fantastic and all activities on site are free. The whole complex is ruled over by a fab flock of friendly ducks who soon learned that my kids would feed them and followed us around. The memory of my 4 year old sat outside our cottage, feeding a duckling from her hand will stay with me forever.
The village is perfectly situated for the lakes, castlerigg stone circle, aira force, everything. You won't be short of things to do. We'd come back here in a heartbeat.
