This is our second visit to these cottages, last time we stayed in MIckledale, But on this visit it was Windale, the cottage was very warm and cosy, so peaceful, with a local pub just a short walk away, which was excellent.

We arrived on New Year's Eve for 3 nights and were shown to our cottage Langrigg. The cottage was lovely and warm and very welcoming. Not sure how many other cottages were occupied as it was very quiet. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen, lounge has DVD player, lots of books and games. Bedrooms comfortable and spacious.

A great base for exploring, walking and golfing in the Eden Valley. If you want quiet the Hamlet of Great Salkeld is for you. The cottage we stayed in was ideal for a couple looking to spend time together. It was of a high standard and excellent value. Near to Penrith and the Carlisle Settle railway. A short drive to...

We stayed at the Langriggs cottage for 7 nights. The location is great in quiet surroundings but close to Penrith and perfect for touring the Lake District. Tea and homemade cookies awaiting us made for a perfect welcome. The accommodation is to a high standard with lots of games, books and a big folder of useful information about local shops,...

This is our third visit, and our third cottage. Every cottage has been recently refurbished, and is very pretty, comfortable, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Close to the Lake District but in a peaceful, rural area away from the crowds, with a garden for the children. Also close to Hadrian's Wall and Carlisle for historical interest. Beautiful walking country. A...

Several well appointed cottages of varying sizes nestle in a corner of a small village surrounded by open countryside. Although in a hollow the owners have made the immediate area around the cottages very attractive and a short walk up the paddock gives views across farmland. Central to either the Pennines, Lake District or Hadrian's Wall it's a good location....
