We stayed at Rollen Court Cottage for a weekend break with friends. The cottage was tastefully furnished with leather recliner settees a 42" high spec T.V. with a full sky package internet and wifi , which was an added bonus. The kitchen had everything you would ever need, dishwasher, halogen cooker, microwave, fridge freezer and washing machine and every utensil, in fact we were quite spoilt. Upstairs was a treat, beautiful bedroom furnishings king size beds and fabulous power showers and scrupulously clean. The area the cottage is situated is an AONB which speaks for itself . The villages of Arnside and Silverdale are close by and we also took the train over the aqueduct for a day in Grange-over-Sands were they had the Prom Arts, a Jazz band playing and in the park a full Brass band concert playing themes from musicals, a thoroughly lovely Sunday. I'm saving the best till the last the owner Carol was more like a friend so kind and helpful anything you needed to know best places to eat, directions, local info etc. never intrusive but always on hand if I had one complaint it was a weekend is not enough to enjoy the delight of South Lakeland. This was a gem of a cottage.
I cannot recommend this cottage enough. It has everything you could possibly need. We were met by Carol, a lovely lady, who showed us round and explained a few things about the cottage and the area. The cottage is as lovely as it looks on the photos. It's very clean and comfortable, just the place you need to relax after being out all day. Thanks again Carol, we had a great time.
We experienced a very welcoming arrival following another horrendous journey on the M6. As we approached Carr Bank, it stopped raining, the sun came out, the birds were singing and everything felt very relaxing after the stressful motorway. Carol has done a great job of the conversion. The cottage had everything we needed in the kitchen, and more. It is furnished to a high standard, is immaculately clean, has great super fast wifi for those who need to be connected, great laundry facilities, a wood burner (that we did not get the opportunity to use as it was too warm!!). Private off road parking, private outdoor sitting area, 2 ensuite Double bedrooms, easy access to the wonderful estuary at Arnside, beautiful Silverdale and close to the Lake District without all the hustle bustle. The pheasants, blackbirds, cows and sheep were the only noises we heard, perfect. We enjoyed it so much we extended our stay and would certainly return. The Albion Pub at Arnside has a great patio to watch the tide, listen to the locals, and chill out.

I spent a week here with my partner and daughter and were very impressed by the property, facilities, location and owner.
The house is very very well looked after, the furniture all of excellent quality and the kitchen and utility packed with everything you'd need for washing, drying, cooking, eating etc.. after a hard days walking the comfortable and spacious living room was a welcome relief along with the large showers!
The location means it is very quiet and peaceful during the day and night but not too far from the local town and shops. There are some footpaths right next to the property making it easy to go for short or long walks through the woods and fields.
The owner looked after us well, giving a nice welcome when we arrived, quick but thorough tour of the property and was always around if we needed anything. Good honest advice on the local restaurants and walks.
Would love to stay here again.

If you like walking, comfort ,and peace & quiet then this is thoroughly recommended. Situated in the southern Lake Districts, the area of Arnside is , in itself , part of a designated AONB and is .. beautiful
However the major Lakes are less than an hour away for those that are that way inclined.
The cottage itself is tastefully furnished , and comfortable throughout.
Furthermore the owner treated us more like a friend than a customer.
What not to like!
I just hope this review does not make it harder for us to book when we go back.
