Great base for exploring the Northern Lake District.

By Rob on 31-Oct-2023

This was the perfect base for visiting the Solway Firth coast, and the northern Lakes. The cottage was everything we had hoped for, clean, quiet, with lots of nice touches. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable relaxing week in the Lake District. Even the weather behaved.

Great stay

Fantastic location, beautiful cottage. Very grateful for the lovely welcome gift pack and our cockerpoo also loved her treats too. Very well equipped for dogs, & an added bonus of a dog shower at the stables. We had a slight problem with hot water, but it was sorted instantly and generously given a lovely bottle of wine as an apology. Very well equipped house & kitchen, every thing you will need is there. We will definitely be back. ❤

A lovely holiday cottage

By Mike on 08-Aug-2023

Our second stay at Gamekeepers Cottage. Just as good as the first stay - a perfect cottage for some peace and tranquility in the very grand setting of Tallentire Hall. The cottage has everything you need and the location is just a short drive to some of the best scenery and walks in the Lake District. There is outdoor dining furniture and a fire pit on the garden terrace for the enjoyment of guests and an initial supply of kindling and logs is provided to get you started. A great feature of this cottage is the very large drying cupboard under the staircase which is excellent to get your kit dry if it’s been raining. The local free house pub (5 min walk from the cottage) is also great and prides itself on the quality of its real ales - just the ticket after a day out walking. We also ate there on Thursday evening - really tasty food and very reasonably priced too.
