"We rebooked for next year as soon as we got home"
"We stayed in this spacious apartment in early October and
had a fantastic holiday. We stayed as a couple but two couples or
a family of four would be equally comfortable. The facilities are
first rate and, being almost brand new, are high quality and comprehensive.
The kitchen equipment even includes a rolling pin! A nice touch
but I imagine that if I had suggested to my wife that, on holiday,
she prepare a meal involving rolling out pastry, she would be more
likely to brain me with said implement. Altogether a highly recommended
holiday home - we rebooked for next year as soon as we got home."
- October 2010
"Top notch in every way"

Deja Vu and New Moon for food, and Brewery Arts Centre for drinks.
Will definitely be back! Thank you!" - September 2010
"...this is easily the best!"

Arts & Crafts house in a beautiful setting." - September

you and Becky, you have both created a wonderful place. Superb -
10/10. We've all had a wonderful week with lots of sunshine. 2 highlights:
the Settle to Carlisle train journey and lunch at the Masons Arms

of the Lakes. Thank you. Hope to come back." - July 2010
"The balcony wins Gold Award!"
"Wonderful week, in every way – the balcony wins Gold Award!
All so comfortable, even weather perfect. Warm welcome was nice.
The apartment was perfect for us; central location, closeness to
bus station (we buzzed about in the open-tops all over the place!),
but above all the easy, informal comfort of the beautifully furnished
apartment. The balcony made our visit feel as if we were abroad,
in the sunshine, watching the river below! The friendly helpfulness
shown by Paul and Doreen was much appreciated. Hope to be back!"
