    “What a joy it was staying at Kirkstones.”

    The cottage itself was so lovely. Sparkling clean, well furnished and comfortable. Importantly for me not "fussy". The situation was majestic overlooking Skiddaw and every day we sat on the terrace. Looking at the views Would definitely recommend this cottage.
