Great little cottage. Good location, great village pub. Friendly host. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a small romantic cottage. Adam from Swindon (22 July 2017)
Wonderful little cottage in a superb location. Anne from Purley (15 July 2017)
Excellent quaint country cottage.lots of things to do in the south lakes. Owner very helpful if needed. Great location and very peaceful. Vivien from Newhey (10 June 2017)
The cottage is in a truly beautiful, peaceful location, the owner is absolutely lovely and the parking is really easy but the photos do not fully convey how tiny the downstairs living space is. We did not feel it was worth nearly £700 for a week, or warrant a 4* rating. The mattress was uncomfortable, I could feel springs through it. The towels were small (bath towel rather than bath sheet size) and mine was non too clean. we could only make the wifi or the tv work at any one time, not both together. We had to switch to router off & on again to change between the two. the hot water heater was on a timer and made such a noise in the early hours of the morning that it woke us up so we switched it off. (we could have had it on during the day, we just didn't bother). however, the shower that a previous guest had mentioned was wonderful - plenty of hot water and pressure - so that must have been seen to. The cooker was an old, free standing one with the enamel chipped off at the top edge so it looked scruffy. there was no shaver socket and a shortage of power points in general. We could only find 1 in the bedroom for shaving/hairdrying/electric toothbrush & charging 2 mobiles. The bedroom had a skylight that was covered by a blue roller blind but it didn't keep the morning light out and it woke me at 5am each day. On the website it was stated that there was a shared washing machine & tumble drier. I don't know where they were and they were not mentioned in the property information in the cottage. (we didn't ask as we didn't intend to use them). all in all we felt that things had been provided to meet a checklist and obtain the 4* rating rather than to be of any practical use (ironing board in a cupboard disguised as a beam behind the sofa). this a perfectly lovely, tiny cottage but it was not worth the money. Lesley from Cambridge (03 June 2017)
It's lovely, but just too small, which made it uncomfortable. Lots of cushions, but no space to put anything. . we were also expecting a decent enclosed garden, with grass etc, which is what's on the cottage speck, so the dog could have a wander and do its business. the small lshaped patio was a poor excuse for a garden and did not work well with the dog. Customer 5 from Essex (29 April 2017)
A superb cottage in the most beautiful location. Perfect for a short break away from hectic lifestyle. The views are simply stunning, just to add the dog loved it as much as we did Paul from Blackpool (27 March 2017)
Cragg cottage is advertised as 4 star and romantic. It is anything but. It needs time, effort and money spend before I would consider it value for money. Beverley from Cheshire (21 January 2017)
A really lovely cottage that is perfect for a quiet trip away. We think you'd probably need a car to make the most of this place because there are so many places to visit in the area on day trips, but we had some lovely walks right from the cottage. The local pub is really nice and very close! . the cottage is well equipped, especially in the kitchen - we didn't feel like we were struggling with a holiday home's limited supplies. . the fire was absolutely great and the whole place felt really warm, cosy and homely - we were able to settle in within hours of arriving, which was exactly what we needed! . one slight negative is that the shower could have been better in terms of temperature and power, but it wasn't anything that would put us off from coming again. . thanks for a lovely stay! Confirmed Guest (02 January 2017)
Lovely cosy cottage, full of character with an open fire, all set in a beautiful location. Perfect. Simon from Oxford (12 November 2016)
Cute cottage, small and quirky, local pub is great and dog friendly. Local walks also accessible and varied. Easy access to all major tourist towns. Lovely views. Not suitable for a large dog though! Isabel from Burbage (15 October 2016)
Lovely cottage in a great location for getting around. Owner very nice. nice to be able to walk out of door and explore local country side and have a drink at local pub. Karen from Droitwich (01 October 2016)
This delightful cottage is an excellent choice for a long weekend or a longer stay. Set in a quiet village near to lake windermere but away from the crowds! the cottage is very cosy, well equipped and with a lovely area for sitting in the sunshine. We set the fire on a cold evening, yes in august!, and the sitting room was super cosy! please note that the ceilings are quite low. You can access the central lakes quickly but also are within easy reach of the quieter and very scenic coastal areas to the south on morecambe bay. It is also very handy for a super local pub, with generous servings and a range of local ales - easy to walk to and from this! all in all, I can see why this is booked up ! Sue from Glasgow (27 August 2016)
A cosy cottage big enough for two, in a lovely quiet location Louise from West Midlands (06 August 2016)
A thoroughly nice cottage,great location Derek from Teesside (28 May 2016)
The cottage was absolutely lovely. Very cute and beautifully decorated. Good location for the pub (which was great for dinners) and easy driving access to lots of other places. The only slight negative was that the cottage was very cold in the evenings. With better heating this place would be absolutely perfect! Rhiannon from Solihull (14 March 2016)
A little drive to the nearby lakes but compensated by the lovely views on the way. Local pub is really welcoming and great beer. Walks around the area are so peaceful. One weekend is not enough time!! can't wait to return Eleanor from London (15 February 2016)
Snug, exceptionally well kitted out cottage, with open fire, comfy furniture and an exceptionally comfortable bed. Although it rained during our stay, the surrounding countryside is stunningly beautiful, and we found many accessible walks- good for a whippet off the lead - and dog friendly pubs with excellent local food. Highly recommended. Jo from London (04 January 2016)
A lovely quaint cottage. even smaller than we were expecting soon got used to it though. fortunately brought a load of towels for the dog with us as the weather was horrendous & nowhere outside to wash him before going into the cottage. Marie from Burnham, Slough (12 November 2015)
We had a lovely week at cragg cottage. We found it to be very homely and enjoyed the home comforts that it offered. Debbie from Kent (31 October 2015)
Pleasant and cosy cottage, ideally located to explore the lakes and surrounding area. Cottage a little dark inside but although compact well equipped. Slight negatives was the lack of internet and noise of the neighbour heating/boiler cranking into action during the night. Positives was the open fire, lovely location with decent pub around the corner and general cosiness of the place. Greg from Southgate, London (26 September 2015)
The overall experience was great, but there were two minor inconveniences, the first was the inability to connect ti wi fi, and the other was some implement in the adjoining property (probably a boiler)cutting in and out during the night. Other than that we had a lovely week. Albert from Leigh (19 September 2015)
We had a great week at cragg cottage. It was a perfect place to stay whilst looking around the lake district. There are nice walks on your door step and the white hart do delicious meals and beer. Also the old hall farm is nice place to visit. Especially the ice creams and cream teas. Stephanie from Kidlington (12 September 2015)
Lovely cosy cottage in an idyllic setting. gteat location for access to many attractions. short walk to an excellent pub (the white hart), serving excellent food and local beers Colin from Barry (29 August 2015)
Only stayed 5 of the 7 days. . my choice of cragg cottage (for personal and business reasons) was based around it having wifi. Unfortunately this wasn't the case. I appreciate the whole of the area has relatively poor reception and the cottage walls are very thick but I think it wrong to advertise something you can't provide. Despite the owner leaving a note which states if you have a problem let her know immediately, it took me over two days to track her down. All voicemails to her landline and mobile were unanswered and when I told her this... she replied "oh did you phone" ?. the tv also lost its signal on two evenings during our stay. . I accept that a holiday to the lakes is all about relaxing and actually getting away from things like the internet but it was essential that I had some form of communication. The phone signal is equally very poor but I could get an outside signal about 25 yards from the front door. . the cottage is very small, lacking light but clean, cosy and quaint. While very disappointed because of the issues stated , I wouldn't wish to put other people off staying here if my issues aren't a priority to you Keith from Westbourne (15 August 2015)
In many ways an excellent cottage and certainly a superb location, unfortunately early morning noise, (starting from about 4:30 am) generated by the adjacent property's hot water plumbing meant an enforced early wake up every day. This was the only negative, but a significant one, which would prevent us choosing this accommodation again. (was not put off by the bat in the bedroom, or its landing on my pillow, though some may find that prospect a little worrying!) Georgina from Kingston-Upon-Thames (18 July 2015)
We had an extremely relaxing holiday. This was due to the cottage being in a beautiful peaceful location. It was everything we could have wished for, with an excellent village pub the white hart within walking distance. Helen from Stourbridge (27 June 2015)
Lovely little cottage, just the right size for 2, very well equipped. Beautiful location, very quite and peaceful. Chris from Leicester (16 May 2015)
The cottage had a relaxing, homely atmosphere and was well equipped in an individual, characterful style. The owner was on hand to welcome us, and went the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable throughout the week, without being intrusive. Road access and parking were excellent, and the cottage was perfectly located for the whole of the southern lake and coastal areas. Christine from Ely (18 April 2015)
Really nice cottage for 2, ideally located for exploring the southern lakes. Had a very enjoyable stay. Confirmed Guest (11 April 2015)
Lovely cottage in a great area with a super pub within easy walking distance. Would stay again. Kevin from Norwich (04 April 2015)
Very nice little cottage in a lovely location. Excellent local pub down the road and a great spot between lakes. Adrian from Guisborough (16 February 2015)
Lovely cosy cottage ideally located for exploring the southern lakes and with good dog walks from the door. Good friendly pub five minutes walk with real ale and hearty food. Would definitely come back to bouth and cragg cottage Jacqui from Newcastle Upon Tyne (29 November 2014)
We had a wonderful time in the lake district and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at cragg cottage, which was small and cosy and a lovely base to return to each evening. the open fire was a really nice feature, which we enjoyed in the evenings after a great meal at the white hart pub that is a five minute walk away. We are looking forward to returning to the lakes and will certainly stay at cragg cottage again. it was exactly as we'd hoped it would be. Paul from Baughurst, Hants (01 November 2014)
I really loved the cottage. It's very small and downstairs is quite dark, but it had a lovely feel, the fittings and furniture were lovely and it's super cozy. It was exactly what I needed as a retreat from london life and I would happily go back many times. Kizzy from London (18 October 2014)
Cottage.was cosy and loved the real fire, also enjoyed seeing rabbits every day in the garden and lots of birds, especially the daily visit from the robin. Gibb from Crawley (23 August 2014)
This is a very small but pleasant cottage full of character in a delightful location. the local pub, the white hart, is excellent. the problem we found was that the small double bed was very hard and there was an antiquated hot water system which involved a timer, which sometimes activated the water heater in the middle of the night. as the heater was located in the bedroom the noise of it heating up awakened us. if you wanted a bath you had to remember to switch the heater on in advance. the grouting around the bath was black in places and needs renewing. the skylight in the bedroom had an inadequate blind, so that the light came in at 5am. Not one good night's sleep was had! Hugh from Bristol (19 July 2014)
The property was really nice and cosy and in a lovely location. However there are bats in the roof space which aren't mentioned in either the booking details or the cottage information on arrival. The bats were noisy at night and may cause some guess concern and sleepless nights. Neil from Burbage (12 July 2014)
Lovely cottage, such a shame about the sky light in bedroom with no blind so we're woken up at 5am every morning :((. recommend stay in winter but not summer. Customer 38 from Northants (05 July 2014)
Pretty little cottage although we hardly slept as we had to keep the dog downstairs which she's not used too. for that reason we wouldn't stay again . . Louise from Dunfermline (24 May 2014)
A great little cottage in an ideal location. Small but quaint and perfect for 2. The cottage had everything we needed and the open fire was perfect to come home to after a long days walk. The local pub the white hart, which is very close, is a must as the food is fantastic!! Hatty from Basingstoke (31 March 2014)
We loved our week at cragg cottage. it was so relaxing - we didn't want to leave. we were a little apprehensive about being warm enough (after reading a couple of the reviews) and the cottage felt a little cool on arrival but we just needed to turn the storage heaters up that night - we lit the very efficient fire too which was lovely. the pub in the village was good, and coeliac friendly. oh, and jean the cottage's owner let us store our canoe in their garden! Christine from Oxfordshire (08 March 2014)
Cosy! Gigi from York (15 February 2014)
Had a great stay...the location being near a good pub was a bonus. The location was a little away from the more tourist hotspots. We could imagine this would be tough in the busier periods on the roads so would suggest you provide some local maps, routes..we did one over to windermere and it was great Richard from Sheffield (21 December 2013)
Very much enjoyed staying in cragg cottage. A very charming little cottage in a beautiful location with a lovely pub ("the white hart") just a short walk away. A very peaceful and serene part of the world. Fabulous holiday. We would definitely stay at the cottage again. Chris from Guernsey (26 October 2013)
Pretty cottage with nice open fire in good location and ideal for local walks and southern lakes. However the cottage was in our view too small, even for 2 people, not helped by the absence of natural light downstairs! kitchen equipment was limited, we couldn't always get the water hot enough and the musty 'doggy' smell was off-putting and affected my wife's chest. The local pub praised by previous guests is in our view overrated - we found much superior examples a little further afield! Philip from Morpeth (12 October 2013)
Lovely area but local roadworks caused havoc! never been to lake district before and we were delighted with the scenery. Richard from Broadstone, Dorset (10 August 2013)
A nice cottage but very dark inside, I was expecting more for the money we paid. Jen from Crowborough (27 Jul 2013)
Secluded, lovely open fire, sun all day long on patio Tina from Essex (22 Jun 2013)
A nice large airy bedroom and bathroom on upper floor. Good location for exploring southern lakes, walney etc. A very good pub within easy walking distance. Great for walks in the surrounding countryside Gillian from Canterbury (25 May 2013)
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage and the location, we also . appreciated mrs read ((jean) leaving us alone to enjoy the week.we found the cottage had everything we needed for our stay even down to the birds feeding on the wall just outside the window. A big thanks to jean for mailing onto us the stuff we left at the cottage. Peter from Braintree (04 May 2013)
Great location; light airy bedroom; excellent pub 300 yards away;. good parkng space although the directions to the house mention one set of three cottages on the way when actually there are two sets of three, so we managed to get confused. Sue from Edinburgh (09 March 2013)
Lovely cosy little cottage and very well equippied. Lots of walks close by. Amanda from Blackpool (05 January 2013)
This was our second visit to cragg cottage and it was even better than last time, gorgeous quiet small village cottage with cosy lounge with open fire & night storage heaters to dry your wet shoes on (we went in oct!) plus spacious bedroom with vaulted ceiling, 2 mins walk to friendly village pub with excellent food - the steaks are divine! and lovely walk from cottage to huge & quiet nature reserve (end of road turn right & up track) where we spotted a deer at 100 yards! - would recommend trips to allan bank nat. Trust property near grasmere, and a walk around loughrigg tarn near skelwith bridge too - both stunning. Overall fantastic cottage - we will be back! Joanna from Gloucester (06 October 2012)
Lovely old cottage in a good location to explore the southern lakes. Andy from Grays Essex (01 September 2012)
Great little cottage in good location for walking, access to windermere and the local pub which provided good food Steve from Burnham On Crouch (21 July 2012)
The beauty of its location, friendlyness of the local people Craig from Farnborough (02 June 2012)
Quaint, cosy, comfortable, open fire added to the charm of the cottage. Excellent food from the local pub and many good walks from the property. Customer 57 (May 2012)

A lovely, cosy cottage with an open fire; quiet location with a good pub within walking distance. Customer 61 (October 2011)
Cragg Cottage was in a beautiful setting, very quiet. The wood and walks just a few minutes away were very quiet and peaceful, as was the whole setting. The cottage, we found inspirational and romantic. The owner very welcoming and helpful. We would very much like to return for another fortnight next year. Customer 62 (July 2011)
