The cottage has a whole range of facilities, to cater to your every whim. If there's something you're curious about which is not covered below, please get in touch with us and we'll do our best to provide it.


There is parking on site for two cars directly in front of the cottage, as well as secure bike storage, meaning you don't have to leave your bikes on the back of your car. All electricity and wood for the stove is inclusive, as are linen and towels. There's a boot room to take off muddy boots from a day on the fells, along with a hose outside to wash down mucky paws! A cot and highchair are also available for our younger guests.

The cottage sleeps at least 6 people in comfort, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There's one double bedroom with en suite shower room, one twin on the ground floor which can be a super king size bed with family bathroom nearby, and another twin room with a shower room next to it.

The kitchen has a brand new range cooker with two ovens and gas hobs. There is also a microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine and tumble dryer.

Relaxing and Entertainment

You'll never be short of things to do whilst you're staying with us. The cottage has complimentary Wireless internet access. There is also a state of the art low-energy LCD TV, with Sky and a DVD player. For the bookworm we have a bookcase full of books, and there are plenty of board games and jigsaws for rainy days and the whole family. There's also a CD Player and Radio in the kitchen, so you don't have to miss the football on Radio 5 live, just because you're away. The cottage also has a number of leaflets and walking guides to help you get out and about, and the nearby George and Dragon Pub in Garrigill offers good food and a nice pint.

Easily Accessible

The cottage has been built to be easily accessible. There are three shallow steps to the living room and if required we can provide a ramp to enable wheelchair access. The main bathroom is on the ground floor and there is also a ground floor bedroom too. These are not completely wheelchair accessible but cater for the needs of a person with reduced mobility.


Up to two well behaved pets are welcome at the cottage. Poop-bags are included, as well as Isaac's Byre pet-tags, with the phone numbers of both the cottage and the owners, meaning you can be safe in the knowledge that if your pet was to stray, people would know where to phone to get them back to you.

We also provide a boot room which you can use to keep your pet contained at night time if you wish. As with most holiday lettings, we ask that pets are kept off the furniture and do not go into bedrooms.

Our welcome pack

When you arrive at the holiday cottage you'll be treated to a pack of biscuits as well as tea and coffee. There's also a welcome pack which contains all the essential information about your stay. You can also browse it here (PDF).

If you wish to order a starter pack of groceries we can organise this for you if you contact us in advance. These will be sourced from the local shops. Cost will depend on your exact requirements.
