Great Break Away - Dog and Children !!

What a super break away. Pepper cottage has all the good touches that so many places forget about. A kitchen kitted out as your home one is. Open plan living with timed underfloor heating meaning no worries trying to work out how it works. The puppy had a field day running around the safe garden, and the board games created much hilarity in the house. The great view every day with day trips out created the break that was so needed. Definitely one to return to. Thanks to all the Coley's for the reset!

Pepper cottage was lovely and clean and had everything we needed

Pepper cottage was lovely and clean and had everything we needed including a hairdryer and was very wheelchair friendly. The cottage more than met our expectations and has been furnished to a very high standard. The owners were extremely helpful, friendly and made us feel like nothing was too much trouble, you can tell they genuinely care about the people that stay in their accommodations and want them to have the best experience possible - they even leave a wide selection of games to play. We enjoyed going to the near by places that are all on your doorstep and the amazing views from the cottage.

Location is beautiful - the views from the patio at the back are stunning

We spent 5 lovely days at Pepper Cottage. Location is beautiful - the views from the patio at the back are stunning. The walk to skelworth bridge is idyllic and basically this is a great base for many lovely walks. Cottage itself is very well equipped. Shower was a great hit! All appliances and facilities were of a high standard and I wonder hesitate to come again or recommend to others. Thank you al 7 of us (5 people and 2 dogs) had one of best breaks ever.

Stylishly decorated

Stylishly decorated with all the facilities you need in a home from home. Sliding doors off the open plan living accommodation frame a beautiful view of trees and fields. A quiet and peaceful location yet extremely convenient access for visiting some of the Lake District's popular attractions such as Ambleside, Windermere and Tarn Hows.

The property is fabulous

We’ve just returned from a wonderful week at Pepper Cottage. The property is fabulous, very well appointed, nicely furnished with a gorgeous bathroom and shower room. We were lucky enough to benefit from lovely weather and loved being able to open the bi-fold door onto the patio. We had our 2 spaniels with us and the enclosed garden was perfect for them. The location was also great, we frequently walked into Hawkshead which is a nice little village with a number of shops, pubs and cafes. Coniston, Ambleside and Windermere are all a short car journey away. We don’t often return to a holiday rental, it’s a case of “been there, done that” but I’ve no doubt we’ll be back soon. Giles and Will were both so helpful and provided a great online guide prior to our arrival which told us everything we needed to know about arrival, departure, the property and the area.

I’d highly recommend Pepper Cottage

My wife and I booked the cottage for a short break and found the cottage to be really cosy with a Traditional exterior and very modern & comfortable interior which was perfect for us. Location is set within a very scenic & quiet area not too far away from Ambleside with unspoilt views made even more special whilst sat comfortably together on the corner sofa with the log burner going. There are numerous scenic walks which can be undertaken from the cottage suitable for all abilities. We really enjoyed taking our dog out on one of the lake walks followed by a cosy evening in by the fire. The underfloor heating is really nice too so you’ll always be warm when it’s cold outside. I’d recommend having a bath as you can lay back and enjoy the views of the countryside which is a really great feature of the modern bathroom. The cottage is equipped with plenty of plates, cups, cooking utensils etc making it easy to cook so you’ll feel right at home. The shops are only a short drive away too. I’d highly recommend Pepper Cottage to anyone looking for a quiet break to get away from it all.

This is an exceptional cottage very modern

Clean Really warm amd cosy with lovely views .it has just about everything you need for a comfortable stay . Our only negative was a lack of a coffee table infront of the sofa we found we had to have things on our knee or the floor . The double bed wad really comfortable. We didnt use the second bedroom as there was just the 2 adults and 3 dogs. A very luxurious bath made our stay very special.. we had got a bit lost when we first arrived but soon found our way about .it is really peaceful and quiete..we would definatly return here

Pepper Cottage is one of the nicest holiday cottages I’ve stayed in

Very high spec fixtures and fittings and very well equipped. It’s in a beautiful location but a car is essential. Parking on the driveway for two cars is a little awkward and quite narrow.
