Like the reviews before mine, the Bothy is well kept and very clean. While not a wine drinker it was extremely thoughtful to leave a welcome gift, the sweets went down a treat.

We were very lucky that all but one day was great weather and we were out most of the day exploring, so not a spoiler. Hide

We had a lovely 5 days and found the Bothy delightful, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The courtyard is enclosed by a portable fence which wasnt a problem for our two labs but if you have a more robust, boisterous dog you may find they could jump or knock over. Certainly a stay here wouldnt disappoint and we would stay again.

If you like being away from it all, near farms and animals this the place to be. The owners and neighbours are very friendly. The Bothy is exceptionally well presented and equipped with the best TV/Audio system we have ever seen in holiday accommodation, plus a huge collection of DVD's if you need entertaining. Be aware that the steps up to the bedRead moreroom are very steep and the headroom up there is limited. Nevertheless we can highly recommend The Bothy. Hide

Lovely little gem of a find in a great location, Alistair was also really friendly. The Bothy was cosy and we had everything we needed for our stay, and so did our dog! The wine and chocolates left by the owners was also a nice touch. It is a short drive from Windemere and there's also lots of great walks near by. Would definitely stay here again.
