Beautiful house and garden. Equipped to the highest standard. Have never stayed anywhere so well equipped. Stunning views, easy access to lakes. Owner Jane made our family very welcome with some little extras for my special birthday. Will definitely book again for future visits.

Absolutely stunning property in an ideal, peaceful, quiet location. Perfect host who is very willing to make your stay most enjoyable by providing information on the property and lots of local useful information. Property is very well equipped and fitted out to a very high luxurious standard, both internally and externally. Lovely welcome pack. House is located on a steep hill. Good central location with lots of options for different activities or relaxation in the area. Would definitely stay here again. Some of the activities we undertook during our stay as follows: -

Devils Porridge Museum Annan

Steam train from Haverthwaite to Lakeside walked to and from house. Railway station is located at the bottom of the road.

Tarn Hows and Black Fell from Coniston.

Walk via St John?s Helsington via Sizergh Castle environs to Levens Hall and tearoom.

RSPB Leighton Moss particularly to see marsh harriers, fantastic displays.

Day trip to Heysham interesting little historical village, and Morecambe Bay.

Hoad Monument and canal foot Ulverston.

Locals celebrated the Kings Coronation in the public park which was decorated with bunting, food, seating etc. Good day was had by all, very respectable, well behaved gathering.

Onwards travel to Newcastle area to stay at another property. Visit to Beamish Museum, fantastic day out for all ages, ticket also valid for 1 year. Also did a walk at Blanchland, another interesting historical village and visited the fantastic White Monks tearoom.

Great holiday.

Cottage Review:  

On arrival we received a warm welcome from Jane, the owner of Bishop Fell. The house is beautifully presented and very well equipped with quality kitchenware and furnishings throughout the house. The layout of the house is great with plenty of space for our thee families/generations. The house is very cozy and is spotlessly clean throughout. The bathrooms and en-suite are exceptional and of a very high spec.

The garden is on three levels and cleverly designed with seating on each level and we enjoyed eating outside despite it being October! Jane has even provided blankets to use outside! A picnic set of plastic plates/cups/glasses would be a great addition for families eating in the garden - especially for children.

Next to the house is a small well-equipped park which our grandchildren (6 & 9 years) enjoyed several times a day. It is a real bonus as children can be easily supervised from the house.

The property is in a small village and a great location for exploring the Lake District. The many walks from the house are enhanced by option of visiting Cafe Ambio en-route! Jane has provided lots of information about the local area which we found very useful and a Guest Comment book would be a good addition.

Jane lives nearby and although we didn?t need to, we felt confident that she would respond to any issues arising during our stay. We also appreciated the opportunity to catch up with her on the morning of our departure.

We would thoroughly recommend this property to others.

This accommodation is top notch; luxurious, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. Jane was very welcoming and the welcome pack was a lovely touch too.Lots of interesting places to visit - we particularly liked the The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness. We had a lovely holiday here - highly recommended.

Jane is the perfect host! Before we even arrived, she couldn't do enough to help us. Due to unforseen circumstances, we couldn't make the original date and we rang Jane to see if there was a possibility of moving the booking (if not we'd have lost the money). She was so understanding and offered us an alternative date. We booked through booking.com and she helped us liaise with them, even when it proved difficult. Booking.com mentioned a fee and Jane wavered this too! From the second we arrived, we had a warm welcome including treats for our stay. The house was perfect: decorated to the highest of standards, very spacious, exceptionally clean and included everything we needed. We asked Jane about restaurants nearby, she rang us with multiple suggestions. Unfortunately, the local area had a power cut and Jane contacted us apologising and asking whether we were okay - we actually weren't even affected. We were so thankful and would book again without hesitation. Thank you Jane and family, we've had an amazing time! Hope to see you again!

It was an absolute joy to spend a week at Bishop Fell and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Our family included me and my husband with two under 2?s plus grandparents and the property was perfectly situated for us; close proximity to many tourist spots but peaceful and tranquil on a night time. There is a park literally next door (there is an access gate in the garden) which was great for taking the twins into to keep them occupied.

The cottage is recently renovated and you can tell - all appliances and kitchen utensils are up to date and there are smar

We have just returned from our family holiday at Bishop Fell. The house is stunning and Jane the lady who owns the property was very helpful both before our holiday and during.

My elderly mum spent the week with us and all her needs were able to be met easily, due to bedrooms and a bathroom downnstairs.

Jane left us a lovely welcome pack for our arrival,with some lovely goodies.

The scenery is beautiful and to sum everthing up, our holiday was perfect.

We are already looking to book for next year.

Stayed at Bishop Fell for a week in July 2020. We were blown away by the quality of every element of the house. It looked fantastic in the photos but was even better in real life which is certainly very rare! Decoration throughout was beautiful and extremely well thought out. Facilities were ideal for groups/families staying together as there was plenty of space for the evenings and 3 gorgeous bathrooms. Self catered most meals most days while we stayed and found the kitchen to be exceptionally well equipped compared to many other holiday cottages I have sta

We booked this property to celebrate my Mums 60th birthday and we were not disappointed! The house is stunning and extremely well equipped - no expense has been spared. Ideal for extended families and the host Jane is great and looked after us very well with a lovely package of local goodies on arrival and great communication both prior to and after our stay. Book now, you will not be disappointed!!
