"Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in the beautiful, cosy, comfortable Poppy Cottage, a real home from home. Truely one of the most comfortable and well equipped cottages we’ve ever stayed in."

"This is our third visit back to Poppy Cottage and it doesn’t ever disappoint……the attention to detail is just second to none and the cottage is perfect and also a testament to the owners. The surrounding areas are beautiful and walking in Dodd Wood, Whinlatter or around Bassenthwaite come highly recommended."
