Thank you for a lovely stay in Millrace Cottage. The location is spectacular and first impressions were overwhelming in the best possible way. The booking process was very simple, and communication from the start has been very responsive and easy. Millrace cottage was just the job for our needs; cozy, private and comfortable. The hot tub was in a great location and well maintained, wifi was great and plenty of sitting room and storage space.

The booking process via the Coppermines website was clear and efficient. We needed to change our original booking due to the pandemic and agin this was completed easily. The location of these cottages is excellent and the reason we selected this particular destination. The hot tub was a nice edition which we used each day.

The cottage was great, in a stunning setting, being overlooked by The Old Man of Coniston mountain and all the other crags while sitting in the hot tub was wonderful. We will definitely be booking this cottage again.

We stayed here this weekend for a cheeky getaway in the Lake District. We weren't disappointed with breathtaking views, a cute little cottage with its quirks on the doorstep of Coniston Old Man and being able to enjoy the sunset in your own private hot tub... what more could you possibly want! Would highly recommend! And dog friendly!
