It was very clean and is beautifully decorated. Upon arrival we found a personalised note along with some chocolate and Prosecco. There was also a small basket with bread, milk, eggs, tea and coffee inside and chocolates next to the bed. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

We booked Dandelion Cottage when only seeing the external photograph but once booked, Kathreen shared internal photos too and it looked absolutely gorgeous! When we arrived we were not disappointed and the cottage exceeded all expectations!! It is really stylish and beautifully finished! Kathreen and Mike have clearly worked very hard to achieve such a high standard. It was spotlessly clean and we felt very safe in the current climate too. Kathreen and Mike are wonderful hosts, super friendly and very helpful. We were welcomed with lots of little treats such as chocolate, prosecco, a little welcome hamper and Kathreen even put some ice lollies in the freezer as we got stuck in traffic on a very hot day! So lovely! The hot tub is absolutely amazing and it feels really private with it’s own shelter. The log burner is lovely too, we did light this on a cooler night and it made the cottage really cosy. This would be amazing in winter! The cottage is in a great location! It’s just a short drive from Dalston village centre, 15 mins from Carlisle and 20 minutes from Hadrians wall. We also travelled to Ullswater and Cat Bells, both just 40 minutes from here. We went for a lovely meal at The Last Zebra in Carlise which we would highly recommend and also used Steve at Metro Taxis for the journey. He’s also super helpful! We felt very safe with him. We can’t recommend Dandelion Cottage enough! If you’re considering a visit, get it booked! You’ll absolutely love it! Thank you again Kathreen & Mike, we had a wonderful time!

The cottage has been beautifully renovated and furnished will all the amenities required for a relaxing break. Kathreen is incredibly welcoming and helpful and even left us some little treats which was incredibly thoughtful! The cottage is situated just outside Carlisle which allowed us to visit various places in the lakes with just a short drive. All in all, fantastic value for Money and we would love to return!

We enjoyed ourselves so much we have already booked to come back. Kathreen and Mike are great hosts and do so much to make you feel very welcome. The cottage itself is completed to the highest spec. Worth booking just to stay in bed all day it’s so comfy. Would recommend Dandelion Cottage to anyone!

Fantastic place, very romantic and decorated up to a high standard. Kathreen is very friendly and responds very quickly to questions and is very happy to help.

The furnishings are beautiful and Kathreen is so friendly. Little treats (we loved the chocolate strawberries and fresh bread) were so thoughtful and we were very pleased that the hot tub had its own cover - perfect even when it's raining! Close to Carlisle (15 minutes) we enjoyed a lovely greek meal at Alexandros (would recommend to anyone wanting a tasty meal if you're wanting a break from cooking!) and 40 minutes to Keswick . Had a great 3 nights here, would definely try to come back in future.
