It was an all round fine experience. We found nothing at all to complain about. Out of the owner's control is the relative absence of walks without a vehicle from the house which do not involve entering or crossing the A6.
We stayed in this self-catering cottage for 1 night (2 adults) to break up a long road trip. It's very comfortable - lots of lovely rustic wooden carpentry and a wood burner (although we didn't need it as we stayed in July). There's lots of wildlife about, there's a river weir basically on the doorstep and the village is quiet; great for walks if you're staying longer.

A beautiful old house. Old features well preserved. Modifications such as on-suite facilities, all very tastefully carried out in keeping with the age of the building. Beautiful location. Suits visitors who are happy with the remote location. We had a very happy stay, a family gathering for a wedding at nearby Knife Hall. A visit to nearby Lowther castle, pparticularly the adventure playground was the perfect family day out.
We stayed at talbot house as a base for a glorious summer wedding, but we had a lovely surprise, in that, the surroundings were fabulous and we would love to come back for another trip. The cottage was quaint, clean and well equipped with great views.
