Thank you for your wonderful review of Ash Gill Cottage.
We are glad that the photos show an accurate representation of the house and it's facilities, which is always great for any future guests wishing to book also.
We hope you enjoyed your trip and glad that you found everything you needed, and yes we agree, a torch is a 'must-have' as it does get incredibly dark up in Torver - great for stargazing and meteor showers in clear dark skies.
We hope you had a great journey back to Australia and if you're ever back in the UK, I hope we can welcome you back once again.

Thank you for taking time out to write a wonderful review of your longer than usual stay with us.
It is fantastic to learn that the house can deliver a comfortable, normal day to day living experience by 6 adults staying longer than the usual weekend or week long visit, and serves as an ideal base for those who wish to explore the delights that Lakeland and the local area has to offer.
We are glad that you would recommend us, it was indeed a pleasure to welcome you to the local community for your time with us (our local quizmaster for the Sunday night quiz enjoyed your regular attendance). We hope that you completed your projects in good time and wish you much success with them and your future studies.
We also hope to welcome you back to Torver and Ash Gill Cottage at some point in the future.
Kindest regards to you all.
