Booking Again and Contact Details

If you would like to book this cottage or one of our other cottages you can book direct with us for a better price.

You can contact me on that email if you have any questions or problems.

Housekeeping and Recylcing

Please let us know if you require twin beds.

There is a note in the boot room about recycling and bin collection in the cottage. The boot room  key is the long key on the key ring left on the table in the dining room. Find it by going out of the back door and it’s the door on your left.

Also can I ask that you strip the beds you’ve used before your departure?

Many thanks for your help.


If you turn left out of the cottage and walk towards the bridge you’ll see a footpath sign on your right. You can walk over the fields towards Sparket Mill. At Sparket Mill you turn left and follow the road round until you get to a sign for Hutton and then onwards through the hamlet and back to Lacet.

You can walk along the road to Stoddah, (turn right from the cottage) and then on towards Matterdale valley. The road is quiet.


There are some cloths, soap, tea towels and oven gloves.

Fill water container at the back of the machine.
Turn on and lights will flash until the machine is ready to use.

Press button for large cup or small. You can fill up with more hot water if you like.
The used capsule will drop into the bottom of the machine. Simply pull the drip tray section forward to remove used capsules.

There is milk frothing machine if you like frothy milk.

Press temp and mode selection buttons so they pop out.
You can then select oven or grill. It is a fan oven. The door pulls down and then slides under the oven if you need it to. Select the temperature you need.

3. Dishwasher
Turn on
Select programme. I would use eco 50.
Then press the start button

There are some dishwasher tablets for you under the sink.

4. Blue Tooth Speaker
Turn on and the volume buttons are on the side of the device – plus and minus. This was obvious to my son, but not to an old girl like me! I wouldn’t download the app as the instructions suggest, just sync your device.

Wood can be bought from the Rheged petrol station on the A66 or at WCF  by Booths in Penrith.

4. Wi-Fi Password
Can be found on a label under the router, password is huttonjohn1.

It is the fastest Wi-fi available.

Septic tank

As we don’t have mains sewerage please can I ask you to not put sanitary products, cotton wool or nappies down the loo. Anything bulky will clog the septic tank and stop it working.


You can alter the heating by turning the room thermostats, on the wall, up or down.

There are guest soaps in all the bathrooms. Please note in the downstairs shower room it is not a heated towel rail.

The boot room can used for any muddy shoes and clothing. The key is the long one on the key ring with the back door key.

We love the red squirrels, but they like to be fed, so if you are keen to see them you can top up the nut box, I can’t guarantee they’ll appear but they adore hazelnuts! You can buy your own nuts from the Bird’s Bistro in Penruddock, but I have also left a box of nuts in the boot room.
