“The Perfect Winter Retreat!”
Reviewed 20 June 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I thought I had already left a review so apologies for the delay...

We stayed here for Valentines Weekend as a gift from my parents for Christmas. What an amazing place! We had already stayed at another Rowley Estates Property over Christmas so we knew what to expect, however it exceeded our expectations. Such a quaint property decorated to excellent high standards. Plenty of room for our small dog to go outside (we did keep her on a lead when taking her outside as there were sheep just across the cottage so we knew she'd be off as soon as she saw them!) A hamper basket was there upon our arrival along with plenty of fire wood. I would highly recommend staying at any of the Rowley Estates properties - I don't think we'll be staying anywhere else when we visit the Lake District again! Thank you again for letting us stay in the most perfect Lake District cottage!

“5* stay in the Lakes”
Reviewed 7 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Jennys Croft really does have the wow factor. My family and I really did say this as we walked through the front door. What greeted us was an exceptional accommodation that had been very tastefully converted. Everything that we needed for the week was there. This included a really good welcome hamper full of local produce and super quality bed linen. We had a wonderful stay for the week. We'll done The Rowley Estate and thankyou.

“Spacious, well equipped, dog friendly and very relaxing!”
Reviewed 6 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This was the second time we had stayed at Jenny's Croft and once again we were not disappointed. The cottage is an extremely relaxing place to stay. It is very well equipped and the owners have really thought of everything. The welcome basket (including a pack of dog treats for each dog!) is amazing and very thoughtful. The living spaces within the property are extremely spacious. Home away from home. Lovely outdoor spaces too. A great location for accessing Penrith (a lovely town), the Pennines, and also the Lakes. We will be back. We love it here now!
