“Winter Weekend Break.”
Reviewed 11 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Our party of five adults and two children thoroughly enjoyed our short break here. Well equipped and comfortable home from home. It was a cold and windy weekend but we were snug and warm in the cottage. The children played games and dressed up, they never once missed the television.
We had a large family meal on Saturday, it was nice to relax around the large kitchen table which also doubles for table tennis.
It would be nice to return for another visit.
Many thanks Jo.
Chris and family.

Great location and peaceful, Jo (the owner) was very helpful and patient with us as we had many questions! We have a son with autism and have lots of safety questions and safety of location. The Longknowe was perfect, beautiful surroundings. We spent our time relaxing whilst the children played outside in the fields and baking on the AGA. Its so lovely I have requested to re book!! Thanks Jo !! Martina & gang

Beautiful comfortable cosy cottage with exceptional kitchen area. We enjoyed large family meals around the massive kitchen table and enjoyed cooking on the aga. Perfect for a family gathering.

“A wonderful retreat”
Reviewed 10 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Our extended family, aged 9 months to 73 years enjoyed a week of walking in the hills, visiting the coast and castles and relaxing at The Longknowe. We were able begin walks from the house which was a treat and when we used the car the coast was only half an hour away. The four bedrooms are arranged with two bedrooms at each end so that two families can use the space by sleeping at an end of the cottage each (great when the 9 month old wakes up at 5 each morning! and she is not yours!). The kitchen is amazing, especially the size of the table. Ten of us ate, chatted and drank around the table for hours. The visitor book has so many entries from people who return to The Longknowe over and over again; it really is a very special place. Oh ... and the views, absolutely amazing!
