A charming 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage with lovely views and fully enclosed garden in Gosforth, Western Lake District.
Corona Virus / Covid-19 Update
We are currently closed until 4th July at the earliest. You can book for later in the year and 2021. We are offering a refund or a booking transfer to any guests who are booked if we are closed by the government due to Covid-19.
We are delighted to announce the addition of Brock Cottage in Gosforth, Wasdale, Lake District.
Brock Cottage is a charming period cottage with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, sleeping 6 which has been sympathetically renovated in 2018. The ground floor has a large open plan living, dining, kitchen with log burner; perfect for socialising and relaxing after a long day of walking! It has a separate conservatory sitting room. Upstairs, Brock has 2 bedrooms (1 king, 1 superking or twin) and 2 bathrooms (1 with bath, 1 with shower). The sofabed in the living room allows Brock to sleep 6.
To the front, Brock has parking for 1 car (additional cars can be parked at Kellbank Inn just down the road) and at the back it has a fully enclosed garden with a mixture of mature borders, paved seating area and lawn.
Brock cottage welcomes up to 4 dogs (please ask if you would like to bring more as this may be possible). Dogs are allowed on the sofa (please bring and use a clean throw); but they are not allowed on the beds. Please poop scoop your dog in the garden. Dogs may be left for short periods if they are settled and crated. But with so many dog friendly pubs and restaurants, you and your dogs will feel very welcome.
Short breaks available all year.
Please click on the dates you are interested in to find out the price. We have two changeover days, Mondays and Fridays, and any date which is underlined on the calendar is a potential changeover day. Once you have selected an available date, you will see a pop up box with prices for different stay lengths.
How do we go about booking our holiday?
Select the dates you are interested on the calendar above and fill in the query form or complete the online payments. We accept all major credit cards (except American Express)
Alternatively give us a call on 07772 720674, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/toddandgunncottages
Deposit is 25% of the cost of the holiday. Residual balance and a £100 security deposit is due 8 weeks before your holiday. If there are less than 8 weeks to your holiday at time of booking, then full amount is due to secure your booking.
Do we accept short breaks?
Yes we offer short breaks all year either Mon-Fri or Fri-Mon.
Do you charge a damage deposit?
We charge a damage deposit of £100 in Brock cottage. This is included in the second payment and will be returned back to your credit/debit card. It will be given back in full, once the property has been inspected after your departure. Any damage caused for any reason, will be deducted from your deposit before we make a refund to you.
Can we provisionally book a holiday?
We need a deposit payment to secure a booking (or a full payment if it would be less than eight weeks until your stay) – I’m afraid that we aren’t able to take provisional bookings without a deposit.
Do we need insurance?
We do not provide personal insurance for you or your pets, so we recommend that you get insurance just as you would if you were going on holiday abroad.
What happens if we need to cancel?
If you need to cancel, please notify us as soon as possible. Should we be able to relet your dates, we will then refund you what they have paid less a £50 administration fee to cover the costs of re-booking the holiday. We do not guarantee to be able to re-book the holiday
Can we transfer our booking?
Once the cottage has been booked, we can transfer your holiday provided you are within the cancellation period. If you’d like to transfer a different date, your original booking will be cancelled (see above question) and a new booking set up.
Do you provide linen?
Yes we provide bed linen and the beds are made up for you. We provide bath towels per guest, 1 hand towel, 2 tea towels and 1 bath mat.
Where do we pick up the keys?
We will send you full instructions regarding where to get the keys upon receipt of final payment. We use a key box system.
What time can we arrive at the cottage?
To ensure enough time is allowed for thorough cleaning in between guests, you will be able to access your cottage from 5pm onwards. You must leave the cottage by 11am on the day of departure.
What do we need to bring?
Bedding is provided in the cottage and the beds will be made up for you when you arrive. We provide 2 tea towels, 1 hand towel, 1 bathmat and 1 bath towel per guest. We do not supply throws or towels for your dogs. Please make sure you bring enough with you. An initial supply of toilet roll and washing up liquid will be provided but it is a good idea to bring a spare supply with you.
What happens if there is a problem at the cottage?
You should make contact with Sarah on 07772 720 674, send us an email to email@example.com or message us on Facebook.com/toddandgunncottages.
Can the cottage accommodate any additional people?
No we do not allow additional people in any of our cottages. Maximum occupancy is 6 including babies/infants.
Can we have fireworks at a cottage?
Because the cottage is in a very rural area, with livestock in the surrounding fields and because of its position among other properties, we do not allow you to set off fireworks, as this could disturb the other guests, or animals nearby.
What about mobile phone signal?
Due to the rural location of our cottages you may struggle to get a signal on your mobile phone, although the signal is improving all the time. In some places like Wasdale there is no service at all. Eskdale has a booster mast for the Orange network however the signal is limited for most other providers. Lake District towns tend to have a reasonable signal outside but you might find the signal disappears once you go inside. For the same reason you might find in some locations that internet and wifi is limited or slower than you are used. We do provide free Wifi in the cottage (you will find the code in the info pack in the cottage), but this is probably slower than you are used to at home. If you have any concerns please give us a call before you book your cottage and we can discuss your requirements in more detail.
