Hall Hills is a group of award winning cottages in rural Cumbria, close to the Lake District, Scottish Borders and Hadrian's Wall. There are five completely different cottages in total, sleeping from 2 to 6 and when booked for exclusive use can accommodate up to 20.
Accommodation elegantly designed, comfortable and very well equipped - our hosts had thought of everything we might need.
The location was quiet and beautiful - it was lovely in the evenings to sit on the patio and enjoy the views of open country, with no other person, habitation or vehicle in sight or sound.
The hosts, Tim & Jude, were very friendly and welcoming and always ready to respond to any request for advice or help.
The provision of large amounts of printed information - pamphlets, maps, etc - about visitor attractions and shops was very helpful.
We had a really happy stay.
We stayed at Methera with our two little girls in July.
All the details were taken care of, including the owners taking delivery of our food shopping order and putting it all away in the kitchen for our arrival - a lifesaver.
Nothing was too much trouble. They set up two cots, changing mats and extra towels.
The laundry on site was a great bonus, together with lots of local info and dvd library to keep us entertained.
Seeing the cows visit the water trough each morning and evening was a lovely bonus which our two year old loved.
We loved the hot tub though we kept it a kid-...more
Good location - handy for Ullswater etc
Folly was equipped with everything you could need.
It was a very nice stay- the towel rail needed a clean in the bathroom and some areas needed a little TLC.
However nice touch with the welcome cheese, crackers and milk,
Our first visit to Hall Hills, and more than likely not our last. I was expecting ( hoping? ) for something a little more homely bearing in mind it's location, but it was a pleasant place to rest on a night. The location is utterly fabulous, with more than enough places to walk, or just sit out and listen to the wildlife.
The only "downside" was the parking; if the adjoining properties are occupied, it's a little tight if you have a larger car, or there are more than one car per property.
