    First time visiting Cumbria and the location was ideal. New sofas which were brilliant and a new bed. Tea, coffee and sugar also available but no milk!! Maybe the little catering milk cartons would be a welcome addition as we had intentions of taking milk but forgot it. Few little niggles such as no instructions on how to use the dishwasher, cooker and hot tub which we got around by asking the owner about the hot tub. Also parking permits no explanation on how they operate which we found out was a disc parking pass for visiting Brampton. A few instructions on how to use these kind of things would be great. The biggest problem we found was the bed. The mattress had no support and you could feel every spring and when you moved the whole bed moved which resulted in disturbed sleep. Maybe a mattress topper would solve this problem a bit. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay and would visit again

    Fabulous little cottage with a brilliant hot tub. Just the thing to return back to after a long day out. I would definitely recommend this little gem of a place. My only negatives are that the towels were a little small but this is no issue really, and it would be nice to have a pub nearby to walk to on an evening but this is just a personal choice. Great place to chill and relax with the sheep nearby bleating happily. We spoke to the owner who was very friendly and made sure all was in order for us. We will certainly be returning to The Fauld really enjoyable stay.
