Where shall we start.......an easy train journey from London to Penrith, the rental car (from Eden as per your recommendation on the site) waiting at the station, a very straightforward drive to Paradigm, and then relaxing in the most idyllic spot and spoiled rotten with your home baked goodies. The icing on the cake being flown to Honister Slate Mine by lovely Mark.   Who could ask for more.  In Arnie S's words.....I'll be back......again and again!  With our love, the Sisters Gina Fox and Julia Bradbury.

Hi Jan. I can't thank you enough for your hospitality. It made staying in such a lovely place, extra special. Could you tell me what tha lovely plum pudding was that we had on the lastnight?

Hi Guys, thank you for a great weekend, The Barn was amazing. Thank you Jan, the Slate mine and Via Ferrata is brilliant and not to forget the Gazelle flight. Keep up the good work. I hope all goes well with the BBC this week and keep in touch. Thanks again for a great 40th.

Thank you for a great weekend. We really appreciated the organising, cooking, cleanliness, friendliness and numerous personal touches...even think you arranged for weather to be better than forecast!!. Weekend was far more relaxing and exhilarating than expected and yesterday Michelle kept saying what a fantastic birthday present. We will recommend it to anybody looking for a special break and will hopefully return one day.
Thanks again and best wishes
Steve, Preston

Dear Jan and Mark,
We'd  just like to let you know what a wonderful time we had during our stay at Paradigm.  We have raved about the cottage, the scenery, the hamper, your lovely children and of course the helicopter to everyone at work, several of whom have seen the website and were genuinely keen to try Paradigm out for themselves.  The welcome we received from your whole family (and the animals as you can see from the photo) was so warm.  The hamper was amazing.  Its almost a pity that the weather was so good, I think we would have done the hamper more justice if we'd been in more.  The decor of the cottage is beautiful.  It was warm and cosy and beyond luxurious.
Many many thanks for a truly brilliant holiday,
Love and best wishes to you all,
Amanda, Cornelius and Ethan, Leeds

Can I say a big thank you again, we have had a fantastic time with you and some wonderful experiences. We couldn't have wished for anything better including the weather!!  Best regards
Lynne and Dave, Berkshire.

Hi Jan and Mark, I hope you are both well I just wanted to say thank you for a very enjoyable and relaxing week. You could not have been more attentive and everything was perfect. Once again thank you so much and we will be back next year.
Take care,
Basil and Emily, London
