    “Amazing house”

    What an amazing house! So big and beautiful with lovely furnishings throughout. You can see the care and attention that has been put into each detail from the large kitchen with all modern appliances, the modern bathrooms with waterfall showers, through to the comfy seats and couches throughout.

    What an amazing house! So big and beautiful with lovely furnishings throughout. You can see the care and attention that has been put into each detail from the large kitchen with all modern appliances, the modern bathrooms with waterfall showers, through to the comfy seats and couches throughout. The house is so lovely you just want to stay inside and enjoy it. The house is on a private road in Portinscale which means it is wonderfully quiet and tranquil which is just what we needed. There are 5 bedrooms and sleeps 10 but we only had 7 so didn’t even use the 3rd floor. We had 5 adults and 2 kids and there was more than enough room for everyone to have their own space. And then there is the garden which the kids absolutely loved and could get lost in! The house is a 5 min walk from the farmers inn which is a lovely pub that serves fresh, hot, delicious food in the evening. It is 25 min walk through to Keswick which is a great little village and you are surrounded by walks to newlands and cat bells. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend the house. Some suggestions. If you like a proper mug of coffee in the morning, I would suggest bringing your own cups as the cups in the house are tiny and don’t satisfy your caffeine need. We have rented a number of holiday cottages before and you usually receive to a welcome basket with a couple of local treats on arrival so I was surprised that there was only a couple of teabags, sachets of sugar and coffee etc which were a bit uninspiring. Each confirmation email we received mentioned that there were no towels in the house so we brought loads with us and there were towels in every room so would be good for that to be removed from email to avoid bringing unnecessary luggage with you. The bed in the main bedroom is 2 singles zipped together which was ok but not the most comfortable.
