“Just an explanation of our rating.”
We thought that the photos gave a somewhat false impression of the size of the rooms.
The lighting in the whole cottage, except the bathroom, was very poor.
We arrived after a long, very wet journey to find a cold cottage. There was no initial supply of logs or coal that we have found in other cottages. Having to read tiny heating instructions in poor lighting was not a good start to our holiday.
The leather sofas are ideal for a cottage allowing pets but we found them very uncomfortable.
The situation of Barn Roost was perfect for exploring the western edge of the Lake District and we found it well supplied with cooking and cleaning utensils. The actual barn conversion has been achieved to a high standard but the heating, lighting and comfort need to be addressed.
