    • “We stayed here for a long weekend Monday to Friday. First impressions is we loved the homley feel of the cottage and the extra items there that made our stay easier (washing machine, iron etc) there were a few issues with the house like the standing mirror in the bedroom doesn’t stay in a fixed position and the garden area could have a lot more done to it so it could be enjoyed more but it didn’t ruin our holiday. The location is perfect as it’s walking distance from shops, pub, water front and couldn’t asked for a better position. Unfortunately we didn’t managed to get a parking permit due to our own fault but it was £15 for a weekends parking just slightly up the road. The parking was a slight issue as the cottage is directly on a single track road so loading/unloading has to be done double time and as we stayed over in June it was very hot so slept with the windows open and the noise was loud as lots of bands playing but as expected due to location. Would recommend and would stay again”

    • “This was my 2nd trip too the lakes. 25 years was the last one, Was so impressed with the description of cottage and its location. Excellent standard of cottage. Considering it a rental it is decorated as Tho you are staying in a real house rather than a holiday let. Location is great 10 min stroll to bowness with all the usual shops. Winderemere is about the same which is right where the boats are. Overall fantastic place location. I would certainly book this cottage again. Car park 5 min walk but who care you on holiday.”

    • “A lovely comfortable cottage. The only let down was the piles of rubbish bags in the back yard. Some of which had split open.”

    • “Well situated cottage. No immediate parking but permit given by cottage holiday company allowed us to park in nearby car park (2 mins walk). The cottage was warm and clean and had almost everything you'd need. It is close to pubs but if you're not usually in bed before 11.00-11.30,it's not really an issue. Back bedroom is a lot quieter than front one. Would recommend it as a good location to tour the lakes. Only 2 small requests. 1. Fix the guttering above the front door as it creates a waterfall directly above the door. 2. Nowhere to hang things up in the back bedroom at the moment. Can I suggest hooks on the back of the doors ?”

    • “Had a lovely few days break except for a couple of things. No parking outside was bit tricky but we managed with car park few minutes away. The cottage was spacious enough for the 2 of us and our dog. We thought it could have done with deep clean as we found dust in various places if you put your hand down (must add we were not checking for dust) but at least the bathrooms were spotless. The tiny backyard was filthy needed a good hose down to remove moss which could be slippy. Rooms nice furnished though making it feel cosy and cottage like. My main PROBLEM though was the WINDOWS particulary downstairs. There was NO PRIVACY at the windows you could see straight into lounge, there were solid pull down blinds but that made the room dark (venetian or verticals or nets would have been better). Fully aware that the age of the property attracts attention but it is not nice when you are sitting having a drink and tourists are taking photos of you i.e. standing outside the window smiling and snapping away. For us that spoilt what was a lovely few days need break.”

    • “Great location for everything. Bedrooms lovely and the lounge. Kitchen could do with a few more untensils as we like to cook. Shower lovely just watch when wAlking into bathroom as very tight fit. Back yard could do with a clean up as very slippy. But would recommend to friends.”

    • “This is a well-appointed little cottage. It was clean and warm when we arrived. We really enjoyed our stay. If quiet is important to you - the cottage is surround by pubs and at the weekend can be quite noisy. Lighting in the lounge is a little dim - I knit and the light was not quite sufficient to be comfortable. The second bedroom has no clothes storage other than very small bedside table drawers. I would suggest that a couple of open shelves under the window would be really helpful - otherwise things have to stay in your luggage. Loved the doves who perched opposite the bedroom window”

    • “Overall excellent service, the cottage was well proportioned. The location is very central but could be a little noisy at night during weekends. Decor was very modern and cottage was suitable for our young baby. One bedroom was lacking in space to store clothing. In other cottages we have stayed at we have appreciated additional touches such as availability of dvd / games collection.”

    • “I wish I had been made aware of the availability of a parking permit before check in. By the time I had read the info leaflet in the living room I had already paid for a weeks parking!”

    Mr Incledon, Surbiton, July 2018

    • “The cottage was warm and welll positioned. There was no info left regarding wifi passwords and no towels so had to buy some! Found the throws on the sofas a bit tatty and the rug was awful. Having no fire was not good. The main bedroom could do with curtains as the light floods in round the sides of the blind and no storage in the kitchen meant the hoover, ironing board and outdoor chairs were just standing in the kitchen. The wet room was a plus to wash the dog and the shower upstairs was good although the extra large shower screen made things a bit tight. Also my husband is 6 ft 3 and struggled with the size of the bed.”
