    “We've enjoyed staying at Bridge End cottage for 13 years now because of its excellent location and facilities.”

    After all this time though we've noticed there are a few maintenance issues that need addressing if this property is going to 'exceed' peoples' expectations. ...

    After all this time though we've noticed there are a few maintenance issues that need addressing if this property is going to 'exceed' peoples' expectations. 1. The exterior paintwork on all the windows is flaking/peeling badly now and they need repainting, 2. The cream facing is coming away from the draw fronts and some of the cupboard doors in the kitchen due to heat and age, 3.The turntable in the microwave does not rotate. 4. The absence of WiFi is the only missing facility and is a particular problem due to the poor signal strength of mobile networks in Coniston. None of the above spoilt our stay in any way and are not serious issues, so we look forward to visiting Bridge End again sometime in the future.
