    “We had a fantastic stay at Lake View and didn’t want to leave.”

    The views were stunning and the cottage was spotlessly clean. It was quite warm in the cottage, despite there being no underfloor heating on and the bed was a little uncomfortable. It would have helped to have had more information available in the cottage, for example we were only aware of our terrace area because the housekeeper let us know. It was the perfect place to go every day to feed the ducks! Maybe providing some local tourist information or details of buses etc would have been useful, ...

    The views were stunning and the cottage was spotlessly clean. It was quite warm in the cottage, despite there being no underfloor heating on and the bed was a little uncomfortable. It would have helped to have had more information available in the cottage, for example we were only aware of our terrace area because the housekeeper let us know. It was the perfect place to go every day to feed the ducks! Maybe providing some local tourist information or details of buses etc would have been useful, although we found this ourselves. A microwave would also be a useful addition. Having said all of that I’d go back tomorrow if I could. The perfect base for a relaxing break away.
