  • “I, my wife and daughter can only say that we had a lovely, restful time.”

    I have not said that it exceeded expectations because our e-mails etc with the owner, Sarah, prior to arrival had left us in no doubt that we were in safe, competent and efficient hands, and so it was. Fairoak is a lovely, homely place to spend time. There is nothing it lacks and all the information you require regarding how appliances work etc easily available, not to mention information about the delights Lakeland has to offer. Faroak is in the centre of lively, little Windermere, but peaceful and tranquil. You park up at the back of the cottage and watch the world go by through your bay window. Alternatively. you can go out, walk 50 yards, and there are eating places from all four corners, pubs opening up again and a relaxed atmosphere. You obviously choose what you wish to do with your time at Fairoak, but wherever you want to go, and whatever you want to do in the Lakes you're at it's heart. North, south, east, or west, it is all accessible. We would be more than happy to return and our thanks to Sarah, and those who look after it and made the whole experience so good!
