    “I booked this flat for our son and family who were holidaying with us in Windermere for 2 weeks.”

    Very pleased with the flat although not so pleased with the washing machine which didn't work throughout the 2 week period. It was actually fixed the day before they flew home! the shower also left a lot to be desired but apart from these two hic-ups, the place was great.

    Thank you for your positive comments about our lovely flat. The washing machine is only 18 months old but during your stay it appeared that the internal belt had slipped which meant the machine did not work. The Easter weekend plus bank holiday hampered our efforts to get the washing machine repaired instantly although engineers were booked in as soon as was possible, which was halfway through your 2nd week. We believed you were happy with the compensation accepted for the inconvenience and the local knowledge about the laundromat just 100 yards from the flat. The local office had not been informed of any issues with the shower so we assume that is a personal preference comment. We are pleased you thought our flat was great and hope you come to stay with us again soon. Property Owner
