“Beautiful cottage overlooking a lake with great walks and pubs nearby”
Reviewed 19 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed at Lakeview last weekend and had a wonderful time. We were a group of 5 adults & one child ( 5 yrs old ). Its a bit hard to find in the dark and signal in the area is really bad but once you find it it is well worth it. Pamela recommended a great walk over the hills to a fantastic pub called the The Old Gate which has a roaring fire and excellent food. Would definitely recommend it! The house was well equipped and the linen smelt amazing! My nephew loved the zip wire in the garden. All in all we were very happy customers :)

“Great house but left with sour taste over deposit”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed at the end of June with friends for my 50th birthday. We have not written a review until now because it has taken this length of time to get our deposit back.
We had read a number of reviews where others had been forced to have to chase for the return of their deposits. Having sent the 'owners' an email about it and not receiving the courtesy of a reply my husband had to telephone and ask why the deposit of £150 had not been returned yet; particularly as we had left the house in pristine condition.
It is also true what other renters have said and that is that the long list of high charges for 'damages' does make you somewhat ill at ease during your stay.
I would suggest that you make the onwers aware of any issues at the point of taking over the rental of the house as all is not quite perfect; but it is not far off. One small point is that the fridge is too small for a house that sleeps up to 8.
Enough nagatives as it is true to say that the house is wonderful and it is in a perfect location for enjoying some lovely walking and cycling.
It is a real shame that the issue over the deposit has left a sour taste as other than that we had a great week at Carsington View.
Tip - don't bother with the Miners Arms. True it is convenient but that it about all that can be said that is positive.

“Lovely views, lovely house but has some negatives”
Reviewed 24 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful location, with stunning views of Carsington Water. It was immaculately clean and tidy, the beds and bedding were of very high quality, you can be sure of a good nights sleep here.
Certain things disappointed us about the property, we agree with a previous review, the tv was old, no music system available, despite having a downstairs bedroom there is no toilet on the groundfloor, oven grill ineffective, dishwasher broken and the patio area is very small and not private.
A few things to beware, your deposit will be cashed 6 weeks prior to the stay, something which we have never experienced previously. As a result the list of very heavy charges in the visitor manual meant that we felt it necessary to report minor issues to the owner including a broken dining chair and the dishwasher. The owner did respond in a positive manner and attempted to resolve our issues promptly.
We arrived 20 minutes early after a long journey and were advised by the owner to return at the appointed time agreed in the rental terms, whilst we accepted this it would have been nice to have been given a more welcoming alternative suggestion.
Finally, I did have to contact the owner 1 week after departure to find out when I would receive the deposit back, which I have now received in full.
