“Excellent place to stay”

person found this review helpful

This was one of the best presented properties we have hired for some time and exactly matched the details on the website. The owners have taken note of previous comments about the kettle, toaster and cooking utensils and replaced them all.
The slope does get quite steep at the top so it pays to follow the advice given in the arrival instructions and park just beyond the one and only house on the drive.
The owners do not advertise having WiFi because they have doubts about it's speed and reliability but we found it worked perfectly in the week we spent there even if somewhat slower than we enjoy at home. Bob gave us helpful tips (like a footpath into Bowness) but did not speak unless we initiated the discussion.

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed 27 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This cottage is quite private but easy walking distance to Windermere. We really enjoyed our 3 night stay and would stay again if we visited the area. My only comment would be the lack of kitchen utensils and the China needs to be updated. However it is a lovely cosy cottage.
