“Dovedale is a gem, inside and out!”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Dear Christine,

Just a quick note to say thank you for letting us stay in your lovely apartment.

We had a wonderful week, climbing 24 Wainwrights! In the past we have been pleased if we've managed 5 or 6 in a week!
Rachel even went swimming in Brothers Water on her birthday (though she did scream a bit getting in)!

The thing about the flat was it was so homely. We cooked most nights - its the best electric hob I've ever used - I usually swear by gas - but now I'm a convert to electric.
We came back exhausted most days, but after a great nights sleep we were raring to go the next day.
The weather was very kind to us too, so we even had breakfast outside some mornings, watching the lambs frolic in the field opposite.

We are now very sad to be home after what was an amazing week.

Thanks again.

Cheers,

James & Rachel.

“The ideal Lakes retreat...”
Reviewed 8 February 2016 for a stay in April 2015

A delightful little hideaway perfectly located to explore some of the best Lakes scenery without even having to step in the car. Everything was thoughtfully arranged and communication with the owner was flawless. One to recommend.

“Wonderful and peaceful”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our stay at Dovedale was simply wonderful. The apartment was fantastic. It was in a great position and within easy walking distance between Glenridding and Patterdale. It was well set up and extremely comfortable. The location was great too. Plenty to do and we went on a number of the walks around Ullswater.
I would recommend it and we would certainly like to come back.

“Fantastic weekend get away!”
Reviewed 12 February 2015 for a stay in December 2014
1
person found this review helpful

My girlfriend and I were invited to a wedding the weekend before Christmas, this was also our first weekend away together, We planned to do some walking weather permitting so wanted somewhere convenient for the hills, close to the wedding venue (Glenridding) and cosy enough for romantic weekend. We found all of those with this apartment.

The whole property was clean, tidy and well presented. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The bed was very comfy and the room had big windows with a great view (when the clouds cleared!) The kitchen had everything you could need, and it was all clean and in very good condition. My only comment would be some basics like cooking oil, salt and pepper would of been nice as they are the sort of thing you don't think to buy when you are only going for a weekend.

On the whole we had lovely weekend and cannot say enough good things about the apartment. It is on the list of places to stay again when we go back to the Lakes.
