- The cottage is perfectly adequate but lacking in areas. The cleaning was not really up to standard with quite a few cobwebs, even by the kitchen cupboards! The 2nd floor sash window was surrounded by cobwebs, as was the chandelier. The kitchen is well equipped and cosy. The mop, bucket and Hoover were left by the side of the dining table, not sure if this is where they live, if so it would make for limited space for a larger family. The lounge is nice and comfortable with a good amount of seating. We had to use the fire as the heating went off early and said not to adjust. There is a door out to the very small garden but the garden is not enclosed. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms spacious, especially the 2nd floor bedroom. Sadly it is lacking in decor and warmth. The photos of the house make it look a lot more modern than it is. It is a shame because it could be stunning with a little care. The main problem is the showers. The ensuite shower my husband says is dangerous as it's either freezing cold or scalding hot with very little power. He refused to use it again! The main shower if you have on full power is again far too hot, even if you turn the dial all the way to cold there is no adjustment in the heat. If you turn it to eco you can adjust the temperature but the power is then lacking. These issues have been reported since 2018 and clearly nothing has been done about them. If the ensuite shower cannot work properly it shouldn't be advertised. The property is decent and some parts, like the lounge, are really nice but the complaints need to be looked at to bring it up to standard. There is a nice short forest walk just out the door and the property is in a convenient location. Overall we had a nice stay with a few niggles

Hi Clare, thank you for taking the trime to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your break, it's a lovely place to escape from the hustle and bustle for a while isn't it? I hope you enjoyed exploring this beautiful part of the Lakes.
I'm so sorry to hear that some of the cleanliness wasn't up to scratch when you arrived at the cottage. Thank you for bringing it to my attention, I'll make sure it's addressed with the cleaners. I really appreciate your feedback about the showers too, I'll make sure we get them looked at.
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
