The cottage was dirty and had a fly infestation. The shower leaked and caused flooding. I would never stay at this property again.

This cottage is quite nice but really away from everything. The opening and closing of the 2 gates were abit of a hassle as there was 3 cars with us so became a chore. The layout is very nice and the pool table is a nice addition as had lots of fun when in a big group. (11 of us). But the general maintenance wasnt that great. It was clean but when looking up at ceilings etc there were alot of spiders and webs which was off putting. Some of the handles of the ensuites were loose. The electric oven i was told was in working order as i had emailed prior to going for it to be checked but when we came to use it to my surprise wasnt working! So had to use the grill. That was a big let down. But We liked the fact that each bedroom had a shower so there was no waiting around.

Hi Meena, thank you for taking the time 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'm really sorry to hear about the oven and that there were a few other issues too. I really appreciate your feedback and will make sure everything is addressed, thank you.
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

Great area , Garden could do with sone attention, lots of pots and crockery . Comfy beds, but on stripping the beds as requested for leaving the mattress covers in 2 rooms were ?Need replacing,
Pillows ready for Change in some rooms.
Shame the owner doesn’t answer the emergency number provided . We had a shower issue which needed sorting but he never answered our texts or phone call?
Let us down a bit..
But I didn’t spoil our short stay
