- The cottage is a lovely little cottage but could do with some refurbishment to keep it up to the standard of the fee expected. For example the carpets are a little worn, the mattress could do with replacing, the sofas could be updated, and most of all, there was a damp smell. It would also be very nice if the if there was a log burner at the premises. Overall the property is basic. However the surrounding area is beautiful and I would possibly stay there again because of the location. The owners also seem to be very pleasant, and left a thoughtful welcome basket on our arrival. Also only one towel per person was left, although we did ask for another tower and the owner obliged very favourably.

Hi there! Many thanks for your feedback - it is a stunning location, isn't it? The owners have organised for a new carpet and are waiting for a suitable gap in bookings so that they can lay it they are also replacing the sofa. One of the quirks of an older cottage is that they can be prone to damp during wet or humid weather, and in The Lakes we can experience some inclement weather from time to time, most of these problems can be alleviated by adequately ventiliating the property. So glad to hear you had a warm welcome and an enjoyable stay.
