Really great location for cottage in a gorgeous valley with so many lovely walks / runs direct from the door. Cottage was homely and suited our needs well. Not as isolated as it might have been had there not been a campsite in close proximity. Could do with redecorating in a few places so cottage might not suit everyone but also felt like part of the charm of living in an old farmhouse.

Hi Guy, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your break, it's the perfect place to get away from it all isn't it? The location is stunning, I hope you enjoyed some good walks/runs. Until next time!

Beautiful setting, easy to get to splendid walks, comfortable rooms, well equipped kitchen, traditional cottage attached to farm, helpful farmer and owner of cottage. Could provide coat hangers in all rooms. Generally we were very pleased with the accommodation.

Dovedale cottage is beautifully placed for walking. We did a different route every day all within 15minutes drive.
The cottage is very cosy and the small garden was ideal for the dog and to sit out in the evening watching the awesome night sky and listening to the owls.
Having said all this we were rather disappointed by the “deep clean” meaning we couldn’t arrive until after 5pm.
The microwave was filthy, there were areas that obviously hadn’t been dusted for months. The shower room stunk of mould and the grouting was black in places. The downstairs bedroom also stunk of mould, nobody would be able to sleep in it.
The beds were very uncomfortable, luckily we travelled with a memory foam topper that made the bed bearable.
Sounds like it was awful but we did have a wonderful holiday.
Get the COVID-19 cleaning sorted!

Hi Mark, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so sorry to hear that some of the cleanliness wasn't up to scratch when you arrived at the cottage. I really appreciate you bringing it to my attention, thank you. I'll make sure it's addressed with the cleaners. You can always contact us here in the office with any issues and we'll do our best to resolve them as quickly as possible.
I'm glad you still had a wonderful holiday, it's a lovely place to get away from it all isn't it? I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
