The hatch to the garage was our less comfortable part of the house, and this was expected from the reviews. A photo would be useful on the website and my parents in their 70s did manage it (best plan as we were upstairs with our children) but a little more depth for the hatch so backs don't get caught would have been great. A kettle in the annex would be one less ascent for a cuppa in the morning :o) . Otherwise, the house was very clean and comfortable, and great location to Whinlatter MTB / forest trails access from the house, easy cycle distance and terrain into Keswick too, aswell as other areas around the Lake District. We had a lovely stay, thankyou.

Cosy and warm cottage, comfy beds, good shower pressure and excellent views. However the fridge/freezer were iced up and needs defrosting.

Hi Smiler, thank you for your comments and flagging the fridge/ freezer issue, which I will raise with the owners. I'm delighted to hear you had such a wonderful time and made the most of those amazing views.
