Fantastic base from which to explore this lovely area. The cottage is comfortable but compact - would definitely be a squeeze for four adults! Some frustrations with poor internet access (which was a key requirement for us!). As the router is located in an adjacent property we couldn't access it when a reset was required. This won't be an issue for many folks on holiday, but our circumstances are what they are and we had to make use of access from the village. This wouldn't stop us recommending the place to others, but was annoying as it could so easily be remedied.

Hi Mike, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. The location is perfect for heading out exploring isn't it? The views are stunning! I'm sorry to hear you had some issues with internet access, had you let me know I would have been happy to get the problem sorted for you, the router has now been replaced and is working perfectly. I hope it didn't cause too much inconvenience. If you'd like any help choosing somewhere to stay for your next visit to the Lakes just get in touch and I'll be happy to offer some suggestions.

Location was perfect for walking from the door. The accommodation was fine for us and, as a result of the good weather, we had no need to regard the fact there was no washing machine. Beds were comfy, everything was what we expected and we would certainly recommend renting for a walking holiday.
There were only a few points which we thought needed to be mentioned.
The fire alarm is linked to the upper house so, if it goes off due to smoke detection upstairs, it will only go off once the upstairs occupants have addressed the problem. This needs to be made very clear to the occupants of the cottage below.
Although expecting reduced mobile coverage we were surprised to find the information booklet in the cottage says only Vodaphone cover the area.
Although the view from the terrace is lovely we were only just able to see it standing up and unable to appreciate it once sitting down. Perhaps the gardener could be persuaded to prune back some of the bushes and hedging.
However none of this detracted from our enjoyment or our holiday.

Hi Margaret, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your holiday. The location is perfect for heading out on the fells isn't it?

This is my second time at Ghyll Foot. Lovely property in a beautiful setting. Would definitely return for yet another holiday, and would recommend to others.
