The flat is very well located with direct access to walks through The Borrowdale Valley and peaks around.
The kitchen utensils have been reduced to a minimum due to COVID so if you are planning to cook regularly make sure you bring some extra items. We managed with what was there but it felt a bit like glamping.
Make sure you take extra toilet paper and kitchen towels.
Two downsides in the bedroom, the duvet has been covered with some sort of a plastic based cover which is not breathable, therefore get ready for hot and sweaty nights. The curtains are covered with mould, not ideal for allergic people like us!
Overall the place was comfy enough and apart from the mouldy curtains we think it might be COVID rules affecting its normal function.

In the cottage details it mentions dishwasher, but there was not one in the flat. The bedroom curtains were mouldy. Everything else was fine.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I really appreciate your feedback about the curtains, I'll make sure we get those sorted, thank you. There's no mention of a dishwasher here I'm afraid, perhaps you were thinking of another cottage?
I'm glad you enjoyed your break, the location is stuning isn't it? Just perfect for getting out on the fells. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
