Hi David, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm sorry to hear that there were a few issues during your stay, I'll make sure everything you have highlighted is looked into. I hope you still enjoyed your break, the Borrowdale valley is stunning isn't it? I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

No washing machine is bad during winter. Coin operated electric meter is a definite no no after paying good money in the first place no proper jacket on the immersion heater and could only control with a booster up to one hour.

Hi Richard, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your break, the Borrowdale valley is stunning isn't it? I hope you enjoyed some good walks. The cottage information on our website clearly states that the electricity is run from a meter which accepts £1 coins so this shouldn't have come as a surprise but I appreciate your feedback. Thanks for letting me know about the immersion heater, I'll get someone to take a look at it. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

We spent a great week at Kiln How. Just a couple of weeks before Christmas and the weather was actually quite kind to us! The cottage is in a fabulous location at the end of the wonderful Borrowdale valley. Mountains available to climb from the doorstop. So on some days, no need to drive anywhere in order to gain some Wainwrights. Langstrath valley walk to the summits recommended - even if not scaling the peaks, this is still a lovely walk to Stake Pass to cross over to the Langdales. The owners Pete and Susan are friendly and welcoming - they left heating on so when we got there, it was nice and toasty (necessary in winter in the Lakes!). A lovely touch. We met them on a couple of evenings for a good chat. The cottage has everything needed for a weeks stay - it is cosy and the duvet was excellent (very warm indeed!). Finer details like the rubber mat for walking boots useful addition - the Christmas tree both inside and outside lovely. The Riverdale bar (next to Scafell Hotel) is literally over the road and is great and very dog friendly! Our dog Stanley loved his evenings in here - and enjoyed the attention from everyone! He even received some treats from the bar staff. Meals - including vegetarian - are excellent and a nice choice of local ales. Highly recommend this cottage - we will return very soon!

Hi Louise, thank you for taking the time to write a review. It sounds like you had a wonderful time. The location is stunning isn't it? It's such a bonus being able to head out walking and leave the car at home. I bet Stanley was in his element! Pete and Susan are the perfect hosts aren't they? Come back any time, you can be sure of a warm welcome.
