Edinburgh GB Couple
This was a cosy cottage in a beautiful area and away from it all. It's good value and has nearly everything you need (see below for a couple of suggestions). We stayed for a week. It is only a 5 min drive from the Troutbeck Inn which has an excellent menu especially the Vegan pie and steak and ale pie. There are loads of leaflets in the cottage giving ideas for walks and things to do. We were a 20 minute drive from most of the popular hills and very close to beautiful Ullswater. Keswick is also worth a visit loads to do and an excellent pub The Wainwright.

There are a few things which would make the stay a wee bit more comfortable. The kitchen in the cottage could do with a clean especially the cooker hood which stank of stale fried food making it a bit unpleasant to be in the kitchen unless window wide open for some time. It maybe just needs a new filter or just cleaned? The kitchen cold tap needs a new washer as it is hard to switch off and the bathroom sink cold tap needs a new washer too. Asides from this the cottage is nice and warm and in a beautiful location. It would be handy to have some fresh condiments such as sugar, salt and pepper and tea bags. We brought our own towels as instructed but given that laundry is going to be done anyway it would be a nice touch to have towels provided.

Hi Dot, very many thanks for taking the time to leave your detailed comments, I really appreciate it and will certainly investigate them further for you. It really is a wonderfully cosy cottage, isn't it? I'm delighted to hear you had such an enjoyable stay.

Kitchen a little small. No shower curtain made showering difficult. High up out of the way giving great views but no phone signal. Made sleeping easy though as it was so quiet. Didn't use local amenities so could not rate them really. Would have preferred a sofa but one cannot please everyone otherwise very good.

Hello Keith, Thank you for your review. You picked the perfect location to escape the hustle and bustle for a while and to be surrounded by exquisite views. I have noted your feedback and will look into this further. I'm pleased you had a really great stay and I hope you will plan a return visit to the Lakes very soon.

Overall Kirksty Brow was clean and tidy, but for anyone older the bath would cause problems. As it wasn't easy to use and the only other problem was the tap in the kitchen which driped all the time we where there. It is a ideal location if you like to be out of the way. While we were up there in September the whole week was more like summer with lovely dry sunny weather.

Hi Dennis, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your break. You couldn't have been luckier with the weather could you? It makes all the difference.
Thanks for letting me know about the tap, I'll get that looked into. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
