Enjoyable week. Great views. Was a bit further from the central lakes than we thought, but not a fault of the cottage. Very comfortable, great space for socialising for 2 families. Quiet spot except when cars pass as it is right on top of the road.

Hi Michael, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm so pleased you had a great week, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it? Those views really do take some beating! I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

We had a lovely holiday spent as a family of 6. We spent quite a lot of time at the house due to terrible weather but we had loads of space, comfy living room to relax and a big kitchen to make family meals. The view looking out over the country side is amazing. We really enjoyed our stay.

Overall this was a pleasant place to stay and clearly it has been recently refurbished to a good standard. Well located for the walking we wanted to do and although on a roadside the sound of traffic was tolerable. We used the upstairs bedroom only as there were only two of us but we were aware of a smell of damp in the downstairs rooms. There were a couple of things in the kitchen we would have found useful (a sieve). Intrigued by the photos of the couple in the living area.....would have loved to know the history of the house.

Hi Jane, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your holiday, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it? And the views are stunning! I'm glad you enjoyed getting out for some good walks. I really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for improvement, so thank you. I have discussed your feedback with the owners of Lakenhow and I'm pleased to confirm that damp isn't an issue. The cottage has recently been refurbished, with all of the walls re-plastered and new fixtures and fittings installed. They have also bought a sieve, so thank you for your recommendation! The owners have shed some light on the photos in the living area, which I thought would be nice to share. The couple in the picture are the original owners of Lakenhow, Michael & Marie Proctor. They converted Lakenhow into a house, from an old disused barn, just after they got married in the late 1970s. Sadly, Michael & Marie died some years ago but Lakenhow is now owned by their niece. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon!
