Great kitchen, extremely well equipped and we used it a lot. Nice modern bathrooms and all very clean. The main criticism was the double bed which was very hard and lumpy but fortunately we didn't use all the bedrooms so were able to change to using one of the single beds. In view of the virus we felt there were far too many unnecessary articles around the place. It is a good house for families being near the beach as well as access to the Lakes.

The house was in a nice location, the garden had a beautiful view. Take care pulling into the drive and coming out as cars drive at ridiculous speeds. The general cleanliness of the kitchen etc was ok but the dining table was very sticky and I did wash everything before i used it.The oven was very greasy and not very clean so cleaned that to.One day the heating and hot water malfunctioned but the owner notified me where the immersion switch was by text and the heating was rectified the following morning. Fortunately we had lit the open fire so was warm downstairs. The office / entry has a very musty strong damp smell which was quite unpleasant.The day after the smoke detector started going off about 11pm and all night and when i mentioned it when we saw the owner the following morning i was told to wiggle the wire to stop it, I am sorry but they do not cost alot of money and obviously this appears to be a regular thing. When the house is full with Guests,something like a smoke detector at the foot of the stairs should work perfectly. We did leave that morning before our departure date as had had enough by then. The kitchen was cleaner than when we arrived. I would just like to finish off by asking when you leave a house tidy and clean why the £100 breakage deposit takes 14 days to come back to you. Its been a week and its still not been refunded.

Hi Trish, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your break, the location is stunning isn't it? I'm so sorry that some of the cleanliness wasn't up to scratch when you arrived at the cottage. I really appreciate you bringing it to my attention and will make sure I address it with the cleaner, thank you. I'll make sure all your other feedback is looked into also. I do apologise for the delay in receiving your damage deposit, everything is taking a little longer than usual at the minute. If you still haven't received it please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get that sorted for you.

Really wonderful find in a beautiful setting, found the house to hold lots of unique pieces which made each room interesting to spend time in. The property felt extremely spacious, and the kids had a fabulous time playing inside and out. Great outdoor space for the kids to play in and so many places of interest nearby. A real gem in its price range. We found the owner Kim to be extremely attentive to our needs, and not at all invasive given she lives in a property next door which was our only concern when booking. We will be back.
