- First and foremost, it’s a lovely location overlooking the fells, it is spacious and a great base for the western lakes. Trips to the ratty, Ennerdale show,the Beacon, Ullswater steamers and somewhat surprisingly litter picking on the beach - were all enjoyed.
The cottage had electric heaters that work well when needed - it wasn’t cold enough for the fire and the on demand water heater was good. There are lots of guide books provided and we enjoyed the dvd library too.
So the “could do better” - the cleaning was poor, the grill pan had the previous occupants greasy reminders, wash the pans before using them and we left the mouldy spatula as we found it...giving these were all around food it was disappointing but we got over it. The leaky fridge (new seal needed) and dripping loo (use a pan to stop wet socks! - just lower your overflow a bit) need sorting.
Overall it was a great base in a beautiful part of the world and we’d go back
