This cottage is in a stunning location and a good position for walking in the surrounding fells. It has easy parking and a really nicely finished shower room off one of the bedrooms. However, there are a number of niggling things that let it down:

- it has a washing machine, but nothing to hang wet clothes on to dry

- it is advertised as having a DVD player in the main room, but in fact this is built in to the small TVs in the two bedrooms, with no DVD player in the main room

- there is nowhere to hang coats

- there seems to be little soundproofing between the cottage and the accommodation above, so we were woken each morning by heavy footsteps and excited children

- the outside seating area with table in the pictures doesn't exist — rather just an old bench is provided

In addition, we couldn't get the spotlights above the kitchen area to work or the tin opener!

Some people mention a problem with mattresses in the bedrooms. We didn't find these to be too bad.

It is a shame, because the cottage could be first class, if some of these things were sorted and more attention paid to detail. There is no doubt it is in a beautiful, peaceful area of The Lakes. We enjoyed our stay generally, but found these issues rather frustrating during our stay.

Hi Peter, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your break. The location is hard to beat isn't it? Just perfect if you enjoy getting out for some good walks.
I really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for improvement and will make sure everything you have mentioned is looked into, thank you.
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

Stunning views, comfortable cottage, so much walking straight from door, ideal for our family, would definitely stay again if seating outside permanently sorted

Hi Ruth, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your break. The location is perfect for getting out on the fells isn't it?
I've noted your comment about the outside seating, I'll look into that for you.
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

This is a beautiful cottage with an excellent location. It has a beautiful finish in the majority of the property with hardwood floors, new shower and bathrooms etc, although is slightly let down with a couple of points that prevent it from being a 10/10 property. Namely, the beds are either broken, or just really poor quality. The double sags in the middle, meaning 2 people sag into the middle making for a really poor nights sleep. The finish in the second bathroom is let down by the shelf which is nearly falling off.

Largely minor points, although the beds are important. I would book again, but that bed could easily raise it to a 10/10 property rather than 7 or 8

Hi Andy, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it? And how about those views? The Newlands Valley takes some beating!
I really appreciate your feedback about the beds and the bathroom shelf, I'll get someone to take a look, thank you.
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
