We loved this house, it was the best equipped place we have found so far for catering for a large family. It was a cute little village, a little difficult to find in the dark (we used Matterdale church, Penrith in google maps as the turning is opposite this up a track). We were disappointed though as many others have been in the lounge. It has a beautiful old fashioned feel to it however the sofa, armchairs are so old that they are dreadful to sit on after a day walking and I have joint problems and found them too low to the ground and ended up putting spare pillows on the seat to be comfortable. The rest of the house is beautifully updated and I feel this really needs attention as it totally lets the property down. We will keep an eye on this property to watch and see if the owners take this on board and if so will definitely book again because other than the lounge, its perfect!

Hi Victoria, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it?
I'm sorry to hear that you found the living room furniture to be uncomfortable. I really appreciate your feedback. I have discussed this with the owner and she has explained that she's aware the two red chairs aren't as comfy as they used to be but rest assured, she is planning to replace them as soon as she's able to. I hope you found the other chairs comfortable and were able to put your feet up for a relaxing evening!
I hope you can plan a return visit soon, you can be sure of a warm welcome.

Really beautiful house, plenty of space for our party of 5: well equipped spacious kitchen, useful utility room for washing and drying your clothes and great bedrooms plus 3 bathrooms. All rooms very nicely decorated. There’s a view to die for, just stunning, and so peaceful with the added bonus of lovely sheep grazing by your back door. Great location for exploring the Lakes too.
The one thing that lets this gorgeous house down is the living room and particularly the chairs and sofas. They are uncomfortable and very worn. After a long walk out on the fells it would be wonderful to take a well earned rest on comfy chairs. The decor in the lounge could do with an update too it’s a bit unwelcoming atm.
The rest of the house is superb- just lovely.

Lovely cottage in a fantastic location with good access to walks from the door or within a few minutes drive. The reception room, which was a little dusty on arrival, worked very well for us, especially as we walked all day everyday, but is not 'cosy cottage' if a more relaxed holiday is planned. All other facilities are superb. I would happily stay here again and would highly recommended the property.

I'm sorry to hear that some of the cleanliness wasn't up to scratch when you arrived. Thank you for letting me know, I'll make sure I address it with the cleaner. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
