We had a wonderful week at the Orchards, it had all we needed, was clean, comfortable and homely. It is in the most beautiful part of lakes with many walks on the doorstep. Thank you.

Hi Sue, thank you for your lovely feedback. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your break. It's a real home from home isn't it? And the location is ideal if you enjoy getting out for some good walks. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

Nicely set out apartment
Well equipped kitchen
Clean and tidy
Drying room for wet gear
Stunning location
2 parking spaces

No control of heating. It is not possible to put the heating on or off, nor turn the temperature up or down! This is controlled by owners who live in apartment upstairs so expect to freeze at night and during the daytime.

Leaking bathroom ceiling.

Stained spare / additional duvet in wardrobe (yuk).

Owners played loud music upstairs until 3am on the Weds night so no sleep for us.

This property is advertised as being suitable for wheelchairs. It is NOT an accessible property. Other than having a bedroom on the ground floor this should not be considered an accessible property and is NOT suitable for wheelchair users.

I would not stay here again but I would recommend this property if you can cope with cold weather and have no access requirements.

Hi Sandra, thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Orchards Apartment. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Eskdale, it's such a lovely area. Even though it was not possible for you to alter the heating yourself, the owner was more than happy to adjust it for you. Also, they understood that, due to the upheaval that fixing the leak would cause you, you were happy for this to be addressed after your stay. We do not list The Orchards Apartment as being suitable for the less able visitor on our website, and would have been more than happy to advise you on cottages that would fulfil your needs. If you would like us to assist in choosing a cottage for your next stay in the Lakes just let us know.
