The cottage was immaculately clean, nicely presented and very well equipped (although no washing machine). The location is beautiful and we loved the area. Amazing walks from the door. However a few negatives that would stop me recommending. The house has a ventilation system that makes a whining noise audible in the bedroom. We could only open one of the windows which made things a bit stuffy.. especially at night. Mattresses uncomfortable. The communal garden at the front is the access route for several homes (? 7), and so I’m not sure we’d have felt comfortable relaxing on the grass, or using it to dry wet clothing. The entrance to another house is directly behind the kitchen window, and somebody else’s terrace behind window on the stairs. I just feel that I would have liked to know about some of these things when deciding where to stay.

Hi Lindsay, 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? And the lovely weather was the icing on the cake.
I'm sorry to hear there was a couple of issues during your stay, I really appreciate you bringing them to my attention and will make sure they're looked into, thank you.
The Cottage Info on our website does state that the communal area to the front of the cottage is mainly for access to the other properties at Greendale, I hope this didn't cause too much convenience.
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

A fantastically out of the way location. All the comforts you need (single bed mattresses not very comfy apparently). We had a wonderful time and didn’t want to leave.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider returning for the brilliant access the cottage gives to the surrounding hills. However, we were surprised it was part of such a complex of cottages - not clear from the website. We were woken each morning by someone from one of the other properties opening and closing the gate when he took his dogs for a walk. Maybe lose the gate or oil it so it is not so noisy?! The cottage would definitely benefit from a washing machine - I would prefer this to a dishwasher. The parking over the road is extremely helpful. Many more positives than negatives - so please don’t be put off by my comments if you are considering booking!
