Cute little flat with a great view. Probably wouldn’t book again because there is a few things to work on..... there was a terrible smell coming from the drain in the shower , seems like the trap needs replacing. The flat was always full of flies, I’m not sure why because it was spotless & clean. The flat is a bit dated and the glass needs replacing in the main window in lounge , it’s shame because it’s all misted up with drip marks in and it distracts from the lovely view. Also it’s not very sound proof so we were kept up at night by the noisy neighbours who's kitchen was above main bedroom which was a shame. The location was good, Sale Fell was a great local walk & nice quick drive to Keswick which was great.

Hi Beth, many thanks for taking the time to leave your comments, I appreciate it and have flagged the things you raised with the maintenance team. The views really are wonderful aren't they? I'm glad you found time to do some exploring too.

Our third stay here. 2 adults, a teenager and a boxer. The bottom line is that we think this cottage (and we've stayed at many) represents good value for money. The second bedroom is what it is - as per the description but as long as you are aware of this it doesn't impact. Its ideal for one person or 2 children at a squeeze but 2 adults would be tight. The position is at the quiet end of the lakes which we love but only 12 minutes into Keswick so everything on tap. The Sun Inn at Bassenthwaite is 7 mins drive and is a delight - both food and Ale. We had a couple of minor problems that I suspect were on the back of previous guests not informing Sally's Cottages but once they were notified their handyman came within 2 hours and sorted the issues so hats off to him/them. Recommended as good value for money.

Hi Matin, welcome back! It's great to find a home from home, isn't it? And delighted that we could help sort out a couple of tiny niggles. As you say, it's an ideal location. Here's to more fabulous family getaways!

Nice cottage, good value for money in an excellent location. The cottage facilities were good however the hot water is on a timer and is limited to early morning, switching off at 8:30 which is not good when you want a lie in on holiday and want a shower. I think this needs addressing apart from that would recommend and we managed around it but not ideal especially with a 1 year old.

Hello Peter, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It's a lovely cosy cottage, isn't it? The location is hard to beat! Thank you also for your feedback regarding the hot water, I will look into this further. I hope you had a great stay and will plan a return visit to the beautiful Lakes very soon.
