Cambridge GB Couple
The beds are really poor here, very thin mattresses across all beds (2 x double 2 x twin). The place is tired, most things hanging on by a thread or poorly stuck together. The water isnt hot from either shower and not enough for a bath, but you will scold yourself on the tap water. I did contact the owner and it seemed a little warmer the next day but not enough to enjoy a hot shower after a walk.
Various bulbs were not available and this was reported but not sorted in our time. The place is cheap.

It is not ideal for dogs, right on the main road - just to be aware if you are taking dogs with you they need to be on lead at all times out of the house.

Plenty of warmth from the heating though and the pub across the way offers good standard pub grub. Ideal for doing blencathra.

Hi Becki, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm sorry to hear that the cottage didn't live up to your expectations and there were a few issues during your stay. I really appreciate your feedback and will make sure everything you have mentioned is addressed, thank you.
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

The property is well located and has great views from the lounge. The furnishings are tired with many cupboard and draw doors falling off. Only 50% of the light bulbs work, but for the price was great for a week away. Some instruction on bins and recycling boxes would have been appreciated.

Hello Julie, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. You really can't beat getting away from it all, can you? I really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for improvement which I will pass on to the owner. I would love to welcome you back again in the future.

Birmingham GB Solo
Very comfortable place to stay, surprisingly big and warm. Not sure what the previous reviewers were experiencing but no issues at all. Beds were very comfy. Hot water was a little temperamental (turn the heat up a little on the boiler) and some furnishings a bit weathered but still very comfy. For the price no complaints at all, was much better than I expected and had a cracking stay.
