We had a fabulous time, the cottage was very clean very spacious and very comfortable. The house was a bit cold as the temperature outside dropped but one call to sally's cottages and the landlord sorted it out. The kitchen had lots and lots of flies which got on our nerves something that has to be done about it. The extra mid stay linen change and freshen up service was really appreciated maybe consider providing towels. Definitely recommend the cottage.

Arrived on a Friday evening after a horrible journey in the pouring rain on the M6. The house was freezing, there was a welcome packet of shortcake biscuits great if you like them, we not keen on them. Tea and coffee would have been very welcoming. The internet was a problem the whole week. We had a power cut on arrival looked for a torch there wasn’t one. The inside of the house in some rooms needed a paint very big dirty marks on walls. The toaster was only a two slice way too small. The oven was not clean and it was very sticky the cleaning company need to be advised on that. Rang Sally’s on Sunday as the heating still not on and house was very cold especially with two toddlers under four plus a six month old baby. They were very quick to act. They Rang the owner and she came out to the house very quickly to sort out the heating which was then fixed. It would have been nice to have had a small pack of washing powder. On the whole the house is a great size for eight people. The house is in a great area very close to Ullswater. We had a very enjoyable week in the lakes.
