The house itself is fabulous. It’s was our second visit. However, too many issues that have been highlighted have gone unrepaired. The ovens are of poor quality and the kitchen not equipped to service the 8 residents.

Hi Lisa, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your second stay. It's a lovely property isn't it? And the location is perfect for heading out exploring.
I really appreciate your feedback and will make sure that everything is addressed, thank you for bringing it to my attention.
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

A lovely cottage in a great position for the fells with easy access to Keswick. While the seating was comfortable and plentiful, all 5 adults in our party had sore backs from the mattresses which we felt needed renewing. The kitchen was generally well stocked although additional glasses would certainly be needed for a party of 8 adults - only two champagne glasses to celebrate our Lakesman Triathlon success!! The two 'garden seats' have moss growing on them keeping them damp; a good scraping and re-varnish would make all the difference. Superficially the cottage was clean and tidy on arrival but when we had to retrieve our grand-children's toys from behind the sofas in the kitchen, the amount of accumulated dust etc suggested that a more in-depth clean is required. It is perhaps easy to be over critical, but we all felt that these easy to fix suggestions would make all the difference. We have booked for next year's 'Lakesman' at your Woodside cottage closer to Keswick and are looking forward to another week with Sally's Cottages in 2020.

Hi Dave, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your break.The location is ideal for getting out exploring isn't it? Well done on taking part in the Lakesman Triathlon, that is a challenge and a half!
I'm sorry to hear that some of the cleanliness wasn't up to scratch when you arrived. Thank you for bringing it to my attention, I'll make sure I address it with the cleaner. I really appreciate your other feedback and suggestions for improvement too and will make sure everything is looked into.
I'm glad you've got another trip to look forward to next year, good luck with the training!

A beautiful property with a truly stunning interior. Extremely spacious both inside and outside. The perfect hideaway, but an easy drive to all the Lake District has to offer.
