- Loved our stay overall. Second time we have stayed at Tanyard Cottage over the past two years.
A few little grievances I had were just to do with cleanliness:
There was thick mould all over the shower head holes and along the shower hose, so had to wipe thos off before using. I think the cleaner needs to pay closer attention to getting in the grooves of the shower areas.
The toaster had not been wiped over or emptied since the previous people had been in as crude.bs all over the top of it and grubby on the outside of it. The kettle was also grubby on the outside surfaces too, with COVID rules being the reason we had to check out early, I was miffed that the cleaning wasnt up to scratch, particularly as it is meant to be more thorough at the moment. There was also no grill wire to the grill pan?
There was also blood in our sheets which had gone through to the mattress protector from somebody else, which was a bit gross that it hadn't been picked up on.
Other than those bits, the stay was great. The addition of Wifi made the stay better as could get some kind of signal to look up walks and areas. I noticed the guest book had been removed which is a shame, but probably due to COVID rules.

Hi Lucy, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your second stay, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it? The owners were really pleased that you decided to return, but are saddened to hear that you encountered some cleanliness concerns. They are a bit puzzled how that has come up, especially as the cottage had been empty prior to your arrival due to the November lockdown. They would have been happy to address any concerns you had at the time, so please do always feel free to contact them or ourselves if you come to stay again. The owners have now replaced the shower head, so thank you for the feedback. I hope you are able to return to Tanyard and the Lakes once it is safe again.
