The Whent Cottage provided a comfortable accommodation for us three and we are happy to recommend this to a couple/small family. We would have liked it if they provided few more basic things as in more plates, oven gloves and bin liners. The plates and bowls were generally too big to be stored in smallish cupboards, and when we got there we found the main kitchen bin wasn't emptied and there was no bin liner provided. Also this bin is one of those heavy duty (tall with a heavy metal frying pan shaped lid with a foot pedal) that unfortunately didn't operate properly and it was very dirty and smelly. However, the house is within an hour of travelling anywhere in the west side of the Lake District. We managed to stretch to Buttermere, Ennerdale and to Wastwater as well as enjoying the local scenery.

Hi Yuko, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it? It sounds like you manged to fit a lot in and visited some beautiful parts of the Lake District while you were here.
I really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for improvement, thank you. I apologise that the bin had not been emptied before your arrival, I'll make sure that is addressed with the cleaners.
I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

Great location, ravenglass in a tiny village. Basically one street so there wasn't a supermarket. Two great pubs and the local steam ratty train was amazing. The lounge in the cottage could do with a refurb but everything else was great. Shower in the double was a bit weird but I can appreciate why it's in there if there was a family of 4 using the bathroom. Definitely would stay again.

Hi Lucy, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your break, it's a lovely place to relax and recharge the batteries isn't it? A ride on the La'al Ratty is always good fun!
Come back any time, you can be sure of a warm welcome.

We enjoyed our stay at Whent very much and the weather was glorious. The kitchen was well kitted out and the bedrooms comfy. The extra shower in the bedroom and towel rails and the dishwasher were much appreciated.! There is a the Ratty pub in the village, a homemade icecream shop and post office. If you have a car there is a Spar in Holmsrook or you can get a Tesco delivery to the cottage. You can walk from the house or an hours drive away to other fells. Wast water is spectacular. We also walked up Helvellyn! Stunning. The local main train line is excellent value and you can get up and down the coast very easily. Also the Eskdale/Ravenglass steam railway was brilliant including the walk up Stanley Ghyll falls.
The only let down was the cottage could of been a bit cleaner, nothing serious though.
We have found Sallys Cottages really helpful and friendly. Would love to come again!
