    “We liked it but could do better!”

    We came hear for a week in the middle of the heat wave in July 2018. One great advantage of Maple cottage in a heat wave is that it gets little direct sunlight and so it was a delightful cool haven. We slept in the rear bedroom which is also nice and cool. The single beds were very comfortable and I had the best nights sleep for many years! This was despite the fact that even with the curtains drawn it was very light at sunrise. The ensuite shower is very good and powerful. The only problem ...

    We came hear for a week in the middle of the heat wave in July 2018. One great advantage of Maple cottage in a heat wave is that it gets little direct sunlight and so it was a delightful cool haven. We slept in the rear bedroom which is also nice and cool. The single beds were very comfortable and I had the best nights sleep for many years! This was despite the fact that even with the curtains drawn it was very light at sunrise. The ensuite shower is very good and powerful. The only problem being it does not drain quickly enough when on full power. There is a second bedroom with a double bed, this is a little small and as there were no suitcase stands we used this for our suitcases. There is a large kitchen-dining-living room and I loved the two 2-seater settees which incorporated electrically operated recliners. I also liked the fact that the standard lamp could be switched on/off using a foot operated switch on the floor. The kitchen included a large fridge freezer and washing machine, dish washer and it was very well equipped with everything( pots, pans, plates, cutlery etc) in very good condition. However, there were no welcoming cakes, milk etc on arrival. We found a two page instruction sheet under the TV giving instructions on the WIFI, TV, boiler etc. WIFI was good but we are not high demand users. ITV player was not registered and so was not available to non-uk residents. I found the TV very fiddly to use. There was plenty of hot water on demand. The flat is reasonably quiet and only the most heavy footed people upstairs were just heard. Maple cottage has 2 parking places about 30 yards from the front door. To unload you can bring the car to the front door but you still have to lug you cases another ~20 yards to the cottage which inside a central courtyard. The windows face onto a maple tree in the courtyard. However a short walk to the outside of the house gives great views of the mountains and the grounds contain lots of rabbits as well as bats later in the evening. The walk into Keswick via the old railway track took us about half an hour while it was only a five minute drive by car. The first part of the drive to the apartments is a rough track which might be a problem for some sports cars but was no problem for our 4x 4 and apparently for most of the other standard cars. The most annoying flaw is the absence of any hooks to hang coats, dressing gowns etc. This is especially annoying in the bathroom and bedrooms. Likewise the absence of anywhere to put soap and shampoo in the shower was annoying. 2.5 days before we left we reported a blocked toilet. This was not fixed while we there though about 4 hours after we left we had a phone call apologising that it had not been fixed. As a couple we really enjoyed our stay at Maple cottage and will definitely consider coming again. Potentially this could be a 5 star apartment but the lack of hooks, a welcome tray and poor maintenance means I can only give it 4 star rating.
