    “Excellent Family House”

    We stayed mid November for a week, the company have obviously taken on board reviews earlier this year as there are now clothes racks in the porch and other things sorted such as towels and cups. Though there was nothing that stopped us booking in the first place ...

    We stayed mid November for a week, the company have obviously taken on board reviews earlier this year as there are now clothes racks in the porch and other things sorted such as towels and cups. Though there was nothing that stopped us booking in the first place. The good: excellent house, better and bigger than it looks online we would say. Brilliant showers seemingly endless hot water a must for an autumn in the lakes! heating was on when we arrived and for a big house it has been toasty warm every day. Nice double shower room too. 4 shower & toilets (1 of them a double shower with bathtub and twin sinks), 1 shower seperate 1 toilet seperate. The three main bedrooms vary in mattress softness so we worked out who wanted which and it worked well. The bad: we would have loved a fire in the evening, the fireplaces all have no fire labels, though there are logs in the garden, though this is understandable I guess in an older house. Will be booking again next year!
