  • "The resort that the cottage was on was brilliant."

    We had a few niggles in the cottage which they sorted out quickly. I would have rated the comfort and overall higher but the beds were so uncomfortable and the mattresses need replacing in all the beds. Other than this the cottage was nice.

  • "The cottage was as described and had everything we needed."

    Well presented, clean cottage. Would have been nice to have a washing machine. We have stayed at the hotel on whitbarrow before so knew what facilities were available on site. However due to Covid 19 the swimming pool and Gym were only available once per stay, which was disappointing as the facilities were also a reason for us booking our stay at whitbarrow.

  • "The holiday, site etc were excellent."

    However, we were slightly disappointed having requested at time of booking online a high chair and travel cot for our 12month grandson to be told that the cottage we had booked could not offer this facility. Four adults and baby in car with luggage for week plus travel cot came from Dundee. (We had planned to ask if we could hire a high chair on arrival, as we had no room to take this too) It was a long and not the most comfortable of journeys there and back. However on arrival, when I asked to hire a high chair at reception. I was informed that the cottage had both a travel cot and high chair in situ. This was slightly infuriating o say the least and to be honest given the specification of Whitbarrow, I would have expected this accommodation at the outset and not to be told it wasn't available.

    Thank you for our recent feedback regards your stay; there is a highchair and a travel cot located in the hall cupboard of the property. If you would have called your booking agent, they would have been able to locate these for you. We hope you enjoyed your stay in the Lake District and would love to welcome you again. Property Owner
