  • "Excellent location for exploring the area."

    15 minutes walk to Cartmel Races which was the purpose of our visit. The Aga in the kitchen did make the house very hot tho given the heat outside but this was a minor thing.

  • "The house was very comfortable and spotlessly clean."

    The beds and bedding were excellent so much so that we all slept in every morning.The kitchen was very well equipped with a diswasher.oven and Aga.The area was quiet and Cartmel was only a 25 min walk away.The only significant problem was that the curtain in the third bedroom was a waste of time and blackout blinds need to be fitted.We had great weather and every morning the sun blazed through the window at 5am making sleep impossible.Consequenlly my daughter had go in the second bedroom with her brothers which she was not happy about.Having three bedrooms was the main reason we booked the property!! Everything else was great though.

  • "We did have a lovely stay, the property is nicer then in the listing , thank you , Very nice that they left us some kendel cake and a bottle of wine - which I’m not sure was entirely drinkable."

    Though perhaps a few tea bags and a small starter milk and a bit of sugar would have been more useful like they do in some places . It was good of you to sort out the bath that wasn’t draining . Very sweet property but a few inexpensive extras to start off would have been good like washing tablets in the laundry room fairly liquid and a note telling us where the laundry room is. . Loved the aga and the cosiness of the cottage and it was very clean.

  • "Loved our stay at Low Sea View - cottage had everything we needed for our stay and even some additional things which we weren’t expecting that kept our 3 year old entertained."

    Great location for accessing the lakes and would definitely recommend!

  • "In general fairly faultless and really enjoyed the cottage."

    Minor criticism would suggest more crockery otherwise the dishwasher isn't being used efficiently. The lounge area sofa's not best placed for Watching TV although there is a nice dresser it doesn't work for the benefit of a holiday let (very minor issue I might add).

  • "We’ve had a wonderful break in this beautiful cottage full of character."

    I could quite happily move in! Beautifully decorated with lots of quirky features. Plenty of books for grown-ups and children to read. The kitchen is so cosy, love the Aga…we also have one at home so felt very comfortable with it and would definitely recommend everyone to use that (rather than the electric oven which is also provided). Plenty of beautiful villages to visit nearby and play park just up the road for the children. Can’t wait to come and stay again!

  • "We had a lovely stay at the cottage with our two boys aged 2&5."

    It's a really lovely property, well equipped and just like it seems from the listing. The Aga is a real treat, and we enjoyed using the woodburning stove. I've only marked it down one because when one of our kids was ill we had to be at home all day and you can't override the heating to come on so it cost us a lot in firewood to stay warm (it was a chilly February!). I would highly recommend the cottage.

    Lovely comfy bed. Spacious kitchen. The Aga kept us so warm. Great walks from the property and only a mile’s walk to the station. Ideal for exploring the Lake District.

  • "The cottage was very damp in the bedrooms paper was peeling off the walls."

    Down stairs toilet was in a very poor condition and in need of urgent improvement.

    We are very sorry to hear about your experience at Low Sea View, as we pride ourselves on the excellent quality and upkeep of our property. If you had been forthcoming with your concerns during your stay, we would have been more than happy to look into them for you, we have since checked the property and there is no evidence of damp.

  • "Lovely warm and homely property in a great location."

    Great base as we explored all over the Lakes. Overall we really enjoyed our stay, kids loved the books, toys and nearby playpark. Loved the AGA for warmth and cooking. Off street parking was a bonus given narrow streets. Our only negatives were that electric oven was overdue a deep clean and we didn't find the mattress in the main bedroom to be very comfortable.

  • "What a lovely home."

    The owner has made the cottage feel so lovely and homely with how they have decorated the house. Little touches like the dog shaped door mat and one of the signs saying about dog kisses made me feel really comfortable having our dog stay with us too. The kitchen and bathroom are recently done and to a good standard. Everything we needed was there and more. Just a brilliant house to stay in.
