  • "Wonderful holiday staying at longcliffe, thoroughly recommend it."

    Would love to visit again.

  • "Everything was absolutely fantastic."

    Loads of Christmas decorations, movies, CD player with TV, clean kitchen, rooms and everything you can think of was available. The location is amazing. Greenery everywhere. I would suggest to have Netflix in TV, new carpet, better vacuum cleaner, the radiator upstairs doesn’t get hot easily compared to the ones downstairs. Just few suggestions. Nothing major. I would definitely book again.

  • "A first class cottage in beautiful grounds and that has been thoughtfully adapted to suit all ages and abilities."

    Everything you could possible need to make your stay comfortable was provided and the welcome pack was greatly appreciated too, especially after a very long journey. The cottage is set in a perfect location minutes from lovely beaches and numerous places to visit within 30/40 minutes drive. We were spoilt for choice and a week not long enough.

  • "Great accommodation situated in an area close to the Western Lake District."

    Quiet cul-de-sac with parking for two vehicles, good sized garden. The owners provided complementary items and a welcome pack including tea, coffee and milk - very useful after a long journey. I would highly recommend this cottage.

  • "This property is perfectly placed, on the edge of a quiet village, for enjoying the delights of the western Lake District and West Cumbria."

    The house itself is surprisingly spacious, super clean and tidy, and has all the facilities you'd expect, plus the owner provided a wide range of complementary household items which was very welcome.

  • "Well equipped homely cottage in a very quiet location."

    Plenty of room for 6 adults, a child and 3 dogs. Downstairs bedroom is great for disabled and elderly. Garden is well secured for dogs and a lovely view out over fields with livestock grazing. Owner was extremely helpful but not intrusive. Provisions on arrival were most welcome - milk, fresh eggs and wonderful cakes. A lot of thought had been given to ensure essentials you need when away from home were provided. None of us wanted to leave and we'll be back. A big thankyou to the owners.

  • "The accommodation was fantastic."

    More than well equipped for 6 people. It has been done up since the pictures. Plenty of everything left for us, a home from home almost. Kitchen is stunning. Couldn’t fault this property at all. Plenty of games for the children. Lovely safe garden for children and dog. Stunning views. Nice neighbour. 10minutes drive to beach. All the surroundings are also stunning. We done loads on our visit. I would return to this property in the future without a doubt.

  • "The property was delightful and the location was perfect."

    The owners were very thoughtful in preparing the house for our arrival. The only issue we had was the oven. Being a gas oven, food took much longer to cook. We later learnt to allocate more time when preparing food using the oven. Overall a wonderful experience for the kids and the family.

  • "After initially booking a regular place in the Lakes which was pulled by the owner we booked Longcliffe."

    The house is tucked in a quiet cul-de-sac close to both St Bees and Wasdale. It was equipped with everything you could think of including dog bowls and towels. We didn't need to change anything that we'd do normally as the kitchen also had everything in, which you don't normally find in holiday homes. Welcome pack including tea, coffee, sugar, wine (yes wine), biscuits, milk and squash was greatly received. Having a washing machine and tumble dryer was a godsend as with kids and dogs and rain there was bound to be a few days of soaking wet clothes!! WiFi was strong given the area and the kids were happy they could video call their friends. Two bathrooms was also great, we just gave the upstairs of the house to the kids and took the downstairs bedroom. Garden is lovely and very safe, we have a puppy and if he couldnt find his way to the sheep there wasn't a way!! Owners were lovely, popped round one evening to check the boiler was working - most appreciated by us!! Overall we had a great week, I would highly recommend Longcliffe.

  • "We had a lovely if somewhat eventful week at Beckermet."

    While the location and the house is lovely, quiet with beautiful views, a few things happened that need mentioning. First off, this isn't a criticism as such. The owner Corinne was lovely and helpful on the phone, but... When we phoned up for the key collection, we were told that they'd had a leak in the roof, but as far as they were concerned it was fixed. There was a bucket under the leak in one of the upstairs bedrooms just to be on the safe side. Okay then, we didn't think too much off it, and all was ok when we got there, until we had our first rain. Well, let's just say the leak wasn't fixed. While we joked among ourselves that we had an indoor water feature it was a little bit disconcerting to say the least. The owner assured us that they were due to have the roof fixed at the end of the month. Fair enough, and these things happen, I guess, but not really what you'd expect to find in your holiday accommodation. I noticed in previous reviews that the house needs updating and I would certainly agree with that. The door mechanism to the second upstairs bedroom failed on the first day we were there, and out ten year old son remained trapped in that bedroom for a good forty-five minutes, until we managed to shimmy the door open using the old credit card trick. We did tell the owner, but she didn't get back to us until the crisis was averted. We put a door stop under the door and kept it open to avoid the mechanism going again. The doors to both bathrooms also stuck, though, thankfully never failed. Like I said an update is definitely in order. There was also the rather intriguing matter of the missing can opener, which caused a bit of grief for one of our daughters at dinner time. The nearest bigger shop is a good 15 minutes drive away, and besides, I wasn't going to buy one, lol. The owner assured us there were two of them previously in the drawer, and I certainly believe her, as the house was very well stocked in other regards. Any gadgets imaginable was in the place otherwise. I have to state here that I was impressed with the cleanliness and the items provided. It really was a home from home, right down to toiletries in the bathroom. Clear instructions to everything were in the folders, which also very helpful. So all in all, it was an enjoyable stay and yes, I would recommend Longcliffe, providing those updates are done, of course.
