  • "Great family kitchen, diner, and seating area that leads out to patio and hot tub, brilliant for families, as is the gated garden and driveway."

    . Utility room well equipped, the water was always hot, showers good, nicely carpeted comfortable sofas. The beds look good in photos, but the properties Achilles heel is the mattresses are well past their best, and need replacing. Otherwise defo one nicer holiday homes.

  • "This is a fantastic property with everything you need provided."

    It has a sky package as well as a hot tub so in relation to other properties the same, it is great value. The location is good, we park 2 large cars easily. We have stayed here 3 times now and rate it our no 1 choice out of many holiday let’s and hope to keep on returning. There are TV’s in every bedroom invaluable with children as is the small snug room . The property is alway immaculately cleaned on arrival and is a total credit to the owners.

  • "This holiday let is amazing, location is perfect, a very clean house, all on one level, hot tub a lovely added luxury."

    Everything has been thought of. I’m pleased I read previous reviews and knew to take something for when we’d been in the hot tub, we took beach towels for each of us to use, spare towels or robes would be useful, or to state they are definitely not included. The only negative we’d say, is the house is a bit on the cold side, the bathrooms in particular, and although our stay was over Easter it was really difficult to get the bathrooms to dry out, we were using the bath towels to try and dry them but then after going out all day and returning, the walls were still running with water and the floor was very cold. We did turn the heating up a bit, but the bathroom radiators didn’t dry them out. We ate every night in the property, instructions for everything were very clear, every utensil, pot or pan we needed were there! We discovered the Lake District and an added bonus didn’t use the car for a few days! Thank you for a lovely stay

    Thank you for your kind comments, we are delighted to read that you enjoyed your visit. We take all comments on board. We hope to welcome you back. Property Owner

    Really well equipped and comfortable accommodation. Would thoroughly recommend and we'll definitely book again.

  • "Great location within walking distance of all amenities in Bowness."

    The cottage has been renovated to a lovely standard but a few things let it down; There are no pool/hot tub towels provided so we had to use the bath towels. Not great when you then needed a shower later. Also the outside area had not been cleaned, the table needed a good wipe over and there was dog poo in the garden. Fortunately we have dogs so had our own poo bags but if you are not dog lovers it would have been very unpleasant. Although the main bedroom now has a mirror on the drawers is was useless as its too low and not near a plug for the hairdryer! Lastly, I have never stayed in a property of this standard/cost before where there is no welcome pack (milk, a bottle of wine, local produce etc) provided. Not only that, the tea/coffee/sugar caddies had also been emptied and anything else other guests may have left. The agents, however had left us their own welcome gift pack - a pan scrubber, dishcloth, 2 bin bags, 3 dishwasher tablets (not enough when you are there for a week) and 20ml washing up liquid. How insulting!

  • "Lovely bungalow, great location, this is our second visit to Glebe Holme."

    There is everything you could need provided and the addition of sky on 2 TV’s when travelling with small children was a godsend for evenings. The property is comfortable and spotlessly clean with plenty of parking for anyone with large vehicles. This property is a credit to the owners.

  • "Super property."

    Well equipped. Excellent storage for coats and shoes. Could do with the washing line going across the grass instead of the patio area for dripping clothes after using the hot tub. Otherwise, pretty near perfect.

  • "Coffee machine had not been cleaned for some time so we had to clean out congealed milk."

    Main bathroom drain blocked inside shower resulting in floor needing mopping after every use.

  • "Side door key stuck in lock but later heard this door has ongoing problems."

    On arrival no travel cot which was requested previously and took several calls to sort out so maybe a travel cot in the property would be a good idea. Although both problems sorted I had to make several calls when all I wanted was a return communication that maintenance were on their way. The problems were minor issues as the property itself is a beautiful property and has been well thought out. The sky tv was a bonus with 2 small children and location is second to none. The kitchen is well stocked and the ice dispensing fridge was a godsend in hot weather. We have already booked Glebe Holme for 2022 so need I say more.
