    May need to be clearer about location as it is up a very very steep hill which was impossible for my husband to climb. Tv signal not great either however did sort after a lot of hard work. Overall great stay though the house is beautiful typical Lake District garden is lovely.

  • "Our family of 8 enjoyed this property, it suited our needs, and appreciated the time spent to create the lovely gardens."

    We would recommend staying here. We utilised the washing machine and powder that was left at the property. Only negatives were, we were only supplied 6 towels when we booked for 8, our other guests had to use the smaller hand towels provided, and the freezer was unusable, as it was frozen closed. It’s a steep walk up the hill from town.

    Thank you for your feedback, it is nice to hear that you enjoyed your time and the gardens. We take your comments on board regarding the towels, and the freezer. We hope to welcome you back. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely spacious house."

    We were five adults and we never felt on top of each other. The garden was very pretty with lots of chairs to sit out. It is a wonderful location a short walk into Bowness. I would stress it was a VERY steep hill up from the village that might not be suitable for all to walk. The only problem we encountered was getting hold of the agents to report a problem. I rang the number given and was holding for over 30 minutes and gave up. I then emailed but it took the best part of the day to get back to me and was too late to rectify the issue until the next day. It was however then dealt with very efficiently. Overall a very good place to stay

    Thank you for your kind comments. We are glad that you had an enjoyable holiday. We apologise for the issue that you encountered in trying to report an issue, we are glad that we are able to resolve this for you. Thank you. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

    The house itself was perfect for our needs, the add on laundry room was such a good feature, ideal for wet coats, dirty shoes etc so they don't need to come into the house. Overall a fantastic property in an excellent location

    The cottage is spacious and comfortable and represents excellent value for money. Comfy beds, lovely hot shower, cosy real fire, well equipped large kitchen and utility room. We've stayed in more luxurious cottages, but we really cannot fault this place for the price we paid. Thank you.

    Thanks so much for the positive feedback. We are delighted you had a great stay, that means a lot. Property Owner

    Thanks for giving us your feedback. We are very sorry that things were not right for you this time. We will try to correct everything when we visit the house at the end of the season, and we will talk to Lakelovers about the cleanliness issues you've raised. We hope you will visit us again in future. Please let us know what more we can do to make sure your next stay a great one. Property Owner

  • "Booked last min for couples, for a 50th birthday celebration."

    A few days before we were due to arrive I reviewed our booking to ask some questions on what equipment was in the kitchen and it was the first time I saw some negative reviews - which did concern me. However, we found no issues with the property and it was perfect for this occasion. Its a bit dated but that just added to the charm of the house. Great location, even if its up hill on the way home. All the rooms were big and there was enough utensils in the kitchen. The fridge is only a standard size, so people need to be aware if they are a large group and going for more than a couple of days. We bought an electric cool box with us which helped with 7 adults (kept the fizz cold). The showers were lovely and powerful as well. Would suggest using the boot room to come and go as the front door was hard to open. The only complaints would be that the twin room that can be converted to a king was not make up in advance, even though we had requested this and it was also noted on our booking, but someone did come the following morning to do this, so it was no big deal. Bring toilet roll as there was only 1 roll in each toilet so we did have to buy a pack which we did not expect to do - but that was it - all in all it was a great house and we would come again (just wish we could bring the dog - but its no pets).

    Many thanks for your positive comments and suggestions. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Since your comments, we have added a second fridge and topped up the kitchen utensils. Regarding storing boots/waterproofs, there are 2 options - the entrance lobby has space and coat hooks, while there is also lots of space in the utility room. Sorry the king-size/twin link bed wasnt made right for your arrival. Thanks again! Property Owner

  • "Extremely disappointed in the cleanliness of the property."

    It is supposed to be thoroughly cleaned in line with COVID but it was definitely not. My daughter and I had to clean the kitchen for us to use it - definitely not the standard I would expect. The house sleeps 8 people and we brought quite a lot of food with is - the fridge was nowhere near suitable, far too small. The microwave hadn’t been cleaned either with food residue stuck to the roof! There were only 7 dessert/cereal dishes too! The drawers in the bedrooms haven’t seen a duster for months! The bannister rail was filthy. We had two 80+ year olds in the party and nowhere in the property description does it state it is a steep hill of approximately 500 meters up to the property from Bowness. The description doesn’t mention the ‘access only’ driveway and the awkwardness of parking 2 big cars. There is only 1 standard outdoor bin for all rubbish which again isn’t really enough. The plumbing is noisy and requires attention it reverberates through the house and we are still trying to find the Jack and Jill bathroom!!! We go on a self catering family holiday every year and the only time we have had issues with the property is on the 2 holidays booked through yourselves in the Lake District - makes it hard for us to recommend to others. On the plus side the location for those who are able and fit and love the outdoors is fantastic. All in all the property just needs a good clean, a bit more attention to detail and some TLC and it would be fantastic.

    So sorry there were niggly problems; thanks for feedback. We have asked Lakelovers to comment on cleaning/bin emptying, but we believe these issues are now resolved. Deep clean carried out. Parking, yes, 2 places available on the drive/by the garage. Also fine to park on the road, adjacent to the house. The walk on the road up from Bowness is steep in places, hopefully the views and garden make it worth it Lakelovers Response: Sorry to hear there were issues with the cleanliness. We clean this property on behalf of the owner and had we been made aware that there were certain aspects of the cleanliness you were not happy with, we would have immediately reattended to rectify these issues.

  • "We have visited this property on numerous occasions due to its size and location which meets our needs but we are disappointed with the general upkeep and repair of the property."

    The home continues to be damp in places on the bedroom walls. There seems to be an airlock in the water system so each time the toilet is flushed there is a horrible noise throughout the house, so using the toilet in the night was difficult as it wakes up the household. The property was advertised with a dryer but this was not working and appeared to have not been working for some time. We have a child with disabilities in our party and he needs frequent changes of clothes so not having a dryer (as advertised) was very problematic. The bathroom door still remains very stiff and it needs to be lifted slightly when closing so the lock works. Not all our party were able to do this so it caused privacy difficulties. There was a leak to one of the radiators so we reported this and it was fixed promptly.

    Thank you for your feedback. It helps us make improvements, so you and your family can enjoy your visits more. The damp was linked to a problem with one of the chimneys, that has been addressed now. The noisy plumbing pipe vibration has been fixed too. There is a new tumble dryer installed in the utility room. The lock on the family bathroom has also been upgraded. Property Owner

  • "The Bin (outside) was full when we arrived and the next collection was the following Thursday."

    This was insufficient for the rubbish generated by 8 in a week if it has been empty. Otherwise the property was great.

    So glad the house and gardens met your needs. Thanks for the feedback on the bins. We have raised this with Lakelovers and believe we have solution now. Hope that you want to visit Lakeland again soon. Property Owner

  • "The dryer didn't work."

    Some of the bedroom drawers had hairs in them. The bath wasn't very clean. Some of the kitchen cupboards were quite dirty. There were insufficient tumbler-style glasses. But it's a good size house, a beautiful garden in a good location.

    So sorry to be slow in responding to your feedback and thanks for your comments. New dryer and extra kitchen crockery/cutlery etc added. Other guests kindly commented on a couple of plumbing problems, which have all now been addressed too. So glad you enjoyed the big rooms/house size/the gardens. Lots of guests love the location, 400 m into town, yet very quiet, lovely woodland and walks on the doorsetp. Property Owner
