    Owner was very friendly & obliging when we contacted him . Beautiful view from the back windows lovely to sit at the kitchen table & have breakfast overlooking the stream Well appointed & the family liked the two sitting rooms & settees etc were comfortable The utility room & flooring throughout the ground floor was great for the dogs Village was pretty ,nice pub 2 minutes walk & handy mini market ..great walks to the shore & cartmel & near to the south lakes Only gave 4 *as the double bed & bedding were not comfortable & the en-suite was tiny but otherwise the family (& dogs!)had a great stay

  • "We had a lovely stay at Riverside View for our first visit to the Lake District."

    The cottage is lovely and a lot bigger than what it looks on the photographs with a lovely river to the back of the property with ducks which the kids enjoyed feeding in the morning. The property was very clean throughout and has laminate flooring which was ideal for our two small dogs who came with us. Would highly recommend.

  • "Lovely large house in a fantastic location."

    We were able to park the cars down the station approach (unclear where the allocated parking spot was). Short walk to the shop, the two pubs & the train station. The house has everything you need for a great holiday - comfy beds & settees, well equipped kitchen with a coffee maker, DVDs etc A lovely ‘starter pack’ of milk, biscuits, tea & coffee. Fantastic countryside views from the house. Just be aware that the only outside area attached to the property is an enclosed yard to the front of the house, but as you’re in The Lakes, plenty of lovely green open places to explore. We would not hesitate to rebook.

    Christmas tree and decorations were up and a welcome surprise of wine, cakes and mince pies. The cottage was lovely and clean. Only slight issue was again the lack of a bathroom blind as there was little privacy especially when dark.

    In very good condition and well cleaned for our arrival. Cark is a great location for exploring - it's a lovely walk into Cartmel (although got taxi back after dark!) and perfect location for train station - we used the train for visits to Arndale & Grange over Sands, all very easy. All in all a lovely stay, we had a great week in this cottage & would recommend.

    Plenty of room for 5 adults and a dog. The views were gorgeous but it would’ve been nice to have been able to access the river from the house, not just look out of the windows at it. This though is not a complaint, just a personal preference. Overall we had a very enjoyable holiday at Riverside View, highly recommended

    Comfortable lounge and well set up for dogs with hard floors through most of property. Excellent shower. Well appointed kitchen. One bedroom has a tiny en-suit which saved fighting for the bathroom. Good utility room for drying and feeding dogs. Small fully enclosed yard but no greenery except for small front garden. No off street parking, but plenty of parking nearby as road is busy. Close to pub and Fat Flower bakery in Flookburgh.

    The house was huge and with having two reception rooms we could do our own thing and not be tied to one room. With having an en suite bathroom in one of the bedrooms also gave us the opportunity to be together but not tied to one room. The facilities are fantastic, tv’s in each room, well equipped kitchen and utility room and a lovely view of the river to watch the ducks and ducklings swim by. Not many places give the chance of taking two dogs, so it was perfect for us. Highly recommended.

    The lack of parking within the site,with 2 cars and no downstairs loo ,and a semi hip bath in the bathroom were the downsides.The property was clean,good kitchen/bedrooms and 2 sitting rooms. The area allows you to include the lakes and the coastal areas to the south and west.

    .. I would not say it had an enclosed garden. It had a yard and a narrow walled area in front of the property with no grass. Also think it could be made even more family friendly with a baby gate option and plastic crockery for young children. Now for the good stuff... clean, comfortable beautifil views, lots of helpful local info in the property too and a great base for adventuring the lakes. Also well situated - 2 local parks, pub, a bakery and shop. We had a great time. Thank you. X
