But the house needs some updates in my opinion, the carpet was threadbare at the top of the stairs and where the radiators had been removed, it looked a little scruffy. Comfy bed. Sofas comfy. Beautiful garden..there were small gaps where a small dog can get through, under the netting of the gate, we accounted for this beforehand as we understand its our responsibility. But just be aware if you have a curious dog it's possible to get out. I think the house has huge potential, and whilst there was nothing particularly wrong, it didn't set our world on fire either. Thank you for your feedback. The owner will be able to see your suggestions and can make amendments as required. We are glad that you had a lovely holiday.

Next time we will remember to order better weather!!! Reviewed by Anne5.0★Sep 2023 "We had a wonderful time, this is our dream home, the views are spectacular, gardens are beautiful and the location is perfect." Thank you for letting us stay we are 100% coming back next year. Reviewed by Daniel5.0★Aug 2023 "A fantastic property." The best we have had in all our visits to the lakes. Having the Lounge on the upper floor meant we were treated to the most magnificent sunsets, We normally bring items that we have found lacking in some accommodation but we didn't need to use any of our own items. Having the lounge upstairs could have been an issue if we had brought our elderly Labrador as he wouldn't have coped with the stairs. The lane to the property is not for the faint hearted though. Luckily we only met 2 vehicles during our whole week. Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed everything the property and area have to offer.

It was well located so touring around the lakes was ideal. It was peaceful for the best relaxing holiday we’ve had. Highly recommend people staying here. The one downside was coming home. Thank you for your comments. We are so glad that you enjoyed every aspect of the property and all that the area can provide. Lakelovers Owner Relations Expert Property Owner Reviewed by Lynn5.0★Jun 2023 "We have been to March House 10 times now and it feels like a 'home from home'." The owners have improved the beds and living room settees in the last few years to ensure that the standards remain high. We love the place and look to return as often as we can. Thank you for your kind comments, we are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you back for an 11th stay! Property Owner Reviewed by Keith5.0★Apr 2023 "This was our second visit to Match House, house was well presented and lovely and clean on arrival." The new settees and bed were very welcome, much more comfortable. The library content is amazing couldn't want for better reading material. Garden was really lovely but couldn't really sit out because of the noise from the new house being built next door, unfortunately the noise of the staple gun, banging and loud radio which all started at 8am spoilt the outdoor experience. We will be booking again though in the hope that the house may be built when we return. Reviewed by Anne5.0★Sep 2022 "Property was perfect from the outside with a lovely garden." the inside of the property was a bit dated. The water from the upstairs bathroom sink took ages to become warm and I felt you wasted so much water as you had to run the tap for quite a while before it became tepid, apart from that the house was well equipped Reviewed by Linda4.1★Sep 2022 "Probably the best holiday cottage we've stayed in." Absolutely immaculate, tons of space, lovely layout and the best location. Probably the most well equipped kitchen we've seen in a holiday house too. Absolutely fantastic, we'd love to return. Reviewed by Dan5.0★Aug 2022 "What a perfectly situated house." Beautiful. The house is well equipped, with a lovely garden and fantastic views. Not too far from anywhere and access to Windermere can be reached via foot. We had a fantastic holiday and will be looking to book again for next year. Thank youl.

Very happy with the accommodation and cleanliness throughout. Hope to be back in 2023 Reviewed by Philippa5.0★Jun 2022 "It really was a wonderful place to stay." The only issue we had was the hot water. We didn't have any for a couple of days, someone did come out on our second be day & advised it was because we had run 2 baths simultaneously in one morning. Even putting it on boost didn't work. However, it was a minor issue as there were the showers. Still a spacious beautiful home in an ideal spot. Reviewed by Jane4.7★Mar 2022 "The property was delightful to stay in a definite for the future" Reviewed by Hilary5.0★Dec 2021 "Excellent location near great walks views and town." House quiet comfortable and warm. One en suite and one shared bathroom a little inconvenient for 6 adults. On night 4 of a week stay the water heating failed leaving us with no hot water. Fortunately two electric showers. Two plumbers cured the problem on night 6 however the water was then scalding hot. We left a warning note to that effect upon leaving. Unusually fantastic library of interesting books. Reviewed by David4.7★Nov 2021 "March House is a fabulous property with beautiful gardens we loved everything about it apart from the bed in the master bedroom for which we drew the short straw!" It was extremely firm & unforgiving & is the only reason why we couldn’t return. Maybe a memory topper? Reviewed by Maureen4.1★Oct 2021 "We had a lovely week in March House, was lovely and clean on arrival and felt very welcoming." Set in a peaceful location (although the builders next door spoilt this at times! )House is lovely to relax in which is just what we were looking for. Close to Windermere and all the facilities. Garden was great for evening drinks before dinner and reading in the afternnons. and our dog loved it. We will be back for sure. Reviewed by Anne4.7★Sep 2021 "Love March House and have booked same place again for third time!" -perfect house and perfect location Reviewed by Sophie5.0★Aug 2021 "The expectations were met to a degree." The first thing I do on arrival is take a look round and read notices. One notice said when leaving wash crockery wipe work surfaces and wipe fridge / freezer out . Well I know your cleaners don’t have much time but these things need checking. The fridge/freezer was dirty crockery in cupboards was dirty the microwave was dirty and the baths didn’t look like they’d been cleaned. When you went in the bathroom it didn’t smell clean. We decided to wash all the crockery we were going to use before we used it. March house is a lovely house, it’s just a pity thing hadn’t been checked. Mrs D Kinsella Thank you for your feedback Mrs Kinsella, it is greatly appreciated and important to us. I'm very sorry that on this occasion the cleanliness of March House fell short of your expectations. We would have been very happy to reattend to any of your concerns had you made us aware of this during your stay with us. Please do accept our apologies for this shortcoming, and we really do hope to welcome you to stay with us again in future. Kind Regards, The Owner Relations Team Property Owner Reviewed by Denise4.1★Jul 2021 "March House is a fabulous holiday home." Stunning views, spacious and ideally located for walks from the doorstep. Orrest Head is within walking distance of the house and we visited there several times. There are quite a few walks straight from the door. A great kitchen/dining area with lovely views. It would be worth mentioning for future guests that a bbq is supplied, the garden is fully enclosed for dogs and that Windermere is an easy 20 minute walk away through a pretty wood. It is the perfect country retreat being quiet and secluded yet minutes from the bustling town. We would highly recommend it.

Mrs BurmanDec 2015 "March House in an Excellent property which was very well equipped and a credit to the owners and we could not fault it in any way." The only downside was the week of wet weather, It was very useful to have a boot room that enabled me to clean and dry our dogs before entering the property. Mrs BurmanNov 2015 "Found the house well equipped with every need catered for." We particularly enjoyed sitting in the lounge with the log fire burning brightly and listening to a wide selection of music. The views towards the Langdales were wonderful!
