  • "The house was beautiful in a gorgeous setting."

    Extremely well equipped kitchen. Great open plan layout. Generally house was a bit on the cold side and heating wasn’t to be adjusted. My room especially the en-suite was very chilly. A real issue was with the kitchen smoke alarm which was extremely sensitive and right next to the aga. It was continually going off even when not cooking. It set all other smoke alarms off and was very annoying. This marred our stay somewhat. I hope it can be moved as we would book again.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay. We take all comments on board. Thank you - The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "The house and setting was perfect for large multi generational family holiday."

    Plenty of space to spread out and comfortable.. Our only negatives were the availability of serving dishes, lots of pans but only 1 small oval dish. The Aga looks great but takes some getting used to when you haven’t used one before. My mark down on cleanliness was only that there is a lot of stuff in the house and we felt there were areas that are clearly not being touched often. Also clearly a problem with wasps in the family bathroom, which is no one’s fault but the light fittings were full of dead wasps. None of this would put us off recommending or staying again.

  • "This was a fabulous cottage to stay for our family of three generations."

    Spacious and had a touch of luxury. Sitting outside with the views was great and there are walks from the cottage without needing to drive anywhere. Recommend this cottage as great location and very quiet to enjoy the surrounding scenery. We had a Tesco delivery which was very easy to book and provided all food and drink for the week.

  • "Outstanding property Beautifully decorated Every possible requirement ..."

    Outstanding property Beautifully decorated Every possible requirement provided Of course it’s expensive but it’s a lot cheaper than putting the family in a hotel of equivalent comfort

  • "The property was very well presented and provided a very quiet and relaxing base for our holiday."

    No expense has been spared on the furniture and fittings and it’s noticeable that extra effort has been made to ensure all details and requirements that guests will need have been well considered. We’ve stayed in many multi-bedroom ‘luxury’ holiday rentals over the years and this is amongst the best, assuming you’re looking for that traditional cottage theme property. The Brasserie at the local Sawrey House hotel is also highly recommended!

  • "It had a normal hob and oven instead of or in addition to the Aga and better saucepans it would have scored full marks throughout."

  • "Lovely property, nicely restored with quality fittings."

    Nice Location, outside space great, lovely big grass snake ( don’t worry about this, as you won’t see him if your not looking) living in dead tree near stream, duck with eggs n front garden. Smell in main bedroom , which is water related, either from corner of shower or water leak whilst raining which could be heard dripping, one of those things which I’m sure owner will sort, this shouldn’t detract from a super property in a super location, ver tastefully restored, well done and thank you very much

  • "Loved the house."

    Decor was beautiful and very comfortable. The house has a wonderful garden and the position is great! The house was let down by the cleanliness. There was a strong smell of damp in the master bedroom and serious dust on the wooden beams and on the walls and ceilings. I had to do a clean myself and dust. The owners have put air diffusers around to hide smell of damp. The house also has a terrible moth issue. Huge moths all over the place in each room.

  • "The very few improvements that could be made: 1."

    Cooking is dependent on the AGA. We succeeded in finding a detailed instruction book which allowed us to to use it well - this could be made more prominent, or mentioned in the folder 2. Out initial order of a travel cot and a high chair was not fulfilled, but were provided quickly when asked for. We loved the garden, access to the lake and the very peaceful location.

  • "This a very well furnished holiday cottage in a wonderful peaceful and beautiful situation."

    Niggles: while we should have spotted it from the pictures there are a number of low beams and two of us who are 67 foot hit our heads on them more than once. The electric Aga (we have a gas one) took some getting used to. None of this spoiled what was a wonderful break.

  • "The most beautiful house we have ever stayed in, beautiful location, had one small problem with hot water in one side of the house but maintenance came to us within an hour to sort it, deposit returned within 3 days."

    Really happy, we are already planning a return visit.
