"The only improvement would be for some form of covering for the hot tub"
"Excellent place loved it , life jackets were a mystery as no indication on what they were for"
"Overall it is impossible not to enjoy a stay at Lake View."
In balance however: some features exceeded our expectations and some were disappointing. There was an abundance of modern conveniences which made a great first impression and marvellous views: albeit either side of a large tree. The hot tub was a welcome feature and used on a regular basis. In settling in we found the bed very creaky and the pillows were ultra soft. A wooden slat under the wet room door was loose. Being of an older generation we found the sofa very low to sit comfortably and had a little difficulty sitting and rising. We would have sat at the dining table more but the seats were hard wooden ones as it appeared essentially a good quality patio set rather than dedicated indoor dining furniture. Given the general high level of technology the provision of a microwave was conspicuous by its absence. Cleanliness was general good but the standard lamp light bulbs were covered in dust and there were crumbs in between the slats of the table. The pepper mill didn't work. The hot tub was great but positioned central to the small terrace. The terrace table and chairs were at the rear and it was not possible to see the lake when sitting due to the low surrounding wall. If the hot tub was better positioned, and the table and chairs moved to the front, it would be possible to sit and enjoy the view. Access to the property can be difficult to find and it would be helpful to be provided with a specific reference such as What 3 Words or similar. We are certain everyone would none the less enjoy a stay at Lake View but those with age, mobility or medical considerations may experience some difficulties.
The listing didn’t do the property justice….the views from the lounge were far better than the pictures, everything was top quality. Beautiful location, easy to get taxis, great foodie location. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We also noticed that if anyone put a comment on improvement it had been implemented! Would recommend to anyone!
"We enjoyed an amazing holiday at Lake View."
It is a spectacular location with beautiful lake views. The accommodation was first class, everything was of a very high standard and perfectly maintained. Having its own waterfront with kayaks provided was a bonus in our minds. The hot tub was lovely to enjoy in the cool evenings. Wow ... this was a first class holiday.
"Beautiful apartment with stunning views."
Excellent facilities. Fabulous!
Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope to welcome you again soon. The Owner Relations Team - Lakes Cottage Holidays Property Owner
"We had a wonderful honeymoon at Lake View!"
The apartment was spotless, beautifully presented and in the perfect location. It had all the mod cons you need from a self-catering holiday, and everything was furnished to such a high standard. The kayaks were a lovely touch and the hot tub was a welcome luxury after walking in the lakes, especially after Scafell! Having my morning coffee with a view over Windermere was just idyllic, I wish we could go back! Thank you. The only things that would have improved our comfort was having control of the temperature of the apartment, it was quite warm and the thermostat was set at 21 and we couldn’t lower it ourselves. The bedding was hot and the pillows really soft, so I ended up sleeping under the throw instead. A lighter duvet and some spare pillows that guests could pick from would make all the difference. The housekeeper was lovely and did what she could to help. All in all, a remarkable place to stay!
"Publish - Super property would recommend 100%."
Don’t publish for owner only - One small issue for us, that we were unable to regulate the temp in the bedroom, so sleeping was tricky as a little too warm. Perhaps the option of a thinner quilt ???? Would not stop us returning tho :).
"Beautiful setting, comfortable luxurious property."
Perfect position for walking around Coniston and surrounding areas. Quiet location. Thank you. We would definitely return.
"Lovely modern property with a gorgeous view!"
Hot tub and kayak were fab also. Definitely recommend
"Excellent property would stay again!"
"Catrina was great, thank you"
"Easy terms for booking ,great helpful and friendly staff , from start to finish."
Stunning property, great location, will definitely book again . A big thank you to staff for wife's birthday present
"Some dinner mats would have been useful so as not to mark the table."
"Re kayak and terrace by the lake Is this actually part of the experience?"
As the lake was basically blocked off from use by 6 boats and approx 25 guests from the big house at the bottom Also apparently the chairs to sit by the lake removed by mid-week!! Not very welcoming I’m sure you agree
"One of the best places we have ever stayed at, me and the wife had a fantastic stay."
The views are amazing and we sat on the jetty every night to see the sun set across the lake. The terrace area was awesome and the use of kayaks was an extra bonus. Thank you, we will be back.
"We had a fantastic stay at Lake View and didn’t want to leave."
The views were stunning and the cottage was spotlessly clean. It was quite warm in the cottage, despite there being no underfloor heating on and the bed was a little uncomfortable. It would have helped to have had more information available in the cottage, for example we were only aware of our terrace area because the housekeeper let us know. It was the perfect place to go every day to feed the ducks! Maybe providing some local tourist information or details of buses etc would have been useful, although we found this ourselves. A microwave would also be a useful addition. Having said all of that I’d go back tomorrow if I could. The perfect base for a relaxing break away.
"We stayed for our 10 year Wedding anniversary."
Absolutely stunning view, accommodation was immaculate and very well equipped kitchen. Hot tub was devine and kayak was an added bonus. A lovely place to relax after visiting the beautiful lakes and forests.
"Our expectations were exceeded with Lake View."
It’s stunning. The view from the windows of the lake is beautiful. The apartment was immaculate with everything we required, from a Quooker hot tap to a tablet providing music apps for the room speaker. The bed was so comfortable and the jacuzzi was great after a days walk. Private parking was lovely and the canoe and table and chairs down near the water was a massive bonus. Will be back again!!
"Celebrated our honeymoon here for 5 nights: Amazing views from the property, the stay was perfect!"
Only one criticism, maybe have clear signs for which hot tub belongs to which cottage, as we found our neighbours in ours. But otherwise perfect
"We had the most amazing week for our honeymoon."
Everything was fantastic and we didn't want to leave. The location was amazing with a bonus of having a kayak to use on the lake. Having a hottub just outside the door was so convenient. The views from the picture window were amazing to take in while having a morning coffee (we loved the coffee machine so much we bought on when we got home). It was so peaceful and even though there are properties around we still felt secluded. We will definitely visit again and if anyone can't decide.... book you won't regret it! Thank you so much x
"Maybe use of a microwave and the bathroom fan didn’t work during our stay ..."
Maybe use of a microwave and the bathroom fan didn’t work during our stay appreciated all the high end products we had an amazing stay great weather meant the hot tub used regularly great asset to the apartment
"Lake View was everything we could have hoped for."
Modern, uncluttered and finished to a very specification; it made our stay easy and relaxing. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a well equipped stay at The Lakes.
"Second stay at Lake View and we love it, the views are amazing and the apartment is beautiful."
The only thing I would say is that it could do with some lights or something on the gate as its really difficult to find at night time especially if the weather is bad.
"Our stay at lake view was fantastic."
Everything was as it said would be.marvelous views of the lake and the lodge was first class.the private hot tub was brilliant and very private..cant review it highly enough.brilliant..when the recent storm knocked the power off the staff were so helpful and quick to respond..
"Absolutely stunning place with amazing views, would definitely recommend and will be coming back again"
"This place is amazing with every mod con you could possibly imagine."
Modern, spectacular views and to be honest, better than we had even expected! The only downside for us was the bed/matress. It was really uncomfortable which disturbed both nights sleep. Apart from that the place is spot on.
"Everything was absolutely perfect except from the bed, the mattress was very uncomfortable and wasn’t flat had slopes going to either side and meant was difficult to sleep on."
Even contemplated sleeping on the living room sofa some nights.
"Beautiful location although would recommend car is needed to get around as no path along lake on this side."
Only downside to accommodation was the bed was awful, the mattress was hard and uneven. You can hear the other holiday apartment below and due to no signage/unclear signage those residents used our hot tub for 3 days thinking it was theirs! Other than that the sort ent itself was done to a high standard with great views across the lake!
"The standard of the accommodation exeeded our expectations everything was top of ..."
The standard of the accommodation exeeded our expectations everything was top of the range very well equipped fantastic views and the staff we met could not have been more helpful
"The property was stunning, immaculately clean and really was better than anticipated, views over the lake are incredible and would go as far as saying the property was undersold as truely beautiful."
Only small drawbacks were bed isn’t very comfortable, having said that I’m fussy and the fact that the property is located out of safe walking distance, due to busy road, to the town of bowness but having said that an equally godsend as very tranquil. Was an amazing week very relaxing.
"The location makes it difficult to walk anywhere , a car had to be used all the time."
"Booked with Sykes for the first time, easy process and kept in touch."
Had a call from Lakes whilst staying in the accommodation to check everything was ok which I thought was a really nice touch. Would book again and recommend.
"Lovely location and views, beautiful apartment, needs somewhere to hang/ dry walking cloths, Dot very helpful when lock was a bit stiff."
A week wasn’t long enough.
"Fantastic place to stay, we stayed here for 2 nights and wish it had been 7 nights."
Will definitely be going back.
"Stayed here as a surprise for my fiancé’s 30th birthday."
The view was spectacular, even better than I had imagined from the pictures. Kitchen was great, place was super clean. My only criticisms are the bed is noisy when you turn and sounds like the wooden slats are broken. Secondly we were so conscious of the people staying below us as we could hear every single word and footstep they took which considering they were below us it suddenly made us very aware that they would be able to hear us even more and therefore you suddenly struggle to relax. The place would really benefit from some soundproofing, we struggled to sleep until the final night when nobody was underneath us and it was deadly silent. Other than that the place was amazing, far better than I could have imagined.
"Booked this trip as a surprise for my girlfriend and I and it was even more special than I could’ve imagined."
Accommodation was stunning, faultlessly clean and modern and all in perfect working order. Views were stunning and the hot tub terrace was especially private. Beautiful shower room and bedroom really clean and tidy with excellent facilities and a really comfy bed. Really was an amazing few days and we will definitely be coming back! Worth every penny!
"This was a really good place to stay Very relaxing and quiet"
"The heating system was broke which led to us sleeping in 23 degrees."
Put a dampener on what was a great holiday. The sidelights leading up the stairs also turned themselves off halfway through the holiday so we struggled to see after dark.
"The place is beautiful, but 2 pieces of feedback you should note 1."
The heating is stuck on a high setting and the thermostat needs unlocking to be able to use it. The people onsite were unable to fix this problem so the temperature was high throughout the week. 2. The bed is very uncomfortable. For such a high end let, to have a bed with a basic wooden slat base was disappointing and should be corrected. We ended up moving the mattress into the seating area and sleeping on the floor rather than use the bedroom. I recommend you purchase a decent base for the bed as others will surely have similar concerns.
"The apartment is top class."
The facilities, location and views were perfect. The hot tub was perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. It was so good we have already booked again for next year.
"We went to the Lake View property for 5 days with our baby."
I particularly had many years without met my expectations when traveling is about. Lakeview Exceeded them. I highly recommend this place for couples who enjoy the American Comfort, everything is like brand new, the view is amazing, is very well located but quiet at the same time. Nothing bad to say but avoid hot days due is an upper floor and can get very hot.
"On our arrival the staff were so lovely and welcoming and even gifted us a free bottle of Prosecco as it was our honeymoon."
The property Pouper Weir itself was amazing with such great views, very clean and a lovely hot tub to use each night. The only issue we had was the heat within the property. We followed the instructions on how to turn the floor heating right down however the property was still so warm inside which made it very difficult to sleep at night. We could turn the heating right down to the lowest temperature on the control panel but it didn’t seem to have any effect. We also had a fan but it didn’t really have much effect with cooling the rooms down. Despite that though it’s such a lovely place to visit on holiday and such a lovely property.
"Lots of building work ongoing around the apartment but the builders do their best not to get in the way of the holiday."
Apartment is clean, comfortable and finished to a high standard. Great view of the lake.
"We really enjoyed our stay but a few things that could have made it even better."
There was No can opener Outdoor lights going up the stairs would be useful Electric gate wouldn’t work sometimes
Thank you for your valuable feedback. The outside lights were checked and are operating correctly. The electric gate has now been fixed, this was damaged due to the high winds and a can opener has been put into the property. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Property Owner
"This was our first time booking a holiday cottage."
Facilities and property far exceeded expectations and it was a lovely relaxing stay! Would recommend to anybody who hasn’t tried before.
"Everything was just perfect, apart from finding it haha absolutely would recommend to anyone and everyone"
"We came to the lake view propertie for my partners birthday, it’s everything ..."
We came to the lake view propertie for my partners birthday, it’s everything we could of asked for and more we loved it was so clean and picture perfect, the only one thing I would say is it’s hard to get to as there is also a house in its own called the lake view that got confusing before we found our property x
"We had a lovely stay at Lake View the apartment is beautiful and the view is stunning."
However we were very disappointed that there were building works being carried out on site but were not warned about this. It meant that we had diggers driving past the apartment and also the noise. Another issue we had was being blocked in by contractors. For us we felt quite disappointed due to the amount of money we paid for the apartment hoping for a relaxing peaceful week which was disrupted.
