  • "Crozier is a lovely cosy cottage."

    The views of the mountains are beautiful and the area is quiet with just the birds singing. It is very convenient location with a short walk into the village where there are many places to eat. I found the kitchen well equipped and good for cooking meals. The beds were fairly comfy, but the sofa a bit soft. The garden is completely secure and the parking is good. My son has a problem with his mobile data because of the parental control the owner has put on the WiFi. I didn't use the WiFi password on my mobile so I didn't have the same issue. Overall the week at Crozier was enjoyable.

    Lovely spacious property, very well equipped, with a big kitchen. Property listing doesn’t detail that there is a downstairs toilet.

  • "For us this cottage would have ticked every box had it not been so grubby."

    The bathrooms were clean and kitchen work tops but all doors every where and skirting birds were filthy. We spent a good couple of hours cleaning and hoovering before we were able to relax. Also there was a smashed ornamental mirror in the garden and a smashed lampshade in the hall (full of dead insects) of which had been reported by a previous guest who had also raised the lack of cleanliness. Accordingly I then raised these issues myself prior to our arrival and was notified that all would be sorted but the lampshade was still smashed when we arrived. Sykes response was to send someone out to clean again but I was not happy to waste even more time of my holiday for something that should have already been done prior to our arrival. VERY reluctant to book with Sykes again!

    The only issue we had was that the property was too cold as we had quite cold and wet weather for the time of year. We followed the instructions to raise the temperature but with no success, As more rain and cold weather was forecast we cut short our stay which was disappointing.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to read of your issues with the heating, unfortunately we were not informed and so could not assist you with some troubleshooting. We are glad that you liked the property and all the area had to offer. Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "The cottage/property is well equipped and generally as expected."

    We did have some minor niggles: There was no toilet paper in the WC, only in the bathroom. Most of the tumbler glasses in the kitchen had small chips around the rims, which could cut. There was no hand towel in the kitchen. When we came to vacuum clean the floors, we found the cleaner cylinder had been left full of dirt and the brush roller was completely clogged with hair and fibres - we had to clean this all out before we could use the cleaner. Some additional constructive comments: The paintwork on the doors and walls is looking like it needs ‘freshening-up’. Some of the doors were dirty around the handles. The rug in the lounge area is looking dirty and is not very practical; it is probably the reason for a lot of the fibres that were in the vacuum cleaner brushes. We avoided using the cleaner on the rug. The covers on the settees were looking a bit grubby.

    Thank you for your comments. We take all comments on board. Thank you for letting us know your thoughts. Property Owner

    The best location for everything, walks, pubs, etc. We loved the layout of the house and immediately felt at home. Everything we needed was there and if not Co-op in the village has anything you might not have. Best places to eat in the village, Good Sport, a place run by locals so nice to support them too, Tweedies and Jumble Room. The latter has been excellent ever since I first went around 20 years ago and never disappoints. Recommend booking all if you want to go in the evening.

    The location is great for walks from the door and the parking area is generous. It was clean and had all the facilities you need, but was let down by a lack of small things such as toilet paper and kitchen roll. Only the tiniest amount of washing up liquid was provided so that you had to buy those basics. Three or four logs sufficient for one fire would have been appreciated.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Crozier cottage."

    However we were concerned about several areas of black mould throughout the house. All the bedrooms had mould in ceiling corners and in the bunk room directly above the sleeping area. Noticeable also in the kitchen and front porch. Obviously this could pose a risk to some peoples health and hopefully the problems causing this will be rectified for future visits. It is not something we would expect to see in a premium holiday property.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Crozier Cottage, however we are sorry to hear you found mould at the property. This hasn't been mentioned by previous guests, our maintenance team along with the owner will now investigate further. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, regards HOTL team Thank you too for bringing this to our attention. The damp weather this autumn outside and then the warmth in the property resulted in a circulation problem. We have sorted out all of the areas we could see and are having the double glazing in the property altered to prevent this happening again. Best wishes, Owners of Crozier Cottage. Property Owner

  • "Generally all good with the cottage."

    I would suggest you get rid of the rugs in the living room and in the hallway, they are both light in colour and although im sure they had been hoovered they just look grimy and give that impression. After all, its a cottage that takes dogs so why would you have cream coloured rugs, almost impossible to keep looking good. Also would suggest an air freshener in the living room, as you walk into the living room the dog smell hits you, again expected in a cottage that takes pets but the smells could be combatted with air fresheners. We bought two air fresheners at the start of the holiday and left them in the cottage. Overall pleased with the cottage and location, disappointed with the customer service from heart of the lakes after my stay regarding a set of keys left at the cottage, a lot of emails and calls to eventually get my keys back.

    However the listing needs to say parking for 3 very small cars and the shed for bikes is NOT secure.

    HI, thanks for your feedback. Just wanted to clarify for others to see, that there is a shed in the back garden for our garden furniture where bikes can be stored. We have locks on both doors, with keys inside the propertywhere others are kept, which can be used for all to access this. And re parking, there is space for two big cars and one small car on the main drive and then as described in our booklet, another space for a normal sized car in front of the window behind the hedge, where we have had slate put down and path section lowered so this can be used for parking too.

    We burnt logs on the fire this time and it was so cosy after a day out walking. We hope to return again and share the experience with friends. Noted some lovely new 'Circulon' pans which we found on this visit; as we cook fresh food every day, the selection of kitchen equipment is excellent.

    Overall the cottage was comfortable, spacious and generally clean. However the living room carpets appeared grubby and stained and would have benefitted from a quick power clean! . The cooking utensils were well past their use by dates and it was disconcerting to find someone’s fried breakfast still stuck to the pan.

  • "Crozier cottage is in a fabulous location, both for views and local amenities."

    It is well equipped and comfortable and well thought out. Not all facilities are listed by Sykes, ie downstairs toilet and use of Netflix not mentioned. Since Sykes took over from Heart of the lakes, standards of cleanliness and customer service have fallen dramatically. Despite the cleanliness of Crozier Cottage being mentioned by previous guests, some of whom were blamed by Sykes for being "irresponsible dog owners" one of the problems was still not addressed. This was due to the hoover being over full with weeks of dirt and dog hairs which blocked it completely and deposited the dirt back on the carpet. It took my husband half an hour to clean it out and get it useable for us. The general cleanliness in the current Covid climate was also lacking, particularly after we received an email telling us that our access time was put back to 6.00 pm because the usual cleaner was isolating and extra cleaners had been brought in. The email was sent after 2.00 pm on our arrival day and was not read until the next day, and strangely when we arrived at 4.05 pm there were no cleaners on site, so we went in. Prior to our holiday i contacted Sykes twice and was promised a call back that I never received. Their Customer Relations who deal with complaints were quite rude to me and the phone call to them achieved nothing. Each time I phoned Sykes I had difficulty hearing the person dealing with me because of the laughing and personal conversations going on in the back ground. Apparently Customer relations seemed to think this was fine! So I feel very sorry for Heart of the Lakes who have always been good and professional when we have used them many times before. I would certainly think very carefully before using Sykes again, we look for smaller companies that care about their customers. The good reviews that Sykes get are generally relating to the ease of the booking system they use, not about their customer care or the actual cottages.

  • "Literally gutted!"

    The cottage on your website is absolutely stunning. When you get there the outside was gorgeous but as soon as you get in it all went done hill :( the whole place was smelly. It was like wet dog everywhere you went and it was dirty… there was dog hairs in lumps on the carpet. The kitchen was Very untidy and all the cupboards and everything was dirty. Before we could use anything we put them in the dishwasher. Which is something we definitely shouldn’t of had to do. A little disappointed with the quality of the bedding and the towels in a cottage priced at the amount we paid I would’ve thought the cottage would have quite luxury items it really does let the side down. And two toilet rolls for seven nights with five people is definitely ridiculous. We just found ourselves stocking up on things that should’ve already been in the cottage more dishwasher tablets, clothes, toilet rolls and oven gloves are a must which I burnt my arm on the oven. With it been a massive time with Covid and everything you asked us to do beforehand getting to the cottage was just a really big disappointment to see how dirty and smelly it was considering other people would’ve been there and hygiene and cleanliness is a massive thing at the moment. The tumble dryer doesn’t work at all. The Hoover when you hoover the house makes the house smell like wet dog it’s absolutely disgusting the Hoover it definitely needs looking at. The last thing I’d like to mention is The cottage is advertised with a leisure centre or leisure facilities should I say. And when we got there at the leisure facilities they told us that they haven’t been letting anybody from cottages come for the last year so that was something else that was advertised that we couldn’t actually use. Really disappointed with our first holiday with the amount of money we’ve paid as well. I was going to wait till Monday to phone the office but would like some sort of communication as I’m really not happy with the standard and what we got for that weeks holiday that we’ve saved up for.

    Thank you for your feedback in relation to your stay at Crozier Cottage The owners take great care of their property and were very disappointed to hear of the cleanliness issues that you encountered upon arrival.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

Grasmere 4.4 miles; Windermere 4.7 miles; Keswick 16.7 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
