  • "This was a lovely property in lots of ways, but the beds let it down."

    We chose the bed with the best mattress but it was not comfortable. We did not sleep well. We have stayed in many self catering places at home and abroad and have never before come across bed linen that was not ironed. Clean, but creased and crumpled will not do. On the plus side, the property was spacious, with an excellent kitchen and lashings of hot water. It was well situated to explore the local area and the Lake District.

  • "A number of lights, both inside and out, were not working."

    There was also the old classic of the cooker hood not having been cleaned underneath, where all the oil and grease collects - we have had this before on a number of occasions. Lack of shelf space in the en-suite bathroom, and the bedroom needs a wardrobe.

  • "The house was really good."

    High level of finishings, lovely bedrooms and bathrooms. Dog friendly with a cool utility for the dog to sleep in. When we needed some bits, a quick call to the owner met with a prompt response. The garden was a good size and enclosed. Lots of parking for cars. Penrith was only a 10min drive away for shops. A Co-op, chippy and pizza place was 5 mins away in Shap. Really good base off the A66 and A6 to go through the Lakes. Would recommend happily.
