    Kirkbank cottage is a beautiful cottage with so many extras! A cottage implies a small place, this house is large! The living room has an open roaring fire and the dining room has a small log burner. Everything we needed was provided, dog bowls, iron, internet, hairdryer, hoover, logs, coal and firelighters...... even chocolates on arrival! We had a small problem on the Sunday night (we had locked ourselves out), the owners drove for over an hour late at night to help us and wouldn't take a penny for petrol. The lady who owns the house was in touch with us several times to see if we were ok regarding locking ourselves out - nothing was too much trouble for the owners. One last thing - location is fabulous! Ten minute walk to the lake and ten minute walk to Windermere. Thank you so much x
