    Obviously these are recently built - there are problems that really should have been addressed. These are: Wardrobe - door comes off because the slide mechanism is incorrectly installed (also the space is not wide enough to take the hangers provided. Top drawer in chest of drawers in bedroom sticks because the guide is warped - needs planing. Sealant down edge of stairway needs re-doing as the stairs have settled. The instructions for the dishwasher are incorrect as the buttons are different to the manual - I found on-line to get it to work. We would have preferred a freezer rather than a washing machine It would have been nice to have a dvd player incorporated into the TV - I managed to connect a portable one with a lot of help from the internet. When the ferry does not run then getting to the other side can be a very lengthy process - it is also possible that you cannot get back so as a foot passenger that could be awkward. The method of getting the key-code is rather silly having to make a phone call 48 hrs before getting there- why not text it or email it? Loved the place, the balcony, the Wifi . There was enough in the kitchen to make it work although smaller dishes would have been good. You really need to take everything that you are going to need for your stay although I did notice a TESCO delivery van a couple of times so would consider an order on them next time.

Mitchell Wyke Bay

This lovely set of seven cottages rest in the village of Far Sawrey, close to Hawkshead and Bowness. Each wrapped in views of a beautiful lake; the scenery can be admired from the comfort of your holiday home, as you relax in style. Boasting open plan living areas, you can look forward to evening meals after the sun sets, or simply enjoy some quiet time with your loved ones. All cottages benefit from a well-equipped kitchen and a lovely seating arrangement, so you can socialise from morning through to evening, discussing your up and coming adventures. To be at one with the views, wander outside onto the balcony, perhaps with a refreshing drink to start the day off well. The beautiful bedrooms offer a peaceful sleeping environment, and a shower room completes the accommodation. If you are looking for extra space, or hoping to bring along additional guests, Lund Cottage has three bedrooms with en-suites, and a woodburner to enhance those cosy evenings. You are sure to be impressed wherever you choose to stay. There is something for everyone in this wonderful location with the village of Far Sawrey housing a pub/restaurant, and Bowness, with shops, restaurants and leisure facilities; just a short distance across the lake by ferry. Watersports are close at hand on Windermere, along with Lake Cruises and the majestic Wray Castle to admire. Of course plenty of walking opportunities are nearby, with an abundance of scenic attractions, for an all-round memorable getaway. An excellent group of cottages for a peaceful holiday experience.
