  • "The property was in a great location right in the middle of the village."

    The bathroom in the main house and the shower room in the Annex were both very nice. However as we were seven people (the property caters for nine) there was just not enough seats in the living room and what there was, soft, low and uncomfortable. Dining was difficult as although there was a table you had to move all the living room furniture and find all the garden chairs from around the property to be able to use it. Both the bedding and the kitchen equipment although clean was old, miss matched and could do with updating.

    Thank you very much for your feedback, we are pleased to hear that you loved the property and its location. We can only apologise if during your stay the beddings were mis matching, they normally aren't. In regards to the seating, there are enough for 9 people however next time if you are struggling to find something please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you again for leaving a review and we hope to see you back soon. Property Owner

  • "The kitchen area had an unpleasant odour ..."

    The kitchen area had an unpleasant odour The double bedroom door didn’t close properly All the bedroom mattresses and bed linen felt old and a request to view the annexe / additional sleeping zone was ignored by the vendor

    Thank you for your feedback. We are surprised and sorry that things weren't right for you as two days prior we had 100% score and a very positive review. We had had new carpets fitted the day of your arrival which we didnt realise were causing the bedroom door to be a bit tight when closing. We have now had this refitted and it closes fully. Comfort is subjective, however the mattresses were new last year and therefore hardly used, we have however got new mattress for the remaining single bed as well as replaced some of the bedding. We have had a deep clean done and the whole cottage clean, tidy and many areas have been newly painted. On the day we rushed to allow you to start your stay early as you requested. The annexe spare key had been lost however you stated you would not be using the annexe and when it was mentioned you said it was not a problem - otherwise we would have shown you around - however sorry for the misunderstanding. We hope to see you again! Property Owner

    Ideally situated in the centre of Ingleton with takeaways, restaurants and pubs within easy walking distance and a childrens play area only a five minute walk away. The Ingleton Waterfall Walk was only a ten minute walk away.

  • "Fountain House is in an excellent location , it met our holiday expectations ."

    It's location was great for our activities. The Waterfall walk was in the village of Ingleton and was a 5 minute walk from the house. Fountain house was comfortable and was large enough for 6 adults and a dog. Having the court yard between the house and the annexe was great for enjoying the sun! We would definatley recommend Fountain House and look forward to staying there again in the future.

    Fountain House was warm and was very well equipped, the large front room still has that cosy feel and the set-up of the separate annex suited our party mix. If we stay in Ingleton again we would certainly be staying at Fountain House.

  • "A nice little house in the centre of Ingleton that can accommodate 8-10 people comfortably."

    The separated room in the back garden / annex may sound quirky but it is actually quite comfortable and self sufficient. The kitchen has all the cooking amenities that one could need (without any food). The local pub (1 min walk) is where you park your vehicle for a small donation, and unloading and loading of your stuff will have to be quick (if you park on the double-yellow lines outside the house). The local supermarket (Co-Op) is two doors from this property and a range of small restaurants, take-aways, playground and a heated outdoor swimming pool are all within walking distance. The only negative I would say is that some of the rooms, especially some parts/cabinets of the kitchen have a strong damp / unpleasant smell. Overall it was great stay at the Fountain House and we could consider it again, if travelling with a large number of people.

  • "Unfortunately kitchen smelt of vomit since the day we got there, despite mopping the floor 3 times and washing down the cupboards."

    Stains on both pillow cases in kids bedroom, main light and 1 touch lamp did not work in that bedroom also. King size Bed very uncomfortable, gave us both a bad back. The two singles in the annexe did not push together to make a double which was inconvenient for the couple staying in there.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry you experienced some issues during your stay, if we had been made aware we would have tried to resolve these as soon as possible. The property is thoroughly cleaned before and after each guests stay, we have also done a deep clean recently. We have replaced the king size mattress and invested in extra new bedding. There are spare bulbs available for all lights in the property. We did leave our number for you to call if there were any issues and wish we had know so it hadn't affected your stay. Property Owner

  • "Whilst the house was lovely, very rustic and quaint, the uneven floors upstairs and the badly fitting, squeaky, creaking doors we feel we should have been warned about."

    We were a family of 6 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs and though the living area was a good size the kitchen was barely adequate for us all to cook and eat in though there were plenty of pots etc. We did not have enough towels for us all so it was a good job we had taken extra (for swimming) which we had to use for bathing/showering. The beds in the annex were not particularly comfortable and condusive to a good nights' sleep. The general area is beautiful and Ingleton Falls and the outdoor heated swimming pool are not to be missed.

    Thank you for your feedback it is appreciated. Due to the property being over 300 years old it does have its quirks such as the uneven floors. I have contacted Sykes to add a note to the property description. I thank you for your comments regarding the towels this will be looked into. We will continue to monitor the bed situation, we do find that bed comfort is very dependent on individuals preferences. Once again thank you for your feedback and I hope you had a pleasant stay.

    ). Only thing we didn't like was the bed … a sprung mattress and a really low bed - reminded me why we switched to memory-foam a long time ago! Really secure garden was important with three dogs (including a Working Cocker who likes to jump) so the high wall gave privacy and security.

  • "The cottage was well placed in the village and had a lovely courtyard ."

    Unfortunately we all felt it needed a good deep clean and a complete overhaul decoration wise. It was comfortable and roomy for 9 people but the oven was nowhere near up to standard and if we did use it it took forever to heat up !!!!!! Such a shame as ingleton is a beautiful village and as I said the cottage is perfectly placed but wasn’t as nice as we expected. The utility room and annex are fantastic though , just the main building could do with some tlc, maybe to bring it up to the standard of the bathroom in the main part , as that is lovely .
