  • "The downpipe from the rear gutter, outside the rear upstairs bedroom is blocked and as a consequence water is overflowing and splashing down the wall."

    The wall light nearest to the front door is prone to bouts of flickering, which suggests a loose collection. One light bulb in the ceiling of the kitchen area needs to be replaced.

    Thank you very much for letting us know about these matters. This helps us keep on top of maintenance. Unfortunately, at this time of year the falling leaves to tend to block the gutters!! As soon as we were notified we arranged for the gutter to be cleared and we have also booked in for the electrics to be sorted. Once again thanks for the feedback. We hope to see you again soon!

  • "We were very happy with the cottage, the only thing that seemed not to work perfectly were the waste bins…other people seemed to use our plastics bin for their general waste!"

    Perhaps some more prominent reminders of where to put what are needed in the other cottages as well. Thank you for letting us this very well equipped cottage!

    We're so pleased to hear you were happy with the cottage. Yes, the waste bins have been a bit of a challenge lately and this is partly due to strikes by the local council, but it sounds like we need to let the neighbours know about sign-posting for their recycling bins as well. Thanks very much for letting us know. We hope you'll visit the cottage again soon, as it's always lovely to welcome guests back. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Facilities top notch. Beautiful location. Owner extremely helpful and accommodating as I was looking to stay an extra night. More outside space would have been nice given we had exceptionally nice weather! Would come back to this cottage. Thank you.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, we’re really pleased you enjoyed your stay. We’re planning to create an outdoor relaxation and dining space in the private garden at the rear, so would love it if you returned to test it out. Hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

The property

Keswick 7.9 miles.

Resting in the heart of the Lake District National Park in the peaceful settlement of Seatoller in Cumbria lies this homely, mid-terrace cottage, Scale Force.

With a delightful river running past, a toasty open fire, and handy off-road parking, this cottage offers an idyllic escape for a family or group of friends looking to explore this scenic area.

On arrival, park up before making your way into the property, passing a charming bench at the front where you can sit and enjoy the babbling sounds of the water.

Step inside and find the open-plan living space and social hub of the home, home to a kitchen, dining area and sitting area; cook up a storm in the kitchen for the family to enjoy at the table for six, before cosying up in front of the fire to watch the Smart TV.

When your eyes grow tired, choose from three well-appointed bedrooms; the first floor hosts the master bedroom, a king-size with river and countryside views, and a twin, ideal for a flexible sleeping arrangement, served by a sleek bathroom.

Back on the ground floor, the remaining bedroom, a bunk ideal for children or friends sharing, is served by an additional shower room, completing the interior of the cottage.

When it is time to discover your surroundings you won't be left short for things to do in this fabulous area.

Renowned for its hikes, cycling and watersports, the Lake District National Park has something for every avid explorer.

Buttermere Lake and Derwent Water are just a short and scenic drive away, where you can find stunning viewpoints or even get out onto the water with boat trips and kayak hire.

For a spot of history, head into Keswick with a stop at the Keswick Museum; here, you can also find a wealth of shops and restaurants so you can stock up on the essentials and treat your loved ones to a tasty dinner out.

For something a little more unique, be sure to visit The Puzzling Place for a weird and wonderful experience of mind-bending interactive displays.

Further afield, you can explore Rydal Cave or even venture to Brockhole on Windermere for family fun.

Bring your family to enjoy a break at Scale Force.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
