  • "Overall the property was excellent."

    The sofa was a trifle uncomfortable for people of our age (Over 65). It was very modern with deep seating which if you have difficulty in moving can be a problem. The kitchen could do with a couple of cooking/serving dishes. Mike, the property manager was very helpful. Overall an excellent stay and will be back.

    Thank you for the feedback back, it really helps us improve our offering. It's great you had an excellent stay and we hope to see you again soon! Mike and the team Property Owner

  • "Superb flat in an amazing building."

    Many thoughtful touches to make stay excellent, especially in the kitchen equipment - probably the first time we've stayed somewhere with properly sharp knives! And literally everything we needed. Great decor, everything functional worked perfectly, games in communal areas good for rainy days. All round excellence - many thanks.

  • "Wow! What a superb property!"

    We had a great week here. The property is amazing and the apartment has everything you need for a really enjoyable and comfortable stay in the South Lakes area. The attention to detail is brilliant and I would highly recommend staying here. We met one of the owners, Mike, a couple of times during our stay and he was so welcoming, informative and helpful. Getting to the South Lakes is really easy and it's only a 10 min stroll into Ulverston itself. We'd recommend The Mill and The Farmers for a meal out. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback, it really mean a lot you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully we will see you again soon Mike and the team Property Owner
