  • "It was great to find the standard of this property as high as last year."

    Sometimes they can become tired but not a bit of it. We had a great time in a wonderfully relaxing and comfortable home from home.

  • "Absolutely fantastic place to stay."

    Plenty of space, great kitchen, dining room and living room. Very comfy beds. Fantastic outside area/patio and a wonderful location for walks. The only minor problem was the size of the standard under counter fridge in the kitchen which is a little bit small for a family of 6 (but only because we cooked all our meals in the house). Swapping the freezer in the pantry for a fridge or fridge/freezer would have been perfect for us.

  • "Beautiful house in a lovely setting."

    The house had everything we needed and was really cosy, which was great given the awful weather we had. The house was lovely and clean and very well equipped. Great location for walks straight from the door and plenty of local pubs for a nice choice of meals out. Lovely stay thank you

  • "A beautiful cottage for our family of 4, can easily sleep another 2 people but Plumblands provided enough space for our kids to have their own rooms."

    Plumblands is very comfortable, a home from home really. Everything we needed was available including a Christmas Tree, lights and decorations as we stayed over the holiday period. Large TV, Freeview, Blu-Ray Player and wifi, log burner with log store (kindling, fire lighters available in the nearby Co-operative shop). Kitchen was well equipped with oven, hob, dishwasher, freezer, microwave etc. Don't forget your own salt and pepper!!! Beds are extremely comfortable too! The location of the cottage was ideal, beautiful views out to the back with walking paths a few yards away. Only a 10 minute walk to Elterwater. Bird feeders also in the rear garden with food provided, I spent some time feeding the grouse by hand! Plumblands is a beautiful place to stay, I wish I lived there!

  • "An excellent location with many local walks, good heating topped up with a wood burner and its supplies ."

    Patio needs a little cleanup, maybe a few hooks over the towel rails to add drying capacity. Plenty of Birdlip including a regular peacock.

  • "Most delightful and comfortable stay."

    Especially liked the peacock which called at the back door. Request from my son, may we have some fire irons please?

  • "Lovely cottage, beautifully furnished in perfect location."

    Only thing I could think place was missing is an outside washing line … but then again it is the lakes! It would have been nice to have known their was a sky box and we could have taken our own sky card

  • "A wonderful property in an excellent location, the view from the back garden is simply awesome."

    Ample parking and access. Well equipped and well maintained, very clean. We ate out throughout our stay so didn't make use of the kitchen apart from the kettle and toaster - seems to have everything you'd need though. With a few more mugs we wouldn't have had to run the dishwasher as much. (Washing up on holibobs? Are you crazy?!!) ;) I would definitely fit an extractor in the bathroom. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return, perhaps next year as there are plenty more fells left to climb.

  • "Great house for walking from and an easy walk to the Wainwright pub."

    House has a lovely open living area, very good wifi and fabulous birds on the feeders and great views. Secluded. On the downside, there is no provision for drying 4 or more wet raincoats and boots as the hallway is very small. Could do with more towel rails for wet towels.
