  • "Overall a lovely stay."

    Lovely location looking over Grasmere Lake, though a steep drive up to the property. Good facilities. Everything required for the stay. Loved the heater disguised as a painting. Only disappointment was the internet did not work. This was responded to with maintenance attending, however the resolution was that it could not be resolved during our stay.

  • "Lovely setting and very comfortable."

    Temperature dropped to below -3 but the apartment stayed warm. I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation.

    So pleased you enjoyed your stay at Easedale (in, I think, the coldest week of the year so far) and thank you for the lovely review. Property Owner

  • "The property is perfectly situated within a short walk into Grasmere and is surrounded by beautiful views."

    The living room/bedroom is very comfortable and looks out on to the garden and has a lovely view if the lake. The kitchen is very well equipped and has everything you need. There are plenty of walks on the doorstep and bus stops just a short walk away going into Keswick or Kendal. This is the second time we have stayed at the property and we very much hope to visit again soon. The scenery takes your breath away.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for such a lovely review. Property Owner

    Thank you for your review, I must admit we too like being a little bit away from the centre, and think the view makes the walk worthwhile, so glad you enjoyed your stay Property Owner

    It really is a little gem of a place with magnificent views over Grasmere Lake. Everything is provided for a proper home from home stay. We look forward to returning in the near future and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family

  • "We liked this property very much."

    It was very clean, very comfortable, very fresh. The infra-red heating from a picture on the wall (and a white disc) was new to us. The view from the window was wonderful. Although it is technically in Grasmere, it is in a secluded location away from the madding crowd. It was rather lovely being able to access the path up to Alcock Tarn through a gate in the garden wall.

    Thank you for your kind comments, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and the walks! We hope to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "Really enjoyed my stay."

    Easedale was more roomy than expected. Great location and view from window was super - even on rainy days. Could have been a bit warmer though as thermostat set a bit too low and could not work out how to change it. A Smart TV would be nice too.

    We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, we do love that view as well!! The heating controls are explained in the owners handbook, it just requires you to turn the dial clockwise to your preferred temperature. There is also a small portable heater too if needed. We will make sure the handbook is clearer. May thanks Property Owner

  • "The property was musty and the smell of dog was overpowering."

    A humidifier had been left on so the bed was damp. It was dusty everywhere. Hairs in the bed and sink. Toilet roll tubes left in the bathroom. The toilet itself was dirty. The freezer was completely frozen over. Requested the travel cot and high chair and neither were left. Didn’t stay for more than one night. We stayed at another property instead. Very disappointing.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and we are sorry to hear that your stay was not what you had hoped for. We have spoken to both the cleaner and Heart of the Lakes (who manage the day to day running of the property for us) about the points you raised. Whilst this is a property that takes pets 'one small dog is allowed' it is unusual for there to be a strong smell, as the cleaners air this every time they go in. In addition to this we also supply the Shark pet hoover to remove as much pet hair as possible, that said we have asked that the property has a longer airing time, where possible. The property does benefit from a very large 6ft by 4ft sash window as well as a side window to allow a full flow of air. Regarding the damp bed; this again is surprising as fresh bedding was put on that afternoon before your arrival. The ‘humidifier’ you mention is actually a dehumidifier so actively removes any excess moisture from the room, as well as some odours. Regarding the freezer we believe that this may be because previous occupants may have not fully closed the door and as such the small freezer box in the top of the fridge may have frozen. We are installing a new kitchen in October 2022 so hopefully this will remove this issue. In relation to the general cleanliness of the toilet and dust the cleaners do not recall leaving it in this state but we can only apologise if this was the case. Unfortunately, having spoken to Heart of the Lakes it does seem they had not placed the highchair and cot at the property at the point of your arrival, for which we are sorry. Heart of the Lakes did assure us that whilst this was an oversight, if you had called them that day they would have been able to rectify that immediately, as their office is only a few miles away. It seems that unfortunately you did not let Heart of the Lakes know about any of the above issues you mentioned until after you had left, and not during your stay, and unfortunately did not call them to say you were leaving prematurely. Otherwise, I have great confidence all of these issues could have been rectified, as we have found Heart of the Lakes to be very responsive to issues raised by guests. As you can see the vast majority of feedback we receive is extremely positive so we always ensure that we act upon any negative experiences. We do hope this response is helpful and assures you that your experience was an extraordinary experience, for which we are extremely sorry, and that we have taken any action required to remedy any such issues.

  • "Lovely apartment with stunning views in a peaceful location with short (but steep return) walk into Grasmere, comfy bed and good shower room."

    Good table/window in bedroom/lounge if you love light for jigsaws!!! Minor irritations: people above a bit heavy-footed and have to walk right past your window to come and go....and the dehumidifier ticks during the night (wasn't sure if we could switch it off, so just left it)...but these were little things and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Easedale.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave feedback, the dehumidifier is on a timer to come on during the afternoons hopefully while people are out walking, it allows us to keep the property at optimum conditions, that said sometimes it gets turned off at the wall which can impact when it comes on.

    Thank you so much for that lovely feedback, so glad you enjoyed it as much as we do. We are hoping to agree a new deal with our current waste company to have recycling bins. We will also add a new note in the owners folder highlighting where the bins can be located. Property Owner

  • "The apartment was very comfortable and in a really lovely setting with great walks from the door."

    However, it did feel like the owner had not kept up with certain things. The main thing for us was that there was no docking station and we had really banked on being able to play our music via an Ipod each evening. We were told by you that the owner said that the previous people had broken it and one had been ordered but not arrived in time, however, had you let us know we could have brought our own and this would have made our stay a lot more enjoyable (this is because we eat in each night and really enjoy to have music playing whilst cooking and eating}. The dehumidifier (which it requests is left switched on) came on in the middle of the night and woke us - we didn't know what it was and had to get up to see what was happening - it could be that the previous people had turned it off and so the timing changed. The instruction folder said there was freeview TV available on AV but we could not get it to work. The DVD remote had no batteries and there were no DVDs to go with the player anyway. The HOTL response was that we 'could feel free to go out and buy some batteries' but we didn't see why we should do this and only really reported it so they could be bought for the next people staying. There was previous feedback in the reviews that the bathroom sink was blocked and very slow to drain away - they were told it would be fixed but it was still like it when we went. The handle of the freezer compartment in the fridge dropped off as soon as we tried to open it on arrival and had obviously been previously broken and just balanced back on. Apart from the lack of Ipod these were just little niggles but overall felt like a lack of customer care which did detract from our enjoyment. It was a shame because it's a fabulous setting but would put us off returning. Thank you.

    Thank you for your feedback Mrs Smart. We are happy that you found the apartment comfortable and enjoyed its location. We appreciate the time taken to send your observations which we have now discussed with the owner. They have taken on board all the points you have raised and would like to update their findings. Unfortunately, the damaged docking station has been replaced with a Bluetooth speaker that also charges wirelessly. We can only apologise for not informing you before your stay. The dehumidifier is on a timer, some guests do turn it on/off which effects the timer. The TV and remote control are both in full working order. (some properties have replacement batteries/lightbulbs, unfortunately these can go missing) Due to covid guidelines, to keep our guests and cleaners safe re cross contamination all DVD’s, books have been removed from Easedale and we will update the description on the webpage. Due to the location, Grasmere village is on a flat level and some properties drain slower than others if the water table is high. The freezer part has been ordered and we are awaiting the part to be fitted. We have now updated the description re docking station and DVD info. Thank you once again for your feedback and we do hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

    We've stayed in a different accommodation (Helm Crag)in this building on 3 occasions so knew of its enviable position overlooking Grasmere Lake. We have to say that Easedale was actually better for us and easily exceeded our expectations. The entrance is a lot closer and easier to reach from the communal parking. Inside the apartment is clean, comfortable and has everything you could need for a really comfortable stay. Having a living room/bedroom really worked for us meaning our dog didn't have first night anxiety when we went to bed. We look forward to returning to this property in the future and would definitely recommend it to family and friends.
