  • "A lovely cottage in a fantastic location and would return if just a couples get away."

    A few critiques. Listing is a bit misleading, the garden is detached from the property and the master bedroom is only a double. The water heater is inadequate for the property. With just two of us having quick showers we were running out of hot water. I dread to think how a fully occupied house would cope!

    Thank you for your feedback. The listing is correct at stating that the rooms consist of one king-size bed and one double bed. We are sorry to read that you had some problems with the hot water. Unfortunately, as we weren't aware of these, we were not able to resolve them to make your stay more enjoyable. We are glad that you enjoyed the cottage and all the area has to offer.

  • "Unless you’re on a push-bike, don’t try and park directly outside the property."

    Hot water system for showers isn’t great. Other than that, nice property in a good location. The Mortal Man and the Queens Head within walking distance. Beds were really comfortable. Would stay again.

  • "Not perfect Lovely cottage in a scenic spot with great dog walks on the doorstep."

    Great location for getting into Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside etc There were a number of frustrations with our stay, however: The garden doesn’t adjoin the cottage so rather than being able to simply open a door to let dog out we had to put his lead on and take him across the roadway to access the garden - not ideal in middle of night or poor weather - this detail is not clear in the cottage specifications. The door knobs on both access doors can be tricky to turn - we spent way too much time frustrating trying to twist them open. The kitchen pack is inadequate, barely enough washing up liquid for 2 bowlfuls of water and only a few dishwasher tablets. We ended up buying a bottle of washing up liquid. There was only 1 toilet roll! I didn’t expect there to be a week’s supply but thought there’d be more than one roll. Again we had to buy more. No hand soap in bathroom or kitchen - we had to buy 2 bars of soap. Main room is described as king size - the bed is not king size, just a standard double. Misleading. There was only one log for wood burner and a meagre amount of kindling. Specification said fuel would be provided. Again, I wasn’t expecting a week’s supply, but in previous rentals you get a couple of night’s worth of logs? One log!! Frustrating and disappointing. Wood burner has no companion set, so no poker or tongs to assist with fire stoking. Shed key is missing. I was so incredulous re there only being one log I wanted to check the shed in case there were more there - folder in house says shed key in top kitchen drawer - it is not and could not be located. Main bedroom would benefit from curtains, the horizontal blind not adequate to block out the glare from the neighbour’s security light which repeatedly came on and off. To summarise we had a lovely week in the Lakes, cottage is very attractive, but is missing some simple touches which would have elevated our stay to something more special. There is nothing in the way of greeting or hospitality so if you do choose to stay here bring your own loo roll, soap, salt and pepper (both cruets were empty), washing up liquid, logs and kindling. Reading previous reviews, the vast majority of the frustrations I have outlined have already been documented by previous guests so I have no confidence they’ll be taken on board.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you found the location to your liking and enjoyed the walks from the cottage. We will take a look at the listing to ensure that it is up to date, regarding the points raised. As the property is self catering, the pack left is intended as a starter pack.

  • "The cottage and location is great."

    I have only a few minor nick picks to raise. I found that the round door knob handles used to enter the cottage were very hard to operate, I would say i'm fairly strong but have dry hands. Also the window in one of the bedrooms had been broken and a temporary repair had been made. I believe the reason for this is that the windows were binding where they had been overpainted. Also we found two pair of green tights under one of the beds clearly missed when cleaning. It was unclear which wheelie bin belonged to the cottage which could have been rectified by writing the name of the cottage on the bin. Finally the parking in the designated spot was tight but just possible for an Audi A6 estate however one of the residents close by explained that the parking area on the main road was for public parking and not tied to the cottages on that aspect, this was good to know.

  • "Yanway Cottage was very quiet, with 2 pubs, post office and shop within walking distance."

    It was in an excellent location for walking the fells from the door. The parking space is very tight, only really suitable for a small car which was not mentioned until after booking (Lucky our car is small). The heating didn't seem to work, so it's good having the woodburning stove, although only 2 logs and a few sticks provided. The water was supposed to be on timer, again it never seemed hot when you needed it. There is also some need of remedial works, windows which don't close, broken pane of glass. The property would be exceptional if not for these few niggles. As the location is excellent.

  • "Really lovely stay and we loved Yanway Cottage."

    Definitely would return. We had an issue re lack of light bulbs but this got addressed very quickly. Very impressed. My only criticism is lack of cupboard space for food. We ended up with our supplies on the kitchen table, to be fair, it didn’t bother us, but it would have been nice to have been able to put them away. Also lack of hot water, it said it was on a timer but not sure it was. However, we put the immersion on when needed so again not a big issue. But might bother some. Overall we LOVED it and are planning on when we can return. Thank you so much x

  • "Directions to get to the cottage were rubbish and after a 9 and half hour drive to get there, the last thing I wanted to do is drive around in circles."

    Parking situation is completely inaccurate, unless you have a two seater city car then you won't fit on the so called driveway (court yard) even then there is a pinch point between neighbouring house and garden wall. The TV signal weak and TV would go blank and state TV signal is weak, we reported this heart of the lakes as it caused much upset for our little one. I think this could be resolved if foliage when removed from the electric cables. Bathroom: the sealant has gone on the bathtub, again reported as I don't want this to become an issue for the owner with leaking ceilings. The ceiling is pealing away like there is wall paper on it, this is not helped by the fact there is no fan, there is also no water pressure for shower. Windows were painted shut, this is a big bug bare for me incase of a fire risk. Storage heaters I've never used before, when we arrived it was a little chilly and no hot water, even though the setting was on timed. We turned on the storage heaters hopefully to take the chill off and spent the next 4 days dying of heat (and not being able to open the windows made it really uncomfortable during the night). Key missing for the shed, which stores the seating cushions for the garden, however even if it had cushions the chairs where unsafe to use as they were rusted through, reported to heart of the lakes. No direction as to where the wood for the fireplace is, I found it on the last day and put a log in the fire and filled up the basket for the next person. The doors are sticking on ceiling causing damage to the property, and the carpet. No curtains in bedrooms just blinds, which made it too light in the mornings. No views unless you go outside, you are overlooked by neighbours both front and back. People renting next door spent one evening just walking around their garden looking in at us constantly. Very well equipped kitchen however not a single cupboard space for food. The shelf falling off the wall in the kitchen, which has the toaster on. Ok now the good bits. Good for location to Windermere and bowness, Ambleside even Keswick easy to get to. Leave the property and there are amazing views. Very quiet location Very well equipped kitchen Beds were quite comfortable.

  • "Lovely property, clean, tidy and excellent location."

    The mortal man pub is very handy. The cottage is advertised as dog friendly - as we arrived late on the Saturday it wasn’t until the Sunday night that we read in the welcome pack dogs are not allowed on the sofa or the bed. This would have been helpful to know in the original booking details as I cannot un train a dog immediately, and also found out too late. If I had known this, we probably would not have booked.

    thank you for your valuable feedback Sophie-Maria. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our cottage and I will ask the agent to look at their booking confirmations so that people are aware of the pet policy as recorded in the welcome pack Property Owner
