    “Granary nook was in a fantastic location with so many shops, cafes, bars etc near by.”

    Definitely a great base to explore the lakes. However I was very disappointed with the level of cleanliness throughout the cottage..... none of the furniture had been moved to ensure it was thoroughly clean and there was a thick layer of dust under sofas, beds, around edges of bathroom etc. My children were playing with toys that rolled under the sofa, when retrieved they were covered in dust. Also we found a pull out camp bed which we thought would be useful for our young child to sleep on, ...

    Definitely a great base to explore the lakes. However I was very disappointed with the level of cleanliness throughout the cottage..... none of the furniture had been moved to ensure it was thoroughly clean and there was a thick layer of dust under sofas, beds, around edges of bathroom etc. My children were playing with toys that rolled under the sofa, when retrieved they were covered in dust. Also we found a pull out camp bed which we thought would be useful for our young child to sleep on, but again once retrieved from under the bed where it had been stored it was covered in dust. Unfortunately my little girl has asthma, which is made worse by dust mites, and she was very affected by the dust in this property. Such a shame, as with a better standard of cleanliness this property would have been great. I would appreciate it if you could pass these comments onto the owner. Thanks
