  • "We had a wonderful stay."

    The property is clearly very well cared for and much thought has gone into providing a delightful home from home. Thank you for taking that time and care. It meant a comfortable and relaxing base for our family holiday.

  • "Great property and position."

    We were 6 adults and there was plenty of space for all of us plus the dog. The games room is spot on, just a shame you have to go outside to get in but we were aware of that before we went and we still made good use the of the room. The property is a 10/15 walk uphill to Windermere and the same down hill to Bowness plus the bus stop being right outside was a big plus. Would definitely recommend and we would return. Thank you.

  • "The internet connection is poor, couldn't work on my laptop and couldn't use play back on the TV."

    Hadn't realised the games room was not accessible through the house, entry only from outside, which also meant the heating of the room was independent from the main house. You needed to plan to use the room and make sure it was warm before entry. Didn't have a key to access the seating area at the back but this didn't matter as it was too cold to sit outside. The property is lovely, well equipped but would benefit from a side table lamp somewhere in the lounge area. Also, the bedroom with the en-suite is very small, hardly any floor space and the sink in the en-suite is tiny, not big enough to clean your teeth in! After all said, we would book again because the location is perfect for us.

    We loved the layout and it has everything you need and the location is brilliant. The only slight downside was the cleanliness, eg there was a lot of dog hairs around but appreciate it is a dog friendly property. It wasn’t enough to put us off, we had a lovely stay.

  • "Loved the property."

    Loved the location. Very comfortable beds and sofas and high quality fixtures and fittings. Bathrooms exceptional. Everything we needed apart from one small item - the rack from the grill pan which made grilling food difficult. Felt the cleaning was not the best. The floor in the kitchen/lounge had not been cleaned and the windows were dirty with hand prints and dog prints. This did not distract from an amazing vacation but wanted to highlight this. Games room amazing.

  • "The property has been beautifully decorated and furnished throughout, to a very high standard."

    The kitchen has everything you could need, the living space is comfortable and vast and the bedrooms are all of a good size with stunning bathrooms. The added use of the games room and small section of outside space is a fantastic addition. The location itself is perfect - only a 10-15 min walk to both Bowness and Windermere - meaning you have a host of bars, restaurants, shops and activities on your doorstep. We couldn't have asked for more. The first drawback was that the clean before our arrival left a lot to be desired. The upstairs bathroom didn't look like it had been cleaned thoroughly at all, with a dirty cloth left on the shower floor. The upstairs bins had not been emptied and were full of the previous visitor's rubbish. The living space was generally clean, but the washing machine was dirty inside and the place needed a "spring clean" to wash down wooden skirting boards etc. I would hope that this was a one-off. However, the biggest issue we had was the heat. Whilst we appreciate that The Lake District is not known for 30 degree temperatures, there had been feedback in the guest book for the need for fans for the top two bedrooms which get VERY hot and two extremely small (4 inch) fans had been provided. This was simply not good enough. The property direction means you get sun on the front windows from about 11am and all day long and the heat became unbearable. In the end, we had to purchase our own more substantial fans - which was disappointing given how well appointed the house was for everything else. All in all, we wouldn't hesitate to stay again and had a fabulous holiday. Our only proviso would be that we bring our own fans next time!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear of the issues that you experienced with the cleanliness of the property. We will pass on your feedback to the cleaning team. We take your comments regarding the fans, on board. We hope that you would return again. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Loved Upper Sheriff's Place."

    Lots of space, lovely furnishings and lots of lovely little touches such as welcome hamper. Games room was fab. What really impressed us though was the service from Lakeland. We'd been booked into the downstairs property where, two days into our holiday, a pipe burst. I contacted the agency and within an hour they'd sent someone round to assess the situation. They honestly couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. That's why we ended up in the Upper Sheriff's apartment. And, of course, which we were delighted with. Full marks to Lakeland though for getting on top of the situation instantly and being so nice about it.

    The high spec and luxury made our stay just lovely. I have even ordered the bedding and a runner from the same company that you use. The games room was great for my son (19) and his friend. Also loved the welcome pack as did Oscar(yorkie). One of the best places I have ever rented and will be back soon. Highly recommend to anyone thinking of booking you will not be disappointed. Location is great also as you can walk 10mins either way to Bowness/Windermere and your own parking space. Bus stop right outside as well. But, I would recommend Windermere or Ambleside for restaurants as Bowness was full of pub chain restaurants that were not great (tried 2 and food below average). Thank you for a lovely stay.
