Corrine's personal touches were above and beyond certainly a special time for Sean's 50th. The grounds and garden was spectacular. Lovely local walks and Good pubs. would highly recommend for those who love the countryside and a romantic break away

The kitchen was well equipped, sofas and beds very comfortable after a long walk, morning views over the mountains were amazing. Having a parking space across the road was very luxurious. We enjoyed the Xbox and dvd collection. We will recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to visit the Lakes and have the comfort of shops and pubs close by as well as the lake and fells just around the corner!

My daughter and I felt very comfortable in this very clean, beautiful,safe and well maintained Property. The ambiance was very warm and lovely. Customer service was 150% as this felt like home away from! The location was very strategic as we were close to the town centre that had beautiful shops, restaurants, museum, pubs etc. The Scenery was superb, had the square right in front of us with the beautiful flowers and the mountains were right around the skylines giving us breath taking views. The attraction for me was the friendly nature of shop owners, people we met on the ever busy roads (tourists and locals with their beautiful dogs in different colours and sizes) and of course the Asaya Thai restaurant with their very delicious dishes. We also met other housemates from different ethic backgrounds who were also very warm and friendly and this also added in making our stay at "The Gables" an experience of a life time. Like I said when I was leaving The Gables, "I shall be back"
