enjoyed every minute great location 3 generations plus our dog all had a fabulous break lovely warm comfortable house everything we needed thank you
Lovely house with lots of space. Great location and excellent communication with the owner. Would definitely go back.
Great location but rather shabby
The property was in a great location to walk to the lake. Nice views to the left of the house and large garden. The beds very very comfy and all clean. Unfortunately though the property was very shabby and was not too clean inside. All the windows need a desperate luck of paint . We had to wash plates and glasses before we used them and the ovens were filthy . There was a broken glass in the cupboard that had not been removed . It would have been nice if a few logs were provided as a starter. The black chandelier was grey bit black due to the dust . The property was great for dogs. Overall really not worth the money unfortunately.
Thanks for your comments Deb. i will certainly be having a word with the cleaner about this as this is simply not good enough. These things should be checked before guests arrive,
The windows do get painted every few years but from the outside in particular they do get rather weathered due to the Lakes Climate.
We do appreciate the feedback so we can make things even better for all guests
Beautiful house in a magnificent setting.
We stayed here over the weekend with family and friends and found the house had everything we needed. The gardens were sensational- would definitely recommend for anyone to stay here
Many thanks Julie and we look forward to seeing you again in the future. So glad you enjoyed it.
My family and I stayed in this house for the weekend and it was absolutely fantastic. The house is beautiful and really well equipped. Everything we needed was there ready for us. We had two babies and two toddlers with us and the travel cots and a stair gate were also supplied. The garden is really lovely with a fabulous view and the house itself is in a great location. I would definitely recommend this house to everyone.
Thanks Clare. We are delighted that you found the house and location to be 5 star and we appreciate your feedback. We work hard to keep the house in pristine order. Thank you.
