Myself and my friends stayed at the cottage for a night and we had a great time. Everything about the cottage is good and we felt really at home. Would have been great if the bathroom was a little bigger though. I would stay here again if I get a chance!
Not as described
Disappointing. The property was not as described and so many snags that we were surprised how anyone could have a comfortable stay.
Floors were wood throughout, which looks smart. However, the floors in the lounge, bedroom and bathroom were warped. So much so that the bedroom door could not be opened fully, and if shut it was difficult to open at all. Definitely a fire hazard. The single bedroom was accessible only from outside the main property, from the courtyard garden. Certainly not as described in on the website, and hence my elderly mother had to sleep in the main bedroom while my wife and I slept in the lounge on the futon. The bathroom was disaster -- the ceiling height in the bath area was 4foot 11 inches! There was no way to have a shower, and when I rang the property manager/owner I was told I could shower while sitting in the bath!! The kitchen did not have worktops, just appliances placed on low cupboards, and a table.
All the switches for the lights throughout the property were on a single board in the hall; no way to turn on or turn off any light from individual rooms. Certainly unexpected arrangement. And no curtains anywhere, just venetian blinds and roller blinds. The only thing which was decent was the central heating.
And pretty expensive too. Do not waste your money, even if you are desperate for a place to stay. We tried to get some rooms at nearby hotels but could not find anything suitable.
Do not waste your money.
Not a nice premises to live in even for short time
Flat with no window, cannot breath, bathroomn is 3 feet high, no towels provided. a room in the back of house is not for people to live- spider everywhere.
You needed to request towels as stated on the website when you booked.
There is an image of the bathroom on the website.
The location of the single bedroom adjoins the house as stated on the website
The property is in the countryside therefore there is the possibility an insect comes inside.
Stayed there for 3 nights with my family. Overall, the experience was good. The owner was responsive to calls and provided with all necessary guidelines and support. The accommodation itself is average. The bedroom and living room are nice, kitchen is fully equipped, but then I assume the room wasn't initially built as a kitchen since the cookers are mobile. The only concerns I encountered were the bathroom, which is built under the stairs, and the extra single bedroom in the garden. The ceiling in the bathroom was pretty low, thus it is impossible to stand straight in 2/3 of the bathroom. The extra bedroom has a gas/water heating machine (I assume) installed right in it, and appeared to be an improvised bedroom as it wasn't initially built as a bedroom.
Despite these concerns, they merely affected my stay as I spent most of my time travelling around Lake District.
