Special place for all of us! 5 of 5 August 2017

By Rosemary H on 18-Jan-2018

Special place for all of us! 5 of 5 We had a lovely week at Lakefield House and Cottage. The three generations all enjoyed being together, as we are normally scattered around Britain. The property is nice and roomy with extra sitting and kitchen areas. Granny and Grandad, Mums and Dads, teenagers and "littlees" all fitted in perfectly. Our dog was happy too, in the side porch, just through the door from the master bedroom. House, cottage and gardens were as described and well maintained. We met the gardener when he came to cut the grass! The bathrooms and shower rooms are excellent, and the extra fridges very useful. We had an interesting trip to Levens Hall. Also enjoyed all the Beatrix Potter related sites and galleries. My Highlight was probably afternoon tea in the Apple Pie tea-rooms in Ambleside! The more energetic members of the family, and the dog, climbed a lot of hills! Review Submitted: 24-Aug-2017 Date of Stay: August 2017

Exceeded expectation 4 of 5 March 2017

Exceeded expectation 4 of 5 A beautiful home. I can highly recommend this property for a wonderful holiday. The house is spacious and comfortable. Slept really well from day one Loved the number of bathrooms. Loved the 1st floor which is really a flat in itself. Plenty of space for privacy The main lounge is comfortable with plenty of room for everyone. Words can't really express the view. You look at the photos but the real thing is WOW Well equipped kitchen but be aware no condiments herbs or spices. You need to bring your own if self catering. The location is brilliant. Nice and quiet with lovely walks and a children's playground just a couple of minutes away. Of course the Beatrix potter museum is also only a few minutes walk away. Unfortunately closed when we stayed and would probably make the area a lot busier in summer . Within easy driving distance of ambleside and Windermere and we had a lovely day at coniston. Loads to do. I could go on. Loads of board games and DVD s at the house and the table tennis. We used the Tesco delivery which was very good. Also the milkman delivers all sorts. Full details are given in the helpful booklets around the house. The pubs in hawkshead will do take outs if you don't want to eat out or cook. The co-op is also very good. All in all had a great stay and hope to return one day. Thank you for taking the extra trouble to get our left items to us. Much appreciated.

Spacious and well equipped in a beautiful spot 5 of 5

By Sarah N on 18-Jan-2018

Spacious and well equipped in a beautiful spot 5 of 5 We had a great stay at Lakefield. There was plenty of space and bathrooms for everyone to have their privacy and the large kitchen/dining area and lounge easily accommodated us all, usually around a toasty log fire! The location was great for walks and there were lovely views from the house. A great stay, thank you! Review Submitted: 19-Jan-2017 Date of Stay: January 2017
