Lakeside staycation

By Marion F on 17-Aug-2021

Arrived to a spotless cottage, which was cosy, well equipped and as described, slight problem with access but a quick phone call to owners and back up plan was in place to avoid any delay to entry, great communication with owners from booking to departing. Location made access to beautiful walks easy, took part in paddle boarding and kyaking at Bowness on Windermere, also gorge scrambling at Coniston, two really good fun days out. We all had a great staycation, thank you.

We would go back.

By Paul on 17-Feb-2020

The kitchen was well fitted out, cooker, microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine and dryer, dishwasher - home from home. The heating was good and we never felt cold despite the weather being terrible. The lounge was a good size with a cosy feel and big enough for the 5 of us and the dog. It was equipped with a wood burner (not used) and had sky tv and dvd player. The beds were very comfortable, one ensuite and a family bathroom. Water was hot. Wifi in the house was good but mobile reception was very poor. The communication from the hosts was excellent and there was plenty of literature and online information about the area and things to do. Disliked · Nothing to dislike
