    "Loved the location of S24438; 10 mins drive from Bowness yet quiet & peaceful retreat. It is part of a courtyard of 3 cottages basically in the middle of a field; there are a few caravans nearby & some walkers went past the window. S24438 on the whole had everything we needed. We travelled with my 8 month old; a high chair was provided however it seemed dated & the straps were filthy, didn’t find it the easiest to use and not a lot of space around the table & tv in the way when this was up. A travel cot was also provided but didn’t use this as we took our own. Only space for travel cot was in the main bedroom near the big east-facing window with very thin curtains so be aware you will be sleeping together & likely wake early in summer (my little one sleeps in his own room). This combined with the bed being so uncomfortable did result in some disturbed nights & early wake ups due to the room flooding with light. I would recommend taking a blackout blind if travelling with a little one. My son was not mobile at the time & although the living room floor had ‘playing space’, I think it could be a challenge with more mobile infants (with eg low lamps, low tv & cables & cupboards they could pull at). The kitchen was well equipped but we found the fridge very small (particularly as we store baby bottles). The shared washing facilities (machine & dryer) were handy. The bath was on the small side & water is yellow (I assume due to natural spring) but little one didn’t seem to mind. The entrance to S24438 could do with being signposted, as it’s not easy to find in the dark & because you approach it from the back. The bed mattresses could do with replacing as they were lumpy & warped and the sofa was very uncomfortable (different to the one that was in pics online). There is parking directly outside with enough space for a couple of cars if needed."

    "This is a beautiful cottage in a lovely setting above Ullswater. The location is very quiet with easy access to the mountains and many of the Lakeland attractions.The cottage is an unusual layout, with the lounge and kitchen on ground level then two bedrooms and bathroom in the basement. Also on this level is a lovely conservatory area that looks out over the garden. On the first floor is what was the loft but has now been converted into a small bedroom. This one is ideal for the children due to low ceilings, particularly above the beds.The place is well appointed, though rather eclectic.There are information leaflets in the lounge along with a folder containing information about the house and surrounding area. Sadly this folder is rather messy with things crossed out and written in above etc. The folder also says that there is a guest house at the end of the lane that has a licence and acts as a bar. This is not the case. we went in there only to be told that the owner was unaware of this information and could not serve us unless we were guests. The next nearest pub is about a five minute drive away.The cottage was fairly clean but clearly hadn't been done properly. There was hair in the bath, suggesting that it hadn't been cleaned and there are cobwebs in the bedrooms and lounge. A sarcastic note from the "oven fairy" asks guests to put oil in the bottom of the oven, perhaps the fairy should consider that the guests are generally different each time rather than tenants. I would stay here again as it's fine for my requirements."

    "There were a number of problems with S24438. There were two adjoining cottages but it was not obvious where the door for the second one was. It turned out that it was around the back but there was no sign to indicate this. The house was very cold and we were unable to work out how to reset the heating. There was a wood fire in the living room. Logs were provided but there was no kindling wood which meant we had to buy firelighters to get the fire lit.There were no places to hang up coats. We did eventually discover a small cupboard with a rail in it but it was full of junk.The bathroom had an insufficient number of bath towels for three people.The television did not work and could not pick up signals. The DVD player only worked using manual controls.The freezer compartment in the kitchen did not work and everything in it melted.There was no teatowel or refuge bags provided and the teapot dribbled.There was also a lot of noise from S24438 next door audible through the locked door linking the two properties"

    "A very well equipped cottage with everything you need. It’s on three levels when you include the upstairs bedroom and is very roomy. The conservatory downstairs is great to relax in after a day out on the fells! The upstairs bedroom is in the apex of the roofline, so put the shortest people there so that you don’t have complaints of bruised foreheads! Local eateries include the Brackenrigg Inn which is only around a mile or two away (have their venison burger if available), the Pooley Bridge Inn and the Sun Inn (also at Pooley Bridge). If you’re desperate then the Crown at Pooley Bridge is ok, but a bit down-market for my tastes. S18648 is a great location to access Ullswater and the surrounding fells. Glenridding is a short drive away and is an ideal starting point for the walk to Helvellyn via Striding Edge (well recommended, but wait for fine weather). I would certainly stay at S18648 again. June 2011. "

    "We stopped in the bothy fora week over Christmas. Unfortunately the day before people broke up from work for Christmas the boiler broke down, leaving us with no hot water or heating. Thanks to the owners acting swiftly, they had an engineer there that evening. He had to return the next morning after exhausting efforts to get it working, with a new part . This didn't work either. I would like to thank him for his dedication in traveling to Carlisle for another part and missing his xmas works do . Success at last . Due to his kindness we really enjoyed the bothy and surrounding area. Lovely warm place and very peaceful. Managed to get three days walking in a beautiful location. Just two minor snags are parking is tight if u have two vehicles and not having wifi for kids in the evening and for planning purposes became a niggle . All the same we would visit again."
