What our customers are saying about our School Holiday Cottages In The Lake District To Rent.

Alan - verified booking

"Yew Trees is in an excellent location allowing you to walk into Winderemere and Bowness or enjoy country walks from the door. The property has a great layout with very comfortable settees and comfortable beds and an excellent on-suite shower room although I cannot say the same about the over bath shower. Thank you for the bottle of fizz which was so good I went and bought another bottle. During our stay there was a short power cut in the evening and when we went to look for the torch we found it was missing. Also found that the knives in the kitchen were so bad that they were almost dangerous to us when attempting to cut an onion. I noted in the visitors book that someone had mentioned this back in April. The equipment and layout of the kitchen was excellent but extractor fan could do with cleaning/replacing. I found that the front on the top left drawer on the chest of drawers in the twin room pulled off because it hadn't been glued on. I also noted that the light when entering the basement/Garage area was very poor at illuminating the room an as this is down a couple of steps I would suggest that it is replaced with a different bulb. On entering the property at the front door we noted that there were no coat hooks in the hallway but there were some useful seats available to sit and pull footwear on. This is a good property in an excellent location which could be made great with a few tweaks such as loosing the piano and replacing it with a bookcase or other useful piece of furniture. I would also consider turning the bathroom into another shower room but I realise some visitors particularly those the children may want a bath. The exterior of the property and grounds could do with some TLC which would also make it more attractive and safe to use. It may also encourage visitors to use the rear door into the basement/garage to bring in muddy/wet equipment where I noted there were door hooks and drying racks. On another note I would recommend the Prince of India in Winderemere if you are looking a takeaway."

"This is a very good property due to its location being in a private area midway between Windermere and Bowness making it easy to walk to either. The property is spacious with just the right amount of equipment and not a lot of clutter. However the property could be excellent with a few tweaks. The outside of the property has recently been painted and some of the paving re-grouted but there are still some lose pavers and the picnic bench needs refurbishment as it detracts from the exterior of the property. I found that rain water was spilling out over the gutter at the front door and this was due to debris at the bottom of the drain spout which was being held in place by the drain cover. Would suggest that the drain spout should be cut back 1/2 to 1 inch to allow the debris to wash out. Some shrubs at the rear are too close to the property causing the guttering to block and overflow and the subsequent waterfall being heard from the bedrooms which is unfortunate at night. The hallway is spacious with chairs and a table but could benefit from coat hooks on the wall to the right of the door instead of having to drape them over chairs. The bedrooms are very comfortable with plenty of storage space and loads of coat hangers. However the bedrooms are let down by poor curtains and curtain rails with end stops missing which means if you pull the curtains open too far they come off the track. The bathroom and on suite are excellent but both could benefit from having spare toilet roll holders to prevent space loo roll sitting on top of the toilet and possibly falling into the toilet. The fabric blind and light shade in the on suite have both become covered in mould. As there is an opaque window they could just remove the blind. The kitchen could do with a few hooks to put a towel and tea towel on."

"Great place to stay, would happily go back. Location is brilliant, 15 mins into Keswick, 20/25 mins from Ambleside. As a photographer I was 15 mins from Derwent water, 15 mins from Ullswater, 15 mins from Thrilwater etc.. Couldn’t have been better. Cottage was really cosy, really nice decor showing the old building while still being modern. It has everything you need for self-catering, all you need to bring is food. Towels, hairdryer, dishwasher (plus tablets) salt, pepper, every cooking tool needed, bin bags and loads more. Judith and Mike were great hosts, they will go out of their way to help you, all you need to do is ask. They did with me in order to get some red squirrel photos. (you will see red squirrels while here) Very dog friendly, they have a new wood which is fenced in to take the dog out to the toilet, this saves the back gardens from getting messy and is encouraged to use. The garden is lovely but you do have to go outside the front door to get to it. Games room is great, ping pong, pool/snooker and fussball. Even provide board games, cards etc… You can also walk around the farm to see the animals, you will meet the 3 dogs pretty quickly as they roam around, the donkeys will come and say hi and love an eye rub. Tips: Wifi is good enough to stream from Netflix, so bring a laptop/phone cable to hook into the tv (hdmi). Bring a torch for those late night dog toilet trips as it’s very dark outside. (although there is a little one in the drawer if you want to use that)"

"Nice cottage in a fantastic location in the lake district located between the supermarkets of Penrith and the lovely cafes and restaurants in the quaint town of Keswick. Only 10 mins from the motorway junction but the property feels very isolated (a good thing). The lakes of Ullswater and Derwent water are 15 mins drive and offer fantastic walks in the mountains. The cottage itself is well stocked and clean. The living area is upstairs and the bedrooms/bathroom downstairs. With a small private garden with fabulous views too. The cottage has a lot of character with wooden beams and part exposed brickwork. Some of the furniture and the bathroom are a little dated but not a major issue. Nice powerful shower. The kitchen is new, well equipped and crockery very clean. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Home made jam and scones on arrival. Very dog friendly with a medium sized bed, towels and bowls supplied. Plus a dedicated dog woodland for them to run around. It's small but still a great feature. Would recommend for a small family looking to escape in the lakes."

"Whilst we enjoyed our holiday we think that with a few improvements to the cottage, it could be great and well worth the 4 stars it portrays to be. Firstly we noticed the floors were still wet from where the floors had been cleaned but nothing else seemed to have been. From the amount of cobwebs and spiders around the house, we presume it hadn't been dusted for sometime and had to clear these ourselves. We noticed light bulbs weren't working - perhaps these should be checked at change over. The double bed is very small and the pillows very uncomfortable. We ended up sleeping in the twin which wouldn't have been our first choice for sleeping arrangements. A guide to some local walks wouldnt go a miss as although braithwaite is only a 20 minute walk away, it is through a forest which has some tricky paths and not really suitable to walking in darkness. (Say after dinner from the pub) That said the kitchen and living room are very nice and well equipped."
