"We booked Rickerby House to treat our family to a holiday. The location of Portinscale is fantastic and the local amenities are fabulous. The house itself has brilliant parking capacity and looks impressive from the outside but that's as good as our experience got.The rooms are spacious and it has some lovely period features. Most of the beds were comfortable. The owners have obviously spent a lot on fittings (sinks, taps, log burning stove etc) but have not maintained or given the property a deep clean for many years.The furniture looks like it's from a student bedsit. Old, dirty and literally coming apart. (I have photos unfortunately not able to attach them here-will send by email)The floor had been laid on top of a previous floor, so the creaking noise was unbearable. Especially when you have little ones to put to bed.One of the rooms with a king-size bed has a door that does not shut. We had to keep it shut with a bin or handbag. Isn't ideal when there's many people in the house. Windows don't stay open as the cords have been cut. We were fortunate to have lovely weather but roasted inside the house. We ended up propping up one window with a coaster for some air. The same window had a nail sticking out of the blind pull chord so I was injured from that. ( have a photo)Wardrobes in master bedroom don't shut and again we had to prop it closed using cardboard. The tap in the main bathroom woke everyone up a couple of mornings as it produced a high pitched screech. (Again I have evidence but unable to attach)The general standard of cleanliness was unacceptable. The rug was full of grey fluff and balls of hair which caught on your feet. (Again I have a photo). We actually hoovered it ourselves daily but the hoover smelled and didn't pick anything up. The replacement 'plug' for the broken bath plug was covered in mould as was the bath mat, as was the washing machine and dryer. The walls are damp and peeling in places. Someone seems to have painted halfway up the walls and stopped when they can't reach. Luckily the bed linen and towels were clean or we would have walked out. There is some nice artwork on the walls but the money would be better spent on a deep clean and maintenance. There seems to be no regular dusting or cleaning around the house in general though as the house was covered in dust. The kitchen table was full of crumbs and sticky. I really feel like this house was massively overpriced for the state it was in. Also unsure of why we needed to pay a damage deposit as there's not much in there to damage. A hostel would be cleaner. Very disappointed because this could be a stunning house with a little bit of care. We were all glad to get home.There was no comment book in the house so I do wonder how long these issues have been left unattended to. The caretakers number was in the kitchen but we didn't go on holiday to wait in all day for someone to fix someone else's house. Also the amount of issues would be impossible to fix in one day.Such a shame as it could be perfect if someone actually showed the house some care."

"Stayed in Threlkheld before so I knew what to expect. There are 2 pubs. The horse and farrier do excellent food and you can take your dogs in. But it’s very popular so you need to call in advance. The accommodation is very basic, but it has everything you need for your stay. There was even complimentary tea, coffee and milk. Along with washing up liquid etc... the owners kindly let us take a second dog but you need to enquire before you book. Our dogs are fairly small so would be different if you had large dogs. The building itself is very old and the floors and walls are uneven. This added to the overall experience and even though on the main through road it was very quiet. My only niggle was that the windows are old and not very draft proof. This was fairly uncomfortable sitting in the living room. We counter acted this by having the log fire on. There are fantastic views of Blencathra from the landing window and some good walks from Threlkeld. Overall, I’d be happy to return here as it is a great base to explore the lakes - but ideally, you do need a car as there are no shops. Keswick being the closest approximately 4 miles away."

"We throughly enjoyed our stay here, the cottage is beautiful very very clean and spacious the settees are very comfortable. The beds not so the double bed i did feel like i was falling out and ached when i got up in the morning. saying that it didn't and hasn't put us off from returning would really like it more if they had new mattresses.The people who own it and are attached to the cottage are very very nice, there was a beautiful lemon homemade cake plus fudge and a vase of flowers, which was a lovely and pleasant surprise.Our dogs enjoyed the paddock opposite and had a great run about. When we left i unfortunately left behind a number of items and the Lady met my husband in a service station that same night to hand over my belongings..I was really impressed with that and i cant thank them enough"

"Lovely very rural cottage we had 10 staying, 3 generations. Walks from the cottage aren’t ideal with children, so we drove out to most places. Kitchen and lounge space was ideal for a large party, kitchen could do with a double oven as cooking Christmas for 10 was a challenge . Family room was a good size but the two doubles/twin were quite small and limited storage in the double room (no wardrobe) The views are lovely especially early morning from the garden room. Bathrooms were furnished very well, our only problem was lack of hot water (have to turn pressure right down to keep it warm and space out when everyone was showering or bathing the children)"

"This was everything and more we could have hoped for. 'Cute' and 'cosy' are two words that immediately spring to mind in describing Gates Bridge, but that implies a home that's lacking in size or stature, and neither is true: this cottage has great character, charm and heart. The two of us, and our little terrier, were superbly catered for, by the cottage and indeed the village of Caldbeck, an idyllic hamlet with everything you need on your doorstep (pub, cafes, shops) and the perfect starting point for a wider exploration of The Lakes. You have to be very hard to please to give Gates Bridge Cottage anything less than a 9/10. We loved it."
