What our customers are saying about our Large Cottages In The Lake District To Rent.
Gavin - verified booking
"Very nice maisonette apartment. Ideal central base for our walks up The Old Man of Coniston, the Fairfield Horseshoe and Wansfell Pike. Slightly confused by the lack of hot water initially until following a quick phone call, we established that it wasn't a combination boiler and we had to wait 30 mins for the water to heat-up (having set the water to continuous).There were four of us in the accommodation, and there was plenty of room, although the galley style kitchen would get cramped with more than one person involved in cooking.It was particularly warm in June, and as a result we had the bedroom windows open of an evening. However being a town centre location meant that there was significant traffic noise.The loo in the triple room en-suite didn't always flush. With experience we realised it took significant time for the cistern to fill sufficiently. And the instructions for the Ambleside FC car park were a bit vague, resulting in two parking tickets for the weekend (£25 if paid within 14 days). For reference, on reaching the Miller Road car park, look for an unmade/unpaved track on the right, through an open gate upon which there is a sign that says 'Ambleside FC campsite'. We think that is where we should have parked. Other than that an ideal location to explore the area."

"This cottage expanded on three sides provided excellent accommodation for our whole family but as has been previously suggested by previous guests the addition of a shower over the bath upstairs would be a great improvement. Seven trying to share one shower was less than ideal! The huge kitchen dining area was great and the kitchen area extremely well equipped with a great double oven, a large fridge and a dishwasher. The original kitchen near the front door that is now a games room was a huge attraction for our grandchildren equipped with a football table, Nintendo GameCube with a range of games and many other jigsaws, games etc. The cottage location near the top of the hill just 50 yards from a footpath up onto the fells leading to a superb viewing point over Lake Windermere was a plus for us, even though walking down into Bowness (or rather back up from Bowness) was challenging for those of us not as young as we used to be!"

"The owners have clearly spent a lot of time and money renovating the cottages but it does feel like they would now benefit from some maintenance. The exterior is starting to look rather tatty and internally it feels like a really thorough clean up or re-decoration would help. The cottage was generally clean but not to the standard we have experienced at other cottagesWe also had a few other issues: The seal on the dishwasher door fell off, so every time we used the dishwasher we had to refit the seal. Storm Ali arrived while we were there and a roof tile came off, I'm sure that the cleaners will have noticed this.The central heating instructions are not clear at all, if the weather had been cold we would have frozenHad real problems with the wood burner, not sure whether this was down to the logs that were left or a maintenance issue. Given our problems with the heating this could have been a problem"

"In desperate need of blackouts! Children wake up at the crack of dawn in summer months... 4:45am!Two bathrooms but ONLY ONE SHOWER, so a bit tricky if everyone wants to shower. Without a proper gate it is not really suitable for small children or dogs. We got quite a fright when one of our dogs went roaming around without us noticing. We could not keep the kitchen closed all the time because it was very hot inside the house. Cleanliness could have been better. Dusty carpets, dust behind bedside tables and under washbasin in the bathroom, for example. Very well equipped kitchen. Very comfortable for two families sharing. Downstairs has its own private area for bedrooms and one bathroom. Everyone complained about the mattresses. The beds were too soft so those with back problems will end up sore!"

"I was disappointed to discover that towels, bed linen and electricity had to be paid for in addition to the rent. This masked a rather higher than I wanted to pay rent. The cottage is beautiful but very cold. The storage heaters didn't keep the place warm all evening and we used a lot of electricity running the fan heaters to keep warm. The Aga, though beautiful, was not very hot and we were unable to use it for cooking so had to use the electric cooker, again putting our bill up. Hot water was also a problem. With such a big cottage it needs a better solution as getting everyone bathed/showed took a long time as we were waiting for the emersion heater. Perhaps it would be a better option in summer than in winter."
