"This is our second stay in this property in two years. The location is fantastic giving solitude, relaxation and unrivalled views. Overall the barn conversion has been completed to as very high standard and the facilities such as the kitchen and bathrooms are modern and very well presented. However, small details have made this stay less pleasurable than our previous one. In particular, cleaning in some areas could be improved. There are large numbers of spider webs in the rafters of the living room and other areas which are full of dead flies. These were present in our last stay and do not appear to have been removed since last time and are now larger. (Other guests commented on this in the visitor book.) The living room, stairs and main bedroom had not been properly vacuumed before our arrival. There were lots of crumbs in the living room by the sofa, dead flies on the stairs and flies and dust/fluff on the carpet in the bedroom. (The visitor book confirmed that the house had been occupied not long before our arrival so the property had not been empty for an extended period.) Other bedrooms were cleaner than the main bedroom. We vacuumed these areas ourselves after arriving. This only took a few minutes, but this should not be something that guests should feel the need to have to do. Some light bulbs in the living area were either blown or missing and a couple of the lamps did not appear to be working. Also, there were no dishwasher tablets and very little washing up liquid. Whilst we appreciate that the owners are not responsible for providing all cleaning equipment, if a dishwasher is provided it is our experience in other rental properties that at least enough tablets are normally provided for a couple of days until a trip to the local supermarket can be made. Finally, there was a musty smell in the main bedroom which got worse when it rained. Water also dripped through the ceiling above the French doors during heavy rain. This is an exceptional property in a unique setting. A lot of care and thought has gone in to the conversion, with high standards of workmanship evident. Good information is provided by the owners, access is good and the local area has lots to offer. It is a real shame that what could be a memorable vacation rental has been slightly tarnished by details which, in the main, would not require a huge amount of time or money to rectify."

"This is a marmite cottage; you will love it or hate it.The drive through the 2 fields full of sheep and under the railway viaduct is beautiful as is arriving at the cottage. However, we found the significant number of large flies exceedingly unpleasant in the kitchen and the downstairs bathroom. Cooking was horrible as even more appeared. We were told it was because of the weather but if hosts of flies are not your thing I wouldn't risk it in the summer. We tried all manner of solutions to get rid of them which was unpleasant and stressful but always by the next morning there were as many again. If you do go remember to take extra tea towels for this was one of the many places the flies kept returning to. Also, dishwasher tablets as none were provided.All the beds we tried were very uncomfortable as stated in other reviews. We have been told as a result they have purchased toppers but this is too late for us. We found the settee uncomfortable too. As noted in other reviews upstairs is generally tired.The floors and stairs ( on both floors) are uneven which may be difficult for some people.The 'tumbling wier' is so loud you only know a train is going by if you see it for the water blocks all their noise out! You even hear the wier inside with all the doors and windows shut. Many consider the wier peaceful but for those with hearing issues, ASD or other disabilities it could ruin your stay.Due to the flies and sore backs we left early which was such a disappointment as this was our annual holiday."

"What a fantastic cottage! We had the best time staying in S75658 and didn't want to leave. The village was quiet and such a friendly community - we were there for Halloween and our daughter enjoyed handing out sweets to the locals who came around (we put a carved pumpkin outside so they knew they could come knocking) and then went to a few houses who were very welcoming and friendly. The local walking is great and its not far from Lacy's caves, which we were very excited to find were accessible again after previously being closed due to flooding. Local shop (driving distance) in the next village of Langwathby was great, and Penrith nearby has Morrisons, Aldi, Sainsbury's etc. so plenty of options available! There is also a lovely looking cafe a short walk from the house, but unfortunately we were so busy out walking the lakes every day that we didn't get a chance to go and check it out. As with all areas of the lake district, it involves driving...but that is expected anywhere you stay. But as far as the cottage is concerned, it is an exceptionally well equipped cottage which absolutely everything you could need. The hosts are great and were around if we had any questions as they live nearby. The icing on the cake was being able to stay in such a lovely property, relaxing by the fire at the end of the day with the dogs snoring away at our feet. Our week staying at S75658 was fantastic and we cannot wait to go again!"

"eynesbury/retired coupleThe location is truly outstanding and the perfect get away from it all holiday retreat, everything we had hoped for and more. Given the location we did not expect amenities to be close by, so low score should be ignored. The drive through a gate and two fields to get to the cottage dodging obstinate sheep was not expected and we’ve had other, lower, cars in the past which would not have made it without damage underneath.The description in the brochure actually understated the cottages attraction but it would have been helpful to know about the inside steps upstairs and downstairs which are irregular and tricky to negotiate. We also agree with others comments that it would be better if the upstairs bathroom had a full shower. The one major negative is the overall lack of comfort, the settee’s but especially the beds. These are without doubt the hardest and most uncomfortable beds we have ever slept on after one night we both had serious pains in backs, hips and knees after a sleepless night. It was only a trip to Dunelm to purchase a couple memory foam toppers which saved the holiday and prevented an early trip home. Having said all that we would come back again, armed with fly fishing rods, a more effective method of killing flies and of course and the toppers!"

"I think there is little point doing reviews unless they are honest.The upstairs and kitchen of S75658 are fine, but the lounge and ‘sun room’ are drab and depressing.The garden is perfect for dogs, but the parking leaves a lot to be desired, as the farmer who keeps his equipment next door is in and out with heavy equipment from early morning.There is not a shop in the village ( not unusual ) but there not being a welcome pack of basics was. We visit several cottages each year and have never been to one that didn’t provide at least bread, milk and usually a bottle of wine. So go prepared. That said the shop in the next village is wonderful and living in a Peak District Village ourselves I thought it was a wonderful facility. There is building work taking place locally even Saturday and Sunday but the company we rented from just said it didn’t bother the owners! Unfortunately , it bothered us as we are used to peace and quiet. We visited most of the Lakes which was the purpose of the visit. The cottage is described as detached but it seems to be attached to the farm buildings behind."
