RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Great location, poor service
The accommodation in the house was excellent, as was the location. However, we were disappointed with the lack of welcome as there was no-one on-site for nearly a week. Without a welcome you can't rectify issues immediately. The shower in the Annex did not work - easily rectified by resetting a electricity breaker if shown where - and the oven did not work and had to replaced later in the week. The sink in the kitchen was blocked and smelled quite unpleasant. There was really no sense of any "personal touch" as you are one of at least 20 cottages within the same rental company. Given the Lake District's weather some covered seating outside, even a simple parasol/umbrella, would be a useful addition to the rental.
