Lovely sized house just needs looking after better
Overall this is a great sized property for the recommended number of people and we would be willing to stay again, more so if the issues are fixed. Good points include the upstairs bathroom being a great size with a gorgeous bath and shower, location is great close to nice pubs and amazing walks, the garden is a great size and well enclosed for dogs, the kitchen is well equipped for cooking and has a good sized fridge/freezer and oven. The sofas and beds are a little tired but really comfy and more than fine for the purpose.
There are some negatives though and points that need fixing. The washing machine wasn't working, it didn't appear to have a hot water supply and hence we were left with cold wet dirty washing. The clothes airer provided is broken with plastic parts snapped, we were unsure as to why this was left in the property, luckily we had brought our own. A few of the bulbs in the lamps were not working, these just need to be checked and replaced. No fuel was provided for the fire despite this being advertised on the listing and there was some newspaper filled with ashes at the side uncleaned.
Frustratingly a lot of the doors won't close properly as the latches are either not there at all or don't work. This can make it difficult stopping dogs/ children leaving certain rooms. There is no starter pack provided so you have to crawl on the floor get to the wifi password and figure things out like laundry and bins for yourself. There was not enough hand soap and toilet rolls in the property so we had to buy more of our own. Only 3 hand towels were provided despite there being 7 of us in the house.
The seal around the downstairs shower needs replacing as now the water spills out if the shower head is pointed towards the shower screen. The kitchen needs much better cleaning in the future, there was an open packet of something on top of the fridge, many of the insides of the cupboards were messy and greasy, and the floor was black when you wiped it with a damp piece of kitchen paper.
The house has a 'Tardis' feel to it.As you enter the house you are greeted with a huge hall and very impressive staircase.All four bedrooms were superb and the bathroom was beautiful.Lounge ,snug,and dining room were very roomy with everything needed for cosy nights in.Kitchen was wonderful with everything to hand.Dog friendly garden was a bonus much appreciated by Elvis,the Cocker.Village amenities were sufficient for our stay with a beautiful snooker room upstairs at the pub.Thoroughly recommend the Navigation pub in the next village of Buxworth for real ale and super food.Well worth a little drive out.
Photographs do not do this property justice
Excellent property, had a wonderful weekend stay, felt like a home from home with all amenities, very comfortable, beautiful home. We took far too much food, there is Londis shop next door but one which sold everything we needed. Beautiful location and a wonderful property, highly recommend
This was our second time at Lower Lane House, it is large, comfortable and a relaxing place to stay. An excellent base from which to explore the Peak District.
Lovely house but needs attention to detail
Used the house as a base for a walking weekend with friends. Perfectly located for the our needs and the house was very warm and comfortable.
A great shame that it was let down but the finer details- examples - only 7 towels and should have been 8 - 1 per head, no remote for the DVD player, no soap or hand towels in the toilets - just little things that can be easily rectified with a little attention.
