Poorly maintained
Lovely area, and very well thought out cottage. We paid top price for a cottage for my 60th birthday, we have been to the lakes several times and love it there, so knew the location, and had a lovely time exploring the area, even climbing skiddaw in the rain. However the property, although beautifully modernised was disappointing in its maintenance. The skirting was off in the kitchen and just left lying on the floor, one of the kitchen base cupboards would not shut, the main oven didnt work at all, the fire didnt work and the dvd player was broken.2 of the window blinds were broken, as was the towel rail in the kitchen. The bath was lovely and deep, just right to soak my old bones in, but unfortunately the hot water only ran for a few seconds then turned tepid, so was unable to use the bath at all, by contrast the shower was very hot and I could not find a way of cooling it down. The outdoor seating area is not suitable for sitting out in, as its tiny, and the bins are there, the dustbins had also not been emptied when we got there and were overflowing. A lovely patio set is provided though, and stored in the brilliant utility room. We paid top price as it looked so modern and was in a great area, so it was very disappointing to have so many maintenance issues. We did contact the office mid week, and explain the issues, but whilst they were polite, nothing was done to try to help us. I mentioned the issues, and gave them a written list of the problems when I handed back the key, and I did notice someone going into the property as we were driving away. I received an email saying someone would be in touch with me, but as yet no one has.

Spacious, clean, and well furnished
Two friends and I stayed at Wrenville for a long weekend in the fells. We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived - the place is much larger than it appears in the photos, and there is ample space for storage of bikes/boots/backpacks etc., not to mention the large upstairs room with kitchen, dinning area and living room. Downstairs are two bedrooms, a bathroom and a utility room (complete with washing machine and tumble dryer). The bathroom is really great - heated floors, power shower and large bath. The beds are comfortable, although the road can be a little noisy. Bring ear plugs if you're a very light sleeper. The windows are double glazed, and the road gets quiet a night so it isn't too bad The upstairs is probably the highlight of the place - one very large and bright room with a large kitchen. The kitchen has all the equipment you'd need to cook, as well as some other things that come in handy (tin foil, washing up liquid, etc.) I'd really recommend staying here. The only complaint: no wifi! This is particularly a problem in Keswick where there is very very limited mobile phone data signal. If there was wifi, I'd say this place is perfect

very good accomodation
Just returned from a short stay at this property. The house is lovely in an ideal location for walking, drinking, eating and shopping. Clean and tidy with all the little extras you need. The only reason we would not come back is the street noise at night. On a relatively busy road and could hear traffic a lot through the night and we stayed out of school holidays. Other than that would recommend, maybe just take some earplugs.

Can't wait to come back
Our second stay at Wrenville which was just as good as the first. The cottage is in a great location for visiting Keswick and the Northern lakes. It is ideal for walkers with it's large utility room which is ideal for for storing/drying boots and wet gear if you get caught in the rain (it does occasionally rain in the Lake District!) The house is very comfortable and has everything you need - although we did miss having Wi Fi. It is great to have your own parking space next to the house which can be at a premium in this area. We have stayed in Keswick on numerous occasions and this is now our first choice if travelling as a family - highly recommended

Brilliant cottage in great location
This was a very well equipped cottage, which fulfilled all our expectations from the website descriptions. The location was excellent, a short walk into Keswick with parking for our small car. The cottage was very well equipped and very comfortable. We had a great holiday and would definitely recommend this cottage. It had lovely views across the river and to the hills in the distance.
