    “Blackout curtains would be a good addition especially during the spring and summer months when it gets light around 5.”

    30am. A washing machine would be preferred rather than having to trouble the host, especially if you stay for a few weeks. A grab rail in the walk in shower is a must for safety reasons. Aside from the above the cottage was 100% perfect

    Thank you for your feedback, owing to the size of the property it would be difficult to fit a washing machine in the kitchen and this would also mean a tumble dryer would be necessary owing to our unreliable Cumbrian weather, obviously this would also impact on the weekly rate as energy costs are so high. With regard to the blinds, there are both drop blinds and lined curtains but I appreciate it’s a very large window. Your comment re the grab rail for the shower will be addressed. Thank you for staying with us and pleased you enjoyed your time here. Property Owner
