    “There are lots of positives about the house.”

    Great location and on a quiet road too. Didn't have a problem parking but we staying midweek so can't say what it would be like at the weekend. The front area is gated so great for ensuring dogs (and little children) can't get onto the road. It's only 5 minute walk to the town centre and also to Hope Park (which is lovely by the river if want to take children to a play area) nice cafe in the park too. Can also watch cricket match! The house is well provisioned, great kitchen with plenty of ...

    Great location and on a quiet road too. Didn't have a problem parking but we staying midweek so can't say what it would be like at the weekend. The front area is gated so great for ensuring dogs (and little children) can't get onto the road. It's only 5 minute walk to the town centre and also to Hope Park (which is lovely by the river if want to take children to a play area) nice cafe in the park too. Can also watch cricket match! The house is well provisioned, great kitchen with plenty of worktops. Comfy furniture in the lounge area although it is compact so if six people sitting in the lounge I can imagine it's a little cosy. Didn't use the fire as visit in May but looks great. Bedrooms are good size and the bed we used in the main bedroom was firm which we like. Bathrooms are great size with walk in showers. Water was hot and the one time heating came on (not sure why) heaters were hot very quickly. Nice back yard that got the morning sun. The few negatives are: Couldn't close the door on the dishwasher so handwashed, not a problem as only two of us. But would need resolving. Light bulbs out in a few lights in dining area, couldn't get main light over the table to work. Garden chairs in yard are very rusty so couldn't sit on them when it was nice in the yard, but there was a bench which was fine. I noticed someone fed back that the decor is 'tired', but it's fine, especially as this is a holiday home and will get heavy use. It's also an old house so there will be some cosmetic issues that show but it doesn't detract from the clear efforts that the owners have put into renovating the house and making it comfortable for the stay. Would we stay in the house again, yes. It has everything needed for a nice break in the Lake District and was reasonable in price to rent.
