  • “We enjoyed our week in High Raise Grasmere.”

    Previously we have booked private flats/apartments and been disappointed and thought booking through an organisation like yours it would be near perfect. With the emphasis on extra time needed for cleaning because of Covid we thought we would be entering an apartment that was 5* clean. Although we were not intending to give a thorough inspection, it was just items that we came across. Sitting on the toilet we noticed a cobweb and a couple of black hairs on the floor.

    Previously we have booked private flats/apartments and been disappointed and thought booking through an organisation like yours it would be near perfect. With the emphasis on extra time needed for cleaning because of Covid we thought we would be entering an apartment that was 5* clean. Although we were not intending to give a thorough inspection, it was just items that we came across. Sitting on the toilet we noticed a cobweb and a couple of black hairs on the floor. In the kitchen/diner there was cobweb/dust on the bottom of the window. These had not just appeared and certainly were not just a week old. We have photographic evidence. There was a bag of something in the frozen part of the refridgerator which because it was solid, had obviously been there for weeks. This suggests that the housekeeper only gave it a cursory glance without any clean/defrost.. When we first arrived there was a printed notice on the table suggesting that crockery/glasses have been washed in a high intensity wash and left in the dishwasher. There was no dishwasher in the apartment and I would suggest that the crockery etc., is not disturbed from the last clients wash. The door on the pan cupboard was hanging on an amatureish couple of wood pieces and supported by the next cupboard door. Using that cupboard meant that extra pressure was put on the pan cupboard and eventually it fell to the floor. I reported it to your office on Monday and suggested the problem should have been fixed before we arrived with proper hinges. Incidentally the reverse of the dishwasher card was the instructions for leaving the apartment re the laundry. This was hard to read because the handwriting had faded/smudged. The letterbox outside was stuffed with old mail and flyers which we left in the apartment. Why doesn't the housekeeper bring it in or the owner collect it\? Although we didn't have a need the code for the laundry cupboard did not unlock the door. We called for help with the TV on the first day ,however, we found instructions later from the handbook hidden below the table lamp table. If that had been in a more visible place like the table top, the call could have been avoided. However, the gentleman that came out may have done us a favour. We reported an incident to him, that occurred to our car on the first day of arrival and he may have mentioned it to the cafe owner , Annoyingly, when we arrived the parking was very tight and because one of the cafe plant pots was protruding beyond the corner, unfortunately because of the tightness in turning, I scraped the bottom of the car against it. Fortunately, for the rest of the week the pot had been moved further in. As no doubt you will agree that based on the above the suggested deep clean and extra time needed is false and the client loses because we have to t enter the apartment later than pre=Covid.

About the location

GRASMERE

Ambleside 5 miles; Windermere 9 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

Situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park is the lovely village of Grasmere, probably best known as the home of William Wordsworth, a place he once described as "The most loveliest spot that man hath found". Any visit to Grasmere needs to include The Grasmere Gingerbread shop, where the Wilson family have been making gingerbread for over 60 years. Also in the village are a number of shops, pubs, a church which dates back to the 13th century and Grasmere Lake, plus Grasmere Sports takes place every August, where you can watch participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland Wrestling. Just five miles away is the town of Ambleside and Lake Winderemere where you will find shops, pubs, restaurants and the 17th century Bridge House, which is one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District. Cruises, boat trips and watersports can all be enjoyed on Lake Windermere and the towns of Windermere and Keswick are also within driving distance. Grasmere is a wonderful base for your Lake District retreat.
