    Lakelovers have been utterly rubbish in their customer service and were not interested in rectifying any of the issues: Mattresses are extremely old and we couldn't sleep as a result of their poor quality. I asked for an extra duvet to put on top of the mattress but this was deemed not possible. The bathroom is freezing cold and shower is but a mere trickle. The sofa where we tried to sleep is like something you pick up for £10 from the charity shop. Having paid 800 pounds for 4 nights I really was expecting to enter into qj apartment of comfort. I also contacted the owner directly to complain and despite having read the message I got no reply. Really very disappointed

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback after your recent stay at Low Croft Cottage. We are sorry you found the property unsatisfactory. The property is advertised as 3* self catering accommodation and recently gained its award by Visit England which was carried out at the end of November. The property is not listed as luxury and the grading, description and photo's show the standard well. Pricing is generally high during the Christmas/ New Year period as it is one of the busiest times of the year. Lakelovers manage the property on behalf of the owner the cleaner strives high in standards of cleanliness, they were recently awarded 100% by Visit England so we apologise that you found these standards were not met. Regarding the mattresses and sofa this is the first comments regarding this so we will monitor going forward. The owner has advised that you have been in contact with her directly. Property Owner

The property

A stone's throw from the centre of Grasmere, this beautifully renovated Lakeland cottage is situated in a quiet mews courtyard setting and is far from just a convenient bolt hole. With characterful exposed beams and roof angles which have been retained and only add to the charm of the place - somewhere to relax, unwind, and embrace the pace and beauty of this world-renowned area. Take advantage of your private parking - you can explore wonderful walks, spell-binding arts history, cosy Lakeland pubs and friendly village life without even using your car. == Accommodation in detail Private parking in the allocated space outside in the courtyard. Enter to spacious utility area - ideal for those with valuable walking equipment or bicycles. Entrance lobby leads upstairs to the first floor living area: this raised open plan living area offers a comfortable sitting area, dining area and well-equipped kitchen. Second floor: two pleasant cottage bedrooms (one double bedroom and one twin bedroom). A modern, sky-lit bathroom with shower over bath. Location At the very heart of the Lake District National Park, Grasmere is an adorable Lakeland village with ample facilities for self-catering breaks - including some excellent pubs and restaurants. It's full of Lake District charm and character and also steeped with artistic history; William Wordsworth lived here in Dove Cottage (open to the public) during one of his most productive periods as a poet. Local painters have also long been inspired, and several watercolour galleries exhibit in the village including the renowned Heaton Cooper Studio. This fascinating village is a great place to base your self-catering holiday. On lazier days, explore the quaint village centre or take a peaceful riverside walk. Nearby Rydal Water is a particular joy. If you're looking to hit the fells and explore secluded tarns, you're in the right place. A manageable hike leads up to Easedale Tarn, amidst fells above the village. Serious walkers might attempt Fairfield, Silver How, Helm Crag and Loughrigg; all within easy reach. A starting point for Helvellyn is only a short drive up the road at Thirlmere.

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.
