    “Had to press reset nearly every morning before we could get any hot water.”

    One bath towel not sufficient for a week and too small.

    One bath towel not sufficient for a week and too small.

    Thank you for your feedback, I'm very disheartened that there was a fault with the boiler and we were never contacted, we would of helped you the best we could to get this fixed. In terms of the Towels, for each holiday let 8 clean towels are left at the property, 4 bath towels are left on the beds. 4 are left in the draws it looks like the towels left in the draws were not found.

We would have resolved the issue. Please could all holiday makers make Lakelovers aware if you have any issues with the property. We will make sure they are dealt with.

The property

A short stroll from the shores of Coniston water, this traditional gamekeeper's cottage is full of the character of Lakeland stone-flagged floors, old oak beams, heartwarming fires and adorable cottage windows -all wrapped up with tasteful decor and furnishings. Views are to the lake and the Coniston fells, taking in Brantwood - famous home of John Ruskin. Sunbeam Cottage has an intriguing link with this famous writer and thinker - find out more when you arrive! You are also just a short stroll from a traditional country pub as well as being an ideal base for walking, Sunbeam Cottage is a treat for sociable gatherings. The dining room is atmospheric, with traditional stone floor and that working range stove for warmth. == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 2 cars outside the cottage, and further parking close by. Entrance porch with space for walking clobber. Dining room with local slate floor, pine furniture and working range/wood burning stove. Separate living room with warming open fire, original exposed beams, Smart TV and wi-fi service . The kitchen overlooks National Trust land. Upstairs to 2 pretty bedrooms, 1 double and 1 twin, both with breathtaking fell views. The bathroom overlooks Coniston water and features a roll top bath. Outside, you'll find a private enclosed garden with stunning fell views, patio area for dining and a secure bike store with racks for four bikes. Conveniently situated for the Coniston Water lake. Location A Coniston holiday cottage takes you slightly away from the hustle and bustle of Bowness and Lake Windermere, to a wilder landscape full of adventure. Coniston Water is famous for its part in Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons, with Peel Island being the setting for the 'Wild Cat Island' featured in the story. The lake is also known for Donald Campbell's water speed record attempt in 'Bluebird'. But the real magic comes from the breathtaking surroundings; dramatic fells including Coniston Old Man, wild woodlands and wonderful Lake District walks. You'll have access to no end of stunning routes, from leisurely strolls to challenging ascents. You'll enjoy access to the peaceful village centre, well equipped for stocking up the kitchen with traditional butcher and supermarket. There are lovely tea rooms, cafes and traditional Lakeland pubs in Coniston village, and the Black Bull Inn is well worth a visit for its award-winning brewery the Coniston Brewing Co. For a cultured day out, head to Brantwood historic house - an impressive residence overlooking the lake, once home to John Ruskin the famous artist, writer and creative thinker. You'll find a range of events on offer, such as talks, concerts, craft workshops and even outdoor theatre.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

Nestling at the head of Coniston Water, the pretty village of Coniston is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District National Park, making it a superb base for touring, with Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere and Grasmere just a short drive away. Superb walking, mountain biking and climbing are available locally on Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam, and the lovely woodland trails at Grizedale Forest. For watersports enthusiasts, the quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing, whilst the less active can enjoy a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht 'Gondola’, or visit Brantwood, the former home of John Ruskin. Nearby attractions include the award-winning village of Hawkshead, home of the Beatrix Potter Gallery, Tarn Hows, one of the most visited beauty spots in the country and Esthwaite Water, famous for its fishing. A first class holiday location at any time of the year.
