“The kitchen was effectively in the basement and although very well stocked, it smelled permanently of damp - it was also, very dark, all of the time -needing the lights on; really disappointing.”
The duvets are well past their best and need replacing, luckily there were one or two blankets in the wardrobes which ‘saved the day’ otherwise, we would have been cold.
The heating system was ‘all over the place’ and out of sync. I advised Lakelovers in the Windermere shop and they were due to get a maintenance man in, to adjust the settings. Unfortunately we had a total blackout just before we left and although it meant, that the power switch in power box just needed ‘re-tripping’ as it happened at 11.00.p.m. at night......it wasn’t easy scrambling around in the pitch black, looking for a torch and then sorting things out. A minor nuisance, but annoying !
