    “The property is located very close to Coniston lake in a great neighbourhood.”

    We found it very clean but kitchen was very poorly equipped. We couldn’t work the induction hob because there were no compatible pots/pans. Had to rely on only two electric points for cooking for 15 people. The property had no bin bags/kitchen rolls etc.

    Hi, thank you for your honest review. We are sorry you couldn’t find the induction pans and pots, they are there I promise, our mobile numbers are provided if there are any issues. We have taken on new cleaners which also restock the house ready for the next guests and it’s unfortunate if this didn’t meet your expectations. We will go through the kitchen supplies personally and make sure everything within reason is present. We hope you enjoyed the complimentary extras which we don’t advertise. Property Owner
