    “After a long drive we arrived to find that the property had not been cleaned.”

    The main bin in the living room was full along with rubbish in the bathroom and bedroom bins. The bedding had not been replaced nor had the towels. There was washing up on the side. We were asked to vacate the premises do that cleaning could be arranged ...

    The main bin in the living room was full along with rubbish in the bathroom and bedroom bins. The bedding had not been replaced nor had the towels. There was washing up on the side. We were asked to vacate the premises do that cleaning could be arranged. The stay itself was pleasant. We would recommend that the TV is replaced as it has lines down the right side and across the bottom quarter of the screen. We would also recommend that the main settee is replaced as it offers no support at all. Premises is well suited to explore the South lakes area but we are not able to recommend it to others

    We are glad you enjoyed your recent holiday but sorry to hear you were not completely happy with Hayloft. The cleaning was unfortunately a genuine mistake with our housekeeping department and we can only apologise for this. However we did offer £20 for refreshments whilst this oversight was remedied (which you refused) The apartment was ready for you to enjoy at 4.20 pm which is 20 minutes later than Lakelovers official check in time of 4.00 pm but again we apologise for this unfortunate mistake. As regards to the settee we have never received negative comments before but your feedback has been noted. The TV is under 2 years old and was in good working order for the previous guests so we can only assume it’s a recent fault. Property Owner

This captivating contemporary Lakeland retreat sits in a residential location, a stone's throw from the heart of picturesque Windermere village providing a gorgeous, romantic and convenient hideaway for any special occasion. Completed in traditional Lakeland barn style externally, in keeping with the locality, but step inside and you'll fall in love with this light and airy converted barn loft. A plethora of old oak beams and a mix of carpeted and Amtico floorings contrast sumptuous, deep-cushioned furnishings and crisp traditional walls which carry throughout, the traditional woodburning stove provides for cosy nights in, cooks will be delighted in this state of the art kitchen, and the central location for easy eating out. The stylish bedroom is complete with star gazing window and not forgetting the luxurious bathroom with designer slipper bath and separate monsoon shower cubicle, perfect for long soaks and invigorating hosings after a hard day on the fells.
