    “The cottage is in a great position walking distance to Bowness and Windermere with parking for 2 cars which is a bonus.”

Someone came out promptly and fixed these but the problem with the TV occurred again on our last night. We noticed the carpets had not been hoovered when we arrived this must have been because both vaccume cleaners were full and not picking anything up. We reported ...

Someone came out promptly and fixed these but the problem with the TV occurred again on our last night. We noticed the carpets had not been hoovered when we arrived this must have been because both vaccume cleaners were full and not picking anything up. We reported this but as this wasn’t rectified we could not hoover the bedrooms or stairs before departure. Overall we had a lovely stay in the cottage and hope to come and stay again. Only negative is maybe a little more time could be spent on the cleaning.
