    “It's worth pointing out that the lock on this property is sticking, it took us half an hour to unlock the door from the inside multiple times.”

    It also kept sticking from the outside too so we couldn't get in either. Eventually it would unlock but you have to just keep trying it til it eventually works. The radiator in the bedroom leaks if you try alter it, we really wanted to turn it off as it was really warm in the bedroom but when we went to turn it down loads of water spewed out.

    It also kept sticking from the outside too so we couldn't get in either. Eventually it would unlock but you have to just keep trying it til it eventually works. The radiator in the bedroom leaks if you try alter it, we really wanted to turn it off as it was really warm in the bedroom but when we went to turn it down loads of water spewed out. The property is starting to look quite tired, we've been staying there for a few years now, we've been a total of 5 times and honestly the bedroom and bathroom needs a refresh now, there are cracks everywhere and the cleaners never clean behind the bed or the bedside tables, the dust in there is unreal. We like the location of the proper as it makes it easy to paddleboard but honestly we probably wouldn't stay there anymore if it wasn't for it being on the lake as we always have to deep clean it when we arrive. The floors are always really dirty and our socks end up black after an hour of waking around unpacking. The place needs looking after a bit better to be honest because it used to be really nice but after a few years of wear and tear and not very through cleaning it's not worth £800+ for the week. Besides the fact that it needs some love, the beds a really comfy, the location is stunning and it's actually a really nice little place, especially if you want to hike or get out on the lake, hence the reason we keep returning. It's worth following Windermere ferry on twitter to check if it's running or not too because if it isn't you've got a lengthy drive around the lake to get to the property. We arrived last week and I forgot to check but when we arrived in the lakes we saw that the ferry was closed for the whole month! Anyway, these houses have their pros and cons but my overall feeling is that they need a bit of a deep clean and a lick of paint (and a lock change)

This lovely set of seven cottages rest in the village of Far Sawrey, close to Hawkshead and Bowness. Each wrapped in views of a beautiful lake; the scenery can be admired from the comfort of your holiday home, as you relax in style. Boasting open plan living areas, you can look forward to evening meals after the sun sets, or simply enjoy some quiet time with your loved ones. All cottages benefit from a well-equipped kitchen and a lovely seating arrangement, so you can socialise from morning through to evening, discussing your up and coming adventures. To be at one with the views, wander outside onto the balcony, perhaps with a refreshing drink to start the day off well. The beautiful bedrooms offer a peaceful sleeping environment, and a shower room completes the accommodation. If you are looking for extra space, or hoping to bring along additional guests, Lund Cottage has three bedrooms with en-suites, and a woodburner to enhance those cosy evenings. You are sure to be impressed wherever you choose to stay. There is something for everyone in this wonderful location with the village of Far Sawrey housing a pub/restaurant, and Bowness, with shops, restaurants and leisure facilities; just a short distance across the lake by ferry. Watersports are close at hand on Windermere, along with Lake Cruises and the majestic Wray Castle to admire.
