    The gardens whilst left to wilderness are borderline untidy! The sofas in the lounge are tired and uncomfortable. The kitchen is not sufficiently equipped-tin opener doesn’t work, frying pan not suitable for induction and selection of glasses, including tired plastic wine glasses were disappointing.

    The gardens whilst left to wilderness are borderline untidy! The sofas in the lounge are tired and uncomfortable. The kitchen is not sufficiently equipped-tin opener doesn’t work, frying pan not suitable for induction and selection of glasses, including tired plastic wine glasses were disappointing. On the plus side the beds were clean and comfortable and the bathrooms excellent. I just didn’t feel the finishing touches were to the standard we normally experience with Lakelovers. Invest a little in the property and it will be delightful. Also note the local pub is popular and you need to book!!

    We would like to thank you for your comments. We are so pleased that you found the bedrooms comfortable and the bathrooms excellent. We are sorry to hear that the flower garden did not appeal to you. The garden is mowed once a week however the flower garden is left a little longer in support of the bees and the butterflies. It is of great importance to the owner that the kitchen is kept well equipped so we appreciate you bringing this to our attention for the owner to replenish accordingly. With regards to the photographs, we have taken your comments on board and will be looking into this. We would like to thank you on your feedback once again and we hope to welcome you back to High Lindeth again in the future! Property Owner

There are also a variety of watersports on offer for the more energetic at marine centres along the lake.
