    “High Lindeth was exactly as expected and we loved its quirkiness with the upstairs lounge and the down stairs kitchen, the latter being at the other end of the long property.”

    This reflected the cottage and barn conversion of years ago. ...

    This reflected the cottage and barn conversion of years ago. Whilst the property was presentable we are not sure that the property had been deep cleaned. This was due to the fact we had additional and unwanted guests - Mice. Whilst we are country folk and live in a semi rural location so are faced with this pest regularly, we did not expect them in the lounge - the beige light coloured sofa had many mice dirts on it and it looked like they were nesting in it. In addition they had meals from Xmas presents around the tree. Similarly, in the kitchen where they ran amok and whilst we left very little uncovered, if we did, we paid the price. We had to clean the work surfaces every day and cover all cutlery at night to stop them going all over them and make sure everything was spotless. Would we rent the property again - Yes without hesitation.

    Dear Mr Hooper, thank you for your comments. This is really helpful and we take feedback like this very seriously. The visitors are Voles and we have taken immediate action to deal with their unwanted presence. We have have taken measures and will check them every day and will continue until the problem stops. We really do look forward to welcoming you back to High Lindeth. Best wishes, the owner. Property Owner

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