    “The property was excellent, well equipped, well maintained and nicely decorated for Christmas.”

    Beds were comfortable. We did have to override the central heating schedule a fair bit to keep it warm enough during the day (the weather kept us inside a lot). The bottle of wine left for us was an unexpected pleasant surprise, thankyou. We were mildly disappointed at the cleanliness of some of the kitchen equipment - glasses and pans that really needed washing before use and at the half used pint of (sour) milk dated BB 30th Nov that had been left in the fridge.

    Beds were comfortable. We did have to override the central heating schedule a fair bit to keep it warm enough during the day (the weather kept us inside a lot). The bottle of wine left for us was an unexpected pleasant surprise, thankyou. We were mildly disappointed at the cleanliness of some of the kitchen equipment - glasses and pans that really needed washing before use and at the half used pint of (sour) milk dated BB 30th Nov that had been left in the fridge. We’d also enquired specifically about logs and been told that there had been a recent delivery and would be plenty for the week. In fact the recent delivery was coal and there were only a handful of logs. This meant we had to make a trip out to buy four bags of logs and a box of kindling as we specifically did not want to burn too much coal. We enjoyed our holiday and expect that we might rebook in the future. Thankyou !

The property

Keswick 7.9 miles. Scale Force is a delightful mid-terrace cottage in the Lake District National Park's Seatoller, Cumbria. This property offers a wonderful hideaway for a family or group of friends wishing to explore the area. Park-up before entering the property, passing a charming bench where you can listen to the babbling river that runs past the cottage. Step inside to find the open-plan living space and social core of the home, with a kitchen, dining area, and sitting area. Cook up a storm in the kitchen for the family to enjoy at the table for six, then move through the space and enjoy a film on the Smart TV while the fire flickers. Choose from three well-appointed bedrooms when it is time to rest, including a king-size master with river and countryside views and a twin, both served by a bathroom. Back on the ground floor, the remaining bunk room is ideal for children or friends, and you will also find an additional shower room, completing the cottage's interior. This location has plenty to do when you want to explore; the Lake District National Park is popular for hiking, cycling, and watersports so there is something for everyone. Buttermere Lake and Derwent Water are a short drive away and provide spectacular views, lakeside walks, and you can even get out onto the water with a kayak rental. Visit Keswick, a thriving nearby town where you can visit the Keswick Museum and find plenty of stores and restaurants to stock up on basics and pamper your loved ones. Further afield, The Puzzling Place offers mind-bending interactive exhibitions and Brockhole on Windermere makes a fabulous, family-friendly day out. Scale Force is a lovely cottage for a family trip to the lakes.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
