“Nice location, quiet but easy reach of Ambleside & Hawkshead.”
Not very welcoming as the underfloor heating was off when we arrived so it was very cold. Took over 24 hours to warm up from the 12 degrees to recommended 22 degrees. I appreciate there hadn't been anyone in for a few days prior to our arrival but it would have been nice for this to have be put back on in time for it to be a comfortable temperature on arrival day. Its via Hive so can be done online remotely.
The cottage is very small, as expected, the bed is tiny though.
Bedroom smelled musty due to the damp and there were spots of black mould on the walls. Dishwasher wouldn't work, not the end of the world but slightly annoying. Fan in oven sounded like it was gong to explode. Extractor fan in bathroom was very loud and shower itself had a mind of its own when it came to the temperature, regardless of touching the dial. As others have noted, the sofa is past it's best.
Basically the cottage is in need of some TLC and bringing up to date to warrant the 4 stars rating and price.
