Property Reviews

It was cosy, comfortable and very well equipped. I chose the location of the property to meet my walking plans and it met and exceeded my expectations. Hopefully, I will be able to return in the future as I could not find fault with the property or location.Mr Morgan
I absolutely can't fault it. Absolutely perfect. I've so far had 3 holidays this year with heart of the lakes and just enjoyed it so much, never felt so relaxed.Charlton
Lovely comfortable home from home.Unknown
Amazing apartment... don’t want to go home, spotless and well equipped. So many walks from the front door. Keep a look out for the red squirrels. Will return again. Excellent!Andy & Leigh Anne
Our first time at this property and definitely not our last! It has everything you can wish for and more. Wonderful walks from the door and even say the elusive red Squirrel.Paul & Alison
One of the best holidays we have spent in the Lakes, and there has been many. Can not fault the apartment, the location and the setting. We will certainly be back.Karen & Keith
