Traffic noise spoilt this holiday - forget a lie in.
To get hot water and hot radiators we had to purchase fuel and keep the fire in. Water pump located in lounge very noisy. Mattress on bed needs renewing. Not possible to use dining room as it was too cold and the table too large. Light bulbs too weak.
Best thing about this cottage was location to nearby excellent pub. Sadly we couldn't walk to it as road was too busy and noisy.
The most amazing Comadation

- Main issue is that it is situated on what looks like a layby on the main road into Windermere so noisy through the night and a worry if the dog had gotten out.
_ Part of the staircase does not have a rail so is not good for people with mobility problems which I have.
- The bathroom had not been properly cleaned.
- Only a two seater couch to sit on in living room so very cosy.
- Only one electric socket by the kitchen units so you cant use the toaster and make tea at the same time
- It is near Windermere and within walking distance of local pubs
- The kitchen is modern and well equipped
- It has lots of cupboard spaces and loads of coat hangers
- The bedroom is spacious
- It has wifi
- The television gets a lot of channels (sky not just freeview)
Overall would not stay again becaause just off the main road
