Such a lovely cottage - beautifully furnished throughout. And such a peaceful little spot - hardly any traffic passing throughout the day so perfect for long lie-ins!

The hot water broke - it did get fixed however we never got a single apology. No welcome pack - there is some information which is very dated that is shut away in a draw. No bin bags provided. The cottage is rather cold - only has storage heaters which you can not alter and there is not one in the bedroom. Nothing terrible about the cottage but overall not a great one (and we have stayed at a few). We had a brilliant week but that was largely down to the splendid Lakes!
Response from the manager Thank you for your review of Blacksmiths Cottage. We are very sorry that there was an unforeseen circumstance whilst you were at the property that the hot water system was not producing hot water. According to our notes, you called us in the morning and the hot water system was fixed by approximately 2pm the same day. Points raised in reviews are very important to Lakes Cottage Holidays and we have passed on your comments to the owner of the property. The owner lit the fire in the living room for your arrival and there is a radiator in the wardrobe in the bedroom for guest's use for additional heating.

“A charming cottage in an ideal location”
We loved the cottage, it was very cosy downstairs with everything we needed.Upstairs,the bedroom was a nice surprise as it was extremely spacious.The decor throughout was tasteful and it was a pleasure to stay there.The location was great for getting round the lakes,we even ventured into Scotland.It would have been nice to have had a small welcome pack with at least tea,coffee and milk.

“Romantic honeymoon location”
Blacksmiths Cottage is positioned on the edge of Pooley Bridge with views out across open countryside. Although directly adjacent to the road it has it's own private garden, a lovely cottage style garden to the side. Parking is also accommodated for a short distance away. The property appointed internally to a high specification with good quality fixtures and fittings ( John Lewis, Laura ashley ) Blacksmiths Cottage has been well laid out internally and is spacious for two people, with all the comforts of home. For those visiting in the winter months there is also a wood burning stove to ensure warm evenings. All local amenities are within a very short walking distance away ( inclusive of 3 Pubs ) and of course the beautiful Ullswater Lake itself. We would highly recommend Blacksmiths Cottage for couples. We had a great stay and will be sure to return in the future.
We had a great week at Blacksmiths Cottage, it was so relaxing and the cottage was furnished to a high standard. The location was excellent and we cant wait to go back!
Very cosy cottage,very well equipped and beautifully presented. Excellent location only 10 minutes from Penrith, perfect for walking and access to the steamer and a perfect base for exploring the rest of the Lakes. Good food available in the village. Would definitely go back.
“Cosy cottage in a lovely little town and very accessible to stea”
Very cosy cottage with extrembly comfortable bed, double shower and log burner fire. Arrived on a very cold day and the owners had kindly put fire on and heaters but took a day for the cottage to warm up as been vacant for a week. Plus no hot water but owner did sort out temporary fix. Sofa not so comfortable and missed washing machine especially with cold wet weather and somewhere to store ice for drinks but small points as loved this cottage. Location very accessible for steamer across Ullswater and gateway to stunning walks. Pooley Bridge hotel served amazing food. Everyone extrembly friendly. First experience in the Lakes and very memorable.
“Home from Home”
Lovely Cottage,just right for exploring the lakes,warm and cosy to come home to. Also Pooley bridge not crowded this time of year.
“Realaxing, romantic stay in beautiful cottage in tranquil lakesi”
We were impressed with the business like approach regarding arrangements for our arrival at the cottage. The cottage was beautiful - decorated to a very high standard with a very comfortable bed and a modern bathroom which was clean and well presented. It was lovely looking out of the window at breakfast each morning and seeing the lambs in the field next to the cottage. The only challenges we had were with the heating and hot water as these were pre-programmed and the storage heaters didn't give out very much heat. However, there was wood and coal for the fire and throws in the living room plus a bedspread which meant we were able to stay warm. For those who truly want to self cater the kitchen was small and could benefit from some better quality pots, pans and utensils. Parking was very conveniently located and the village had no shortage of local amenities plus there was a steam boat down to Ullswater only a short walk away. Overall a very enjoyable stay and somewhere we would definitely go again.
