“Small but functional.”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2014

The cottage is small but functional, and the heaters work. The open fire has no mechanism to control the draft, and so tends to burn very hot and fast. The stairs would be difficult for someone with impaired mobility. It would be better to remove the doors from the wardrobe in the double bedroom, as they cannot be opened far - or better, remove the wardrobe and just have hooks on the wall. This was a winter walking holiday, so the location was excellent. The cottage was hard to find from the instructions in the dark. The instructions could be improved.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Talcomb Cottage. We are pleased you enjoyed the location of the property and found the cottage functional. Thank you for raising the point regarding the directions to the cottage, we will review the directions and improve them if we can. Lakes Cottage Holidays hopes to welcome you back to one of Lakes Cottage Holidays properties in the future. Kind Regards, Lakes Cottage Holidays 017687 74060

“Talcomb Cottage”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2013

We stayed here for a week in July. The lake District was fabulous and we really enjoyed staying near keswick. Seldom Seen was great for waking the dog; however we were disappointed with the cottage as the stairs were very steep and the main bedroom very small. We will certainly return to the Lake District but not to Talcomb Cottage.

“Short Break at Talcomb Cottage”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2012

Whilst Talcomb Cottage was ideally located for our needs we were disappointed in the overall quality. The cottage was meant to cater for up to 4 people however, cutlery and crockery did not meet this requirement and the front bedroom was far too small to accommodate a double bed and it was virtually impossible to walk round. Upon arrival we immediately had to set to and clean the accommodation, including flushing the toiltet!! Our views were expressed to the rental company on returning the key, and in their follow up survey, to which no response has so far been received. The steepness of the stairs makes this accommodation unsuitable for people with mobility difficulties and this should be made clear in the description so that people can take it into consideration before booking. On the plus side the lounge area was comfortable as were the beds together with the fact that there was off road parking

“Overpriced cottage”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2011

Overall this cottage was a huge disappointment. Outside was a bit run down looking. This was let as a 2 double bedroom cottage. Room with double bed could only accommodate one person at a time, therefore, 1 person had to get into bed before other person could get into room to get undressed. The kitchen surfaces were tidy, but cupboards etc were in need of a thorough cleandown, and hairs had to be removed from shower plughole by us, before we could use it. Shower also high off floor so not suitable for elderly. After complaining we did receive a £50 refund, but even with this it was still overpriced. Would definitely not recommend this rental.
