Sorry, no smoking. Pub 2 minute walk.

Note : If arriving in the dark please bring a torch.

Region: Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Town: Situated just to the north of Skiddaw, Ireby is an excellent centre for touring and walking throughout the northern Lakes yet is relatively unspoilt and provides a haven from the hustle and bustle of the busier parts of the Lake District. Ambleside and Windermere are however within easy reach. There are numerous walking opportunities from the door over the Caldbeck Fells and Skiddaw which leads you into Keswick (12 miles by road) where many amenities including Derwent Water, restaurants, pubs and shops await you.

Response from the manager Thank you for your recent review on Ale Cottage. The issues you have raised in your review have now been investigated and discussed with the owners. Any cleaning issues you found on arrival or during your stay should have been reported immediately to the owner. Their details were included in your directions and key collection information which was attached to your booking confirmation. Had they been made aware, the caretaker would have been able to attend and liaise with you personally regarding any problems you may have had. There has been, on occasion, a musty smell in the basement bedroom. This is obviously due to the location of the room, however, literature has been provided in the property with instructions on preventing this from happening during your stay. Unfortunately our company and the owners of the property were not made aware that a house in the village would be having work carried out on its roof. This is, again, outside of the owners control. Had they been made aware of this during your stay, contact could have been made with the householders concerned in order to minimise any noise. Ale Cottage is not advertised as having WiFi available. Due to the geographical nature of the Lake District it would be advisable to check with your service provider regarding telephone signals if you are looking to stay in one of our more rural properties. We are unable to prevent anyone from looking or driving past this property as it is located on the main thorough fair of the village. The lounge area is located on the first floor and there are nets and curtains provided for the rooms on the ground floor to ensure privacy at all times. We can confirm that our office, the owner of the property and the caretaker were not contacted regarding any issues or problems you may have had during your stay at this property. We were not informed of your concerns until 3 weeks after your departure, therefore, we are unable to comment further with regards to any cleanliness issues or noise pollution from outside. As a company we pride ourselves on our Customer Service. We hope that these issues did not detract from your stay in the Lake District and we hope to welcome you back to one of our properties in the future.
