Beds very comfortable, all the duvets and linen seems to be new. Very quiet. You can only hear the traffic if you open front door at noon. Nice view at the front over the green hill with some sheep and a little woodland on the side.
My dogs love the grassy front garden. Back garden is not enclosed, next door use it for access. There is a path to Walk up the mountain behind the house. You can not actually see the thirlmere lake, you can not even walk across the road up the hill. Drive 2 minutes to the right and first left to the free Carpark by thirlmere lake and woodland. You can walk a long the lake path, also can go up the woodland, the path goes around about 30 minutes walk, great exercise for dogs and us. Drive 1 minutes to the left and park on the left Carpark, great walk up to Hevellyn, great view and pass through gills and waterfall. All and all great base for your lake holiday. Wish there is a Wi Fi in the cottage and information. Kitchen no good knife for cooking, only 3 teaspoon, but not so bad. Collecting and returning cottage's key to Lakes holiday office in Keswick is not very convenience, don't understand why we can just get it from next door, considering they have copy of the key anyway.
Thank you for taking the time to inform us of your feedback of your stay at Gill Foot.
We are pleased you found the beds to be comfortable, enjoyed the view from the property and benefited from the local walks available.
Lakes Cottage Holidays hopes to welcome you back to Gill Foot or another Lakes Cottage Holidays property in the future.

“Lovley location but cleaner when we left than when we arrived.”

The cottage is set in a beautiful location with hills and a lake nearby however the carpet was still covered in dog hairs from previous dogs and we had to fix the vacuum cleaner in order to use it. So when was the last time the carpets were vacuumed? The beds had to be remade as duvets where in the wrong covers on the wrong beds. There was only one glass that was larger than a sherry glass which is awkward for a party of more than one person! The garden of the property is not enclosed as other inhabitants from neighbouring properties use it as a right of way and leave the gates open. Making it not secure for dogs.
Dispite these minor details we still had a good time and would return to the area again,perhaps not this property.
