“The Best”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed with another couple - a beautiful cottage in a perfect location... plus the best weather we've ever experienced in the Lakes and we been on numerous occasions. The photographs really don't do it justice.
The only negative (lthough that's probably to strong a word!) was the heat as not much ventilation upstairs, a fan or some kind of air con would have been great however in the winter this can only be a good thing Im sure. Lovely welcome pack, clean and tidy and lovely areas to chill out in whether inside or outside - even our 2 small dogs were chilled out - we will definitely be returning and recommending to friends and family.

“Excellent alternative to a traditional B & B”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at the Undercroft as it looked an interesting place to stay, and we weren't disappointed. The rooms are lovely and bright and offer excellent accommodation which is well equipped and has good socialising areas. It's only a 5-10 min walk to the town where there is a good choice of restaurants. The only negative is exactly as the last reviewer had mentioned, the lack of opportunity to open windows, which was a shame! Otherwise well worth a visit.

Thank you for taking the time to review the cottage. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay, really sorry that you were unable to open the bedroom windows, not sure why as they both do open, it's just a shame we hadn't know you had a problem during your stay as we could have given you help to sort it there and then. Appreciate your feedback, many thanks.

“BEAUTIFUL PLACE QUIET SURROUNDINGS”
Reviewed 14 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

people found this review helpful

I've just come back from a weekend away with 3 friends, the place is stunning very clean and modern, The pictures just dont do it justice.

Its a home from home, in fact we didn't eat out on either night we didnt need to.

There are a couple of pubs and restaurants about 2 mins walk (though there a little rough and ready), Bowness is about 1 1/2 down the road. Ideal if your after a relaxing base to stay.

The driveway into the Undercroft is very narrow (I was glad a wasn't driving) I would definatley go back

“Fantastic hideaway!”

We stayed here to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and what an amazing find! We walked easily to both Windermere and Bowness as it was bang in the middle which was ideal! The cottage itself is stunning with beautiful features! Everything you need is provided including a welcome pack with biscuits (for us and the dog) and the important wine! We took our dog and it was perfect and safe with a lovely fenced court yard which got the sun all afternoon! We will be booking up again and have family looking to visit in the summer as well!!
