We had a lovely welcome to Old Laundry in the Four Gables Estate with the owners waiting to greet us as we drove up.
The cottage itself is a beautifully restored, old building attached to the owners' House.The restoration has been done caringly by the owners and family and original features have been retaywhere possible. The furniture, fixtures and fittings are all really good quality, especially the beds.The ensuite bathroom and shower room are also equipped with high quality fittings.
The kitchen has been thoughtfully designed and kitted out, with a double fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, oven and hob and microwave. Everything we needed was there and, the tea/coffee tray set out for our arrival was a lovely touch.
There were large, smart, flat screen TVs in both bedrooms and lounge, so we were able to use our own Netflix as well as the Free Tv and BluRay DVD player. WiFi Broadband was a good speed and available throughout the cottage.
We did try to find fault with the Cottage, but really couldn't! We would definitely recommend Old Laundry and hope to stay, again next year ourselves!
The property is finished to a very high standard, and guests are fully provided for.
The setting is beautiful and the hosts Emma and Justin, were very accommodating.
The nearby village of Brampton, which we were able to walk to away from the road with both prams, was both quaint and well serviced with decent small supermarkets for all the essentials and more traditional groceries and butchers to choose from as well as enough pubs for a respectable little crawl. There is also a nice swing park on the way, which our boys enjoyed. The beds were comfortable and the place had all the facilities you would only expect from a luxury hotel. We genuinely couldn't ask for anything more and would definitely recommend this charming holiday rental to friends.
The renovation has been very well done and the quiet location is a great base to explore the surrounding countryside which includes lovely towns and villages, Hadrian's Wall and is also very close to the north side of The Lake District.
The two larger holiday homes in the complex are even more luxurious and are clearly great venues for family parties.
We will return later in the year.
