Lovely holiday in this quiet cottage in the small village of Flookburgh. There is a well stocked shop, a pharmacy and nice pub with beer garden in the village. The cottage is really well equipped with everything you need. The owner was very good at emailing to make sure you were ready for your stay Lovely welcoming bottle of wine and chocolate biscuits. Spotless clean. We made good use of the small garden and BBQ. Thank you for a lovely holiday base.
We really enjoyed our stay at Lavender Cottage and with our 2 teenage daughters had a brilliant holiday in the lake district. The cottage was well equipped and very clean, with good amenities throughout, very comfortable after long days climbing mountains. The location was ok, took about an hour to the heart of the lakes but beautiful scenery. Also excellent fish and chip shop in village, very handy. We would recommend the cottage and be happy to return if we visit the lakes again.
This is an ideal location for the Lake District, it is south of the lakes so bear it in mind when planning your visits as Windermere seems busy all the time!
A well presented house, back from the main road but was always able to park on street or nearby street in easy walking distance. The house had all your needs covered and then some, only criticism is it could of had a tumbler but we managed fine on airer provided. Bed was comfy and place was clean, there was a little smell of damp but being an old property this is what happens and after being in for five mins you did not notice it.
We had an issue whilst we were the but it was dealt with swift and very efficiently by Nina in a very professional manner.
Hope to return next year.
This was our second time in Lavender cottage and it was just perfect. Great host, cosy, warm cottage. Ideal location for exploring Lakes with family!
Thank you Nina for yet another wonderful stay at your beautiful cottage- it never fails to disappoint. The week we chose this time was blighted with heavy rain and low temperatures. However, returning to this warm and cosy cottage in the evenings was just delightful- plenty of books, dvd's, games, toys and of course, free wi fi! The children never moaned once. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who loves the Lakes and likes that bit of something extra from the accommodation- great value for money too! Booking again in 2018- looking forward to it already!
A lovely location near to Grange over sands and a 5 minute walk to the railway station at Cark. Flookburgh suprisingly has quite a few useful shops too. The living and kitchen area is nicely laid out although parts of the kitchen are starting to look a bit dated. We were pleased that the owner had thought to leave DVDs and some toys including a train set which the children loved. The two downstairs bedrooms were fine and the bathrooms were newly done. We were pleased to find that there was an extra upstairs lounge and we used this as an extra bedroom for the travel cot provided. The only real negative was a slight smell of damp but this could have been if the house had not been lived in regularly as it improved throughout the week.
Lavender cottage was clean, had great facilities and was very comfortable. I would recommend against stopping for a drink in the nearby public house but don't let this affect your decision to stay as there are some very nice restaurants and pubs very close to Flookburgh that are very friendly and welcolming. A car is absolutely essential for your trip.
