Loved: spacious downstairs, location, parking, well equipped kitchen, views, bathrooms x2, TV facilities, wifi, pub nearby, good cafe in village, 1.7 mile walk to Keswick, 3/4 mile to Keswick Launch jetty, availability of games and books and maps, lots of space for walking kit storage, bikes, etc. Heating was good and efficient.
Needs improving: lighting in lounge - a lamp or two would help rather than bright ceiling/wall lights; some plastic plates and cups for children; bedding situation was not clear, requiring call to owner before departure which was frustrating. told that single beds required all bedding to be brought but when we arrived, we found duvet covers were available. House was dusty, cobwebs etc and peeling wallpaper in dining room was a bit off putting. Decor generally was old fashioned and needed a bit of TLC. For a house where walking and outdoor activities are so key, a tumble drier as well as washer would have been useful, perhaps in conservatory/lean to?
We think the house has a lot of potential, but realise would probably cost more if it was more modern in style! It was good value, worked for us as a group of families and we would come again although would love to see the house cleaner and with bedding provided.
