“A Great Choice”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Booked 3 nights in Dovedale Apartment to celebrate my birthday.Great Location only 5 mins walk to the White Lion Patterdale for evening meals and Patterdale stores for breakfast provisions and daily paper.Great views from the Bedroom and lounge.
Well appointed apartment with log fire on those colder nights which warmed up the whole apartment.WIFI good and plenty of mod cons.Well decorated with lovely prints of penguins and polar bears on the walls.
Within walking distance of Hellvellyn ,paths hard and easy from here, we went for hard so did not make it to the top via striding edge this time as to much birthday wine the night before so easy path next time rather than less wine.
Ullswater ferry stop and other walks within minutes of the apartment including Glenridding Village.Parking space available.
Met the resident bear who was very accommodating although we had to make our own cups of tea bit like our own bears who just laze around all day.
Will look at booking again for next attempt at scaling local peaks & doing the lakeside walks.

“Wonderful and restful”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A fantastic place to stay. The appartment is equipped to a high standard and has a lovely view from the bay window with the brook babbling past its a great place to sit with a coffee or glass of wine!
From Patterdale there are many walks which are easily accessible without having to use a car and The White Lion pub in the village provides a welcome pint on theway back.
We really enjoyed our week here and will come back again.

Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Dovedale and were able to do some of the walks from the door. There is some fantastic walking from Dovedale.

Hope the lack of EE signal wasn't too much of a problem and that it meant you were able to get away from things! Vodafone does work here but it's the only mobile network which does.

Hope to see you again soon.

“Dovedale is a gem, inside and out!”
Reviewed 25 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Dear Christine,

Just a quick note to say thank you for letting us stay in your lovely apartment.

We had a wonderful week, climbing 24 Wainwrights! In the past we have been pleased if we've managed 5 or 6 in a week!
Rachel even went swimming in Brothers Water on her birthday (though she did scream a bit getting in)!

The thing about the flat was it was so homely. We cooked most nights - its the best electric hob I've ever used - I usually swear by gas - but now I'm a convert to electric.
We came back exhausted most days, but after a great nights sleep we were raring to go the next day.
The weather was very kind to us too, so we even had breakfast outside some mornings, watching the lambs frolic in the field opposite.

We are now very sad to be home after what was an amazing week.

Thanks again.

Cheers,

James & Rachel.

A delightful little hideaway perfectly located to explore some of the best Lakes scenery without even having to step in the car. Everything was thoughtfully arranged and communication with the owner was flawless. One to recommend.
