“Perfect base, gorgeous cottage”
Reviewed 2 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

2 adults, 2 kids and a dog. Just got back from a few nights enjoying the sun, and rain (!) of the Lakes. Low Mill cottage proved to be everything, and more, that it promised. Super base (roads aren't great to drive but that's nothing to do with the cottage), comfy beds, fully equipped kitchen, even a bowl and box of biccies left for the dog!
Yes, a couple of sachets of milk would have been appreciated but it's self catering, not a hotel. Having agreed it with Kathryn we had a Tesco shop delivered the night of our arrival. All hassle free.
Highly recommend the Windermere boat hire (lot of fun out on the water), Derwent Marina, Lingholm Est for lunch, Beatrix Potter museum (in Bowness and Sawry, both Max 25mins from the cottage).
Recommended the cottage while we were still there and have friends looking at booking soon!

Had a good stay. However would have appreciated a welcome basket or even a bunch of flowers. All other self catering cottages we have stayed have had something. Internet/wifi was a let down. Basics such as toilet rolls/ garbage bags were not there.

I will have to take this up with our cleaners, as they always leave toilet rolls and bin bags. Thank you for letting me know

“bathroom 2 ???”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We recently stayed with friends at Low Mill and overall found the cottage to be reasonably clean, cozy and well equipped. However one issue did spoil our stay. The cottage is advertised as having two bathrooms. This statement is at best misleading because the cottage has one bathroom and a small windowless understairs cloakroom. My husband has side effects following cancer treatment and our friends booked the cottage taking into account our request for our own bathroom. This was so that he could have private facilities. He needed a relaxing break and this issue did effect his enjoyment of the holiday. I do think the cottage details should be reviewed to show one bathroom and a downstairs cloakroom. after a search on your site I have found that other similar cottages do not classify a cloakroom (toilet and small wash basin) as a bathroom.

“Missing bathroom”
Reviewed 13 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I agree with toilet humour as it was written by my husband
If we had booked for one bathroom would of been fine but we had booked expecting two
We did have fun looking for the missing one !!

“Toilet Humour”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed at the cottage for four nights early June.We booked this with friends and were happy to see it was advertised as two bathrooms.When we arrived we could only find one bathroom on the first floor and a small loo under the stairs.
Knowing our friends pretty well we weren't too worried,only to find the downstairs wc with no window also had a fan that did not work.
There was the odd joke or comment throughout our stay,but all taken in good heart.
Apart from that the cottage was really nice ,plenty of heat and hot water,kitchen well fitted out and a great position to explore the Lakes without bumping in to too many tourists.The cottage itself is in a block of three or four with no real garden to speak of,although seating outside was ample and not overlooked.
Warning signs on gates were not too welcoming,Dont walk your dog,this is not a childrens playground,keep out.etc,but apart from that all very nice.bit of a pain having to open and shut the gate,especially when it's raining,not sure why because there was a gap that you could walk through right next to it,so it wouldn't have kept children or animals in.Knitpicking I know,as we didn't have kids or dogs!
Unfortunately The Swan at Newby Bridge had drainage problems also with overflowing waste running into the car park from Cess pit/Tank,hence the title of this piece!
Would we stay here again,yes definitely ,but will take an air freshner or two

The cottage amenities show that Low Mill Cottage has one family bathroom and one downstairs W.C. It also mentions this in the description.
If you had wanted to keep young children or pets safe in the rear garden, then we had a gate in the upstairs cupboard to use.
The signage to the field is due to the fact that the farmer keeps sheep in the field, and does not want them to get out onto the road. If extra parking had been needed then the farmer is more than happy for guests to park their cars in the field.

We have had Low Mill Cottage as a holiday let for 9 years now.
We take great care looking after the cottage and maintaining it. It's a shame that the first thing we knew about the extractor fan, was in a review that automatically goes on-line.
