We had a lovely stay in this property, it is a well modernised 1970’s house. It is mostly in one level (with stair gate provided) so was ideal for my family which include (Website hidden by Airbnb) year old. Children’s cutlery and DVD’s all provided with high chair, cot and also …

Hi Sonia, So pleased you had a good stay and want to come back. I’m glad it worked for your family like it does for mine. Yes the ground floor room is less good. We do highlight that on the details. We thought most people would only book if didn’t use or for kids like you say but everyone so far books and uses and seems happy- so up to them! I’m sorry the bed was less comfy. I will get that looked at. Yours is the 1st mention of it. Thank you so much for letting me know! And many apologies RE the noisy heating. We just stayed and noticed the rumbling- the fan speed was on too low... it has now been adjusted. Still not quiet- I’m afraid with the air duct system there is always some white/brown noise but it’s less than you would have had. Apologies for that. Hopefully hear from you for next summer. Shelley

Loved our stay here. Was such a great house with loads of space. Gorgeous garden to have a cup of tea or glass of wine. It was also really handy to have a washing machine and tumble dryer and all the extra kids bits just made everything easier.

A lovely setting in the quieter northern Lakes, close enough to roads to get places but well off the beaten track. Fabulous views, very comfortable house. Lovely cafes, walks, pubs etc. Found lots of venues for our older relatives as well as plenty for the younger ones to do…
