Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Lovely property but I found it cold; there was heavy rain before and during my stay. June 2012.
  2. A very comfortable, well appointed cottage which is very well placed for keen walkers. June 2012.
  3. Lovely little cottage, clean, modern and well equipped, with fantastic views! June 2012.
  4. Fantastic property, equipped with everything you need. Just 2 1/2 miles from Pooley Bridge which is easy to walk to. We can recommend the steamer to Glenridding. This cottage provides a superb base for many walks and is the perfect, tranquil place for a break. March 2012.
  5. This is very comfortable, cosy, well appointed little property. The fixtures and fittings are modern and everything works - the lighting is particularly good. The views are lovely and it is in an excellent location for walking the Eastern Fells. We intend to return! Oct 2011.
  6. Superb location with excellent accommodation and stunning scenery. The Carriage House is very modern and well equipped with all the home from home comforts you could ask for. Limited space in the bedroom area due to it being in the ’loft’ and maybe a window in the roof would make it a little more airy but everything else was perfect. July 2011.
  7. Excellent location. Fabulous views. Feb 2011.
  8. Property is very modern inside and well equiped - we found all we needed and more - to help us plan our walks, to enjoy time at the cottage - dvds, books, etc. Dec 2010.
  9. Clean and comfortable. Nov 2010.
  10. Beautiful surroundings, very clean premises, wonderful views. Sept 2010.
  11. Clean and tidy excellant facilities nice welcoming bottle of wine and fantastic views from lovely accomodation position. We will certainly be back to this great location. April 2010.
  12. Cosy and warm! Far away from busy roads! Feb 2010.
  13. The exterior view and the interior of the cottage was excellent. Jan 2010.
  14. The carriage house was beautiful. The only problem was that the electric was turned off from 9 till 2 on one of the days!! Due to the cutting down of some trees outside of the cottage. So therefore we had no electric to cook etc. This was only a problem because we had no idea that it was going to happen. We called the caretaker and they told us why the electric was turned off, and they said that there was a letter somewhere informing us of this, which we couldn’t find anywhere. It would have been better if we had been clearly informed of this!!! Jan 2010.
  15. The renovation of this property was in keeping with the age of the property. The cottage was warm and cosy (especially welcoming as we stayed at the time of the floods). We couldn’t really fault the property, the refurbishment was well thought out. We have already booked for summer 2010 so that we can enjoy the beautiful gardens. Nov 2009.
  16. The property was clean and modern and the view over Ullswater Lake was amazing. The only thing missing was dishwasher! Oct 2009.
  17. Bedroom height a problem but rest excellent. Oct 2009.
  18. Very clean, cosy and "user friendly". Sept 2009.
  19. Amazing location & great views from the cottage. Well worth a visit! Jan 2009.
  20. The views are very picturesque and the location very central to the lakes and major towns. We have stayed here before and would hope to again. Oct 2008.
