The exterior view and the interior of the cottage was excellent.

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!!!

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.

The property was clean and modern and the view over Ullswater Lake was amazing. The only thing missing was dishwasher!

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.

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.

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!

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.
