    A comfortable, well-equipped property, in a convenient location. Ideal for our 3-generation party, but also for three couples. Shame about the carnage currently on the doorstep, following Storm Desmond, but easily forgotten when snugly inside this oasis. One tiny niggle - The welcome pack of basic tea, coffee, sugar etc, often found elsewhere, would have been nice.

    This is a beautiful cottage, right in the heart of Glenridding. The cottage itself was gorgeous and had plenty of space for a family of 4 and our dogs. The log burning fire was just what was needed after a chilly walk. The kitchen had everything you would possibly need, with the exception of a rolling pin. The beds were extremely comfortable and warm. The owners arranged to have a beautiful Christmas tree put up as we were staying over the holiday period, which was a lovely gesture. There were a couple of negative points though, the double bedroom downstairs was really small and had a funny smell when we arrived. The small tv in the front room didn't have free view, just the very basic channels and the WiFi only worked in the front room. But these are really only minor faults. Overall, it is a great place to stay and we would certainly go again. I think it was quite expensive to stay in this cottage, but we did stay Christmas week, so this was why it was more expensive than perhaps it is at other times of the year.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review and apologies for the negative elements. The smell in the bedroom may have been a consequence of recent flooding in the area as drains on the lane were affected. The television is 42 inches with Freeview and the Wi-Fi works throughout the house. Services were disrupted during the week after the floods.

    I have Ben visiting god ridding for some time staying in cottages on the outskirts of the village and we thought for a change we would stay in the village centre. Bank End is slap bang in the centre a great location, that is all it is. I was disappointed with the cottage internal set up, the ground floor bedroom for a double is small, and the en suite is ridiculously tiny. Other bedrooms are not much better, the living room, dining room and kitchen are well equipped without being exceptional and the fridge freezer is located in a cupboard not ideal for getting in and out. All in all disappointed for the cost of rental stayed in better equipped for a lot less.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are sorry you were disappointed with the Cottage. There are photographs on the website of the bedrooms to enable people see if they suit their needs. The fridge freezer is located within a walk-in pantry with plenty of room for appropriate use. The Cottage has been a holiday home for thirteen years and we have never received a complaint about the size of the rooms.

    We had a fantastic stay at Bank End, the house comfortable, clean and well-equipped - and far bigger than we had expected. The location is great, right in the centre of the village, so really easy to get about. It was lovely coming back from a long walk to such a comfy, luxurious feeling home, and not having to wait to use a bathroom was a big plus too! We also got married whilst staying in the house, and it served as a perfect base for us and our family for the week. We had the best week ever, and hope to return on our anniversary!

    We couldn't really fault this cottage; it was ideal. Also very suitable for dogs, with secure outside area and lake five minutes walk away.

    There isn't a better holiday home in the Lake District if you want to walk from the door onto some of the prime fell routes and have decent pubs/cafes and shops to hand. If Bank End ever comes on the market there'll be a stampede to buy it made up of all the people who love going there again and again.
