    Lovely old house. Pretty gardens. All that you needed for a quiet break. Mobile signal very poor. Our dog loved the grounds but sadly they weren't secure and not ideal for an 'exploring' dog like ours. The heating was on all the time which made the house very hot - as we had an unexpected burst of warm weather it would be good if there were instructions as to how to turn this off. The lounge had a smokey smell, which cleared once the windows were opened - with only one key to unlock the windows and instructions to keep them locked when out, it would have helped to have more than one key. We didn't use the log fire but perhaps the chimney is ready for a sweep?

    Cottage was in a lovely spot. Very spacious and beautiful garden. Needs a bit of tlc but would stay there again as it is so convenient for visiting other places.

    Excellent holiday overall. Burrow House met pretty much all of our expectations. Some of the fittings and fixtures are dated but useable. My only criticism was that there was no Internet or wifi available so felt a little cut off.

    Burrow House, is probably best suited to those with dogs. However the garden isn't secure and is on quite a busy main road, although its set back. When we arrived the cottage smelt a mixture of cleaning products and dog and there was quite a bit of dog hair on the kitchen floor. The bathroom could use some redecoration as there is mould on the walls and peeling paint, the beds are not very comfy and the lamps not bright enough to be useful - i.e too dim to read in bed! Overall really unimpressed...to add insult to injury, hot water needs to be paid for which we knew so we had some £1 coins in anticipation - however the meter wouldn't take the new coin. The owner suggested we spend our holiday asking in shops for the old style coin. Not happy!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. We are sorry that you were disappointed with Burrow House. We are delighted to welcome dog owners to the cottage, one of few properties in the National Park where people can holiday with their pets. Whilst the garden is enclosed and gated as stated in the description, we would always recommend that children and animals are supervised. There are often rabbits in the garden which can get dogs quite excited. We note that you found some mildew in the bathroom and apologise for this. We, the owners , visited immediately after your stay and addressed the issues you raised. The coin meter has been removed and all heating lighting and hot water is included. Regrettably during the week you stayed, our electrician had been quite ill and this upgrade was delayed. You advised that you contacted the owners, but at no stage did you speak to us about your concerns. When you contacted our housekeeper she advised re obtaining some pound coins for the old coin meter and drove down from Carlisle at the earliest opportunity and donated £10 of coins to cover the remainder of your stay. Burrow House is a charming, cosy and very comfortable 17th century cottage in a prime spot and we do have many repeat visitors.
