    Would have been useful to know about the road closure prior to holiday

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your high score for your stay at Burrow House and we hope you had a fabulous holiday. We're sorry we were unable to indicate to our guests when the road works were going to affect the section of road near the cottage but it seemed to have been only for a short period of time and I hope that it didn't disrupt your travel to and from Burrow House too much. We have since heard from the Waterworks company that this section should be complete before the end of March 2017.

    A beautiful cottage. Spotless and warm on our arrival, even a cheeky bottle of wine left and chocolates to greet us. Spacious with plenty of room for a family of six. A great time spent over Christmas and new year.

    The Cottage was clean, and very comfortable, and we enjoyed the Log/Coal fire on an evening. Logs and kindling were kindly provided which lasted two evenings. There was ample parking space for our two cars. The location was a bit isolated, and I was slightly disappointed that although in the heart of the Lake District, there was nowhere to walk my dog. Narrow footpaths, and fast traffic, made it a daunting experience outside of the garden, which, thankfully was just about adequate. In this day and age we found a week without "wifi" a bit of an inconvenience. We were aware that this service was not provided, and thought nothing of it, however, we did miss it more then we thought we would. On the whole we were delighted with our stay, and will definitely consider Burrow House in the future. If "wifi" were to be available we would almost certainly be back. Thank you to the Proprietor for ensuring everything was up to a decent standard.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments and we're glad you enjoyed your stay at Burrow House. I know that a lot of our guests use the Outward Bound Centre next door from the house to walk their dogs but also immediately across the road from the house there is a public footpath to Cartmel Fell via Birks Road which leads to an open and wooded area which makes it ideal for dogs. Since you stayed, we've upgraded the property in last 2 weeks and we hope that you stay with us again in the future.

    Response on behalf of the owner; We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Burrow House. If you come again we hope you will appreciate the upgrades we've just made in the last couple of weeks since your stay.

    A good location and well equipped. Not a child friendly property for young children, as the stairs are steep and no gate is available. The hot water on an electric meter was a strange throw-back to the 70's but not an issue.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Burrow House. Just to respond to your comment about electric coin meter; this is for immersion heater only but there is unlimited hot water in the kitchen and toilet, and of course the electric shower. Unfortunately we had to install the meter as some guests were leaving the immersion heating on for the whole week. If you stay with us again, please do ask and we will be able to supply a removable stair gate for your convenience.

    Burrow House was a lovely surprise, very spacious and we thought that the photos really don't do it justice. It was very clean and lots of character. The garden was a real bonus too, great for our three children to enjoy and gets the sun all day. Could perhaps benefit from wifi, but thats not a big deal in our opinion. Really enjoyed the quirkiness of the original bedroom floor! Would definitely stay here again.
