    The cottage was amazing. Everything we needed in one place. We had a lot of information from the landlord about directions etc., There was so much room, so you didn't feel that you were cramped at all. We needed for nothing.

    Foldgate is a great cottage for a big get together, nothing flashy, but great value and everything you need for a nice relaxing time. There is plenty of space so at not point did we feel overcrowded, despite there being 12 of us. We all felt very comfortable in the house and the contact we have received could not have been better. I would certainly return to Foldgate, though I would definitely recommend the coast road for access; the locals drive with much confidence over Corney Fell!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for the lovely comments. We have worked hard to provide a comfy home from home for large gatherings. The coast road is certainly an easier drive but in the good weather the fell road is simply stunning.

    Family get together, with kids and dogs. This place worked out extremely well. Not boutique but comfortable and practical.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to comment. We are within the Lake District National Park so we have to comply with rules about exterior appearance and have tried to make the internal accommodation comfortable for families.

    great weekend away with family kids loved it and adults enjoyed it too the beds are so comfy . only thing is the need to re decorate the front room but other than that will be booking soon

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for the kind comments and especially for pointing out the comfortable beds, as others have not been as happy; we love them and we do feel it is personal preference. We have spare toppers if someone does feel they want a bit more softness for their bed. During January we do try and redecorate, and each room is completed every two or three years.

    My second visit to Foldgate, absolutely lovely cottage. Not much around but surely that's what you want if you go to a cottage in the lakes?! I couldn't use the hot tub due to being pregnant but the rest of my family definitely approved! We had a 6 year old & a 1 year old with us & they both enjoyed it too! Would stay again for sure. A lovely relaxed family weekend.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for returning to Foldgate and having a lovely second stay; we hope to see you and the new babe later this year. It will then be your turn to enjoy the hot tub.

    Our overall experience was great however, we did find that the cleanliness of the cottage was very poor, which is a shame as the cottage boats a high level of character.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. We are so happy to know you enjoyed your stay. Please come back soon. We checked our log and could not find any cleaning reports being filed and that is a shame as we provide the three numbers so visitors can report anything to us upon arrival and our caretaker would then see what you see and take action as needed. As you say it is a location and property that boasts a high level of character and as it is 16th Century spiders enjoy it too so sometimes people see a cobweb and think it is bad cleaning when in fact it is just a newly spun web which we can easily remove.

    Wonderful place for a relaxing family break. We had a full house but we were definitely not over crowded. We were lucky enough to have some great weather in the afternoons, which was spent either in the hot tub or out and about. The Brown Cow provided a lovely evening with a play room for the little children, pool table for the older children and a very lovely meal for all. Great views, comfortable beds, comfortable furniture (just a little dated in the living room), great kitchen amenities with everything provided for including everything needed for a barbecue. Not a lot to do locally, but plenty of suggestions in in the handbook provided you are willing to drive. Plenty of suggested walks for those without small children. We would recommend the South Lakes Zoo, definitely worth the money. We did have a slight issue with the hot tub on the first day, but the caretaker did everything possible to rectify, as well as the owner Ian. We still enjoyed the hot tub immensely and would recommend Foldgate as a great place to stay.

    Response on behalf of the owner. We are so happy to know you enjoyed your stay overall. Please come back soon. Perhaps Muncaster Castle would be a good venue for you as we went there today with our five year old grand-daughter and even babies and toddlers were enjoying the lovely grounds, very well planned playground and the birds of prey show. We are just five minutes from the beach by car. Hope to see you back soon.
