    The skiddaw apartment was ideal for two people, the house itself looks a little unloved and it was a little awkward to find. The rooms were warm, the 4-poster bed was excellent, the kitchen was well equipped there were washing facilities including a dishwasher. The settee is well worn and needs replacing, the TV is very small but if you're here for the lakes, who cares. All in all, this was an excellent stay. The owner went out of his way to ensure that the apartment was warm when we arrived.

    On arrival the first impression when stepping inside the apartment was of damp and mustiness. A dehumidifier was running in the bedroom-not a good sign. It was obvious that the property and grounds had seen better days but I fail to see how it could claim to be a Luxury Apartment in its present condition.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We have had an unprecedented period of wet weather and flooding, and there is no evidence of damp in the property, as confirmed by the Regional Manager during a visit to our property. The dehumidifier is in place as the bathroom, although vented, does not have a window, and the moisture can circulate to other rooms. This is not totally necessary, but ensures our guests comfort. The gardens have also been tended by a gardener who is associated with the National Trust, and he has cleared all the footpaths for guest and the gardens have been cultivated, and there is a spectacular view of the North end of Windermere from the private garden.

    This property is part of an outstanding building in an historically important garden. The important garden has now been overrun by native plants because of neglect in a 30-40 year period. The current owner has taken on a massive task renovating the house and garden. He has invested heavily in expensive furniture which is presumably the justification for describing the accommodation as luxury apartments. However, the overall condition of the building is that the renovation of the rooms themselves does not meet the same standards. The walls are poorly decorated and our ground floor room felt damp. Low overall rating because of this. Equipment was good but comfort poor because of damp feeling: hence midway score overall. Location was excellent except the owner expected new arrivals to approach the site through a narrow twisting drive, when there is a much safer and easier approach to a larger parking space at the back of the building. Hence 8 overall. Cleanliness was average. Value for money poor because the property did not meet a luxury apartment claim.
