    Great location!! Unfortunately decor is very tired and in need of maintenance. Fan oven did not work, many down-lights not working and blind on main window broken. Worst of all floor rugs were filthy - we removed them. Cushions on sofas were so grubby we felt we had to wash our hands if we touched them - we removed them as well. Sheets smelt of polish. This is NOT a 4 star accommodation!!! Very disappointed!!!!

    Our first time at The Carriage House and sincerely hope it won't be our last. Beautiful accommodation in a stunning location overlooking Ulswater. Would certainly recommend to anyone. Thank you

    The Carriage House is a compact, well furnished and well equipped cottage with a beautifully laid out garden and very pleasant views of Ullswater. The interior fittings are all fairly new and provided pretty much everything we needed for a very comfortable week's stay. In fact, the cottage would be pretty well perfect were it not for the cramped bedroom space on the mezzanine level in the roofspace. Even though we are fairly short most movement in the bedroom had to be with a stoop or crouch. Goodness knows how the really tall would manage! We also wonder whether the lack of full curtains across the window wall may make the living space less cosy during the colder, darker periods of the year. Despite these caveats we would certainly book the cottage again.

    Although a beautiful setting, the cottage, we felt, was a little small, especially the bedroom. We loved the garden, the views, the modern bathroom & the well-equipped kitchen but found the bedroom tough to cope with for a week. Perhaps a younger couple would be fine but it wasn't quite right for us.

    The location was wonderful and the property very pleasant. However the lack of headspace in the bedroom area was not properly explained. We managed but not everyone might. A reduced price would better reflect this one, but significant, drawback.
