    We loved this cottage! It was furnished to a high standard and was very comfortable. The games room was great fun and is ideal for the unpredictable weather. Great location especially with the pub within a 5 minute walk.

    The location of the property was excellent with fantastic views and walks from the cottage. The cottage soon warmed up when we put the heating on and the bedrooms were well furnished and the beds comfortable. There was plenty of crockery in the kitchen but not enough casserole dishes, Pyrex bowls etc to make cooking easy. The shower in the downstairs en suite was not really useable as the water was incredibly hot and we could not alter this. Waste disposal was our other issue as the previous visitors had left the bin overflowing and we ended up taking all our rubbish during the week to Ambleside. The games room was a great asset and was used every day. A great holiday.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for taking the time to post a review and we are delighted that you had a great holiday. Further to your experience with the shower in the downstairs en-suite, we have arranged for the thermostat to be replaced. We will also review the number of casserole dishes etc asap. The bins are emptied every fortnight which is usually sufficient so the guests who stayed before you must have had an awful lot of rubbish - I am sorry that you had to remove your own rubbish but thank you very much for doing so. We are really pleased that you found the games room such an asset and hope that we may see you back at Tock How View in the future.

    We should have stayed longer. The cottage is lovely. The only downside was that the Sky box didn't work - but as we had no intention of watching TV much anyway, this did not affect our holiday. Can't wait to stay there again.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much and thanks for taking the time to post a review! On the back of your feedback we found that the Sky remote control had stopped working and immediately replaced it. We have since replaced the Sky box with a new smart TV with Freesat which gives a better offer of Freeview channels through the Sky dish as well as access to Netflix and i players. We look forward to welcoming you back to Tock How View in the future!

    My sister and I took our mother for a weekend break away, to revisit places we used to go to as youngsters. To find this beautiful barn within a two minute walk from the 'Outgate' pub was a dream. We had a superb meal at the pub served by a lovely young lady. The layout of the rooms was perfect for us, we each had our own room with our own bathrooms. The views from every window were fab, even got a glimpse of the fells from the kitchen window. My Mom felt as if she had gone to heaven when we went out onto the balcony. It was just a shame we had torrential rain on the Saturday so couldn't utilise that space fully, but at least we could still appreciate the views from inside. The place was so light on what was a dismal day. We are going to have to come back to the Tock How View to do the walk from the cottage to Hawkeshead and to Latterbarrow Fell. Mom kept saying that she didn't want to leave the place, as in all the years she has been visiting the Lake District this cottage was the nearest to perfect she had visited, for the view, facilities, decoration, location and layout. I agree!

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted that you had such a wonderful holiday with your sister and mother and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future!

    Excellent. Our only issue and minor. Please could there be a warning that the oven has severe top heat.

    We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Tock How View. Having read other reviews we were more than a little disappointed. We arrived and the property was freezing cold. It had been empty for a few days and it took several days for it to heat up. We had a toddler with us so were a little concerned. The next problem was that we had organised a cot and highchair which were nowhere to be seen. Once located we found the cot broken at one end. The stairgate was also broken and replaced with one which was not suitable for stairs! In all other properties that we have hired where needed the cot has always been assembled and if the owner/agent had done this they would have found out that the cot was broken. A new cot was provided three days later. Small living area for six and insufficient kitchen space for storing one's own things. In over thirty years of hiring cottages in the Lakes, this was the one we enjoyed the least.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: We are very sorry that our property did not live up to Wendy's expectations and hope that readers of these reviews can see from the many positive ones posted that it is not a true reflection of our property. There has never been an issue with the travel cot before, although I know from experience that they can be difficult to work out, but after being told that the guests thought it was broken we made the 5 hour round trip to deliver a new one as soon as we could. We do not include a stair gate as part of the offer but are willing to consider that for the future. Our experience with the temperature in the property has always been that it heats up quite quickly and there is also a log burner available to help, as well as under floor heating in the en-suites and heaters in every room. We work hard to maintain our high standards and feel this review is very harsh.
