    Nice place and good location just on edges of Kendal. Driveway on property is tricky but manageable. Property was clean and presentable but could use a little more refinement in furnishing. A waste bin in the bathroom would be nice as would a small coffee table in living room (for magazines, tv remotes, drinks glasses, etc).

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We’re pleased you enjoyed your stay at Woodlands. Thank you for your suggestions. We will be adding a waste bin in the bathroom. There is a small table in the lounge which has a lamp on next to the sofas and we suggest to guests that they use this for putting drinks etc. on. There is also a side board and of course the dining table which guests can use.

    Woodlands is ideal for young families like mine (3 kids + 2 adults). Great base for day trips to the Lakes. 15 minute walk from Town Centre. Spacious living room and huge kitchen. Would definitely stay again.

    Brilliant stay. The house is spacious with everything needed to make a comfortable stay. There was even milk on arrival. The owners seemed genuinely concerned that we'd have an enjoyable stay and gave lots of useful information. The location is walkable from Kendal. The house has nice surroundings.

    Just returned home from a very enjoyable stay at Woodlands. The owners were very accommodating and we were made to feel very welcome. The beds are super comfy and the house is well equipped with everything you need. Super views from the windows and excellent for spotting different wildlife such as birds, rabbits & deer & lovely large garden for children to explore. The driveway wasn't a problem at all to us, in fact it wasn't as challenging as we expected after reading some of the previous reviews! The house is in a great location for the lakes. We look forward to returning.

    We had a great minibreak at Woodlands. Good location for seeing the Lakes. Would definitely go back. Good communication and info provideded by the cottage owners. Only issue was the steps and steep drive were slippy especially for our young children.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thanks for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your break at Woodlands and you found our recommendations and information we provided helpful. We look forward to seeing you again soon. With regards to the drive, the recent and continuous wet weather has caused some moss to form on the steps. Once we get a dry day, we'll be treating the area with hypochlorite.

    Awful driveway not mentioned before we booked. 3 lights at front not on at start. Poor hot water. Lack of investment in property disappointing.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. Thank you for your comments. However, your review contains a number of factual inaccuracies which we would like to respond to. All the lights were working in the morning of the day you arrived and were checked by our cleaner. Once you called to say a couple of bulbs had blown, we immediately came to the property and replaced them and the issue was resolved straight away. We have had no complaints about the hot water from other guests and it is functioning normally. We also notified you of the heating booster switch which provides even more hot water and is enough to provide showers and baths for at least 6 people both in the morning and the evening each day.

    Woodlands is clean and the gardens well kept and we did enjoy our stay. However, lack of general maintenance and some basic information does not, in my opinion, reflect the four star rating. We could find no instructions for any of the appliances and there was a bare light bulb hanging from the ceiling in the lounge. I do not want to list everything here as I have already informed the owner so hopefully these problems will be addressed. The main problem here is the driveway up to the cottage itself. Although the owner forewarned us that there was no turning space at the top we were not made aware of how dangerous it actually was. The chances of falling off the drive onto the steep garden are high and whether you reverse up or down you have to go on to someone else's property to get in or out of the gateway. I'm sorry about giving a poor review as Woodlands is situated in a very good area for exploring the Lakes and the Dales and none of the issues mentioned actually spoiled the holiday. However, I did expect more from a four star property.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. Thank you for your comments. However, your review contains a number of factual inaccuracies which we would like to respond to. The instructions for all the appliances including dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave and wood burner, are located in a yellow file in the kitchen. During your stay, the bathroom window handle was jammed in the open position and a light shade was broken which we only discovered once you had vacated the property. The driveway is not dangerous. Yes, it is on an incline, but guests are made fully aware of this prior to booking and in the online welcome pack and the steps and drop in garden are highlighted. For those guests who do not wish to park at the top, there is space at the bottom to the left of the drive to park on the flat lawn. It's such a shame this review and the one above do not reflect the norm and the great reviews we have had over the years. We have had wonderful guests who have had fantastic holidays and short breaks at Woodlands.
