    Aira Cottage was a fantastic place to enjoy stunning Ullswater and the Lake District. Location wise you wont find better, you cross your driveway and you are on Aira Force. Overall we loved our break, but there are some areas we suggest need addressing. General cleanliness wasn't brilliant. The areas you see and use seem clean, but move the sofa 1" and you'll notice dust and books from the shelves (not any more as we hoovered and put them back). The window sills collected dirt and dead flies - the cottage suffers with flies full stop. We assumed its due to the location of the water, but we had half a dozen on the ground floor permanently. Spot lights in the kitchen hanging out of their sockets, door handles in places either not closing or in need of replacement. A very polite sign advising of the rules of the cottage - no dogs on the carpet, however this is contradicted in the guest services book as this states no dogs in the bedrooms. I understand not all dog owners are as careful of other peoples property but there was no fear of our dogs making the carpet any dirtier than how we found it. The upstairs barn / games room area still has the leaves from the autumn brushed into a lump. The patio set could do with an update. If we were paying £200 for the week I wouldnt moan at a cheap plastic table and chairs, but they are dirty and flimsy - there's a tatty old parasol in the outbuilding you can use if you wish, we gave it a miss. The property needs a little bit of love. It wouldn't take much to make this place stunning.

    This has the potential of being one of the best cottages we have stayed in. The cottage has a fabulous location very close to Aira Force a NT venue and has many local walks and within 400mtr of Ullswater lake. The cottage has everything you would need for a comfy stay and the additional activities such as table tennis, darts and the fact you can take your dogs were great. The only downfall was mentioned many times in the visitors book and was that some general maintenance was required and a good clean. We hope this does not put people off as we enjoyed our stay and will probably book again

    Superb location. Great place to get away from everyday disruptions of Wi-Fi and mobile phones! Beds and bedding would benefit from being replaced.

    Lovely cottage well suited for walking in the area and for relaxing. Good facilities for our small dog and muddy boots, i.e. drying room and easy clean floors. Beautiful master bedroom with garden through patio doors.
