We go to Low Fell Cottage every year. Fantastic location. Beautiful cottage. My dogs really enjoyed their visit. One of my them refused to leave on the day of departure so we had to carry her out. I can highly recommend this property.

We had a week at Low Fell at the end of July 2022. We have rented holiday houses in various parts of the UK, and we all agreed this our favourite. Its location is peaceful and is a tree-lover’s paradise. The house is surrounded by mixed conifer/deciduous woodland, some of which is part of the property, and the garden is a lovely area of lawns and interesting trees and plants. There are two sheltered sitting out areas with chairs and tables. The house itself is traditional Lakeland in style. It is very comfortable and has all you need for a good holiday (well-equipped kitchen, bedrooms etc). The furniture includes desirable Mousey Thompson pieces. We felt that the house is loved by the owners and we could see why. This area is uncrowded. It is a short drive to Lake Windermere, and central places like Langdale are only 14 miles away.

To explain the above: Pricing in line with the market for this sort of property. Cannot really score beyond mid range. Large space, with plenty of room and pleasant garden. The wood is not a “feature” though: it is pristine (would be challenging under foot), with insecure fencing. That is fine (not a complaint - but not what I had hoped for). Comfort/cleanliness. Major damp problem. We knew from prior reviews, but downstairs single bedroom smells of damp, upstairs single bedroom had flecks of paint on the bed that had peeled off. Upstaurs bathroom should have had extractor fan installed, as also suffering from damp problems. Downstairs had a vent, not an extractor. We knew about the spiders - they were friendly! Comfort/equipment: biggest issue was with the heating. It’s JULY. Does not need to be on in July, and certainly not with “please do not adjust” signs, which I’m afraid we just ignored. Sofas not the best. Location: rural idyl springs to mind. Re the wood above, there was a nature reserve and a plantation 75 yards along the road, which have permissive footpaths. Local Amenities: oddly enough, given the rural location, there aren’t any! We explored various pubs etc. Around the Lakes over our holiday, and would strongly recommend some. Overall: the damp is a genuine downer. The location is an absolute winner. The heating issue was just odd.
