    It was a very old world type cottage with many original features. It was situated on the corner of a very busy through road with lots of traffic noise. There were ample cooking utensils but many were very dirty and in a poor state of repair. There was a dishwasher but no washing machine, which would seem an essential item for anyone staying for more than a few days. Parking was difficult you had to do so a fair way up the road. WIFI was fine but it would have helped to put the fairly long code in the information book rather than having to struggle read it off the back of the hub. There was a fridge but no freezer. Electricity flickered quite a bit.There was a proper fire which had not even been cleaned fro the previous tenants. There was an electric shower over the bath but it only produced a reasonable flow of water for less than 2 minutes then it was a trickle. it was quite basic seeming to lack much TLC, certainly very poor value for money.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We agree that the road is busy but speed control is well monitored in Burton. Double glazing does reduce the noise. We have inspected the cooking utensils and agree that one frying pan and the wok do look worse for wear. It is a constant problem to us that non stick pans are regularly misused by metal spoons etc. We replace the frying pan at least annually and have removed the wok completely. A washing machine would be a benefit but we physically do not have the space for one or the outside space for hanging out. Unfortunately, parking is on street but not far away, so any problems experienced are beyond our control. Advise as to where to park is in the cottage. Good point about the WIFI password- have done that! Sorry but cannot explain flickering electrics, possibly problems with power supply? We do hope that if guests take advantage of the open fire then they would clear it afterwards, as this does not seem to always happen we shall have to other means to resolve it. Once more we cannot explain the problems encountered with the shower. No other comments from guests and we have just spent 5 days there with no issues. We are very sorry that you feel that Tyee is need of TLC. It has just completed a busy season and have already started our winter decorating and upgrading programme.

    Sorry to say not a good experience, the cottage states its dog friendly but Not really. There are notices to say dogs not allowed upstairs, dogs not allowed in the bedrooms! The bed linen was not clean (Marks on it both single and double) it also seems to be the norm now to have no slip mats in the bath?. The Hoover was clogged up and needed to be emptied, the mop had not been used recently. Out of front door onto road no pavement so not safe for dogs or children. Also the main road into Kendal runs straight passed the cottage meaning that it is busy all day, all night and very busy weekends.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: We are very upset to see the score you have given us. I will endeavour to cover the raised comments. Comments regarding where dogs are allowed in the cottage. Once again the notice from Welcome has caused confusion but one would expect that dogs are allowed upstairs as that is where the sitting room is. I have now modified the notice. The marks on the bedding are unexplained. Our caretaker does the laundry and is usually to a high standard. The bedding and towels are reviewed/replaced annually. There are nonslip shower pads located in the bathroom cupboard. The hoover and mop in the under stairs cupboard are for customer use as our caretaker brings all her own tools and products. We had hoped that if the vacuum had been used by a guest it would have been emptied. Clearly this has not happened so I will need to look at measures to resolve this. The points made regarding no footpaths, busy road etc. are clearly beyond our control. I am sure that many of these issues could have been resolved at the start of your stay had you contacted your booking company, caretaker or ourselves.

    The only thing that was unexpected was the traffic noise despite the double glazing, but it didn't disturb our sleep so it was fine in the end

    Absolutely loved the cottage - it was so much like living in someone's home than a holiday rental. Really well equipped kitchen, comfy furniture, good beds, nice lighting and a real fire to boot - who could ask for more? 5 minute walk to a lovely pub that served great food - even on Xmas Eve & Boxing day evenings

    We had a pleasant couple of nights on a couple of very wet December days/nights. There's one pub and one shop in the village which is 10 mins walk away. The accommodation was warm and cosy. We entertained ourselves, read and watched TV (bigger TV screen would have been nice ? )

    Lovely cottage,we will definitely stay there again.The only problem we had was confusion over parking,as in property information, it said parking is at the end of the cottages, but we got asked to move our car by a very grumpy next door neighbour!!
