    Sorry to say we decided to leave a day early. The cottage was clean but with an occasional doggy ‘odour’. Very disappointed with the garden which was unkempt and the garden furniture shabby and dirty. Clarification of the garden boundary would have been useful also. Wi-Fi was unobtainable even though our devices stated otherwise. No signal. Had to walk 200 yards to the community centre for a phone signal (disconcerting had an emergency arisen). The stated on-road parking was hit and miss, this was unfortunate as my sister has limited mobility and I had to park in the community centre…….too far for her to walk. I did try on three occasions to call the local contact name and number as stated on my information sheet , to no avail. There was also no welcome pack as stated by other visitors in the reviews. Not sure if this ‘gift’ has been discontinued as nothing noted in the info. May I suggest it be stated that this cottage is not suitable for folk with physical disability minor or otherwise. Lovely for walkers and rambles. 3 star only.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Sorry Woodburn disappointed you on this occasion. Unfortunately we were abroad on holiday when you visited the Cottage. I did try to make contact by email and phone prior to your stay, to explain that we were not able, on this occasion, to leave our normal welcome pack and also to offer the use of the next door cottage drive for off road parking. This is a courtesy we offer to all our guests. The phone signal and Wi-Fi can be a little unreliable in the area as the Cottage sits at the foot of the fells. Normally phones all work fine when fairly close to the cottage. Mine is certainly OK in the cottage, garden and outside near the road. This is the first time I have heard of anyone needing to go that far to get a signal, but I suppose it will depend on the device and service providers. I understand this must have been inconvenient. I am really surprised that the garden disappointed you as it normally elicits a very positive response from guests. As it is a very natural Lakeland garden we do not try to keep it particularly neat and tidy, we just try to keep it "under control” and perhaps the recent weather and our absence had made it a little more "lush" than normal. The garden boundary is described in the information pack provided and we have recently added some more garden chairs. There are also three other garden benches in the grounds, but I appreciate that these may not have been suitable for a person with mobility issues. I'm really sorry that in the circumstances you did not find Woodburn suitable, and regret not being able to make contact, which I'm sure would have helped you.

    Cottage needs a good clean. Our two under 2s quickly highlighted dust everywhere, found a dog toy covered in spider webs and left over dog biscuits from previous guests. It was a wet weekend and the cottage leaks from the front door in to the living room. So it was wet to the stairs across a 3rd of the room. Once damp you clearly get the distinct smell of wet dog!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Really sorry you were so upset by the cleanliness at Woodburn. Since opening 12 months ago, we have been receiving consistently good feedback regarding cleanliness and apologies if our standards slipped on this occasion. Thanks for pointing out particular issues which we will look out for in future, as well as trying to improve our attention to detail. The issue of the leak onto the carpet and the ensuing smell was caused by extreme weather and I believe was a one off event. In 6 years at Beckside, we have never seen as much water come down in such a short period. The cottage has never leaked in the past, and having recently checked the cottage myself as well as asking our last guests (who had very heavy rain last week), I am pleased to say there was no sign of any dampness or smell. Again, we're sorry if these events spoilt the weekend for you and the children.

    The cottage was lovely but was a little too remote. The village appeared run down in places. The pub was quiet but friendly and definately worth a visit for the ale alone.
