Description

This large farmhouse is adorned with period features and homely décor plus lake views from the majority of the bedrooms!

An inscription over the lake-facing door dates Wreay Farmhouse to 1787, but parts are much older and the house is mentioned in documents from the 13th century. This detached holiday home is full of character with beams, it commands views over Ullswater. Seven of the eight bedrooms overlook the lake. There is a large library of books, videos and classical CDs with good playback equipment in the public areas. The living room with its open fire is cosy, and the conservatory facing south-east catches the morning sun. Watermillock is admirably placed for visiting the Northern Lakes and fells, with excellent walking and cycling amid splendid scenery. Water sports nearby, and steamers cruise the lake throughout the year. The Brackenrigg Inn (10 mins walk) is noted for its food and the picturesque village of Pooley Bridge (3 pubs) is 2 miles away. The lakeside road meanders over the Kirkstone Pass. Enjoy the spectacular scenery, then drop down into Ambleside and Windermere and Grasmere nearby. Shops 2 miles, pub ½ mile.

    We chose this property for the number of bedrooms it offered and were impressed by the very large oak table in the dining room which our party could all sit round. There are great views of the lake but the bushes etc in front of the house have been allowed to grow wild obscuring this view and encroaching onto the patio are. The chairs and tables on the patio are shabby (not chic) as is the decor and a lot of the furniture in the house. The caretaker was excellent and very helpful. All the time we were there we had an infestation of flies. A previous comment in the guest book also mentioned this and there was little to keep them out. All in all I thought it was overpriced and poor value for the amount we paid

    Lovely house and location. Huge problem with flies! But we appreciate this to be down to climate and an exceptional problem that existed in northern England at this time generally.

    Beautiful location, huge house with plenty of rooms and bathrooms, lots of equipment in the kitchen utilities (dryer, washing machine, fridges and freezers). Not the most modern of houses, more traditional but good for groups and those happy to without luxury and who will be outside a lot of the time! Would recommend and book again!

    A wonderful quirky cottage, warm and clean and full of curiosities as well as everything we needed.

    Fungi growing on an interior wall caused by a long-term water ingress. One shower not working. One toilet bowl not bolted to floor. One toilet seat wobbly but not adjustable due to corrosion of bolts. One window frame rotted through so that an attempt to open it resulted in the frame disintegrating where leaver is attached. One shower door that will not properly close. Generally eccentric electrics. A water leak in one bedroom dripping through an electrical wall mounted extractor fan. On the positive side, the house has a nice location and is warm but some attention from the owners to basics is needed.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We appreciate all customer feedback and take appropriate action to improve our accommodation at every opportunity. We are planning to refurbish the main 2 bathrooms from next week (January 2018). We sincerely hope that customers will notice some changes in the future.
