Sawmill Cottage Reviews

From Email:-

Well you have one heck of a corker here Simon. Simply stunning!  I lost count of the number of ‘wows’ as we explored.

Each room from the entrance hallway onwards was amazing. I fell in love with the bathroom at the back and the lighting – will definitely be having a soak there this weekend. The master bedroom with the balcony looks divine too!

Very impressed with the Wi-Fi strength. We even managed to log into Netflix with no issues and the signal strength was very good.

Loads of room to put our food etc, the kitchen is fabulous with good products.

We were honoured to be your first guests. What a privilege. We wish you lots of good luck with this newest property but I have a sneaky suspicion that you won’t need it though this place is so wonderful it will sell itself! Shona & Graham Lancaster, Bolton, Lancashire

Charcoal House Reviews

From Email:-

We had a great time – it is the first time my husband and I had been to the Lakes and we loved it.

The house was extremely comfortable and furnished/decorated to a very good standard. I fell in love with the Aga, having never cooked on one before and loved the fact that most of the house seemed to benefit from the heat generated. My husband is dreading the inevitable request!

We will almost certainly be making another trip to the area, probably at a similar time because we enjoyed the beautiful autumn colours so much and the added benefit of very few people around, although it was far from deserted.

We also spent far more time and money than was good for us in Booth’s (the North West’s equivalent to Waitrose-but much better) – Stephanie Locke

Cartmel Hill Reviews

5 of 5 Review on ‘Home Away’

“Stunning Large Holiday Home in Cartmel village, South Lakes”

We expected a lovely cottage from the pictures but what we got surpassed our expectations.

The property is set an an amazing location in the beautiful area of Cartmel, with every room spotless and finished to the most perfect detail.

Our party of 10 adults had such a relaxing stay, whilst our little one was captivated by the internal and external scale including the two staircases and lovely garden.

Unfortunately we did not get the opportunity to use the Summer House but hope to return to do so in the future to do it justice! 

The communications from Simon were virtually instant, clear and informative.

Would highly recommend to anyone looking to enjoy a break from it all – Colin
