"A remarkably really get away from it all location"

I was not expecting Kingslakes to be as attractive a place as it turned out to be. It was so peaceful and relaxing I cannot wait to go back with the family. I am not into fishing, but found that Kings… More

"Secluded location, good 3 star accommodation"

We went as a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teenagers, 15 and 13. Saturday on arrival we were greeted and shown our cottage. First impressions were that it did smell a bit damp. The kids first impressions were that it was an old persons house. It may have been the old flowery settee! We were told that the fridge may not work properly and that a new one was on its way, Tuesday! Great I thought having brought milk and meat etc. However it wasnt too much of a problem because the weather was poor anyway, but they could have warned us! The cottage is for 6 and we only had 4 of us, and I don't think there would be enough room for 6 people(especially adults) to be fair. There isn't enough comfy chair space for a start! The reason the damp smell lingers is probably because of the shower room. Once you have all had one it takes a while for the damp air to escape. The were some grizzles about the comfiness of the beds too. The lack of wi-fi and phone signal were also a little gripe by the teens but it did make us play some card games together!! Also, the flies were very annoying, once the rain disappeared and the sun came out, so did the flies!!
However having said all that, the cottage was clean and had mostly everything you needed. The setting was very secluded and there is lots of wildlife. Also, my husband did teach my son some fishing and it was an ideal place for that, plenty for him to catch. (Although probably not hard enough for the more hard core fisherman!)
Will we go back? As a family-no I don't think so. There are many other places to go and enjoy.
Recommended to families with young children who like to fish and don't mind travelling for days out!

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are sorry you were not fully happy with your stay with us. To address some of your points: we only found out that the fridge was not working at full capacity on the Saturday morning (the freezer was still working) we ordered a new one immediately and were promised delivery on Sunday; unfortunately they changed the delivery to Tuesday. Sorry we can't control the weather and it was a wet week and the wettest summer on record - in the country we get flies with warm damp weather! The furnishings are 'cottagey' but we take note that they may not appeal to teenagers and we plan to replace the suite. The suite seats 5 adults comfortably and there is a basket type chair with cushions as extra. The disabled shower room is on the ground floor off the living area, it has an extractor fan and windows that can be opened, but may take a little while to air after a lot of use. The beds are all hotel standard, some are pocket sprung as reccommended by the tourist board. Sorry we don't have wi fi or a brilliant phone signal - this is due to our location. Our visitors say that the fishing is excellent and we have lakes to appeal to all capabilities. We want all our visitors to have a good holiday and we appreciate helpful comments about ways to improve their holiday experience.
