Thank you for your review, we're sorry to hear that you found the heating wasn't set to your liking.
Guests are advised that in the event of any problem's arising, contacting the owner will bring a solution very quickly.
Valley View's gas central heating is over-specified for the size of the property, and is left on 'frost protection' when the premises are unoccupied. Similarly, the windows are left on half-latch to prevent condensation.
All guests need do is contact the owner for instructions on how to adjust the heating and fully latch the windows, if required.
Moreover, full instructions concerning the use of the heating control are provided in Valley View's information folder.

"Peaceful and well equipped"

A great apartment as a base for exploring the Lakes. It was equipped with everything you could need and spotlessly clean.

"Home from home"

Decided to go away for Christmas, left it a bit late so struggled getting in any where but spotted this accommodation and glad we did. From booking it till leaving everything just fell into place. Lovely clean accommodation, self catering, everything needed was provided for. Only 10 minute walk into Kendal Town and ideal location to get around. Would certainly go back.

Thank you very much for your appreciative review. It's nice to hear that the presentation of and facilites in Valley View are regarded!

"Great bijou apartment in a lovely location"

We had a really great stay (long weekend ) at Valley view apartment, the standard of accomodation was very good, quality furnishings and equipment. The location was excellent being a ten minute stroll into Kendal. The apartment is light and bright and modern with a lovely view from the sitting room / kitchen.
The owner kindly posted back my mobile phone which I left and was generally very helpful and on hand if you need them.
Kendal is a perfect town if you like beautiful countryside, good quality shops, great art centre ( Brewery ) and gallery (Abbots Hall ) and restaurants ( Baba Ganoush and New Moon are our favourites, also excellent artisan bakers Staff of life )

"What a perfect little nest"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Valley View. The booking process, care and support from David (owner) and the comprehensive equipment provided were all exceptional. It is perfectly placed for both walking and cycling adventures, and provided a wonderful retreat at the end of a busy day exploring the wonders of Cumbria.

100% recommend this for couples looking for adventures.

Thank you very much for your appreciative review. It's nice to hear that the presentation of and facilites in Valley View are regarded!
