I spent two nights at Dove Cottage with my son and a friend and it was everything we could have wished for. Everything we needed was there and we found the cottage to be comfortable, clean and well... more

Booking the property was alright. All details are on the website, and if you have any questions, he will tell you to look on the website. I felt more comfortable texting him then calling.
The property is easily accessed from the highway, and is actually easy to find, but the directions and the map on the website point to different places non of them being the cottage. There was a friendly man at the hotel nearby on the map that helped us.
The house is very clean and fully equiped. The beds are very comfortable with fluffy cushions and even though you are close to the highway you don't notice that. From the house you can easily access other villages at the lakes, and it's about 5 minutes from Kendal and a supermarket just incase you need to go out to get something. There's also a nice pub with fire at the bottom of the road.
When we left we cleaned and tidied the house leaving it as we believed was a good condition to our standards. When the owner saw the house he complained saying that we treated the house badly and that we had left a big mess, which apparently took his cleaners an extra 4 hours to clean. We believe his complaints were extreme and come from a very personal view of how the house had to be left. He also always referes to the website as outlyining how it should be left, but the website is very vague in comparison to what he wants. Part of his complaints incuded leaving clean dishes in the dish washer, not replacing toilet paper that was provided and not mopping our footprints on the tiled kitched floor. The only complaint that we thought may have been reasonable was that someone stepped on the carpet with their outdoor footwear once (the website suggests bring sandals. This is highly reccomended because of his reaction).
He provided pictures to prove his point but they were really bad and we couldnt really see what he was complaining about. He wanted £75 compensation, however we did not agree on this. He therefore did not return our £61 that were left from the deposit.
I would reccomend coming here only if you leave the place precisely as you found it.
we supply a 5 star produced and like it to be this way for ever guest
