“Great place to stay”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2017

Our family had a wonderful time here, the place was immaculate on arrival and has everything you need to enjoy your stay.

We aim to ensure that each guest finds the cottage perfectly presented and "immaculate" so that the holiday can start straight away. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Best regards, Bev

“Ash Gill Cottage. Lovely house, good location, great local pubs, very lovely scenery”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2017

The location of house was just right for us. Close enough to Coniston to get there easily. Quiet and peaceful. House was lovely. Everything we wanted. Nice garden. Two lovely pubs within 200 metres. Great food at pubs. Lovely walks close by and lovely scenery.

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and found everything that you needed in the house. We are lucky to have two fantastic pubs on the doorstep, serving great food and local beers. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards Bev

“Fabulous house”

Reviewed 28 May 2017

Fantastic stay in this lovely spacious house. Very clean, modern and with everything we needed. Very good value for money

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time review Ash Gill Cottage. We're glad that you had a great time enjoying the area and the fantastic weather that you had for your family celebrations. We are pleased that you found everything that you needed in the house for your stay and we hope to welcome you all back in the future. Best regards Bev

“Ideal for Us”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2017

We stayed at Ashgill for 3 days following the Easter break. The cottage is as described and well cared for. A nice bottle of wine and welcome card was much appreciated.The cottage was larger than expected and very clean with comfy beds. Very close to the Wilson Arms and the Church House Inn both of which were very welcoming and excellent food. Just 5 minutes in to Coniston and i recommend Saras Indian restaurant which does eat in and take away. As a rental home owner myself(Florida) i can say that Bev and Paul have hit the nail on the head!

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to post a wonderful review of your stay. The house is deceptively spacious and we do aim to ensure it is as comfy and as clean as we can possibly achieve. Having two great pubs within 150yds, serving generous portions of good food is a bonus for those who don't want to cook or for those looking to try locally brewed beers. We are grateful that you think we've 'hit the nail on the head' and hope to welcome you back in the future. Best regards Bev

“Excellent!! Would highly recommend!!”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2016

We just spent 5 days and absolutely loved it. The house was spotless and very clean. Our 4 young children loved every minute of it and would come back and stay here again without hesitation. The card and bottle of wine from the owners was a very nice touch and made us feel very welcome there. Thanks again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review of your stay at Ash Gill. We strive to present the house in perfect condition and are glad you arrived to a spotlessly clean and welcoming house. It is wonderful to learn that your children had a fantastic time and we look forward to welcoming you all back again in the future. Kind regards, Bev.

“it does not get better than this”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2014

we booked this accomodation online in australia. It was every bit as good as the pictures looked. every thing was provided and more.we would not hesitate to recomend this cottage to anyone.just remember to take the torch with you at night to the pub.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your wonderful review of Ash Gill Cottage. We are glad that the photos show an accurate representation of the house and it's facilities, which is always great for any future guests wishing to book also. We hope you enjoyed your trip and glad that you found everything you needed, and yes we agree, a torch is a 'must-have' as it does get incredibly dark up in Torver - great for stargazing and meteor showers in clear dark skies. We hope you had a great journey back to Australia and if you're ever back in the UK, I hope we can welcome you back once again. Best regards, Bev and Pete

“Great trip to a fantastic cottage”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2014

A party of 6 of us stayed for 3 weeks as part of a university geology project working and walking in the local Coniston fells. The cottage itself is well situated as a base for walking into the fells (and the Old Man of Coniston) and the Torver deli & The Wilsons Arms pub are great facilities to have nearby in the village. There is good access to Coniston & further afield to the Duddon Valley, Ambleside & Windermere by road - there is easily room for 2 cars at the cottage. The cottage is well and recently furnished as the photographs suggest with a large and comfortable combined living and dining area and a modern kitchen on the ground floor with a large hallway to store boots, coats & bags, etc. There are 2 twin rooms and a master bedroom (with double bed) upstairs which are again well furnished. There is an ensuite with shower connected to the master bedroom and a separate bathroom - both modern and well furnished. The house was kept clean (despite of 6 university students) by a weekly cleaner. All in all, we had a great trip & were really impressed by the quality of the cottage. Recommended.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking time out to write a wonderful review of your longer than usual stay with us. It is fantastic to learn that the house can deliver a comfortable, normal day to day living experience by 6 adults staying longer than the usual weekend or week long visit, and serves as an ideal base for those who wish to explore the delights that Lakeland and the local area has to offer. We are glad that you would recommend us, it was indeed a pleasure to welcome you to the local community for your time with us (our local quizmaster for the Sunday night quiz enjoyed your regular attendance). We hope that you completed your projects in good time and wish you much success with them and your future studies. We also hope to welcome you back to Torver and Ash Gill Cottage at some point in the future. Kindest regards to you all. Bev and Pete

“Very spacious, good quality accommodation in Torver”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2014

This was our 17th stay at Ash Gill cottage, which says it all really! Super location with the Wilson Arms pub for food & refreshment nearby and lots of lovely walks from the house, including the Old Man of Coniston and Coniston Lake. The house is really well equipped with super furniture & furnishings. A luxury family bathroom plus ensuite & downstairs loo makes it easy for 6 people to stay very comfortably. We always have a great time!

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a wonderful review. We're glad you enjoyed your recent visit, your 17th year at Ash Gill, you're all practically locals!! With larger parties it is important to us to ensure that all guests are accommodated comfortably and are pleased you find Ash Gill to fit the bill. We have already booked out your favourite week for next year and look forward to welcoming you back once again. Best Regards, Bev and Pete, Stuart and Dorothy

“eighteen years and counting....”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2014

We enjoyed our eighteenth stay at Ash Gill, and that should be a good endorsement of itself. We are all keen walkers, and Ash Gill provides superb access to the surrounding fells. The village has two pubs and it is great to stroll to one - in two minutes - for good beer, wines and food, after a rewarding day outside. The house facilities are good, recently updated, and our hosts invariably helpful. How long can we keep going?

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for taking the time to review your 18th visit with us last May, and we are also pleased you have enjoyed the upgrading of facilities within the house last year. Being able to leave the car at 'home', whether to access the surrounding fells or the delights of the local pub, still prove to be popular motivations for our most loyal returning guests, who really, are considered friends of the family. We are so pleased you continue to enjoy your holidays at Ash Gill and we look forward to welcoming you all back to Torver again soon. To the next 18 years.......Cheers! Fondest Regards to you and all of your family. Pete and Bev, Stuart and Dorothy.
