From the owner

Townend is a spacious, renovated 18th century farmhouse with curved “ships rib” beams, central heating, updated kitchen and bedrooms in a beautiful, tranquil setting with its own enclosed garden/patio and on-site parking for 3 cars. 5 minutes off M6 Jn41. Great walks and cycle rides from the doorstep. A couple of minutes walk to the river Petteril/Laithes village playground and 15 minutes walk to the excellent Sun Inn riverside pub, serving good food and local ales.

Downstairs there is a large, cosy lounge/dining room with wood burner and TV, a laundry/utility, small conservatory/"dog bedroom" and recently updated kitchen with new oven, microwave and washing m/c. Also the "Studio" which is a great kids retreat with stereo music center and wide screen TV/DVD player/selection of movies and toilet.

Upstairs there are three large bedrooms, the very spacious master with new en-suite and oak King size bed, the second bedroom has a double bed and en-suite and both have great views out to the hills. The third bedroom has a double and a movable single bed, making it ideal either for couples or kids who prefer to sleep in separate beds. It is serviced by the new family bath/shower room with toilet. All bedrooms overlook the elevated garden and patio.

Freshly washed and sterilised bed linen and towels are provided.

Townend is located in Laithes, just 10 minutes drive from the Lake District National Park, 5 minutes from historic Greystoke Castle (Tarzan fame etc) and approximately 10 minutes from the market town of Penrith.

This is an excellent base for walks and cycle rides (it is on the Coast to Coast route) and to explore the Ullswater/Derwentwater/Bassenthwaite lakes and hills area and some of the quieter corners of the Lake District.

Hi Daniel Many thanks for your review- much appreciated. You and family are welcome back any time! Yes wifi is specifically mentioned in the details as not being available. Re-phone connection: Townend is in a "dip" in the hills but mobile phone connection is generally OK upstairs in the bedrooms. Im there now and whilst only 2 out of 4 bars, its working fine.

Owner's reply:
Hi, sorry that Townend did not meet your expectations. We have discussed your issues in detail by email and explained that our normal cleaning staff were not available to prepare the house for your arrival, which led to some of these issues, for which we apologise again. We have otherwise had positive and well balanced reviews. Bed comfort, even with new mattresses, never suits all and you omitted to mention the great bedrooms and bathrooms that you referred to so positively in email dialogue. We always respond to aspects raised for improvement and have upgraded the pillows, cooking equipment, purchased a higher performance vacuum cleaner along with the other household items that you highlighted. The current guests have expressed full satisfaction with the property and we continue to gain experience from each visit. Many thanks. Best regards Martin
