We always aim to provide, not only the perfect base for your holiday in the Lakes, but the perfect service and personal touch to ensure you make the most of your time in the Lake District.
Very comfortable cottage - especially the sofas and beds. There were 3 generations of us and the downstairs bedroom was ideal for grandparents as we weren’t on top of the grandchildren. It would also be ideal for a baby or people with mobility issues.
The location is ideal for our favourite bars and restaurants in addition to the bus stop!
We hope to return next year.
Our second or third visit for our family group to The Firs and we had another lovely weekend. We had a couple of issues with curtains and blinds but our feedback was gratefully received when passed to Brathay cottages.
Superb location and accomodation great for a large family group.

the first ensuite room on the first floor,the shower door did not fit properly and the glass was loose.
the hot water tap in the second bedroom had a fault and the door would not close.
overall, excellent location ,good place to stay.

Where is one supposed top get logs for the fire at half ten at night!!!
I was recompensed with a bottle of fizz and mulled wine, oh great...
- Great location

- Living room furniture is terrible. The weather was poor during our stay so we spent quite a bit of time in the property and the sofa/chairs are so uncomfortable and not suitable at all for 6 adults. They could do a lot more with the room (larger sofas, furniture to fill the huge gap under the tv, maybe a rug) to really improve the overall feel of the house. For this reason alone we wouldn’t return.
- Some of the house required maintenance. Paint scuffs are expected but the chest of drawers downstairs only had 3 out of 6 ...more
