A LOVELY HOUSE by Mrs Kempner, SAFFRON WALDEN, July 2016 on November 30th 2016

Lovely house & situation, would return. Great to be opposite the pool, which was used at least twice a day. We also loved wandering the estate & exploring the shores of Lake Windermere. A great week, lovely house & situation, would return.

Very helpful site manager and support staff. Lovely quiet location with walking access to the surrounding estate. Close to shop and pubs in Hawkshead.Straightforwrd access from M6. Good location for straightforward access to the rest of The Lakes. Good facilities, especially the pool for the little ones, tumble dryer for post-walk washing.

Really nice cottage in fabulous getaway location. It was very clean with everything we needed for a large family gathering. We really enjoyed having a swimming pool on site. A wonderful part of the country and we were extremely lucky and the sun shone all week!
