    “overall enjoyable”

    Our stay was overall very good, we found the house neatly arranged on arrival. The bed was really comfortable and all the beddings and linen were spotless and fresh. Hosts had also provided a instruction guide for most things and a local Borrowdale history guide which we felt was a nice touch. There were no odd smells in the house and it felt fresh and welcoming.

    The cleanliness of the house and its content while more or less good, could have been a bit better. For e.g. many of the utensils like plates, pots, bowls and spoons were a tad dusty and we had to wash all the utensils before using them. Also, we found several spiders in the bath tub's sinkhole in the bathroom and cobwebs on the ceiling. On one occasion we found strands of human hair in the microwave oven.

    The heating worked flawlessly and although we don't mind paying for electricity usage, an instructional note on how to top up the electricity meter (an old style analog meter) would have been really helpful. Also, there were no instructions on how to turn on hot shower in the bathroom so the first morning we had to make do with heating water in kettle as the hosts were out of town.

    Having said all that, everything else was brilliant and we would fully recommend Borrowdale Self Catering and would stay again whenever we come back to Borrowdale in the future. Full value for money.
