The apartment above was occupied and you could hear every footstep also they had two small dogs that barked all the time.. When they left it was better. Also there are two doors to the apartment one has no curtain so every one can see in. This is not a new problem Looking through the visitors book both these had been mentioned many times.

The booking process was quick and easy and the description of Saddleback was quite accurate, however there were a few points to raise.. The allocated parking place is in a ridiculous spot. I was asked to move my car early Tuesday morning because the bin lorry couldn’t access the rear of the owners main property, The Wilson pub. In doing this , with the ‘help’ of the lorry driver ,I managed to back into a wall which is now going to cost me . Also a previous visitor had stated that the shower head attached to the wall wasn’t working which I can confirm was true , although the ceiling mounted one , was. This wet room lived up to its name as it does get soaked when you have a shower . If anyone then has the need to use the room for anything else e.g using the toilet, having a shave, they then are walking on a very wet floor . I think a squeegee of some description should be made a available. A broom for the rest of the property would also come in handy . The property is in quite a convenient spot for touring the Lakes but I will certainly not be making use of it again.

Cottage was clean, warm and had everything that we needed.. In addition there was fresh bread, milk and butter waiting for us....a lovely touch. The location itself has easy access to lots of good local walks including round Coniston lake. The local pubs are welcoming and the staff very friendly, pub food looked very tasty.

We love Torver so situation was key.. The flat was perfectly located. The kitchen was well equipped and I cooked roast dinner every day without the need for anything.The bed was to die for as was the wet room. I couldn't really fault the place. We were out all day and then in the pub so didn't really hear any noise from the upstairs apartment and could only hear the hot tub when we were in the bathroom. Sat in the beer garden so didn't need the outside space. We normally rent a cottage but will be using Saddleback again. We didn't personally need anything from the staff but watching them help other residents I couldn't fault them. We had a perfect stay.

Friendly hosts, a great and cosy pub, an apartment reasonably appointed.. However, the dishwasher was full on our arrival, which questions how well or efficiently this apartment was checked and cleaned before our arrival. A washing machine would have been helpful. Most cottages these days have one. Sadly, all the positive elements were off-set by the intermittent and irritating noise of the motor from the hot tub on the balcony above, which sounded right through our apartment. This is kept running 9am-9pm every day!! It spoilt what would have been a most enjoyable, peaceful and tranquil holiday in lovely surroundings. For that reason alone I will not be returning or recommending it to my friends or family.

Saddleback cottage is ok if you don't mind noise from the upstairs apartment.. The couches in saddleback and herdwick are practical but not very comfortable as we stayed in herdwick in December. The hot tub which came on at 9am and off at 9pm was very noisy and is situated on the balcony of the herdwick but we think there was a problem with it and reported it to the staff in the Wilson's pub. The staff in Wilson's pub and the church house inn were very nice and both pubs dog friendly.

Would have liked a bit more privacy as no certains for doors on a ground floor .... Would have liked a bit more privacy as no certains for doors on a ground floor flat and thought we had own yard to back but was open to back off pud was mainly for dogs We had a lovely time and enjoyed it very much but next time will have t try one of the cottages with the hot tub ha

The apartment was lovely but the noise from the apartment above made it so that it wasn't quite as a relaxing holiday as we'd have wanted.. We could hear the hot tub, foot fall, chairs moving, the TV and the other guests talking from the apartment above. It would have also been good to have the court yard out the back of the apartment fenced off so dogs could be let outside without worrying about them wandering off. The location was great for those staying in South Lakes with the Old Man of Coniston on the door step. The pub that the apartment is associated with was a real gem. The staff were super friendly and helpful, made us and our dog feel welcome. The food was good and they serve a cracking pint with a lovely roaring fire. It was really good to see the locals from Torver supporting their local too. I reckon if they could sort out the noise issue from the apartment from the above and fence off the court yard then it would be a cracker for those wanting to stay in the South Lakes with their dog.

We love this location, and have used cottages provided by the Wilsons Arms before.. This one was equally good.
