There’s no parking, so a warning to be prepared to pay £3 for 2 hrs at the car park across the road, or some other helpful advice, would be good.. The last email we got, a week before arriving, said the host would be ‘available to greet you from 17:00’ so we expected to get the keys from a person. The number on the email was a call centre and completely unhelpful and it took much exhausted searching on the doorstep through email archives (no internet till we got inside!) and the fortunate assistance of some other chance-met guests to figure out the ‘keysafe’ system and get it to work. We’d have given up on it if we weren’t stranded and desperate by now. Very sticky and awkward to open, needed 3 hands!
Not a bad apartment though pricey, maybe that’s just the Lake District for you. Nice bathroom, good location, decent hot water system. Kitchen was adequate EXCEPT oven didn’t work (wasted a whole frozen meal) which is poor for a not-cheap self-catering apartment. The ‘appliance book’ didn’t have an oven page. Stove top worked. Cafetière spout was broken, which we didn’t notice till after we made/wasted the coffee.
The bedroom was nice (good view out the window) though the bed was uncomfortably soft for our taste. We had to strip the bed and bag up all the towels and linens (supposedly due to covid !?), as well as put all the crockery/cutlery/pans in the dishwasher before leaving, which was ok (if not quite expected at the price) except you also have to be gone by 9am!
We didn’t try the TV so can’t comment. Wi-fi was good.
