“Excellent cottage”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is an excellent cottage - extremely well-equipped and clean. The location is perfect as a base for visiting the Lakes. Highly recommended!

Thank you for your lovely review. We are fortunate to have a fantastic housekeeper who presents the cottage to the highest standards and even luckier to be located in such a beautiful area of the South Lakes, with walks direct from the doorstep and many sights to see within easy driving distance.
Kind regards,
Bev

“Immaculately presented”
Reviewed June 28, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Six of our family members stayed at Ash Gill for a reunion. We felt welcome from the start as a bottle of wine had been left together with a welcome card. The cottage is spotlessly clean and well furnished. The kitchen is superbly equipped, together with dishwasher and washing machine. Chopped wood was provided for the open fire which we enjoyed on the cold evenings. The property lived up to expectations from the description on the website. The only negative was the mattresses in the back bedroom which we found uncomfortable. Bev, the owner, got straight on to this with a short-term solution (mattress topper) and a longer term solution (replacing the mattresses), so this will not be an issue for future lets. We can thoroughly recommend Ash Gill, its location in a good spot for Coniston etc. and the Wilson Arms down the road, an excellent place to eat.

Thank you for taking the time to post a wonderful review. Guest comfort and cleanliness is of paramount importance to us and following your observations we immediately sorted the comfort issue you identified for future guests. We welcome guests reviews and observations when fully occupied to ensure the house is the best we can achieve. We are glad you enjoyed the facilities of the house, a log burner is lovely when the weather turns a bit chilly.
Kind regards

“Fabulous Stay”
Reviewed May 10, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

My sister and I stayed with our children. The cottage was absolutely gorgeous, so clean, beautifully equipped, I can honestly say there was nothing that the owners had not already thought of. The log fire was lovely and welcoming after a long walk. We had a lovely few days in stunning cottage with views to match. The pub over the road, what more can I say, the food quality and portion sizes were amazing. We will definitely stop here again if ever we visit the Lakes again.

Thank you for taking the time to post a wonderful review of your stay with us at Christmas.
We are glad that you enjoyed the 'Christmas treats' that we left for you and that the house was lovely and warm, there were a few days where it was quite chilly outside.
Our house manager takes great pride in presenting the house for our guests and will appreciate your wonderful comments.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Ash Gill Cottage in Torver.

Thank you for your wonderful review of Ash Gill Cottage.
We are glad that the photos show an accurate representation of the house and it's facilities, which is always great for any future guests wishing to book also.
We hope you enjoyed your trip and glad that you found everything you needed, and yes we agree, a torch is a 'must-have' as it does get incredibly dark up in Torver - great for stargazing and meteor showers in clear dark skies.
We hope you had a great journey back to Australia and if you're ever back in the UK, I hope we can welcome you back once again.
Best regards,
Bev and Pete

Thank you for taking time out to write a wonderful review of your longer than usual stay with us.
It is fantastic to learn that the house can deliver a comfortable, normal day to day living experience by 6 adults staying longer than the usual weekend or week long visit, and serves as an ideal base for those who wish to explore the delights that Lakeland and the local area has to offer.
We are glad that you would recommend us, it was indeed a pleasure to welcome you to the local community for your time with us (our local quizmaster for the Sunday night quiz enjoyed your regular attendance). We hope that you completed your projects in good time and wish you much success with them and your future studies.
We also hope to welcome you back to Torver and Ash Gill Cottage at some point in the future.
Kindest regards to you all.
