    “Good value but a couple of minor improvements wouk”

    It would be more useful to have a large sofa or even better sofa bed in the lounge. I know the sofa was updated a year or two ago but it's a pity it's so small. Also some ice cube trays and nonstick frying pans should be added. Current ones are a nightmare. We fried a bit of bacon but it was sticking even with using bit of oil. This set off the fire alarm. We tried to deactivate but the info in book for code next door was not up to date so had to ring George. The house was a little dusty around skirtings and corners and there was a few spiders lurking. I think this is unacceptable and the feather pillows are not hygienic for asthma sufferers. The rug in the larger bedroom needs chucking out and the carpet is very stained. We have been coming for years so it won't put us off but it may affect other people's decisions in this respect. Just a few minor things would update the property. Also instructions how to turn heating on/off or change timer would help. Still enjoyed it and thanks for the wine.

    Portinscale lies off the A66 just to the west of Keswick. From jct 40 on M6, take the A66 past Keswick, watch for the sign to turn left for Portinscale, Grange and Newlands Valley. On turning left follow road, past Farmers Arms on your left, and then after 200yds and where road goes right you turn left. We are then some 60yds on the left, immediately before the Derwentwater Hotel opposite.
