Reviews

    Mature / Senior Couple Paul Skeates
    Burghfield Common, United Kingdom
    17 June 2015
    Rated as 4 out of 5

    “Good, bordering on very good.”

    Most ratings for Howscales would be average, bordering on very good but I've rated 3 rather than 4 in those areas.

    The location is superb, surrounded by open fields and beautiful views across to mountains, and close enough to Penrith and Carlisle to make both easy to access. Nearby Kirksoswald had an excellent shop and two excellent pubs.

    At £375 for the week, this represented great value for money, with a comfortable bed and a decent shower (major plus factors).

    On the negative side, the furniture was below par, being worn, messy and in need of replacement in the sitting area. A small TV, no video and no dishwasher were also not ideal, and some of the carpetted areas were in need of attention.

    Given that property is currently up for sale, this may explain a lack of investment in certain areas, but would certainly use again if in the area, and with a few improvements mentioned above, this property would warrant 5 stars without a doubt.

    Our host, Liz was most helpful.
