Room is actually bigger than it looks on the photo with a TV on the table by the sink. Close to town and use of the kitchen was great. The shower was also good as lots of room and pretty powerful.
The experience was (website hidden) and Martin welcomed me and were very accommodating to my rather unpredictable schedule. The room was clean, cheery and very comfortable. The hosts were fantastic.
What Jo and Martin have done to their house to make a comfortable Airbnb experience is remarkable. Truly a unique property tailored specifically to the discerning Airbnb (website hidden) made us feel welcome, comfortable and invited us for a glass of wine in her colorful garden. Martin arranged to borrow some internet from his neighbors whilst his service was interrupted during our stay. We felt trusted and respected by the both of them as guests in their home.
All amenities were satisfactory and staying with Martin and Jo was easy and comfortable in the midst of our UK tour. We were able to meet other guests from Shanghai during breakfast that were staying in another of the 3 rooms and shared bathroom that are available from Jo and Martin. Always a bonus.
Joe and Martin are Airbnb professionals...
What a gem! We absolutely loved (email hidden)'s. Cute dog, great advice on dining etc, nice breakfast conversations, lovely atmosphere. Super nice and very welcoming!
Really lovely house and room. The view from the window at the top was wonderful. We were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed a chat with Martin in the morning bover breakfast. We would definitely stay here again.
A wonderfully friendly and warm welcome - just what we needed after a long drive. The house is lovely, we slept well in a beautiful room in a good bed, enjoyed the view and left in the morning feeling totally satisfied and refreshed. Thanks Jo!
Martin made us feel very welcome right from the beginning, and gave very useful information on walks around the Lake District, and places to eat around town. The rooms and kitchen are very cosy and homely, so it was a joy to get back to after a long day. We would definitely like to come back again.
