The cottage is in a wonderful location and provides all the amenities you need for a small family. Very comfortable and quite spacious! The staff in the hotel were very accommodating, I needed to print documents and then use the fax machine and they were very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble!
Very comfortable accommodation Bed in main bedroom very comfortable Easy to find Friendly and helpful staff Well-equipped kitchen and bathroom
The sofa bed wasn't particularly comfortable to sleep on. Wouldn't recommend anyone to sleep on it for more than a night or 2.
I stayed for 2 nights and loved every moment the cottage was great lots of room for me my wife and 2 boys one is12 and other 2 we went to most lakes while staying there and ulswater was the best the gardens at the hotel was nice to walk round and at some point would love to return again
Wifi was not great but at the end of the day that was good because we wasn't on phones all time
All of the benefits of very comfortable self catering accommodation with the advantage of a luxury hotel next door. Supper in the hotel bar was a good family friendly alternative to dinner in the restaurant. The meal was extremely good value and of fine dining quality. The staff were helpful and attentive and made us feel very welcome. Complimentary tea, jar of coffee, fresh milk, sugar, basket of logs all appreciated.
An earlier check in time would have been better. We couldn't access our cottage until 2.00pm. This meant changing into our walking clothes in the hotel loos so we could go for an afternoon hike and leaving our luggage and food shopping in the car until early evening when we returned.
Overall willow cottage was exceptional, very clean & tidy, beds so comfortable, lovely views of lake, nice little touches, i.e milk in fridge, tea, coffee, biscuits for our arrival & logs for the fire, very impressed can't fault, looking forward to return
Loved everything about this place thankyou ! Greeted by friendly staff the cottage was gorgeous definitely will return but for a longer break next time! Only fault was the wifi but actually....who cares when you go away for a complete chilled out couple of days!
Excellent, nothing bad to say whatsoever. Cottage was clean, tidy, a lot more spacious than the photos represent. Nearest supermarket (huge Sainsbury's) is about a 10 mins drive away and a stone's throw away from the lake. Perfect, would certainly stay again. (WiFi was a bit hit and miss, excellent in good weather but a bit spotty when heavy rain. But to be honest if you are bothered about not being able to access the Internet whilst being somewhere with such amazing views and environment then you need to take a good hard look at your life!)
1. Comforts of home in the cottage with a fully equipt and functional kitchen 2. Privacy of a cottage with only a next door Holly cottage neighbour 3. Private parking space right at the front of the cottage 4. Nice frontage with a view of the lake 5. Private estate with beautifully maintained gardens with wild roaming rabbits and yaks. 6. Access to the banks of the lake connected to the Rampsbeck property 7. A great escape from the urban London lifestyle 8. Clean and neatly maintained cottage that is rather newly refurbished (est. 2012). 9. Smooth and reliable booking through Booking.com 10. Friendly and quick check in and check out experience Note to tech savvy travellers (as at end Aug 2014). Although there is access to Rampsbeck free WiFi (may be throttled with access control) and BT paid WiFi services, it is not very reliable and weak in signal strength. Only patchy and super slow GPRS service available via the mobile phone. Normal mobile service for voice call is strong (above 4 signal bars). This is in the 'Like' section as it has a positive side effect on our family. It has forced us to forget our unconnected devices and instead, spending quality time bonding with the family!
Nothing really. Although you are practically not connected to the internet at the cottage, you could drive 6 miles to Penrith town centre for 3G access and other amenities.
We loved the decor and facilities in the cottage, the small kitchen was very well equipped. The views were amazing, both of the lake, and surrounding countryside.It was peaceful and relaxing. We will return for sure.
Modern and spacious cottage with beautiful views of Ullswater lake. Attached to the lovely Rampsbeck Hotel which provides fine dining. Lots of restaurants within a short drive and also only 5 mind from the Aira Force Waterfalls which is a must see. Would definitely come back here.
Great apartment and location for checking out the Lakes District
The roomy living room with a fantastic view! I could sit by the large corner window staring at the lake for hours! The cottage itself was plenty big for our family of 5, having two bedrooms. I'm sure we could have fit more. The staff was great and easy going (although we were not surprised by this, sometimes it's unusual for such a fancy hotel). Great location for ullswater activities! Easy parking. Lovely grounds and gardens.
Wifi was spotty.
The view and the accommodation.
Quiet and relaxing
Cottages are very well equipped and maintained. The location is in the quieter more rural part of the Lake District and has beautiful views across the water. Staff were very helpful and polite. There is limited parking outside the cottages but plenty in front of the main hotel which is about 100m away. Some coffee/tea, milk and sugar were provided. Good washing machine and dryer in the attached outbuilding (shared with the next door cottage).
Not a problem for us as we had some groceries but as the cottages are in a rural setting the shops for groceries are some distance away and have very limited food selection. Take some food along for first day breakfast etc or eat in the hotel. Wifi signal is weak (welcome to the country side - let go : )
The view and the location are really great we even couldn't have better than what we had. The staff are nice, kind and helpful. Briefly this accommodation is brilliant and outstanding.
Wi fi connection is quite poor
very new & clean, big washroom even for 6
no internet in the room, only can be connected in the reception
The property was absolutely gorgeous, perfect setting and very comfortable.
Beautiful location and view from cottage. Great facilities, warm and cosy and homely too.
Very cosy and well situated for our week of activities. We were impressed with the extra details such as the welcome facilities, tea, coffee etc and the bathroom towels were very luxurious. The cottage was very well equipped and spacious which made our stay very comfortable.
Storage in the kitchen was quite limited, a few more places to store food for the week would have been very helpful.
The cottage was well equipped and tastefully furnished.
Had to phone hotel re hot water both mornings. Plastic wine glasses. Another bathroom would have been good as there were 6 of us staying.
We stayed the Holly cottage and we loved every bits of it. It was fantastically located and everything was clean and comfortable.We would definitely visit there again.
