“Fantastic views, comfortable and spacious accommodation”
Reviewed March 25, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Lovely, spacious cottage in a fantastic location in our favourite area of the Lake District.
Many walks from the door and 2 pubs a short stroll away. Well stocked village shop across the road.

As there was only 4 of us, we had plenty of room to spread out and store our muddy boots and wet coats. Yes, it rained the whole time we were there!! The wood burner came in very handy and made the lounge very cosy indeed. We also really appreciated being able to bring our pet Labrador, Harry, along too. He loved the wood burner!!

My only request would be for Warren to get some better glasses. A matching set of wine glasses and some champagne flutes would be nice!!

All in all, I can thoroughly recommend this lovely cottage and we will definitely be back again soon.

Many thanks for the review. I'm really pleased you and Harry enjoyed the cottage. It's a pity that you had some damp weather - but I guess that's part of the gamble with the Lake District.

Not too long ago, there was a matching set ( I think 6 or 8) wine glasses together with the old odds and sods which I couldn't bring myself to throw out. But, it sounds that we've had some breakages which unfortunately we haven't spotted. I'll get another set to bring us back up to stock.

As for champagne flutes, I can't see them lasting very long! But, for a special occasion I can see why they would be a great, so maybe I'll get some and put them in a higher cupboard so people only go for them when there is a champagne occasion.

Thanks for the feedback and hope to see you back soon.

“Perfect pet friendly cottage”
Reviewed January 5, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed for Christmas 2016 and it was fantastic week, fabulous location, well stocked shop and a dog friendly pub only 250m way, tonnes of walks straight from the cottage so no need to drive anywhere but still in the heart of The Lakes not far to drive if you wanted to. Cottage had everything you could possibly need and with four adults, 2 teenagers and a child there was plenty of room for everyone (even with the Christmas tree up!). Bedrooms were great, cottage was warm all the time and plenty of games to keep us entertained. Warren has been wonderful and we would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay.

Many thanks for your review Nathalie and so pleased you enjoyed your Christmas stay at the cottage. It's always nice to get feedback on the location as well as the cottage as other guests have also said that they could easily leave their car parked up for their time there if they wish and still find plenty of walks to go on whilst at the same time there are plenty of other areas of the Lakes to explore within a short drive. Thanks again Warren.

“Lovely, cosy and tranquil cottage”
Reviewed November 16, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed here at the beginning of November for my Mums' 70th Birthday. The cottage was just as described and was a great base for a weekend away. The kitchen was fully stocked and there was nothing we were short of. The cottage was lovely and warm and the log burner was a great asset on a cool Autumn night. The Wainwright Pub across the road was great even though a little busy, especially on bonfire night. We took a lovely walk to Grasmere which was helped by the variety of maps that are in the cottage. Only negatives have been said before about another bathroom but that was not too much of a problem for us.
I would recommend the Old Postmasters to families and friends and hope to visit again.

Many thanks for the kind review and thank you for choosing my cottage for such a special weekend. Plans are still afoot for a basement loo/shower room but I think my plumber masquerades as the scarlet pimpernel as a final price and design is proving very difficult to nail down. Hopefully, we'll have it all in by the time you hopefully return for you Mum's 71st birthday! Warren

“Home from home”
Reviewed October 23, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This cottage is all as it is advertised and more . Warren the owner has really tried to think of everything to make your holiday in this beautiful part of the world hastle free . The kitchen is well equipped with washing machine & dish washer included , only negative comment was there was no empty cupboard to put food away - but there was plenty of surface space . In the lower ground floor there is a well equipped games room with TV and computer games , a cupboard full of board games etc . Brilliant for families and rainy days . The quilts were really comfy and we slept well every night . The only downside ( though not for us as a couple ) , is there is only one bathroom ( with bath , shower and WC ) , and a separate toilet - but all on the top floor . This could prove a problem for a full house especially in getting everyone out in the morning , and fir those in rooms on the lower ground . The living room has a lovely log burning stove - not that we needed it as the storage heaters kept the house warm . There is an array of maps and walking books provided and Warren was happy to suggest places to eat , visit etc . The cottage is in a lovely village , with lots of walks from the front door and 2 pleasant pubs within walking distance . Would definitely use this again .

Fiona, thanks for the review and your comments all noted.

I did have to take one wall cupboard out when I bought the new tall fridge freezer - ironically that was after some guests had rightly pointed out the cottage could do with a bigger one. Anybody reading this can see the old arrangement on the photo on the webpage. That removed cupboard was the main 'food' cupboard. The one next to it has a little space but I accept it's probably not enough. And all the others I have filled with crockery, pots, pans, cookware and various other handy stuff. I will re-arrange the cupboards to try and get one completely empty one for food.

The second bathroom planning has been ongoing for some while and I now have a plumber who is confident he can get a water supply & drainage connection to it. He just needs to liaise with an electrician to confirm the ventilation arrangement - a bathroom without ventilation is not a pleasant place to be!! I'll give him a chase and see when we can get it all installed. Many thanks for staying at the cottage and I hope you will return again one day. W

“A home from home”
Reviewed September 20, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We loved staying in the Old Post Office. It is perfectly situated in the lovely village of Chapel Stile. This is a tardis of a house. Spacious and well presented. It has a lovely homely feel and we were very happy with our stay. The village stores are next door and the Wainwright Pub served amazing food and had a great atmosphere. We really didn't want to leave.

Many thanks for the kind review. My place hasn't been called a tardis before, but I get where you're coming from! Ha - just wait until I put in an attic bedroom! Good to hear Wainwrights is still up to scratch - I'm looking forward to the off season so I can pop up there myself. Cheers W

Quiet location, not too far from amenities. Looked forward to seeing the sheep walking pass the window in the morning.
Enjoyed a game of pool everyday.

When looking for a property in the Lakes we look for a traditional, cosy cottage where we can leave the car behind to explore. This was just what we were looking for. Warren gave us so much information before we arrived which was delivered with a taste of fun. Very close to both a shop which was extremely well stocked and had very friendly staff and the local pub, Wainwrights which was very welcoming at the end of the long car journey and long days out walking. However the cottage was also very hard to leave due to comfortable surroundings. Well equipped games room which was enjoyed by all. Plenty of room for parking. We have already told other members of our family who are hoping to visit soon. Thank you for letting us use your home.

Thank you very much for the review Teresa. Good to hear the shop & pub are still on form. I always try and find an excuse to pop into the shop whenever I visit - there's a few characters in there! Hope to see you back soon. Warren
