“Good except the shower!”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Ben Place is a lovely cottage. It is well equipped, everything you need to self cater in the kitchen. Having the sitting room upstairs gives you a lovely view. The position, about a 10 minute walk across the field to the village is perfect. There is however one downside, the shower. The water pressure is almost non-existent. Running a bath was a lengthy process (half an hour for a worthwhile amount) and having a shower was pointless. Washing my shoulder length hair was a painful process and just took too long.

This is a lovely cottage but we would be reluctant to return because the simple act of being able to have a shower was frustrating and time consuming.

Hi Chris, thanks for your review of Ben Place Cottage. We are glad that you liked the cottage, the location and the views to Helm Crag. However we are really sorry about your issues with the hot water pressure and wish you had let us know during your stay, as we would have tried to resolve. This problem is now resolved and we hope that you'll pay a return visit at some time in the future to give us another chance. All best wishes, Wendy and Hugh Taylor.
