Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do you accept card payments?

Yes, all major cards are accepted. There is no extra charge for Debit/Credit Cards and cheques. (Sorry we don’t accept American Express).

What’s provided?

We try to provide just about everything you should need. Two tea towels will be in the kitchen along with a starter pack that includes: washing liquid, kitchen roll, toilet roll, basic cleaning products and a few dishwasher tabs if the property you are staying in has a dishwasher. This is just to ‘start you off’; you will need to buy your own once these have run out. Please see the full cottage inventory for further information. We use Eco and Fair Trade products as much as possible.

Are towels and linen provided?

Towels and linen are included in the price you pay. All beds in your property will be made up ready along with 1 hand and 1 bath towel per person. At Good Life Lake District Cottages we feel quite strongly about the environment and recycling. Therefore we’d like to ask guests to help us in not wasting energy, by putting all their used towels into the bath or shower before departure. This means only towels that are dirty will get washed!! Likewise, if you haven’t used all the bedrooms, we would very much appreciate it if you could let us know on your ‘Comments form’.

Can we bring our dog?

Dogs are welcome in the majority of our cottages, although we do charge £20 per dog per week / part week. Please do not leave pets unsupervised in our cottages, they are in an unfamiliar place and if they fret whilst you are away they can cause damage. Don’t let them sit on any furniture / beds etc. It’s a good idea to bring a basket or blanket for them to sleep on. Any extra cleaning required due to pets (including the garden), will be charged for.

What do I need to bring?

  • Cot bedding (if required).
  • Dog bed and or blankets to cover the floor where they will sleep.

Are heating / fuel / electric charges included?

Heating and electric is included with the rental money. Although we reserve the right to charge extra if an excessive amount over and above what would be expected. We do monitor electric & fuel use by taking regular meter readings.

Do we have to pay for cleaning?

No, your cottage is cleaned in between each let, this is included in the rental. We ask guests to leave a cottage as they find it though, with empty bins and clean pots. We would also ask you to put used towels into the bath or shower base.

What happens if we can’t get something to work?

A full information pack with user instructions is in each property, but if you can’t get something to work we are happy to assist you. Please call the Good Life office or the housekeeper, you'll find contact details in the holiday cottage information folder. 

Can we order food?

Langdale Coop do food packs. Tesco & Asda although not local, do deliver to our holiday cottages.
