    Braithwaite is a good location for walks, however, Croft Cottage is not situated in what we would call an ideal location. It is on a busy road with people and traffic (including double decker buses) passing constantly which does not make it dog friendly; and definitely not the quiet peaceful country cottage we were hoping for. The busy location should be made clear in the description. The key box was at the back door so we accessed the cottage using this door straight into the kitchen area which was quite spacious and well equipped. However, the kitchen window overlooks neighbours unkempt concrete area, their wheelie bins, their kitchen window and the busy road outside. Downstairs had an unclean smell about it, furniture dated and room dark - the windows need a good clean. Upstairs was clean, tidy and pleasant but you had to keep the bedroom blind closed due to people/traffic/neighbours overlooking. Accessing via the front door not clear and needs to be better explained in the description. The key box was at the back door we therefore automatically used this access. When we realised that the front door could be accessed we felt discouraged from doing so by the wheelie bins being parked in the garden gateway and next door's car parked across gateway. From the road you couldn't see this access. There was a garden/yard area accessed by the front door but this was overlooked by the other neighbour's windows. This outside area was shaded with no sunshine at any point in the day. The garden furniture old and uncomfortable. Sorry but very disappointed with this property.

    We have stayed here several times. We love Braithwaite, the Osprey project and Whinlatter park. The property is comfortable and has some good features like the utility room and garden. It is easy to park outside or near the property.

    The cottage is ideally located for walking, pubs and places to eat. The main complaint was that there was no landline despite having checked with Cumbrian Cottages prior to arrival. My father-in-law had been taken ill just before our visit and it would gave been much less stressful to have a phone as my mobile didn't have 100% reception. The cottage was very well equipped but the TV was difficult to work out with 2 remotes and vague instructions. Having said this, everywhere was spotless and we enjoyed our stay.

    This is a lovely cottage in a great location. It is cosy yet spacious and extremely well equipped. It’s Ideally placed for exploring the lakes, fells and valleys with many lovely walks on your doorstep. It’s also only a short distance from the lovely town of Keswick and it’s many attractions and an easy drive from other towns and villages such as Cockermouth, Windermere, Buttermere etc. we had a wonderful week here and because the kitchen is such a good size and equipped with anything you could possibly need for self catering we were happy to eat in most evenings, which we found easier with our dog. If you do want to eat out there are are two excellent pubs and a restaurant in Braithwaite itself. The village shop is very convenient and reasonably priced and stocks most of what you might need with two major supermarkets located in nearby Keswick . We would definitely recommend Braithwaite as a good base for a holiday in the lakes and I doubt you’d be able to find a more comfortable and well equipped cottage anywhere.
