    Croft Cottage is a detached property, set in its own gardens in the tiny hamlet of Little Town. The hamlet only has eight houses including a working hill farm and the cottage itself is an excellent barn conversion, dating back several hundred years. Its location in a peaceful rural community contrasts with Keswick’s bustling activity with its shops, markets, museums, theatre and cinema only a short drive away.
    The cottage is equipped to the highest level with all the comforts you would expect in your own home. The spacious beamed lounge with its cosy wood burning stove has a picture window giving magnificent views up tot he top of Catbells, one of the Lake District’s most popular fells. In fact there are truly stunning views all round and you can walk from the doorstep onto the fells that form the Newlands Round or alternatively enjoy relaxing low level walks in the Valley or by the lakeshore.
    Quotes from our guests "Your cottage is by far the best we have ever stayed in in the UK – extremely clean, comfy and complete with all the facilities you could wish for. The scenery is spectacular and the ambience is something special "We’ve been visiting the Lakes as a group of friends at Whitsun for over 30 years and this has been the best week for accommodation so far!  We especially appreciated the comfort, taste and care shown in preparing the cottage - and not least the superbly laid out garden."

    A well equipped and homely family cottage in a beautiful spot. This cottage has proven ideal for a 2 week stay in the Lakes and we're discussing when we would like to return. The amenities are excellent, with a well equipped kitchen, a bijoux dinning room for 6, recently refurbished master bedroom with excellent en-suite facilities and a large living room. The living room includes a Blu-Ray player and Sky. Sky is also available in the master bedroom. There is Wi-Fi, but presently the speeds are sufficient for web browsing only (~1.5 Mbps download), so no streaming video on demand services. We found the Internet essential for trip planning, and also for voice calls given the lack of mobile phone signal around here. There is a BT telephone in the cottage which will cover emergency calls so no need to worry about the lack of mobile phones. There's a utility room with a really modern and decent washing machine, full height freezer, and a small football looking BBQ which we enjoyed using several times in the garden to the rear. The rear looks out onto Cat Bells over a field of sheep, and we did several walks from home with the children (except one...). Between booking and arriving, our eldest broke his leg rather spectacularly. Having decided we were still able to go on holiday, we had to phone ahead to ask about the amenities. Sylvia could not be more helpful with us checking how we could accommodate a now zimmer frame or wheel chair bound child. Being non-load bearing on one leg, our son did have to hop up the steps leading to the front door. There's a strong sturdy hand rail that enabled him to hop up the steps. Access proved easier via the back door after we moved the grating. BTW The back door is a good entrance for removing boots and racking them up in the utility room. Inside there's a single step up into the kitchen and separately into the hall leading to the bedrooms, both negotiated on a zimmer frame. Getting said child to the dinning room was made easier by being a family of 5 rather than 6, so we could shorten the table and remove two chairs from the dining room to make room for a wheel chair at the head of the table. In short, we coped with the facilities. One of our mitigations for a less mobile teenager afraid of what might happen to his leg in the outdoors was to bring the games console. The TV had a spare HDMI socket and whilst the Internet did not support Rocket League, he was kept amused by plenty of less Internet demanding games. The really awkward moment came after a thunder and lightning storm. Imagine the worry Sylvia must have had being in receipt of messages to stay we had been struck! We were woken in the night by the loudest thunder we had ever heard. In the morning I discovered the Internet down, and on investigating a fuse (RCD) for the utility room had tripped. The Utility room was a bit of a mess with four electrical points "blown", and plastic scattered. On the outside, some rendering had been propelled off leaving a circular cavity. Inside, the telephone was no longer working, the micro filter for the broadband had been "blown" apart and the BT Internet router no longer functioned. A few light bulbs came off the worse too. Sylvia was out of town some considerable distance away. We were able to relay pictures of the damage by WhatsApp from a location near Derwent Water that had just enough 4G. Within 24 hours the essentials had been made safe or restored! That's amazing. She had a network of people she could rely on to get things put right. A concerned neighbour called to check in with us. The electrician duly called twice and fixed the problems, and a new broadband router was ordered and appeared the next day. Communications restored. I'm still impressed by the speed of recovery. Some of the local attractions we tried include messing about on Derwent Water with kayaks and paddle boards from Derwent Marina, The Lake District Wildlife Park, Whinlatter Forest (and parkrun), Maryport Aquarium, and the Derwent Pencil Museum in Keswick was a favourite of our daughter. We enjoyed our meal at the Swinside Inn about 1.6 miles down the road. It is worth pointing out that the roads leading to Littletown are narrow with passing places. Most cars are cooperative and the routes are similar to driving the back roads in Cornwall. Croft Cottage is opposite a farm where we were able to watch the lambs being sheared just in time for day of record breaking temperatures.

    This is the 2nd visit to Croft Cottage, it is absolutely beautiful. If you want to get away from it all this is the place to go. There is a fab farmyard cafe across the road but no local shop etc you have to go to Keswick for that. However that is its charm, there are at least 10 walks from the cottage so you don't even have to get in your car if you don't want to! The cottage has everything, the views are stunning and the whole place is immaculate. We will be going back again.

    Stunning location, gorgeous cottage equipped with everything you could need, cozy & warm thanks to heating pre-set & ease of adjusting if needed. Would thoroughly recommend staying here, fully enclosed garden for the dog (altho can't guarantee their reaction to the sheep lol)

    Croft Cottage is ideal for those who want to walk the Fells straight from the door without the need to drive and locate car parks. The facilities and equipment provided catered for all our needs. Although the week we booked was probably the worst weather conditions in the last 6 months, I still managed to get out walking on 5 of the days we stayed.

    Well appointed and comfortable cottage in a stunning location! We had an amazing holiday at Croft Cottage. It was exceedingly well equipped with everything you need for a holiday including comfortable beds and wonderful views! The location was fantastic with lots of walks right on your doorstep and a great pub a short drive up the road. Highly recommended!
