The scenery in this area is stunning with a backdrop of the imposing Skiddaw seen from the front of the house. There are three local pubs within a couple of miles serving good food and an excellent selection of locally produced ales. Just 200 yards along the road you’ll find the Lakes Distillery, set in converted farm buildings; a great attraction offering tasting tours showcasing its gin, vodka and whisky, a shop selling its produce and also a great bistro. For the family, why not try The Lake District Wildlife Park with over 100 species of animals, a great day out for all the family featuring live talks on the animals at feeding times and a bird of prey show not to be missed.

The area is also home to indigenous red squirrels and weasels which often make a welcome appearance in the garden. Further afield you will find Cockermouth with a great selection of independent speciality shops, cafés, coffee shops, and the famous Jennings Brewery, offering tasting tours.

    A nice cottage in a quiet location - you need a car but it's only a short drive to Keswick and Cockermouth. It was good value and the set up suited our party of Grandparents, Parents, 5 year old and toddler. The cottage was well equipped though a few niggles - lack of lock on bathroom door and nettles in the garden inspite of checking that the garden was suitable for children. However WiFi worked perfectly and it suited us. We would definitely stay again.

    A magnificent location and lovely cottage with a secure garden if you have a dog. However, there are so many flies, which is to be expected as there are sheep at the back and front of the cottage. We had a 'swarms' of small flies (fruit flies?) in the bedroom, bathroom and loo, also over the front door. The kingsize bed is comfortable and linen clean, unfortunately there is a double fitted sheet which is too small and does not stay in place. The light was not working in the front bedroom (right at top of stairs) but a light bulb had been left on the dresser, unfortunately there was no way of fitting this, due to the style of the light fitting! There were no spare batteries to replace the dead ones in the TV remote, also there were no bin bags, or washing up liquid so a trip to the shops was needed. We would have liked to have a fire on a couple of evenings as it was chilly, we could not gain access to the garage or bike shed to get the wood. The grass had been cut and some plants cut down, however, a bed of stinging nettles had been left! A mobile clothes drying rack would be useful for the conservatory for drying wet coats. We did enjoy our stay, although only used 1 bedroom as some family could not come. The cottage is in a good location for Cockermouth and Keswick and a car is pretty much essential.

    Great pastoral views to the rear. Well-equipped inside, comfortable beds and extra pillows. One recommendation - cushions on furniture in the conservatory which could be transferred to the patio chairs. Could do with a table to go with patio chairs...

    Nice location and well equipped utility / kitchen. No welcome pack. Couldn't find a hairdryer or the dice for the Monopoly which are apparently hidden in the kitchen for guests to find. Wi-fi didn't work (the 3 previous guests also reported this in the visitor book and despite this it didn't work so we didn't have Netflix either). Nice garden area but grass and daisies hadn't been cut for a while.

    Pros - beautiful location, well presented cottage, with easy access to the northern and western Lake District. The building is very quiet, you can't hear any noise from other rooms. It was very clean and tidy. We would stay again. Cons - the broadband doesn't work and therefore neither does Netflix etc. I know wifi is hit and miss in rural locations but it shouldn't be advertised if it is so patchy. There is also no phone signal or 4G at the cottage so if you wish to stay online, this may not be the cottage for you. The garden is full of nettles and thistles, and the hedge around the garden is dead, really needs some TLC. The dishwasher needs replacing. It didn't wash any of the dishes properly and the top tray was very hard to open and close, and it came loose on our last night.

    Enjoyed our stay but there were a couple of minus niggles. There was no Internet at all which was annoying as travelling with two teenagers. It did say there was internet, reading the reviews at the cottage think this should be amended. The bedroom lights were not always working in one of the bedrooms and there were bulbs that required replacing as noted in the book which hadnt been. Very good location for our stay as we wanted to Visit Derwent Water. Overall fairly clean although it might be worth checking when cleaning bedrooms behind and in drawers as there were some items left from previous owners visible when putting our items in the drawers. Overall not a bad place to stay could be fantastic with a bit more care and attention would consider staying again if internet and light bulbs working. We did not contact regarding the wifi and bulbs as we were at the property late Friday until Sunday and it did say internet is not an emergency and our stay was outside office hours.

    Had an amazing holiday wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful cottage with enclosed garden. Only 8 miles from Keswick and 5 miles to nearest Aldi. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. The only downside was there were no trays for cooking in the oven. But that's my only gripe so remember to take your baking sheets with you peeps Hahaha.

    The property was in a very peaceful location. There were several disappointments as detailed below that should be brought to the owners attention to enable them to address the issues. The standard of cleaning the property prior to holiday makers arrival was not good. Numerous dead flies are trapped in the conservatory blinds/glass roof. The garden had not been maintained prior to arrival, or during our stay. The WiFi did not work throughout our stay, except for a couple of hours on the final day. The vacuum cleaner was completely full and blocked which took half an hour to empty half of the accumulated waste inside it. It had obviously been there for a considerable length of time without being checked. Despite these issues we enjoyed our stay and the location of the cottage.

    A comfortable warm cottage in a superb rural setting. We would definitely visit again. A few small points :- 1. No instructions for use of TV which was connected to a Amazon firestick. Difficult to sort out if you are not familiar with it. 2. Grass looked as though it hadn`t been cut for a year. 3. Top shelf of dishwasher broken. 4.Dead flies in conservatory ceiling blind. 5. Lights not working in conservatory.

    A beautiful cottage. Roadside setting was no problem as it was a quiet country lane. Sheep are the nearest neighbours then the distillery 100 yds away but that did not affect our stay. The cottage is very quiet and a car is a must as, apart from the distillery, there is nothing nearby. Cockermouth is near enough for shops, restaurants and other facilities, as Keswick is a bit further away and is much busier. That suited us perfectly for a quiet and restful holiday. A well equipped kitchen and utility made cooking etc easy. Beds very comfortable. We agreed for my aging mother to go into the single room as there is a step down from the two double rooms onto the landing. We were worried about her falling in the night. It was a good choice. Instead of her falling, it was me that fell down the step on the first night - even with a night light on. ? This needs to be considered for anyone staying here. TV room was handy next to the kitchen but the seating in there was not the most comfortable. The sofa and chairs in the second lounge were so much nicer - but no TV in there. We would not be put off by this but maybe (owners) try it out and give it some thought. Not having a hairdryer was unusual, though you can get by. Also we could not use a bedside light in the small room as it would have meant a trailing wire across the doorway - there was only one socket in the room. These issues were only minor and certainly did not spoil our week in Derwent Cottage. It is a lovely place and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Thank You.

    Lovely peaceful place, enjoyed our stay, everything was as it should be except the utility/toilet room badly needs updating, smell of rotted wood from where an old washing machine or something had been taken out, otherwise everything else fine.
