Derwent View is a detached rural property set in mature gardens with private parking and a garage to store equipment and bicycles. This large family home is a great base from which to explore the surrounding countryside and the northern Lake District fells. It boasts two double bedrooms and a single comfortably sleeping up to five guests making it ideal for couples and families alike. With a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious bathroom with separate shower cubicle you will find all of the modern amenities you would expect from a 21st-century holiday home mixed with traditional décor throughout the rest of the house. The kitchendiner leads to a conservatory which makes the perfect spot to sit and soak up the rural views. There is the added benefit of two separate living rooms on the ground floor. One contains a Smart TV with complementary Netflix and Amazon Prime as well as a warming open fire perfect for relaxing in front of with a glass of wine. The other is a peaceful sitting room where you can settle down with a good book or in good company after a day exploring the surrounding area.\nDerwent View is set in the hamlet of Setmurthy and is only 700 yards from the mouth of Bassenthwaite Lake. 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. If you want to be pampered the local spa is only 1½ miles away\nNature lovers will be delighted as the surrounding area is great for spotting birds of prey including buzzards owls and kestrels as well as the famous ospreys which can be viewed at the nearby viewing point at Bassenthwaite. 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. Just 9 miles away is the popular town of Keswick on the shores of Derwentwater which offers an abundance of shopping and dining experiences as well as a variety of cultural hotspots and tourist attractions including The Pencil Museum home to the world’s largest pencil.

    lovely place to tour local area and both Keswick and Cockermouth.



    out of 10

    This was a brilliant place for my partner and I who were seeking to escape from everything entirely. For those who are visiting the Lake District with mountain bikes (like us), Whinlatter Forrest trail centre is a 10 minute drive away, and for those there to hike (also like us) there are beautiful hikes along bassenthwaite lake into Keswick (11.5 miles) as well as circular walks up Skiddaw right from the doorstep of this beautiful cottage. We did not go out looking for a pub and there are no convenience shops nearby that we found, however there was ample space in the kitchen for us to store a whole weeks worth of food. We felt like we really found a little gem here. The only reason I have given some 9/10 instead of 10/10 is with those guests who are not as mobile/without their own means of transport.

    Lovely warm cottage in a lovely setting



    out of 10

    When we first arrived the cottage was lovely and warm, although we did think it was a little dated & tired looking. After spending our first night in the super comfy, warm & spotlessly clean beds, we didn't even notice the afore mentioned dated comment. The location is great for walking and exploring the rest of the lake district, very close to Keswick and Cockermouth. Set in beautiful surroundings with total privacy and a lovely enclosed garden for our dog ( Harry ). What's not to like ! We loved this place so much we booked a week in our next years summer holidays as soon as we got home.

    A well equipped cottage in a stunning setting



    out of 10

    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...



    out of 10

    Good peaceful property. Although advertised there was no working WiFi. This needs rectifying.



    out of 10

    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.



    out of 10

    Wifi rubbish probably because of the thickness of wall. Don't advertise that it gas wifi becuase it doesn't



    out of 10
