    We have been to Galena many times and always have a lovely time. It’s secluded yet within a 5 minute walk to restaurants and local shops. On the way home I was already texting the hosts for availability to visit again.

    Unfortunately, we were not pleased with the unwelcoming aspect to the cottage, the front steps were dirty and covered in leaves from last autumn The heating was not on and the cottage was absolutely freezing. We managed to turn it on eventually but it took a day to warm up. The patio door is almost impossible to open and the floors were not vacuumed (at least I don't think so). The whole place looks tired and in need of repairs so I don't think it is worth the cost . We paid a similar amount last year to an immaculate cottage in the village.

    Great location for families who enjoy walking. Set high up, nestled into the hill side it feels time has stood still. Well equipped kitchen. We loved it despite some areas being a little grubby and tired e.g bathroom Although must say having two loos was great. Owners very helpful.

    Galena is a real get-away-from-it-all gem, deep within the English Lake District close to the village of Glenridding. It has an elevated position, with Ullswater in sight from the livingroom window. The cottage was cosy and warm (we were there January) and had everything we needed. The location was very quiet. All the places you are most likely to visit (Keswick, Kendal, Windermere, Ambleside, Consiton) are within short driving distance of the cottage. The only fly-in-the-ointment was perhaps not being allowed to stay on 2 extra hours on departure day (until 12pm). This was apparently to accommodate the cleaner rather than the guests! A bit disappointing given that it was low season and there didn't appear to be anyone coming in behind us. That said, we would return as it was a delightful cottage and not much to fault with it in the main.

    Second stay here absolutely fabulous we had nightly visits from the badgers and red squirrels in the garden walks from the door step great food in the village pubs



    out of 10

    Perfect bolthole for a family holiday. Only downside that there's not enough hot water for a bath.
