    Set in 10 acres of gardens and meadows on the foothills of the Skiddaw range, Garries Cottage is adjoining the owner’s 17th Century home, in a quiet and tranquil area above Bassenthwaite village. From this elevated position you can see Bassenthwaite Lake with panoramic views of the surrounding fells and over to the West, some spectacular sunsets. Many grades of walking direct from the door, from gentle woodland and meadow walks to the more strenuous heights of Skiddaw. An area of occasional farms nestling into the fells reached by meandering lanes and far from the madding crowds, but within easy reach of Keswick and Cockermouth and the popular northern fells and lakes.

    We were greeted by the lovely owner, Marlene. Nice and warm in the cosy cottage. Very peaceful setting with lots of walking options. Lucky with the weather. It is certainly an option to revisit.

    Lovely cosy little cottage. Owners are very friendly and helpful and live next door. Countryside location surrounded by a pretty garden to sit out in, great for the dogs. There are red squirrels to be seen in the area, apparently they come in the garden too. We stayed here for a week and had super weather. Keswick is not far, with a lovely theatre and plenty of shops, amenities and a weekly market. Pub in the village, which you can walk to. Only negative would be no washing machine but the owner is happy to allow use of hers, so not a problem.

    Cottage is in a beautiful location . Downstairs is a little cramped , would’ve been a bit tight with four people . Nice gardens out back , unfortunately we didn’t have the weather to sit out there ! Lots of great walks from Keswick , 20mins drive away.

    We had a really lovely holiday at Garries Cottage. We loved the more remote location - but not that far from amenities in Keswick or Cockermouth. The owners were very helpful, friendly and welcoming. The cottage is cosy, well equipped and comfortable - and owners happy to help put with clothes washing/drying if needed. Would definitely recommend.

    Outdated and overrun with cobwebs . The place needs a deep clean . The woodland advertised isn’t mature , has no pathways and really isn’t a woodland at all . No peace to be had in the garden due to the crows in the trees . Advertised as no smoking ( as all are ) but when you get there it says no smoking in the grounds too ! The single track road is a nightmare ! The owner is lovely and accommodating , but the cottage needs some work !

    A very spacious cottage surrounded by stunning landscapes. The owners were very friendly and polite. It has its own private woodland which is completely fenced in which was great for the dog to have him off the lead. Red squirrels came straight to the back door.Fantastic walks straight from the front door. Great pub 1 mile away and only 2 miles to the lake. Had a fantastic week will certainly book again.

    A small, but very cosy cottage in a superb location. Sufficiently "off the beaten track" to be very quiet and peaceful, but only a short drive to Keswick and ideal for the Lake District fells. Great for dogs: there is a good exercise area within the grounds, and a bridleway leading up to the Cumbrian Way is only a couple of minutes away. Super wildlife - red squirrels were regular visitors when we were there. Also, the Sun Inn in nearby Bassenthwaite village is excellent - and dog-friendly. Highly recommended.
