    Harriet’s Hideaway is one of the six Pine Vale cottages in Seldom Seen, converted from a former water driven saw mill, dating back to the 1700’s. Situated at the foot of the beautiful Seldom Seen ravine, right next to the mountain stream Coombe Beck, in the village of Thornthwaite, this terraced holiday cottage lies just three miles west of Keswick, a truly idyllic location with views across the Derwent Marshes to Skiddaw. The area is great for both walking and cycling and lies on the lower slopes of Whinlatter, with many forest trails and mountain bike tracks. There is a gallery and tea room 100 yards from the cottage (open throughout the year apart from January) and a shop, pubs and restaurants are one mile away in the village of Braithwaite. The vibrant market town of Keswick has a wealth of amenities, a total contrast to the peace and tranquillity at Harriet’s Hideaway.

    This was a little Gem of a place . It’s location is perfect for accessing all of the lakes . I was impressed with the BT sports and Movie access as this does not come as standard with most self catering holidays . I have seen some of the negative reviews but can report the bathroom is refurbished and no issues with damp or smells so this is resolved . The cottage is set in a very quiet residential area on the edge of Whinlatter forest of which there is direct access from behind the property or just up the road . The lull of the nearby stream was a delight to us and you may even catch sight of a red squirrel crossing the car park . There are a wealth of leaflets and maps within the property that give you ideas of where to go and what to do . The double bed was comfortable and the cottage tastefully furnished with a good stock of cooking implements that make catering easier. It has two large sofas perfect for putting your feet up after a hard days walking . We loved staying here and will definitely be back .

    Needs- A sign to say where kitchen light pull is! Oven shelves fixed/corrected as they fell down when used. More shelves in kitchen, bedrooms and bathroom. Information on purple recycling bags. A towel rail in bathroom. New hook on bedroom door as it fell straight off when touched. Blinds in the kitchen as no privacy at front. More drinking glasses in kitchen as only 4 there. Toilet roll holder moved as in difficult to reach place. Bedroom bins replaced as look battered/old. Different mats in kitchen as they are slippery on floor. Note to say DVD’s in cupboard. Shower head to come out further from wall as bath base is curved so can’t stand close enough to shower.

    The cottage was very dusty when we arrived especially under beds and cobwebs from ceiling, there was damp in the bedrooms especially the back room, which was black on the walls by the time we left. Left chest of drawers pulled out to show cleaner. I appreciate old cottages have damp but this was very bad. Location is very quite which is great, but there are no local amenities unless you walk to next village or drive to Keswick.

    The property smelled very damp, particularly in the bathroom. The bedding didn't smell very fresh and the bed was very uncomfortable. For the price of our 4 night stay it was very disappointing. The kitchen didn't have a dishwasher which you would expect for the price and due to its slightly out of the way location you would think at least one toilet roll could be provided. We did not find it very homely and preferred not to spend much time in the property.
