    the cottage was ideally situated for us as we have family not too far away. there are loads of walks to do from right outside the door. Keswick is just a short walk away too. the cottage itself was clean and very well equipped.

    The cottage was very clean, and well situated for walkers who want to explore the North Lakes area and Keswick in particular. The owners were great and on hand for any help and support if needed. We would thoroughly reccoment this cottage for a great get away for 2 in the North Lakes area.

    A very cosy, comfortable and charmingly decorated cottage. We enjoyed the quiet rural setting and being so close to the bigger Keswick. The owners were very helpful and welcoming.

Thank you so much for your welcome pack, the privacy and your obvious attention to detail. We have loved every single minute and will definitely return. Again, thank you.
