“Lucky find”
Reviewed 30 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Lake view cottage, which in fact is an apartment, was a lucky find and booked on the day we took over the property. We had intended to stay two weeks in Scotland however due to poor weather we decided to leave after a week and try our luck in the Lake District. After a futile search online I rang Keswick Cottages who we have used before to see if they had anything for 4 nights at short notice. As luck would have it, Lake View was available. Situated at Thorntwaite, just outside Keswick, it was a lovely apartment offering two comfortable bedrooms, one with ensuite, Excellent kitchen, fully equipped, Good family bathroom. Comfortable lounge/ diner.
A real treat was the balcony which overlooks Skiddaw, the lovely landscaped gardens and glimpses of Bassenthwaite lake. Breakfasts were enjoyed here every morning due to the lovely sunny weather the UK was enjoying, apart from north western Scotland !
This is situated in a very convenient position near to good fell walking and Keswick.
Highly recommendable.
