“A quality cottage - very homely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

A modernised quality cottage, with good facilities, very near to town, within easy walking distance of a local pub [reasonable food - real ale]. Good views and easy access to the river at the back of the cottage.

“compact, convenient & comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This was our 2nd visit to this cottage which has all the facilities we need. Its on a main road into Keswick about 10 mins walk into the town centre. Parking is allocated off road although a bit tight. Lovely stream at the rear of the property. Would definitely consider it again.

“Cosy and comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

3rd time at this cottage and we had the usual warm welcome from Dot and Ron. Situated 10 mins walk from Keswick it is ideal for the northern lakes. Cottage is clean and comfortable and with the fire on in the evening is very cosy. Brother and sister inlaw also stayed for the week, the beds are comfortable and were most welcome after a days walking. Everything you need if you wish to cook at the cottage in the evenings but with 10 minute walk into Keswick you will find pubs and restaurants. Will be back in 2013.

“Lovely comfy cottage in superb location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Really enjoyed our stay in Greta Bank Cottage, met with the owners on our arrival, which was lovely, cottage clean and well equipped, on the banks of the River Greta. Nice level walk into Keswick Town Centre. Excellent location and would not hesitate to recommend this cottage.

“what a lovely cottage in Keswick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We booked this cottage at the last minute, and what a delight it was. When staying in the Lake District, I usually prefer to stay in Ambleside or Windemere but we thought we'd try someone different. We arrived at 7 pm and were personally greeted by the owners. They showed us where everything was and even left us a bowl of fruit and some fresh flowers. The cottage was cosy and nice & clean with a fully equiped kitchen. It was nice not to have to worry about taking towels and bedding. The cottage has space for one car. I was surprised how quiet the house was at night, even with cars going past. We went to the pub across the road, Twa Dogs which had a pool table and darts board which my 13 year old liked. We didn't eat there but meals were around £8-12 pounds I think. Quite a few walks with Keswick as it's base so we didn't drive the entire week we were there. If you want to self cater, make a trip to Booth's Supermarket for great quality food. As the cottage doesn't have Wifi, we went to Costa Coffee for that. It's about 8-10 minute walk into town. Would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to return again
