“Fantastic stay with family”

Having stayed at nearby Lodore Falls Hotel a few years back, we wanted another crack at Keswick\Borrowdale with our extended family, and we really were not disappointed. Situated next to the Borrowdale Hotel, this cottage offers enough space to accommodate 8 people (3 double beds and 1 twin). The location is stunning, do not be put off by the road being near the front-door, or a hotel next door, or a B&B nearby, it is secluded enough to provide a certain amount of privacy and intimacy. The cottage is kept impeccably clean and there was not a spot of dust when we arrived (although it was a tad cold on arrival - we soon put on the log fires to get the house warmed up; central heating comes on at 4:30pm). Most of the bedrooms are situated downstairs, the kitchen diner area is modern and spacious but traditional at the same time, and is equipped with all the utensils, cutlery and crockery you could wish for; all bed rooms are cosy (when warm), modern and fantastic views of the surroundings! The 'wow' feature is the upstairs lounge which is thoroughly spacious with wonderful views of all surroundings (including Skiddaw, Catbells); again this is equipped with all the furniture you would need, flatscreen TV with Sky (could be a little bigger I suppose), fast internet, chill-out areas, DVDs, books, upstairs balcony area behind the cottage. We adhered to the house policy of not wearing shoes upstairs which made for a clean lounge area...

Outside, there was a small garden area, garage and space for two hatch-back cars. With different people wanting to do different things, this was an ideal place for people that did not want to go on hikes to chill out and relax, and an ideal place for those with tired legs to relax after a nice hot bath. The bathrooms were well equipped and done up up to a very good standard; you will need to bring your own towels (including hand-towels).

There's not much to criticise really,and if i was nitpicking, then it would be to have a larger TV, possibly have some hand-towels (although tea-towels were provided), maybe some warmth on arrival.

The stay was made all the more wonderful due to the amazing weather, and was a perfect place to enjoy the various sights of Borowdale and Keswick. There are plenty of areas to explore around here, and we particularly liked taking morning strolls along the Manesty Path near Derwent Water (absolutely serene and stunning in the mornings!), this is just down the road, and also the Lodore Falls are nearby too. The village of Grange is about a 10-15 min gentle stroll...

We came here to celebrate a landmark birthday, and we were not disappointed!

The owners also made a nice gesture of phoning us up to find out how our stay was! Keep up the good work guys, and I'm sure anyone who stays here will feel the same!

Btw, during our sty, we explored Catbells, Lake cruises, Latrigg, Skiddaw, Stone Circle, Keswick....wonderful place!
