“Amazing views and great location”
Reviewed 13 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We had a lovely Valentines weekend away in the lake district and this was the perfect place to wake up in and come back to. Amazing views from the lounge and bedroom window. The location was great for Keswick for our walk round Derwentwater and Castlerigg.

Bed was comfortable, the kitchen had all we needed and the sofa was also comfortable to relax into after a day of walking. Plenty of space for off road parking. Valerie and Rachel were a pleasure to deal with. Hope to be back some day!

“Lovely bungalow in peaceful location with amazing view”
Reviewed 7 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Bungalow was spacious, very clean and had everything you’d need. The floor to ceiling windows meant you could make the most of the amazing view and my elderly mother spent many hours out on the patio just admiring the beautiful garden and the fells beyond. The owner, Valerie, is really lovely and lives 2 doors away and so is handy if you need anything. Also very interesting to chat to about the area and how things have changed. The location is perfect for peace and quiet but only a few miles from Keswick for supplies etc. Would definitely return.

“Location, location, location.”
Reviewed 31 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The cottage has the iconic Blencathra mountain on one side and the picture windows of the cottage overlook the owners beautiful garden to St.Johns in the vale on the other. The property is well maintained and has everything you need, including parking spaces outside the front door. The bonus is the Horse and Farrier pub a short walk away, which serves great food and ales. A wonderful holiday spot and none better for walkers.

“Lovely cottage and location”
Reviewed 6 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Had a fab few days over the weekend. Lovely cottage set in a beautiful location. Lovely welcome from owners. Would highly recommend staying here. Lovely walks from the cottage. My only little criticism would be the pillows where a couple were a bit flat but that's a personal preference. Than you for renting your lovely cottage for our short break.
