  • "We had a great week at 1 Leesrigg Cottages."

    The cottage was spotless when we arrived, it is beautifully decorated and has everything we needed for a week away. There is a large garden which was great for our dogs. The cottage is ideally placed for visiting the Solway Coast and Western Lake District. Over the last 10 years we have stayed in lots of dog friendly cottages, this one is one of the best we have used.

    Thanks for the lovely feedback, we're delighted that you rated our cottage so highly! We'd be pleased to see you return some time in the future. Property Owner

  • "Superb cottage for 1 to 4 people, Plenty of parking and garden space, Everything you need provided, and very clean and modern, a credit to it's owners Graham and Amanda, who are very helpful."

    The cottage's location is perfect, not in the hustle and bustle of the lake district towns, But all easily accessible if required, take a boat trip at Keswick's Derwent water IMO the most scenic of them all, the sea and Carlisle are not far away. A great cottage and area to chill out. Book it, You will enjoy it.

    Thanks. We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay, and what the area has to offer. We'd be pleased to see you return some time in the future. Property Owner

    It was really clean and modern, everything we needed was provided. Lovely welcome from the owners who are really helpful and provided lots of added extras. Beautiful kept gardens which were great to sit out in and enjoy the sun. Great walks which our dogs loved and plenty to do to keep the children entertained.

  • "This cottage was perfect for what we wanted: to be outside the busy areas of the Lake District yet close enough to visit some of the local hills with just a short drive."

    It is also <10 minutes drive from Aspatria which has shops and a train connection to Carlisle (great bookshop and Castle) and the coast (we'd recommend the coastal path walk from St. Bee's to Whitehaven as a pleasant change from all those hills in the Lake District)

    There’s ample parking and the owners, who live next door, are very helpful but not invasive, so you’d hardly know they were there. Nice welcome pack with bread, milk etc. Good location within easy reach of various lakes and attractions.

  • "The cottage is really clean and cosy with everything we needed for our stay."

    One of the great things about the cottage is a truly amazing garden which my children loved playing in. In the end we had a disappointing holiday due to a car mishap which meant we couldn’t travel into the Lake District as we originally planned. Public transport would normally have been an option but we were reluctant because of Covid. The owners were really helpful and friendly, they found a walk we could do in the immediate area, offered to drive us into Keswick one day and found some outdoor toys to entertain the children in the garden. I would really recommend the cottage and if it wasn’t for the car mishap, I’m sure our holiday would have been great.

  • "This is an excellent cottage in lovely gardens, beautifully equipped and furnished, with practical non-carpeted floors downstairs - ideal for dogs."

    The owners live next door, on hand should there be any problems. Ask Amanda if she has eggs available from her hens. Location-wise it is ideal for exploring the northern Lake District, with Carlisle, Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith in easy travelling distance, also the Roman sites further east. We had concerns with the practicality of the wash basins (more stylish than useable) and passed this on to the owners - may not be a problem for other users. We would stay there again.

Fantastic holiday had by all.

Lying just 5 miles from the coast and on the edge of the Lake District National Park, Aspatria is a superb base for discovering the Cumbrian countryside.
