  • "We had a fabulous week at Leesrigg Cottage."

    After a long drive up from the Midlands, we had a very warm welcome from the owner on arrival. The cottage is beautiful with a lovely garden and was the perfect size for myself, my daughter and our two cairn terriers. It was very cosy and comfortable and equipped with everything we could possibly need for a self catering holiday. Fantastic location for visting the Lake District and the Cumbrian coast. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and will definitely stay again.

  • "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.
