    Easy walking into Keswick centre, some good walks and pubs with good food within easy reach. The cottage was cosy, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Perfect for the dog too having a good enclosed garden.

    The cottage was spotlessly clean, comfortable and nothing had been overlooked, and the Christmas tree was just the finishing touch. The garden was large, safe and secure for our dog. The cottage is an absolute credit to its owners. We loved it so much that we’ve already booked again for next year.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. So glad you had a good time. Look forward to welcoming you back next year. Property Owner

    The property has a was well equipped kitchen, it was clean, and after a busy day walking the chairs and bed were very comfortable. It was nice there was a secure garden outside for our dog with lots of grass. Plenty of parking outside the cottage. The property is easy walking distance to Keswick town center and Fitz park. There is a lovely river walk through the park which was beautiful.We liked it that much we have already booked to go again.

    So glad you had a good time. That walk through Fitz Park is lovely. Must be one of the most picturesque cricket grounds in the country! We look forward to welcoming you again, and thanks for your lovely comments. Property Owner

  • "Lovely place for a couple."

    Plenty of space. Comfortable. Great view of the fells from the lounge area. Good to have a parking space although good location to do lots on foot without moving the car. Didn't get to use the patio area due to the weather but good to have it if the sun shines! Only gripe would be is that the 9am checkout is a bit severe - 10am would be better!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay. We take all comments on board. Thank you- The Lakes Cottage Holidays Owner Relations Team Property Owner

    ). Ideal location 10 min walk to centre of Keswick. Keswick was incredibly busy due to it being August Bank Holiday start of our week so you really need to book places to eat etc. Pheasant Inn round the corner and Chinese take away down the road (both 10 min walk) both excellent food. Recommend old railway track walk to Thelkeld about 4 miles and walk around Derwentwater which is 10+ miles. Excellent Holiday in which we walked nearly 70 miles with our dog!
