    “When I booked the cottage I looked ...”

    When I booked the cottage I looked for one that had parking. The information online said it had parking outside the cottage. On arrival the car could barely squeeze down the alley to the cottages. Inside the cottage in the information folder it says do not attempt it if you have anything larger than a small car, too late, once in you can barely get out again because of the tight bend!

    When I booked the cottage I looked for one that had parking. The information online said it had parking outside the cottage. On arrival the car could barely squeeze down the alley to the cottages. Inside the cottage in the information folder it says do not attempt it if you have anything larger than a small car, too late, once in you can barely get out again because of the tight bend! Also in the folder was a scrappy photo of the parking with an arrow pointing to a space that says "can park here if it's available, first come first served". There are about 8 or 9 cottages, and parking spaces for 3 cars, two of which are private. There was a car already in the space that did not move whilst we were there. The nearest parking, if you can find a space, is several roads away, as the nearest car park is a short stay only. The cottage is in a great location but we would not stay here again as we like to park the car and not use it again once we are in Keswick, and we like to be able keep our eye on it. The booking information is misleading and should be changed.
