  • "We had a lovely week, and Pippin cottage was perfect for us- our dog is called Pippin too, and we all felt very much at home."

    It was ideal being so close to the park, and only a few minutes from the centre of town. The cottage facilities were excellent and we will definitely be back.

  • "Pippin Cottage is a gem of a find."

    It a beautiful, well kept, very comfortable cottage, many positives for this cottage absolutely no negatives can be said about our stay. It is extremely tastefully decorated and has everything you would possible need. It is in an ideal position opposite a lovely park which has such a lot of amenities, excellent for any furry friends you have accompanying you on holiday. Your a 5 minutes walk from the centre of Keswick to all shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs and much more. The lake and outside theatre was only 10 minutes walk. Would definitely stay again.

  • "We loved our stay in Pippin Cottage."

    The cottage was tastefully decorated and it felt like it was loved and cared for. It was very clean and it was great to find the cupboards stocked with helpful items like clingfilm and kitchen foil for picnics. The location was ideal, across the road from the beautiful Fitz Park and a couple of minutes' walk into town. Keswick itself is an amazing place with so much to do from the cottage doorstop. We never used the car during our week. I would highly recommend Pippin Cottage and we'd definitely return.

  • "Great cottage in a great location."

    Fantastic furnishings and everything you could possibly need. Great shower that works as good as it looks - that's rare in Keswick! As is having your own private parking, although when other cars parked nearby, maneuvering in and out can be a bit tricky, but not impossible. Lovely host too, there if needed, but not imposing.

  • "A lovely cottage in an excellent location."

    Unfortunately we found the chairs in the lounge to be very uncomfortable, especially the sofa. The outside patio area was very untidy with leaves and weeds everywhere, and we could not eat outside as the patio table was very dirty. Although we love the area we will not return to this cottage as the prices have rocketed for 2022!

  • "Pippin Cottage is in a great location, the cottage is clean and well kept."

    We had a very enjoyable stay but we did find the sofa and chairs uncomfortable but that is probably personal preference. A great place to stay especially if you have a dog has the park is opposite the cottage and our dog loved it. Pippin Cottage is a credit to its owner.

  • "Beautiful well equipped cottage which exceeded all our expectations."

    A great location, really close to Keswick town for all the shops and restaurants. Being across the road from Fitz Park was a real bonus too for our cockapoo, every trip into town had to start with a walk through the park!!

  • "The cottage is in a great location, a beautiful property that is dog friendly."

  • "The house was tastefully decorated with top of the range appliances."

    The bed was very comfortable with high quality bedding. A short walk from the park and the shops and importantly for us it was dog friendly.

  • "The location was perfect for us - across from the park, close to the town and walking distance from the lake."

    We were so happy with this cottage, it was really well equipped and we had a great holiday. We've stayed in a lot of Lakelovers properties, but this is definitely the best we've been in.
