  • "Fabulous cottage-well equipped, great location, lovely and warm and has everything you could possibly need."

    My only comment is, as a dog owner, I would not describe the outside area as "enclosed" although I totally agree it's private and a lovely area.

    Hi Jill. Thank you for your lovely feedback regarding Scots Pine - we are very grateful. We have amended the listing to state the garden is private. Best Wishes Neil & Karen Property Owner

  • "Stopped in many places in Keswick and one of the best."

    The cottage is equipped with everything you need, clean, very comfy and great location for Keswick and walking from the cottage. Fantastic holiday thank you One for Sykes : you need to let the guest know in the key collection instructions that the front door is self locking.

    Hi Katharine. Thank you for your lovely feedback about Scots Pine. We are glad you had a great time. Your point re the self locking front door is very valid. We have amended the arrival instructions to reflect this. In addition we have fitted an additional key safe for the back door as an emergency additional entrance should guests inadvertently lock themselves out of the front door. Best Wishes Neil & Karen Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful week at Scots Pine - what a beautiful and interesting property, part of what was once a very grand house."

    The house is spacious and fitted out to a high standard, clean, warm and with a very relaxed ambience. It's in a great location in a quiet area below Latrigg Fell but just a few minutes walk to the bustling town of Keswick. We were very lucky with the weather and stayed mostly local, walking up Latrigg Fell and Walla Crag and around Derwent Water to Friars Crag and Castle Crag. One small point - we managed to lock ourselves out on the night we arrived by mistaking the type of lock on the front door - it works like a yale lock mechanism, so when we went out to collect our luggage, we just closed the door behind us and couldn't get back in! Fortunately, after a few panicked phone calls we were able to borrow a master key from the property manager. It might be worth mentioning this detail on the key collection information.

    Hi Leigh - Thank for your lovely feedback about Scots Pine. With regard to the yale locked front door and the issue you faced on being locked out we have fitted an additional key safe for the back door which can be used to gain access if a similar event was to happen to another guest. Best Wishes Neil & Karen Property Owner

    E. before the bridge over brundholme road .it took us half an hour to find Scott’s pine and when we did the entrance gate didn’t even list Scott’s pine as being there ! It was the stables that directed us to the property ,so it was a good job it wasn’t dark or raining on arrival . A map showing the area as windybrowe would have helped greatly No other grumbles cottage warm comfy and excellently fitted out .

    Thanks Eric for your lovely feedback about the cottage. We are very sorry that you had difficulty locating the property. We will look to improve still further the directions given to customers. Best Wishes Neil & Karen Property Owner

    It is perfectly situated to enable easy access to Keswick and the surrounding area. It is warm and cosy and the beds really comfortable.

    This may be due to a busy season and/or lack of time to clean certain areas a bit more thoroughly. Did not spoil our stay by any means and we will be back next year. Just attention to certain details!
