  • "This is a lovely cottage with everything you could possibly need."

    Located in an excellent place for access to walks. One of the best cottages we have stayed in.

    Thank you very much. Sorry the Christmas decorations were still up. We were looking after 3 ponies while their owner was on holiday so couldn’t come to Eribel until now. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week at Eribel Cottage."

    Two things that I had a problem with are (a) the door in the kitchen did not lock and (b) the bed in the bedroom with steps down into it collapsed at the bottom right hand corner. Luckily my husband had a tool kit with him and he was able to stabilise the bed frame. I think this needs to be looked into as I am not sure if the bed needs to be changed and wouldn’t want anyone to be hurt.

  • "A beautiful location and lovely cottage."

    The cottage itself was very well equipped. The only issue we had was some cleaning issues but overall the essentials were clean. The items for children are not stated on listings and can be found in a cupboard and we asked for a travel cot which we found under a bed. This I felt should have been assembled ready for us arriving.

  • "Love Eribel."

    Our 4th year visiting and our 7 year old grandson voted it his favourite holiday house ever. Great location, superb views, comfortable and well equipped. Already booked for next year. Very minor niggle - French door lock is a bit temperamental and also five bar gate latch. Nothing to negatively affect our stay.

    We are glad you have enjoyed your stay at Eribel. We will have a look at the lock on the French door. The gate latch has been a problem as the gate post is moving slightly under the weight of the gate putting more pressure on the latch. We will ask a fencing contractor for advice. Property Owner

  • "We are just back from a week at Eribel Cottage, the location and views of countryside are beautiful, there is a lovely coffee shop in Threlkeld which is very reasonably priced in comparison to Ambleside and Keswick."

    The cottage is well equipped however we felt this is not a luxury accommodation as listed. NONE of the windows open on the ground floor they are all locked and when we arrived the property smelt of stale curry throughout , we tried to open windows but they were all locked and no keys !!! (this had been mentioned previously in the guest book Twice !!). The property could as also mentioned in the guest book do with closing for a week and a deep clean of everything completed. House is grubby throughout now and certainly not to the standard expected, corners, skirting boards, lights, mirrors, surfaces, bathroom fitments eg. Towel rails etc. Overall it was a lovely week location and view wise but we would like to hear from you with regard to cleanliness as not up to standard !!! Also the paving slabs are slippery at back and front of house and a member of our party slipped and hurt her thigh coming out the bifold doors, they desperately need jetwashing at the soonest !!! We await your feedback and also owners feedback.

    Thank you for your feedback. We will take your comments in order. The windows downstairs can be opened but the plastic lock cover, over the pivot, has to be depressed and held while turning the lock either clockwise or anti-clockwise. Once turned pressure on the plastic cover can be released. This is a partial lock for security reasons on the ground floor. We are concerned that if the windows are opened too easily they may be left opened which has already happened. One day the cleaner noticed the downstairs shower room window was left open which would allow a burglar easy access to the property. The upstairs windows can be fully opened. We will give a detailed explanation of how to open the windows and ventilate the rooms in the Eribel Handbook. We only hope the holiday guests will find the time to read the handbook. We are sorry a catering aroma of curry was still in the cottage on your arrival. This presents a problem as we have no control over the menu choices of holiday guests. We have to accept the aromas they leave behind. There is only a five hour window of time (1000 to 1500 hours) between holiday guests leaving and arriving which is not enough time to ventilate the cottage. The cleaner usually spends no more than four hours at the cottage to avoid being present when holiday guests leave or arrive so this shortens the time. On the subject of ventilation, as mentioned above, the windows can be opened and each window has a horizontal ventilation port above the glass pane with a fully adjustable flap to open or close the port. Furthermore there are 3 external doors in the cottage (front, side to utility room and back to kitchen). The bi-folding doors have 3 full sized door panels and the French doors have 2. This means there are a total of 8 full sized door panels of ventilation downstairs in the property plus all the windows except the one above the kitchen sink. I am not sure what more we can do with regards to ventilation. Please remember the cleaner can only open these for a maximum of 4 hours between lettings. The rest of the time there will be a holiday guest in the property. The general cleaning is managed by Lakes Cottage Holidays who employ the Cleaners. They are aware of the cleaning concerns and will ensure the cleaning is up to standard. Finally the patio is regularly power washed already but sometimes the progress of the algae growth is faster at than at other times. There has been difficulty with monitoring the patio surface but we are working on a solution. We are sorry there has been a fall and hope the lady has recovered from her injury. Property Owner

    The location is great and the cottage homely. A few of the furnishings and bedding is looking a bit tired but overall a very nice place. We did have a blocked sewer which caused some problems but it was sorted very quickly. No doubt we’ll book again next year.

    It has a lovely stream babbling to the side and mountain views to the front and red squirrels in the back garden. There are a variety of walks locally and without having to travel far. The converted railway route is a good walk or bike ride into Keswick, which itself has nice gardens, shops and Derwentwater, of course. The walk round Buttermere was beautiful and the walk up Skiddaw spectacular. Loads to do, spectacular cottage. Can't fault it.

    A very well equipped kitchen with everything you could need. Seeing the red squirrels every day was a bonus. The only downside was the heating which didn't seem to work properly, upstairs was fine but downstairs the underfloor heating didn't seem to work, but other than that it was a lovely cottage

    Thank you for your observations and trust you enjoyed the facilities and location of Eribel Cottage. It is a pity you found the heating was a problem, one that has occurred before when the electric radiators were used to increase the temperature of the living accommodation. Electric radiators are provided in case the central heating breaks down. If the electric radiators are used in conjunction with the underfloor heating, the heat output raises the temperature above that set on the thermostat which shuts down the underfloor heating. I thank you again for your feedback and hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

    Walks on your doorstep and fabulous views from the house. The property has been beautifully refurbished and modernised and is very well equipped, probably because the owners use it themselves, making it more of a home. Just a couple of criticisms. The duvet is only king size and doesn't fit the super king bed. It's also not thick enough for autumn/winter use. We had to pinch the duvet from another bedroom to keep warm. The underfloor heating in the lounge is inadequate and didn't really seem to warm up. There were a number of evenings when we were quite chilly. When we tried to turn the heating up it kept flicking back to a lower temperature. It was as if it was being controlled elsewhere! Also the entire heating went off at 9.30 in the morning. There were some strange anomalies with the heating which we never really understood, particularly upstairs which was off more than it was on and the heated towel rail in the bathroom only came on for a few hours in the evening!! Really don't like being cold when we're on holiday.

    Two ladies from the Keswick office came over straight away and saw for themselves a multitude of unclean areas including one of the beds. They immediately set to and changed bedding, cleaned floors and dusted. They quite agreed that the cottage should not have been left in that state - a stomach churning start to our holiday! I must say from the initial phone call with Gary to the girls coming round, I felt that your staff did all they could to put matters right including a refund of £100 at the end of the holiday. The disappointing start to the holiday at Eribel Cottage will not put us off booking the property again as it is so beautiful and so tastefully done. I think the owners would have been saddened to see that it had been so let down because of the lack of cleaning! Thank you to Karen and team for putting things right and I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the week.

The property

This lovely cottage is only 4 miles from Keswick and 1 mile from Keswick Golf Club, in the picturesque Threlkeld village.

At the foot of Blencathra mountain, you’ll find amazing views to Helvellyn and beyond here. This light and airy cottage, with lovely oak flooring, has folding doors at the front, and French doors on the side, to maximise the gorgeous view.

With access to the garden from the lounge, front and rear patios, and a garden, this is a place for all the family to enjoy the countryside. The lounge has comfortable seating and plenty of space for all the family to gather, and a wall mounted TV with Netflix if the weather’s bad.

The diner/kitchen is beautifully done with a dining table and a breakfast bar.

There’s also a utility room with space for your muddy boots and outdoor clothes, so you don’t have to walk through the house when you’ve just been hiking, and a superb downstairs shower room completes the ground floor.

Upstairs you’ll find a lovely master bedroom with a super king-sized bed, another king-sized room with dual aspect for stunning views, a single bedroom, and a pretty family bathroom with a shower over the bath. Outside through the French doors, you’ll find a patio with dining furniture and a lawned garden for your private use, all perfect for enjoying the amazing views. Eribel Cottage is right at the foot of Blencathra for hiking right on your doorstep, and the village of Threlkeld is close by, with its mining history and pretty cottages.

You’ll find home cooked food and local ales in the pubs, and fantastic walks to Castlerigg Stone Circle, Keswick Railway Path, and the Cumbrian Way.

And if you’re a keen golfer, Keswick Golf Club is only one mile away. Travel just four miles to the town of Keswick, with its shops and restaurants, the Pencil Museum, Mining Museum, crazy golf at Hope Park and a lot more to see and do.

And Derwentwater isn’t far for sailing, water sports and more amazing walks. Eribel Cottage is well-placed for a busy and fun family holiday with so much to enjoy and explore, and a luxury cottage to come home to at the end of the day.
