  • "The best thing about this cottage is its quiet and scenic location."

    Perfect for exploring Borrowdale and the northern lakes. Plenty of lovely walks from the doorstep! The cottage was clean, comfortable and equiped with everything you'd expect in a self catering cottage.

  • "In the cottage it is requested that the wheelie bins are put out on certain days but it would be helpful to know which days since it says that some are emptied alternate weeks we don't know which week we are there."

    If a calender was put up with coloured days for certain bins it would be helpful. We did try to put out the recycling bin when we noticed others had put there bins out but it was full to the top and we could not move it.

  • "Great cottage in a fantastic location."

    Amazing walks off the doorstep whether you like the fells or the lakeside. The cottage is lovely and has everything you need, including a nice garden and an enormous rock for scrambling on. Perfect location for a break in the Lake District!

    We had visits from the local deer each morning and couldn’t have picked a better spot for our stay in the lakes. We would definitely recommend to our friends and would definitely stay here again. Thanks so much :-)

  • "Very warm and cosy cottage with a beautiful views from every room."

    Lots of kitchen equipment . Very good location. Keswick town just 10 min away. Every evening we enjoyed fire place, really relaxing after long walks. We had little amount of wood for the fire place, we had to buy it in the Keswick town. And also the sleeping duvets were to thick and heavy. Otherwise everything was very good.

  • "Normally we would not return to the same property."

    Rock Cottage was different and that says it all! (See comment Sept 2020). Two improvements noted this year. A new drive surface and a dish washer - both very welcome. Wardrobe door problem still needs attention. Sadly big price increases for 2022 are unlikely to result in another visit!

    Although you have neighbours and properties around you it was extremely quiet. We would return again!

  • "Shopped in Keswick on our way to the cottage."

    Directions spot on . Only had to go out again, Thursday Market day, to stock up on goodies. Walks for every capability right from the door and the wildlife and Birdlife are to die for. RED SQUIRRELS fabulous. I am looking to come back next year.

  • "Lovely quiet cottage with beautiful views from every window."

    Excellent location for walking from the door on the Borrowdale fells and by the river on the Allerdale Ramble, while convenient for Keswick. Very clean, good shower and comfortable beds. Red squirrels and woodpeckers were regular garden visitors - bring peanuts!

  • "Cottage was as expected as per description."

    Very clean, well equipped apart from lack of replacement vacuum bags as the one inside the machine was full to overflowing therefore very little suction. Delightful location surrounded by falls.

  • "Away from the busy part of Grange this is an excellent place from which to explore the area with many valley and hill walks close by."

    The bungalow is made more private by the rock (or miniature Lake District!) at the front. Look out for the red squirrel that appears almost daily. Although this is a semi detached property and there are properties to the front and rear this does not distract from its privacy and great views of the surrounding mountains.

    We were covered in mud everytime we went out as the garden had been churned up by someone else, (not us).

    I think it would be a good idea to have a key safe on the outside of the property so you don't have to pick up and drop off key in keswick

  • "We had the most relaxing and peaceful week."

    What a gorgeous location, great walks and so easy to get to Keswick. Rock cottage has everything you need, really good cooking facilities if you don’t want to have to eat out. Sykes cottages were so quick to sort us out with a hairdryer on Christmas Eve when I realised I hadn’t taken on and there wasn’t on in the cottage.
