  • "The cottage is great, we had a lovely time as there is lots of room for everyone so you can have some quite time and having a hotel next door is really handy because you are out of the town you can go for a drink and some great food."

    The only thing I would ask is that there is some instructions about how to use the central heating.

  • "Coombe Cottage is a perfect choice for a Lake District holiday, with fabulous views of Derwentwater and the fells and fields nearby and numerous walks right from the cottage."

    The neighbouring sheep and cows are lovely to watch and the cottage itself offers privacy and all the comforts of home. The kitchen is especially well equipped, with everything a family or group needs to self cater. Highly enjoyable and recommended!

  • "We had a wonderful week in Coombe cottage which is in a great location in Borrowdale; our favourite part of the lakes."

    The upstairs sitting rooms with big windows give great views of Derwent Water. All bedrooms are en-suite and a good size with comfortable beds and the large kitchen has everything you could need. The cottage is on the road from Keswick but we didn’t find the road noise a problem. The Borrowdale hotel is next door though we didn’t try their meals others gave good reviews. There is a small but lovely garden with seating and a balcony for those sunny days in the lakes (!) and lovely walks round the lake or up the hills from the cottage.

  • "A lovely, spacious cottage with the perfect location for all kinds of holiday pursuits."

    Ample heating, mood lighting and fuel for the two fires was included and there are comfortable beds, linen and bathrooms. The kitchen is large and comprehensively equipped, with a very effective wood burner. However, the toaster, kettle and cooker hob could all do with updating for a cottage of this otherwise excellent standard. The lounges upstairs were characterful, large and comfortable, with striking views towards Derwentwater, Skiddaw and Catbells. The wifi was not fast but, given the location, is probably up to local standard. A wifi extender for couples using the rear, ground floor bedroom would be helpful. These small negatives do not stop this being a great cottage and we would definitely consider a further stay.

  • "A couple of suggestions, the cottage is for 8 people but only has a single set of keys, making it difficult if the 4 couples are doing different things - could there not be a key safe?"

    Lacked enough baking trays

  • "We greatly appreciated the unexpected Xmas decorations, tree and box of chocolates which we found on arrival."

    Likewise the telephone call from the owner to see whether everything was OK which it certainly was. When the dishwasher packed up it was dealt with extremely quickly. What made this holiday however was the spacious accommodation which enabled eight people to relax in considerable comfort.

  • "We paid more than double what I would normally pay for a long weekend cottage hire, but it was worth every penny!"

    The kitchen and living space were awesome and spaces to cook and eat together and relax together Infront of the fire. The bedrooms were luxurious and comfortable with ensuites and one room had a full length bath. Very highly recommended!

  • "We've been using Sykes for a decade now, and each of the four Lakeland Properties we have stayed at have way exceeded expectations."

    We only have had to move on to each new property once our old favourite is no longer listed. Coombe Cottage was exemplary, the location, the property itself, and the amenities. We very much hope to be able to return in the near future. It would benefit from a key safe, rather than having to go to Keswick for pick up/drop off (parking there is not easy or cheap)

  • "Good location."

    Well equipped kitchen with large dining area. Excellent upstairs lounges. Very comfortable beds and very good showers. We enjoyed being able to park our third car in the Borrowdale Hotel car park.

  • "Coombe Cottage was excellent."

    Everything was there which had been advertised on the website but often adverts exaggerate so it was great that Coombe Cottage was just as it had been described. It was lovely to relax after a walk on the fells, to spread out in the spacious cottage, either in the conservatory when the sun was shining or in the lounge area with a fire on the colder evenings. We enjoyed preparing our food, putting it in the oven and popping next door to the Borrowdale Hotel for an aperatif before going back to the cottage to eat. It really did feel like home from home. Thank you for the fantastic cottage (Lem and Kal), the cleanliness and order (Keith) and the beautiful garden (Dave). Well placed for Keswick (10 minutes' drive), walks from the cottage or a short drive away and the Borrowdale Hotel right next door.

  • "We had an amazing time."

    The only slight negative was that some of the cookery items and beds and sofas were in need of replacing as they are quite worn.

  • "The cottage is great, in particular the seating upstairs would suit any group configuration and having reliable wifi enabled us to contact each other and family not with us, with ease."

    We were delighted the property included towels! We'd like to feedback a couple of points which didn't work so well for us or could be made clearer in the cottage info. It didn't feel as though the cottage is in Rosthwaite altho the online info describes it as such. In fact we liked the fact there were good bus links, but this wasn't promoted.. There wasn't a proper folder with clear info in the cottage. The notice board was very bitty and confusing. Before arrival: We should have been told the cottage landline as it made our food delivery tricky as we didn't realise there was no mobile signal. It could be helpful to mention the back/side door is where the coat hooks and boot shelf are, as we didn't discover this straight away coming in the front door. The garden would benefit from a table and the chairs could be set out in the area of the garden which gets the sun. Although it was no bother to pick keys up before going to the cottage it was more complicated dropping them off at the end and we had not had to do that in a lot of years of cottage holidays! ( Most properties have a key safe system) We can't be the only family group with more than 2 cars? (The info could include the Borrowdale Hotel and their ability to help out with extra visiting cars).

  • "Lovely spacious cottage in a stunning location with a tearoom and restaurant very close."

    The charming garden was a pleasant surprise. The views from the living area are fabulous. We were able to do a variety of walks straight from the door and there is easy access to bus and ferry options if you want to get further afield whilst leaving the car behind. It's handy to be able to pop into Keswick for shopping. Comfortable beds, good showers and a well equipped kitchen. Some of the furnishings upstairs are starting to look a little worn and the spotlights in the ceiling are clearly difficult to access and many are no longer working. This made it a bit gloomy after dark. Overall a great cottage.
