    “Perfect Cottage in the perfect location”

    We have just returned from a week in Garth Cottage. The cottage was exceptionally clean and tidy, all the beds made up and towels provided. The kitchen was fully equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery and there were also a few dishwasher tablets to get us started. Plus Wi-fi was included and the tv had a Blu-ray player. The instruction manual folder needs updating - we couldn't work out how to empty the vacuum cleaner. ...

    We have just returned from a week in Garth Cottage. The cottage was exceptionally clean and tidy, all the beds made up and towels provided. The kitchen was fully equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery and there were also a few dishwasher tablets to get us started. Plus Wi-fi was included and the tv had a Blu-ray player. The instruction manual folder needs updating - we couldn't work out how to empty the vacuum cleaner. The location was ideal, just off the M6, with public footpaths from the doorstep. Great road links to all the Lakes. The cottage has some information leaflets (although they need updating a little). It was a little noisy from the road at the back of the garden (there is no privacy) but this didn't bother us too much. Just a couple of niggles: - garden wasn't fully secure for dogs - there was a hole in the fence to next door's garden and there was a gap under the front gate. We read a previous review about this and took some chicken wire with us, which we put along the gate when we were in so the dogs could roam free. - a separate toilet would have been great - 4 adults queuing for the bathroom... I appreciate this isn't a quick fix but if the owners were looking to do a bit of work, then that is all that is needed Overall, we would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a base in the Lake District.

About the location

PENRITH

Keswick 17 miles; Carlisle 20 miles.

The bustling market town of Penrith, once the capital of Cumbria, enjoys a central position between the Lake District and North Pennines and is ideally placed for taking in all that the region has to offer. Renowned for its wealth of specialist shops, the sandstone buildings of Penrith hide intriguing yards, lanes and alleyways, with a myriad of attractive cottages, gardens and little shops. With a wide choice of excellent pubs, hotels, restaurants and entertainment, Penrith also offers a museum, and Millennium Trails round the historic city streets. Within easy reach of the town is Rheged – an innovative visitor centre with shops, restaurants, exhibitions and a giant cinema screen showing educational and informative films. Brougham Castle (The Windsor of the North), Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England) and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away, as is the stunning scenery of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
