Hi, my name is Jude. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I aim to provide self catering accommodation that is clean, comfortable, warm but most importantly dog friendly. I had 3 dogs of my own and found it incredibly hard to find anywhere that would allow me to take all 3 dogs and to feel comfortable whilst there so my I have made sure that my cottages are dog friendly. I love walking the fells, photography and wildlife and find The Lakes ideal for all hobbies.
The Northern Lakes are a fantastic base for exploring the whole of The Lake District. The properties are close enough to town but far enough out to avoid the busyness. They are set in a fantastic area to use as a base for walks.
I love the abundance of wildlife that is both at and around the cottages. There are paths up Skiddaw, Carlside, Dodd from the door, a quiet high level road that you walk into Keswick or a low level path that follows the river in to Keswick. The views are breathtaking looking over Bleaberry Fell and Grisedale Pike. At the cottages you have the peace and quiet yet Keswick with its abundance of dog friendly pubs and good grub are only 2.5miles away.
This was our second stay in this cottage and we just love it. Very clean and spacious and has everything you need. Dogs are made very welcome. It's perfect! Booked again for next year.
this is a very well equipped cottage with everything a family needs for a great holiday, the location is superb off the main road in a quiet location , the cottage is also great for anyone with dogs as the garden is enclosed so they can run free the owner Jude is just a phone call away should you require any assistance with the property i would not hesitate to recommend this cottage
