What a find !

  • 5 of 5

River Cottage is a beautifully maintained cottage . The attention to detail is stunning and spotlessly clean.

My husband and I particularly loved the sound of running water from the river behind the cottage. Can't wait to visit again and enjoy the patio outside with a glass of vino !

Our daughter loved the huge bath !

So easy to walk into Keswick and access some of the most amazing walks on your doorstep.

Owners were nearby too which is a huge bonus .

A fantastic start to 2018 .

Pros and cons

  • 3 of 5



Comfy beds

Well situated

Light and airy


Badly chipped crockery

Slow rate of drainage in upstairs bathroom

Dishwasher not useable as it left grit on plates even after cleaning the spray arms

Kitchen not well equipped with utensils even tho large amt of cupboard space

No hanging space for dresses in front bedroom

No place for soap when taking a bath

Mould in shower cubicle

During the week the road outside was resurfaced. Large noisy machines woke our friends in the front bedroom and our exit and entrance was hampered.

Fabulous property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The property was exceptionally well equipped with everything you needed to ensure a pleasurable stay. Everything was very modern and the property was extremely spacious and comfortable. It was only a few minutes walk to Keswick town centre which was so convenient. Would definitely recommend this property for anyone looking for a relaxing break away. Views from the windows of the mountains in the distance were fabulous. Thank you.

The property was very clean, functional and beautifully presented. The listing description was nearly accurate. No mention was made that the bathroom and shower room were not on the same floor, and that neither was en-suite.

Loads of room downstairs,nice back garden area. Plenty of room to park three cars to front and side of the property.

Best bit was the wonderful location close to the centre of town.

We would definitely recommend it to others and have already booked for next year!

About Stephen Lyle-Mason

We are Stephen & Di Lyle-Mason. Di has lived in this most beautiful town of Keswick since she was 12 years old. It took me a few more years to join her. We have had our Guest House (Stonegarth) since 1990 and purchased our first self catering property, Fernbank House (ref E16680 ) in 1996. We chose this house as we believed there was a gap in the market for a high quality house that could sleep ten. In 2004 we seized the opportunity to purchase Porch Cottage (ref E16717) This grade 2 listed cottage dates back to 1698 and was in need of a complete restoration. We hope you like the results.

In 2013 we kept walking past what is now known as River Cottage (ref E16653) . After saying to each other that we shouldn't get another property, we went for a viewing. The rest as they say is history.

Stephen Lyle-Mason purchased this cottage in 2013
