Beautiful location and lovely, well-appointed cottage!
We loved our stay at this beautiful, updated cottage in the lake district countryside. It was such a spectacular setting, far from the madding crowd. We enjoyed the rural setting that afforded many delightful walks and bucolic views of green pastures full of sheep. We arrived shortly after lambing season and loved to watch the little lambs running and jumping around the fields. The location is close to the charming village of Keswick and the Neolithic stone circle at Castlerigg, a must-visit for lovers of history and druids! The cottage is beautifully renovated and is comfortable and inviting. Highly recommended!
Incredible place to stay
Perfect place, very high standards throughout and plenty of space for 6 people and two dogs! Really clean on arrival.
Beautiful house, clean and comfortable. Amazing location and a wonderful part of the world.
A beautiful cottage in a fantastic location. Close to Keswick which has everything you need for a holiday (pub, supermarket, a few outdoor shops, MTB hire) and more importantly close to a lot of excellent walking and activities.
The cottage is extremely comfortable, and nicely decorated with a good family kitchen and log-burner. A lovely garden too.
Jamie has been really helpful throughout. We hope to be back soon!

Thanks again Jamie.
Keith and happy family.
