This is without doubt the best cottage we have ever stayed at in the Lake District. The location was superb, the cottage layout was superb, the facilities in the cottage were superb (you get the idea!) If you like walking straight from your doorstep, then this is the place to be. A choice of at least half a dozen varied range of walks as soon as you go out your door. Very sad to leave but will definately be back.
Great holiday location supported by fabulous accommodation.

Fabulous cottage with panoramic views towards Cat Bells and Swinside.
The accommodation was perfect, and a small problem with toilet during the stay was efficiently dealt with.
Perhaps it is nit picking but after a ferry journey and 240 mile drive one would have expected to have been able to have a cup of tea or coffee on arrival. Not so, it was, back in the car again to go shopping. It was lack of little basics such as initial coffee or tea making ability, no spare toilet rolls or hairdryer for example that robbed this splendid cottage of a five star rating from me.
It was a great area to explore and walk in but Cumbria is a parking rip off area so we kept clear of Keswick for meals out, dining at local out of town establishments with free car parks.
Overall, we enjoyed the holiday but will stick to Dumfries and Galloway in future as Cumbria and Keswick definitely does not welcome motorists.

Everything was excellent. First class accommodation at an unbelievable price. Fantastic walks from the door, what more could you ask for.
Far exceeded our already high expectations

We were already looking forward to our stay, because the pictures on the
website looked great, but when we actually set foot in The Byre we were
jumping for joy, as it was so much better than we'd expected; we just
couldn't believe that we had this fabulous place all to ourselves.
If I could change just one thing about The Byre itself, it would be to have a
better quality quilt on the bed, as the one we had (though warm) was a bit
If I could change one thing about the area, it would be to have a pub just a
little bit closer to walk to, as the roads are a little daunting at night, even
with a torch. That said, we didn't want to venture out much of an evening
anyway, as The Byre is such a comfortable home from home.
Aw, who am I kidding? It's miles better than our home anyday! Our only
disappointment was that it wasn't available for us to book immediately for
the following October, but we'll certainly be back.

Fantastic accommodation, location absolutely faltless and I could not have been happier - didn't want to leave, really enjoyed the surrounding walks, the off-road walk into Keswick, stunning. Mr & Mrs Constable who own it popped over and were really friendly and helpful - next time we will bring along an ordnance survey map!! Will definitely be coming back
Simply the best

Everything about this cottage was superb. The directions were spot on. The accommodation was to the highest specification.Nothing had been overlooked to make our stay comfortable. Truly a home from home.The views were lovely and there was plenty of wild life in the garden to while away the time. We wanted a relaxing peaceful location and that's what we got.
There were plenty of good pubs around serving excellent food and a good supermarket in Keswick for daily essentials.
We were sorry to leave and couldn't find anything to fault it.

Despite Lots of rain we had a great time in the Lake District, this cottage being a major factor. The quality of the accomodation meant that simply being IN the cottage, watching the weather and the changing view through the 'window wall' was delightful. Great location, too; we started walks from the cottage door several times.
