We were visiting for a 50th wedding anniversary celebration. My brother lives in Keswick and his wife's family live in Portinscale, so the cottage was perfect for our needs. A quiet, peaceful location but with an easy flat walk into Keswick. Also a very short walk to the launch. Very comfortable and with everything we could have required. We appreciated the large area for storing muddy boots, etc. We will definitely be recommending to friends and family.
Our favourite pub in the area was the Swinside Inn. All their food was good but the slow cooked lamb was incredible. We also enjoyed a celebration meal at The Chalet in Portinscale and at the same time discovered they did breakfasts. We had a full English on our last morning which set us up well for our 7 hour drive home!
Great base from which to explore this beautiful area.

Cottage was clean, cosy and comfortable but there was no 'welcome pack' and there are no shops in the village so would advise bringing essentials with you. The location is ideal for walkers with lots of places to explore in the area. Lovely walks around Lake Derwent and you can take the launch across the lake to various stops. We chose this cottage because it is 'dog friendly', but the garden is not enclosed- did not matter for us as our dog does not wander. Good value for money.

A lovely cottage in a fantastic situation - literally 100 yards from the local pub which served great food and good entertainment, but not loud enough to disturb you. The cottage was well equipped, the only disappointment being a trickle of water from a broken shower and a really poor hoover which made very hard work of trying to clean up dog hair before leaving. Disappointed at having to strip beds too before vacating!

The booking agent was a plesure to deal with. The information provided with regards to directions and description of accommodation was absolutley spot on. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and the owners have done a first class job of providing just about everything you could think of make your holiday memorable.
We were totally impressed with the level of service and standard of accommodation and for our first time ver holidaying in England we had a very good experience. Thankyou for makeing it worth it.

We both found this cottage a little bit dark downstairs. We were unsure how the heating worked as there was no clear advice on this. We would suggest as an improvement swapping the small old fashioned sofa for a 3 seater and taking away 1 or both armchairs as 1 was certainly never used as not it was not in good position to view the telly. We have stayed in many cottages in & around the Keswick area & this is one which we probably will not book again to be honest. It could do with some modernisation/de-cluttering downstairs. Dining table is too big and takes up too much space.
Plus points were the shed to store our 2 bikes although we could not fit our 2 kayaks in as it had owner's stuff in there. Would be much better if shed was completely empty so that you could benefit from the full storage area. We had to store our kayaks out in the garden which faced the main road so not the most secure of areas.
