The cottage met all our needs and it was lovely to be next to the river. We had a gorgeous week of weather but I wonder if we'd have struggled with out little one and bad weather in this cottage. the décor wasn't really to our taste - a bit 'olde worlde' and floral but it met our needs. May want to take coffee, tea and sugar with you or like us after a long journey you have to go straight to the shops!
It was great access for us to the Keswick convention and not too long a walk into the town, and really close to Fitz Park which was great! However if you want to be close to Derwent water and the shops you may want to find somewhere nearer to the town centre. Also really handy to have to off road parking. The cottage guide needs a little updating about recycling etc.
We used this cottage for a 3 night break. Despite proximity to road, set well back and very quiet. Gas fired "log burner" kept us cosy. Clean and comfortable, ideal for 2, but would be a bit tight for 4 adults. Bunk beds in 2nd bedroom better for family. We parked the car(good parking) and then walked from cottage into keswick for the evening, and again from cottage to ashness Bridge and Rosthwaite and caught bus back to Keswick. Bp station almost opposite has Londis shop which stocks all essentials, Booths supermarket in Keswick good.
Weather not too good for our stay but patio area at back overlooks the river so should be good in the "summer".(a bit overlooked by adjacent cottages patios.

Thank you for your recent review for this property.
The owner of this property has asked for the following response to be issued.
The three piece suite was due for replacement in August 2012, which was done, and a November inspection by Visit Britain confirmed the cottage's 3-star rating.
All bedlinen used in the property is Sanderson bedlinen; our dedicated housekeeper lives close by and would have addressed the issue if the guests had raised it during their stay.
We apologise for any inconvenience that may have detracted from your holiday.

We stayed in this cottage about 5 years ago, and forgot how great it was.
Lovely to be able to sit by the river and have breakfast.
10 minutes walk in to town to our favourite italian restaurant wich now has an italian style gelato/cafe too.

The cottage was clean, warm and cosy. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. It was too cold to sit outdoors, but had we been able to the back patio overlooking the river was perfect. The bed was comfy, constant hot water and plenty of cupboards, what more can we say?
We have given service 3 stars because we feel the managing agents could have been a little more helpful after I had foolishly left some jewellery behind.

The cottage was clean, tidy and well situated for the town. It also has a lovely view of the river. The only negative aspect of the stay was the fact the heating on the ground floor would not work on the first night, leaving us rather cold (the gas fire gives out little heat). A call to the office was not especially helpful as the only suggestion was to collect an electric heater (they couln't deliver as there was only one member of staff on duty, and we couldn't drive as we had enjoyed wine with our meal).
I have left this comment elsewhere but did not receive a reply.

The house was immaculate. There were lots of tourist information leaflets, books & videos for the kids to watch indoors if needed. Everything we needed was in the kitchen in logical places!! Shop in garage just across the road. Within walking distance of the park & swimming pool. Just fab - will try & return next year ...
