For the value of this house for 8 people it is very poorly equipped. Small fridge under the bench, no fry pan only a small wok, with 4 ensuites only one hot shower will work effectively at any other time, parking only for 3 small cars and often have to move all cars to get one out. Many others too much to mention and not recommended as a house suitable for 8. Read more

The cottage was lovely and had plenty of room. It was our first holiday with our 4 month old grandson and his mum and dad so we wanted the space. The bedrooms were all very spacious and it was lovely to have en-suites with them all. The downstairs was fine although the sitting area in the living room was a little dark even with the blind open. Been to Keswick many times, love it there and would definitely book the cottage again.
Only gripe and its very small, there were tools for the fire, and where was the gazebo pictured over the hot tub?
Relaxing, family friendly, central location with views!

Greta Mill was a very special place for me this year.
A gathering together of our two sons and their partners in celebration of my retirement, their father's birthday and one son's return to these shores from being far away for over a year!
Key pick up was straight forward...just down the road, within walking distance.
Lovely contemporary decor.
It had 3 doubles all with en-suites! (quite rare) and was central to Keswick's amenities.
Real ale Pubs,Shopping and the brilliantly stocked Booths!(Not cheap but 5 types of coconut milk to choose from!) so couples could be as independent as they wished, without compromising on my view of the snow capped mountains drinking tea in bed each morning from the front master bedroom.
No rain all week!!
The wonderfully equiped kitchen and large dinning table lead to a type of 'Come Dine With Me' arrangement for eating.
All parties scoring maximum marks.
more intimate eating could have been don by couples in the kitchen or utility / boot sitting room.
Our only regrets were:- Not finding the time to use the Hot Tub, too much time taken up walking, climbing, eating and drinking...though I did luxuriate in the fabulously indulgent bath a couple of times.
Also the master bedroom shower was in need some plugbustering as it overflowed the shower tray.
Front bedroom had busy road noise, but it didn't bother us.
And there were no instructions on the use of the log burner in the cosy little extra room.
So after filling the kitchen with smoke, we abandoned the attempt for hopefully a better informed future visit.
Sadly Greta Mill is up for sale and I can't afford to buy it.
It's not a cheap family holiday option, but, for me, definately worth it'(...also we went at the cheaper time)
So go and enjoy!

Greta Mill is a beuatifully kept property, well equipped and set out to welcome us. All local info was provided in a welcome note, with a bottle of wine in the fridge and a plate of cakes to start our holiday. Even the dogs had a jar of treats supplied! The house is tastefully decorated and furnished and a delight ot stay in. Situated opposite a large park it was perfectly located and there were some good walks to be had in the vicinity. Shopping centre was about 5 minutes walk away and we found Keswick a delightful town. The only thing I missed was a decent, sharp knife for cooking purposes and a cheese grater, so would recommend anyone to take their own; a very minor point! Also worth noting that the beds are doubles in three of the bedrooms, so if you're travelling with friends make sure they are good ones! We all loved the hot tub and it was perfect to fall into after a few hours of hill walking! Would definitely go again.
Fantastic cottage , it made our holiday one of the best we have
