We have booked with Lakes Cottage Holidays before and again everything was simple & very straightforward. The cottage was warm, compact and had everything we needed for our weekend away with the dog. It has been renovated to a high standard, comfortable and tasteful furnishings, heating was easy to control, as was the shower. It was located close to the town centre, just a short walk away, we love Keswick and feel its our second home! We hope to return to this lovely cottage again soon. Read more

The service we received from the company was excellent. The cottage was lovely, it would have been better with a carpet in the lounge. What I didn't like was the lack of a back door. There was everything in it that you needed, but felt cold and not very homely. The location was great for what we wanted, hardly had to use the car at all. We would have liked Freeview TV. Read more
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Swinside.
The comments raised above have been passed to the owner and they have advised the following: -
A decision was made not carpet the lounge as this would make the property more pet friendly and hygienic.
There is no back door because the property does not own any of the area outside the rear of the property. Access is only by permission of the neighboring property owners.
This property does have Freeview TV and central heating. There is also a wall heater if guests feel they need extra heat.
Swinside is a well loved and popular holiday cottage in the centre of Keswick. It is a typical stone property with local amenities close at hand.
We hope that these issues did not spoil your stay and we hope to welcome you back to one of our properties in the future.
The cottage was very comfortable with everything we needed.

It was very easy picking up the key for the cottage. The location is very near the town centre and park(s). The cottage is very clean and comfortable with instructions about oven central heating etc... clearly marked also leaflets about what to do, where to eat etc..
Modern, clean with everything you would need

Lovely traditional cottage but with a modern and bright interior. Perfect size and loved the kingsize bed with a really comfy mattress. 5 minutes walk from town centre but peaceful and quiet. 10 minutes walk from Castle Wood which was beautiful with Bluebells everywhere and perfect for walking the dogs - also had a handy bin close to the entrance for dog waste. Would love to stay in Swinside again and will be looking to book next year.
Lovely cottage in a convenient location

Booking through Lakes Cottage Holidays was efficient as always. We chose Swinside because it was available to book in advance for a short break and we were not disappointed. The cottage is clean and comfortable and is in a quiet, but convenient location. The walking maps were a nice touch.

Good location - within easy walking distance to lake and the town centre. The house was clean, tasteful and well equipped. We slept very well. There is plenty to do nearby with or without a car. Having free wifi is a big selling point for us. We were a bit chilly at times but that's pobably why there are blankets and throws to snuggle into! For eating out there are plenty of pubs to choose from. Supermarkets are also easily accessible, as is the bus station. For quiet nights in or rainy days there are plenty of books, information, games, Dvds and freeview TV.

We found booking online very easy and the staff at Cottage Holiday group were friendly and happy to help. The cottage was small but adequate for our needs and was extremely well appointed. The location was good - quiet and only a short walk to all facilities the town offerred

A Lovely home from home

We were very happy with Swinside. It was very tastefully decorated and had every modern amenity needed. It was quite modern but still had charm and was cosy.It was perfectly situated for access to everything Keswick has to offer. My only small gripe is that parking was occasionally difficult to find outside the cottage and the central heating was a little bit complicated and didn't really warm the house that much. The cottage is perfect for couples and we'd definitely stay there again.

We had a lovely week at Swinside. Everything there we could possibly need. Appreciated the maps, torches, books, dishwasher, plenty of cutlery and crockery, nice big mugs, very comfortable kingsize bed. Great to have WiFi. Parking wasn't always easy, but we managed. Friendly neighbours. No garden or space to sit outside, but an ideal location for walking to the Lake or town (where there are plenty of benches to sit on). Spar shop very near, open long hours. Lots of lovely walks from house or from short drives away. Plenty of space for the 2 of us.
We would recommend Swinside to other couples (probably not families), who wanted a good base for exploring Keswick and the Lakes.
Beautiful cottage close to all amenities

We had a relaxing holiday in a beautiful cottage close to all amenities. Will definitely be staying again soon.
Quaint & contemporary. They can co-exist.
Left on 01/05/2012 for a stay in December 2011 | Stefan Gallagher
From the pictures this cottage looked well finished and yes, contemporary. But on arrival it became immediately clear there was more. Firstly it seems bigger but more importantly they have managed to preserve the original cottage feel. A welcoming fire awaited us on our late arrival helping us feel on holiday proper after a wet and windy journey. The cottage is in the heart of the town but away from any busy roads. Perfect access to the hills or shops depending on the weather and your legs.
We'll be back again. Lets hope it stops raining by then!

We spend most of our time out on the fells and need a well equipped and comfortable place to stay with our dog. Swinside ticked the boxes. Having the wi-fi to check the Mwis was a bonus.

Swinside in a perfect, quiet location close to the town centre. It is clean, well furbished, well equipped and I would definitely love to stay there again if I wanted to do some walking around the Keswick area.
Happy dog owner
Left on 10/27/2011 for a stay in October 2011 | Happy dog owner
I visited for a photography trip and brought my dog I found Swinside to be a well thought out accommodation and pet friendly, easy to keep clean, but small so if you have a lot gear, backpacks, boots etc you need to be tidy. It's a short walk to the centre of town and Lake Derwent, which I loved. The weather during my stay was cold and wet and I had some things that couldn't be dried in the tumble dryer which were still damp the next day because the heating was a bit low. Dogs are not allowed upstairs but the stairs are open plan off the lounge so the only way of definitely keeping the dog downstairs was to lock him in the kitchen. A baby gate would be a small adjustment they could make.
Overall though I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, there is a dishwasher and a huge stack of plates, but I still only used one cup, bowl, tea plate and dinner plate all week!
The decoration and furniture was of a very high standard for holiday accommodation. For a trip where you are going to be out all day it's the perfect place to return to at night and recharge your batteries and excellent value for money.
