Had a fabulous week helped by perfect weather. Mell View Cottage is a lovely little place with all mod cons. [Unless you need broad band-type technology.]Just outside the main drag of the Lake District which means peace and quiet. Ample parking. Great for young family, I guess - we were two parents and one grown son.
Happy to recommend this cottage. Admin went like clockwork.

One of the best cottages we've stayed in. Very clean, well-presented and equipped, warm (underfloor heating and a wood-burner!)and comfortable. The only things missing were oven gloves and a tea-cosy! Cottage is very light with windows back and front, and there are lovely views even from the bathroom! The red squirrels who visited the garden were a special treat! Ideally situated, only 15-20 mins from shops at Penrith/Keswick, yet still only an hour or so to the wilds of Ennerdale, Eskdale, and Wasdale. There are lovely walks on the doorstep, if you don't feel like driving. Definitely one to re-visit!

This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this cottage,it is not too far from Keswick,yet is set in a wonderful quiet location,it has excellent facilities throughout,my only criticisms would be the small freezer box in the refrigerator,OK if you are eating out all the time and the complicated heating system controls.The decking outside overlooking Great Mell Fell is excellent on a fine sunny evening for watching the sun go down with a large gin & tonic.
