This cottage was of the highest standard and most comfortable and very large. Well situated for travelling, walking and the Town Centre. The area was quite and the view from the veranda was breathtaking. The bedrooms were large and comfortable. Bathrooms a plenty and the Kitchen was extremely well stock with equipment and utensils. I can comfortable say we will stay again in this superb accommodation and most certainly recommend it to all.

Booking was straight forward, friendly professional staff to hand to help and advise. Accomodation exceeded our expectaions on all fronts. Clean, spacoius, excellent views from the sun balcony. Private location but within walking distance of Keswick.
Car parking was off road but I think you would struggle to with more than 2 reasonably sized cars. Slope down to garage is to avoided at all costs. Gardens were a delight. Tvs in Bedrooms would be welcomed. Would book again and recommend to friends.

The cottage is in an excellent location on Chestnut Hill with spectacular views across to Skiddaw and Keswick from the balcony terrace or the enormous picture window in the lounge (it truly makes you go wow!!!) It takes about 20 - 30 mins to walk to/from Keswick centre. (a bit of a drag on the way back uphill).
The cottage has been done up to a very high spec and has a feel of a boutique hotel. The bedrooms are spacious (2 being en-suite) and the open plan living room/kitchen is perfect for group meals/living. The attached garage is useful for storing bikes / walking gear and there is a useful utility room with washing machine.
The cottage has pretty much everything you will ever need in it; fully kitted out kitchen with coffee machine (Braun, Tassimo), wine fridge, utensils etc. The lounge has a flat screen TV and DVD player (not that you'll want to watch TV with a view like you get here!!) The terrace has a charcoal BBQ and there are BBQ tools. The beds are comfortable with nice linen and towells are provided.
The only negative is that the garden is a little bit on the small side, if that's important to you. However, you have the whole of the Lakes to play in, so not a massive issue.
This is a fantastic cottage in a great location and i highly recommend it for a family or group of friends who want a luxurious place to stay. (We stayed with 6 adults and 3 children comfortably).

Cloud End is the perfect house for a group of friends to enjoy a weeks holiday walking in the Lake District. The central location enabled us to walk CatBells, Scarfell Pike, and Walla Cragg. The scenary from the large window in the lounge is breathtaking, Cloud End is the best appointed house we have ever stayed in and it met the needs of all eight of us. Keswick is a pretty town with lots of shops suitable for walkers plus Booths the rather upmarket supermarket. The scenary in the Lakes is breathtaking especially when snow is on the fells and the sun is shining, the Derwent Water Ferry is ideally situated for either a trip around the water or to hop on and off in different locations following a walk, just check the timetable and hail the ferry. Parking in Keswick is expensive but a permit is available in the house. Grasmere and ambleside are also well worth visiting especially Sarah Nelsons Gingerbread in Grasmere. All in all a fantastic holiday and we will certainly be returning to the Lake District and using Lake Cottage Holidays again.

Having stayed at many holiday homes across the UK we were blown away by the quality of Cloud End. Not only is it well laid out, it is also very well equipped. Its a little further out of Keswick town centre than we would normally stay but it is worth the extra walk. Can't wait to go back again

Taking the whole deal, it was ideal for the Convention in Skiddaw street & very adequate in every aspect. Located as it was with buses outside the road & not too far to walk into Keswick. getting back more of a challenge because of it's uphill location! The only thing which caused us a problem was the failure of one of the shower room fans & the lack of any action to repair in spite of repeated requests.
We did have a very good week.
"Wonderful house with the most amazing veiws in the Lakes, surely"

Cloud End has everything you require, the owners had thought of everything to make our stay feel like home from home. The views from the lounge and the balcony are incredible and we were lucky to have a heat wave throughout our stay and we spent 12 hours a day on the balcony just admiring the views. The walk to the Town was very pleasant through lovely streets. The Town is lovely and the people extremely welcoming. I feel awful saying this but we could have done with a parasol on the balcony as it reached 35 degrees up there some days!!! Perfect holiday and we are going to book for next year.

Everything worked the house accomodates 8 with ease and the furnishings and equipment were of high quality.
Views from lounge are supurb.
Only fault was statement that nearest pub is 400 yards away. It is in fact about 3/4 mile away and down a steep hill! The ads should be revised to explain this. We did not think it was viable to walk into the town either after a full day out on the fells.
"A really well equipped, comfortable holiday home"

Cloud end is a bit like the Tardis - much bigger and better equipped than it looks from the outside. It's been recently renovated and a lot of thought has gone into making it feel cosy. The view is great and in the summer I'm sure the terrace would be lovely. Wifi would have been a plus.
