“Cosy refuge from the lake district rain”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2013

Cosy , well maintained and very well equipped cottage. This has to be the warmest cottage we have stayed in over the past 15 or so years. As keen walkers we welcomed the warm boiler room and laundry facilities which dried out our clothes ready for the next day. Plenty of room for people and dogs, lovely lounge and farmhouse style kitchen. The owners were friendly helpful and generous. Dogs are not allowed upstairs in the lounge and that would have been helpful to know before we went.

“Ideal holiday home”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2013

Our family really enjoyed our holiday in this beautiful quiet location. The house is very well equiped, very comfortable. The Shield family very welcoming, local eating houses very good but suggest booking for wheatsheaf as it is very popular and dogs are welcome. We found lots to do and Keswick is not far to go. The only negative was that the third bedroom is small and would be better as a single room. We would certainly return and recommend it to others.

“A great retreat in one of the Lake District's quieter areas”

Reviewed 24 May 2013

Four men of a certain age who in Last of the Summer Wine style, walk, eat, drink and talk about anything and everything. All good cooks and whisky/wine lovers. All we need each year is good walking, any weather and a decent cottage to do our thing. We got this at Scales Cottage, with a good sized kitchen/diner for our culinary efforts, comfortable bedrooms and a fine lounge. All very clean and set in lovely location.

“Warm, friendly & secluded”

Reviewed 19 Nov 2012

The description advertised is exactly what you get. Considering that we rented in winter, the cottage was very well heated/insulated. The owners supplied logs for the wood burner. The excellent sound insulation is worthy of note too. With 4 adults and 3 dogs (Staffy & 2 Boxers) we had plenty of space. The slate floors and boot room made the post walk clear up easy too. Animal lovers need to be aware that there are cattle, sheep and chickens near-by. One of us has walking disabilities but the cottage layout worked well. Roughly 8 steps to get to the front door (cleary shown in photos) and then did not need to move from the ground floor. Though not suitable for wheelchairs due to the steps). One plus for us, but probably a downside for it buffs, was the poor mobile reception inside the house. Two of our party took advantage of the trout fishing on a wet and windy day. thoroughly enjoying the experience. The best recommendation is that we looked to book again, next year. Sadly the date wanted had already been booked.

“Lovely stay in cosy cottage with great views”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2012

The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. We particularly liked the kitchen with the wood burner, and the large lounge upstairs. Very dog friendly downstairs with tiled flooring, and enclosed garden outside. Enjoyed our morning walks around the fishing lake as well. Peaceful location, but close enough to Cockermouth and Keswick, Loweswater and Buttermere. Washing machine and tumble dryer were a bonus as we did have a muddy mountain bike ride. We would definitely go back again.

“Beautiful peaceful cottage”

Enjoyed our stay in well-appointed cosy cottage. Great views from lounge. Peaceful location.

“Lovely property”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2011

The property is in a very quiet location on a working farm. The owners live nearby and were very welcoming. The property is very well equiped and the 2 main bedrooms were large and comfortable which suited our party of 4 adults and 1 baby perfectly. Many of the Lake District attractions were within a 30 minute drive and the pub in the village served excellent food.

“excellent for all the family”
