“Great week's stay”
Very spacious, comfy, well equipped accommodation, situated in a quiet area of Keswick with easy access to the centre, either in about 15 mins walking or 5 mins in the car. Whilst instructions manuals for appliances were available the only thing we would have expected, but was not provided was a short information sheet with information such as where the bins are and what day they're collected, what time the heating is set to come on and off,etc. We worked it out pretty quickly so it wasn't a major issue , but we're used to having one provided. An excellent , relaxing week's accommodation and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

The property was comfortable and suitable for our stay. However, the drive up to the property is off road and then when you reach the perimeter of the property it is tarmaced. However, where these two roads meet has been damaged and we were really reluctant and nervous to drive our car over each time. On the up side this meant we did more walking! The property itself was warm, cosy, suitable for 4 adults to stay at a time.

“A pleasant stay in a convenient and lovely spot”
We enjoyed a week at Maple Cottage in mid-June with two friends from Germany who were entranced with the whole experience of seeing the Lakes in wonderful sunny weather. Maple Cottage was adequate for our needs and we enjoyed the views from the shared garden. We had expected to enter the property via a lovely drive as advertised and so the pot holed single track came as a shock. One evening our car stopped half way up and during the half hour it took us to sort things out, we had to stand at each end of the drive to prevent other cars coming up or going down the track. The cottage was cosy but dark as it was off the centre courtyard which even in mid summer gets very little sun. Again, we felt the brochure was a little misleading. However, we were pleased that the central heating could be turned on to warm things up when necessary. We chose this cottage as it is one of the few two bedroomed properties with two shower rooms, which was a real bonus. The ensuite needs a shelf over the sink for toiletries. The lounge area was comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. The kitchen knives need sharpening and if the weather had been bad we were not sure where wet clothes would have hung - probably on the kitchen chairs. The best thing about the cottage is its lovely position with the views from the garden, good carparking and its convenience to Keswick.
“Excellent building, appartment and grounds, unsure about the loc”
The building and the grounds are excellently maintained, clean and well presented; the room was spacious, comfortable and well equipped with washing machine and tumble dryer, dishwasher, cooking facilities and excellent shower and bathrooms. Although the building is divided into a number of appartments we still had a great level of privacy and our stay was not affected by any other residents. The only negative for our party was the location. It was not as close the the town centre of Keswick as we thought. It is around a 25 minute walk to the main shops and pubs and we were making this trip (there and back twise per day), driving was out of the question as we were spening our nights in the pubs. In addition to this the long, secluded drive approach to the accomodation is badly lit (i.e. no street lighting at all) which meant without a torch it was pitch black. This coupled with the rough, non existent tarmac / paving on the drive could become hazzardous, especially in icy weather as it was at the time. The only other suggestion I would make would be to improve the directions provided when booking, it took us at least half an hour driving around the area, with which we are all unfamiliar, until we found our way. Overall though I would recommend the cottage to friends and family, depending on their intentions whilst in the area. If this was to spend the day out, but the evenings and nights in the cottage relaxing I would strongly advise this location.
“Lovely cottage we wish it had a view”
Great cottage to stay in, well equipped kitchen. Plenty of space, decent bedding and room size adequate. Very warm central heating works well, it would have been nice to have a fire as we did not always need the heating. The cottage is in a good position and it is an easy walk into Keswick. Had it been better weather there are grounds to sit in and chairs are provided for outside use. The cottage has no view so if you want to sit by the cottage there is nothing to look at.
The location of Maple Cottage (which is one apartment in a much larger house) is second-to-none. Great views of Blencathra behind and Whitlatter Forest etc. from the front carpark. Also, very conveniently just on the edge of Keswick - we walked in and back several times (with a baby) so it's fine. I liked not being right in the centre. The apartment is very well equipped and clean. The bedrooms and bathrooms were great. The living area/kitchen is a little on the small side for 4 people (plus a baby for us) and if the weather was bad and you had more time there it might get a little claustraphobic. However, this is the only thing I'd say that brings it down. I think overall I would give Maple Cottage a good rating (though annoyingly there is nothing inbetween average and very good, which is a bit stupid!). I would consider something Excellent if I would return to it without hesitation instead of trying a new place, and it doesn't quite get there for me. However, we all had a lovely time (helped by good weather) and the location and facilities were great. Oh - a bit storage area and some hooks on the backs of bathroom doors would have been good!
“A fantastic cottage in lovely grounds”
Me, my brother and a friend spent 7 nights in Maple Cottage and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The cottage has literally everything you need, it is very spacious, comfortable and well maintained. We found it to be ideally situated for our week of Hiking, Kayaking, Ghyll Scrambling and Mountaineering. It is just far enough out of town to make it a very peaceful place with good views of the Derwent Lake and Fells beyond but it is also close enough when you need the shops for food or a nice pub for a pint. It is safe to say we will be back.
“Excellent Cottage in beautiful surroundings”
A beautiful 2 bedroom cottage in the heart of the Lake District. Fieldside Grange is on the outskirts of Keswick, not far from Castlerigg Stone Circle. The town centre is just a 15 minute walk away or 5 minute drive. Keswick is ideally situated to some of the The Lake Districts most beautiful fells.
“Wish we could have stayed forever :)”
We booked the cottage and paid our money with no problems at all. When we arrived at the cottage we were instantly amazed and pleased with our choice. We had our 1 year old daughter with us and consider the cottage to be very safe for children of this age. The location was secluded but not too far from the town. We had a small problem with the heating whilst we were there but it got fixed with no hassle what so ever. We loved the cottage and where it is set, we were lucky enough to have fabulous weather and I honestly can't think of anything negative. I have already looked at available dates for next years holiday! Would definitely stay again.
“The service was very good”
The service was very good- we booked on line which was easy and there were no problems at all. Maple Cottage is warm and cosy and had all the comforts of home. The only down side was the drive up from the main road- I worried about my car at times although we did see deer a few times on the 'hobbit run' as we called it. The cottage is close to Keswick which is useful for nights out.
