Unfortunately what at first appeared to be a fairly nice cottage, turned out to be run down, extremely damp and quite dirty. I thought we could cope but as the week went on my asthma became really bad and after moving furniture when leaving we discovered a severe damp problem in both bedrooms with black mould on the walls. This must have been knownRead more about and to be honest, discovering this issue made me really angry at how much money we had spent and how ill I had become as a result. Hide

The cottage was fabulous. Very comfortable and there was a lovely view from the lounge window. Really nice to come back to after a day out. The location was quiet too, but only a few minutes drive from Keswick. There was also the adjoining cafe that offered a much needed cup of tea and cake to the rear of the property, which was also a gallery withRead more some very nice craft items and pictures for sale. Would highly recommend a stay there. Hide

Great location for many walks from the door, comfortable cottage for four and a dog. The Lake district is really not the place for an Electric car as there are only four working chargers in the area of any use with large queues waiting to charge. We also have found this in most places now but will now look to find cottages with charging capability Read morein the future Hide
