A fantastic stay in a great location! The cottage was well-equipped, clean, comfortable, and had everything we could need. A great location outside of the busier areas, but close enough for a quick drive into Keswick - or a long walk! Lovely and quiet in the evenings, with plenty of lanes and quiet road for taking the dog out early in the morning!
