Very disappointing. Damp smelling with black mould behind the beds in the second bedroom. Shower was poor and ventilation an issue. Beautiful views but the property was not in a good condition when we visited and we moved to a different property. The owner assured us that they would resolve the damp and mould issues for future guests.

A lovely quiet cottage to holiday with your dog and in a fantastic location, close to all the attractions. The garden is a bonus as it's completed enclosed which means dogs can't escape and the views are stunning. Keswick is a short drive away with plenty of places to eat and drink.

Thornthwaite Birch is in a perfect location for the Northern and Western Lakes. It's a good size for a couple or a small family and the garden is dog proof which gave us some security for letting our pooch out for exercise.

There is also a lovely, short, easy walk to the edge of Bassenthwaite Lake. Hide

The cottage was very clean and well set out on one floor. The garden was shared between the three cottages and we had lovely neighbours who had dogs and we all got on well together. Lovely views and the location was great . Would recommend and definitely would stop again.

Lovely clean cottage in a quiet village.Comfy quilt and bed. Well equipped. Carpets lovely but need a larger door mat or washable flooring near the entrance would be better for wet feet and paws! Washing machine available but would have prefered this in the cottage. Good walks for the dogs locally.

We had an amazing time in the Lake District staying in the Thornthwaite Birch Cottage.
