Second visit to Birch Cottage - under new ownership - but the changes are for the better - with revised layout of main dining room. Lovely home from home in quiet village and easy drive to many of the Lakeland Hills. Very friendly hosts.

A comfortable, fully-equipped cottage on the doorstep of Keswick with beautiful views of Skiddaw. The location manages to feel remote while maintaining easy access to the local amenities of Keswick and the surrounding villages. Also very close to the A66 in the north-west of the Lakes, so most destinations in the Lake District are very reachable.

What a find and what a view! A very comfortable and well equipped warm and cosy cottage. In a great location with the Whinlater forest in the doorstep -no driving necessary as well as a short drive to Keswick for all the essentials.
