Kiln How Cottage is a suberb little cottage for a couple or a single person seeking a quiet retreat. It is warm and cosy and the kitchenette is well-equipped with oven, fridge, microwave , electric kettle and toaster. I would have liked a milk jug and a bread bin, but these are very minor niggles......There is Wi-fi, but no mobile phone signal, andRead more although there are a few items to be purchased at the "Flock-In" cafe any major food shopping has to be done in Keswick.

Kiln How Cottage was a lovely little place to stay. Ideally situated for Borrowdale and the surrounding hills as well as Keswick just up the lake. Well appointed, cozy and just ideal for 2 people (and a dog if you want - I never spotted that until at the property). Comfy bed, clean and tidy. Kitchen has whats needed if you run out of places to eat Read moreout! Alan Hide

Well appointed (though no washer) and everything working. Small but comfortable & well placed away from crowds, yet near enough to Keswick. This valley is one of the best withiut doubt.
