As a family of 4 and 2 dogs, we all had a wonderful time at Gallery Cloisters. Oly couldnt have been more welcoming and helpful - a perfect host! The house is fab, quiet, but close enough to Keswick, and with enjoyable walks straight from the house, or within 10/15 mins drive. Recommend it, and hope to go back!

This was our 2nd visit to this lovely cottage. It has great walks from the door. Short 5 min drive to Braithwaite for 4 pubs / eateries. Keswick is a 10 min drive.

Wonderful spacious and clean property within a beautiful quiet village. Owner Oliver could t do enough for us and gave us loads of information about where to go.

This is a lovely, spacious and airy cottage with stunning views. It is a short drive into Keswick, and Cockermouth, and a really pleasant walk into Braithwaite for a pub lunch. We took a 13 month old toddler and were provided with a clean travel cot and highchair, but there are a couple of tiled steps into the kitchen and another couple of steps inRead moreto the lounge area so we needed eyes in the back of our heads.

This is a beautiful cottage, set in a perfect setting with walks galore straight from your doorstep. It's a short car drive (5 mins) to the nearest pub (25 mins if walking). They also own a lovely gallery which serves the most amazing cheese scones with chilli sauce. We will be returning next year :-)

Spacious accommodation plenty of room for our family of five to sprawl in comfort. Good walks from the doorstep, very quiet and peaceful garden. Keswick, with its amenities, a short drive away, or bus if you prefer. Location could only be improved by having a pub within 100m, but that's a big ask.
