Cottage is very nice but we were surprised to see that the lounge and the bedroom were in the same room. It worked ok for us as our dogs are well behaved and stayed on their own beds.

Fantastic location with great views.

Reviewed by Kayleigh, 22nd April 2019

This cottage has excellent views and a great location; the shared garden was great for the dog and there was ample parking. There wasnt a great deal of privacy in the cottage so we wouldnt recommend it for romantic getaways, but otherwise the amenities were good.

Reviewed by Deborah, 7th April 2019

It was beautifully clean and I appreciated mattress and pillow protectors. Small, but was as described and suited us as an older couple very well. The garden was nicely maintained plus garden furniture and so was lovely for a cup of tea and for the dogs. Nice touches like a pint of milk and walk suggestions.

Lovely little cottage in a quiet location. Some great personal touches by the owners - small towels for wet and muddy paws, milk, tea and coffee on arrival etc. Only 10 minutes from Keswick and on the doorstep of the Northern Lakes. We loved our stay and would definitely think of staying there again.

Reviewed by Henrietta, 26th November 2018

We found Elm cottage warm and comfortable and very clean. The cottage had everything we needed and is well situated for easy access to nearby towns and villages where we were pleasantly surprised at how much there was to do in November in the most vial of weather. The Gallery above is a must see. We spent hours up there where we found some unusual Read moregifts. Will definitely come back again. Hide

The studio is in a beautiful area of the Lake district and makes a good base for sight seeing around the North Lakes. Thornthwaite is a small village and there is not much there, so you may need to travel to Keswick for provisions.

Reviewed by Marcia, 20th October 2018

Cosy small studio apartment situated in beautiful Thornthwaite. Owners were very helpful making sure we were able t find the property when we arrived late and in the dark. The apartment does not have all mod cons but given the rental price I consider it offers good value for money.

This is an ideal property for two people, a beautiful location in a lovely village setting. The peace and tranquility of the area are like poetry to the senses

Reviewed by Chris, 11th August 2018
