Good position for Keswick and Ullswater. At back of pub but no problem with noise ,and pub food good. Bit sparse on equipment, we mentioned lack of light bulbs and toilet seat cover to owner, so hopefully these have been addressed. It seems that they rely on departing guests to clean the cottage. But overall we had a great short break there.

The location of the cottage is great, but the cleanliness was very poor. It smelt of mould, it was dirty and sticky. The shower door at the en suit barely closed and the bathroom was flooding every time we used it.

Hi Nikki, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review of Blencathra. Troutbeck is so handy for everywhere, and having a pub on the doorstep ..... I have passed your concerns on to the owner who would have been happy to address them had she been aware of them during your stay. I would be more than happy to help you to choose the perfect cottage for your next stay in The Lakes.

Enjoyable but the location wasn’t what we expected. Pub food in pub next door was excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at beautiful Blencathra. The food at The Troutbeck Inn is delicious isn't it? I hope you will return to the Lakes soon, and if you need any help on locations, I would be delighted to assist.
