Successful beginnings at Hazelwood - one of our new Keswick cottages.


I’ve recently written a blog about the fact that we have just had the first visitors at one of our new Lake District cottages called Hazelwood, which offers pet friendly group accommodation for up to 18 people in Keswick. 

It’s always slightly nervewracking when the first guests come to a cottage and it’s a relief when the first couple of bookings go well.  Anyway, we’ve just heard back from the visitors and they had a lovely time, despite a bit of a mixed bag with the weather.

“ We just wanted to say thank you for letting us Hazelwood over the weekend. We where expecting a 'cottage' and when we turned up to find out how big the house was, we were over the moon.

The house is absolutely brilliant and nicely located. I have already been spreading the word to friends.  Thanks again”.

We’ve also received some nice feedback today about one of our cottages in Eskdale called Gillbank in Eskdale.  This was one of the first Lake District cottages that Sally took on and it might have been the cottage that gave her sufficient critical mass to actually decide that she was looking after enough cottages to call herself “Sally’s Cottages”.

That was a long time ago now and we have had loads of visitors who have really enjoyed staying at the cottage over the years – it’s a great location, nestling under Scafell but with a bird’s eye view of Eskdale.  Unfortunately, we won’t be taking bookings for the cottage after this year, but it’s is a one off and it has been a great privilege to be able to offer the cottage for visitors to enjoy.

We have just received these comments from the visitors who have just stayed at the cottage the cottage:

“We had a lovely stay thank you.  We were so pleased with the cottage and could not believe how well equipped the kitchen was.  So often you book something ‘online’ and it doesn’t live up to expectations.  This was definitely the opposite.   

We definitely hope to return again soon”.

We have lots of Lake District Cottages in Eskdale and throughout the Lake District, so if you would like to come up and climb Scafell or enjoy watching the lambs gambolling in the fields, then we’ve probably got the perfect cottage for you.

If you are looking for group accommodation in the Lake District, then as well as Hazelwood, we do also have lots of other options throughout the Lake District.
