Part of a delightful and imaginative barn conversion, this bright, cosy and spacious apartment is perfect for families, walkers and cyclists discovering this spectacular part of the Lake District.

The Swinside Inn serving good food and ales is a pleasant 30-minute walk from the apartment.

Little Town which is a gentle stroll from the accommodation was the setting for Beatrix Potter's Mrs Tiggy Winkle. The village of Braithwaite and the market town of Keswick with its numerous amenities are only 3 miles away. For a lovely relaxing evening out there is the wonderful Theatre by the Lake in Keswick.

Stunning views with Catbells on your doorstep. Clean, modern, ten minute car journey into Keswick. The cottage is on the ground floor so the noise from people upstairs might bother some people. Dog friendly, but there is a farm right next door and it isnt secure, so wandering sheep mean they must always be on the lead.

This cottage is situated in a beautiful location, walking from the door step with a short drive to Keswick and Buttermere. The spa passes were an added bonus and was fantastic after sore legs on the hills.

This cottage has so much going for it but it is let down by a poor standard of equipment, 3 dinner plates in a cottage for 4 people was the tip of the iceberg for us, its tired and needs some TLC which wouldnt take the owner much effort, it also didnt come across as having been cleaned after the last occupancy which is disappointing

Lovely apartment, well equipped and tastefully furnished. We had a very comfortable stay, the only downside being the noise from the people in the apartment above, especially the creaky floorboards. If you take your dog, it is worth noting that the yard is not enclosed so all exercise/toilet outings have to be done on the lead. Not a problem for usRead more, but maybe for some. Hide

Cosy cottage with a beautiful view. Bed was comfortable. Lounge, kitchen and dining room was perfect for the stay. Newlands Cottage suitable for family or couple. Dog friendly. You can hear people who have hired upstairs using the toilet and cupboards. Had to go to sleep at the same time as they we're loud. We arrived to swarm of flys in the loungeRead more so had to go get spray and clean parts of the home due to cobwebs, not what you need after a 7 hour journey. Overall a good stay. Hide

A comfortable cottage with double and twin bedrooms. The kitchen area is compact but fine. The location has beautiful views over the Newlands Valley towards Cat Bells and Maiden Moor. The lack of WiFi was probably good for us although we did find ourselves sitting outside too much (still rather chilly in April) to have a mobile phone signal!
