Had a great week here, thank you all. Suited us very well with lovely walks from the door and easy scenic drives to Ullswater & the wider district.
Caretaker Ann was very helpful with directions, tips for walks & happy to be contacted though we had no need to.
Comfortably furnished & equipped, great WiFi and sky, dshwasher & washing machine too!
Excellent welcome pack, directions and tips for walks for the dog! loved the homemade marmalade (thank you Emma)
Would definitely come again.

Oh my goodness, what's not to like about Gate Cottage! We had a thoroughly enjoyable week in this delightful cottage which is very rural but only a few minutes drive away fron Keswick. It's in a great location and bery peaceful but with a pub serving decent food a couple of minutes walk away. Lovely views from the cottage with nice walks from the door. A bird table right outside the kitchen window so you can watch the birds feeding at close quarters. An enclosed garden so your dog is quite safe. Lovely comfy beds you don't want to get out of. A nice powerful shower upstairs and a shower downstairs, although we didn't use it. My only moan is that the lounge is a chilly room so if you're not hot blooded, take a cardigan! However, in all fairness, once the fire is lit and the curtains are closed over the doors, the room soon warms up. There was a bountiful welcome pack for both us and the dog on our arrival. We had a lovely week in this cottage which we would highly recommend and we cannot wait to return.

Hi Jill, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I just love getting feedback like this! I am sorry if you were unable ot make use of the radiators at the cottage. Ann the housekeeper would have been glad to show you how to turn up the radiators (which can easily be put on boost), and clear instructions are provided. I'm so pleased you had a wonderful holiday, it's the perfect place to relax and recharge the batteries isn't it? I hope you can plan a return visit soon, you can be sure of a warm welcome.

Hello Jo, thanks so much for your feedback! It's such a marvellous cottage, isn't it?! The price of Gate Cottage has increased to reflect the significant upgrades that the owner has been making to the property. Guests will now have the added benefits of gorgeous redecoration, complete with lovely new flooring and carpets, new radiators, sound system and dishwasher, and faster broadband. The owners have endeavoured to make sure that it is still competively priced for a cottage of that size and quality in the area. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and I do hope you will plan a return visit to the beautiful Lakes very soon.
