- For us, Highbridge Cottage was just perfect! We had everything we needed and lots of things we didn't realise we would need (torches, backpack). It is clear that the owner has put so much thought in to the cottage. It is decorated beautifully and we just loved all the little touches like the stacks of books, the maps etc placed around. The beds were very comfortable. The welcome basket was a lovely touch. We cooked our Christmas Dinner for us, our 2 children and my parents (who were staying near by) and the kitchen was more than well equipped to make it perfect. It is perfectly placed in between the Royal Oak and the Coledale Inn - both child friendly and serve lovely food. The Whinlatter Forest is 5 min drive away, as is Keswick - it is also on the bus route to Keswick or a nice hour walk. The parking space is a bit of a squeeze but there is plenty of easy parking on the road in Braithwaite, so we didn't find it an issue. We will definitely book to come here again. My 3 year old cried when we were leaving asking why we cant just stay there forever - says it all :)
