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 :)

Hello Hayley, I love getting feedback like this - thank you so much. It's a gem of a cottage, isn't it? The owners' are fabulous and take great pride in the cottage, they always endeavour to ensure guests have a truly memorable experience. How wonderful to have been left a welcome basket - a fantastic start to the holiday festivities. You couldn’t have picked a better location for exploring the beautiful Lakes. I'm thrilled you had a really great time and I hope you made lots of wonderful family memories. Here's to the next break in the Lakes - hope to see you again very soon!

We enjoyed our weekend in the cottage. It was a great location. The only small drawback was the parking as we took a big car & it was quite scary parking it. I would recommend a small car!

We had a great week in this cottage. Normally we stay in or closer to Keswick but decided on Braithwaite for a slight change and we were not disappointed. There was a welcome gift of some local delicacies and basics such as milk which was gratefully received. The cottage was well presented with only a couple of things that could have been better. Parking was not as easy as was expected but it was not a problem. Would definitely recommend.
