We found Hillcrest Cottage clean and cosy; well equipped and lovely rooms and garden. It made for a very relaxing home from home break. Kirkland is a lovely little village but there is no shop or pub; not problems for us but potential bookers please be aware. We like this corner of the Lake District because it is less busy than other areas, the walks are fabulous particularly the circuit of Ennerdale Water. We liked the little town of Cockermouth which has a lovely riverside park and some good independent shops. Keswick is a bigger town with some good restaurants and gives access to boats on Derwent Water. Pretty much the perfect holiday.

We've just come back from a week's stay here and we literally did not want to leave, loved our cottage so much from all the quaint features to all the little historic ones, like the coins in the fire and above the kitchen sink, absolutely gorgeous cottage set in the most quietest hamlett of the western lakes, loved the gardens, our 2 dogs loved every minute, we had the best days out in buttermere, St bees, ennerdale water and just endless scenic walks, I could not highly recommend this beautiful cottage if your seeking real country life, can not wait to return, it holds a special place in our hearts xx

Our holiday was challenging, due to animal and bird noise in the roof space we were disturbed constantly. The cleanliness was quite poor and there were several other issues. This was once a beautiful property and the garden is well stocked with amazing plants and I am saddened to put this review in but we had a miserable time and won’t be returning.
