Really really good cottage! Has loads of facilities and excellent. Not much around and no phone signal but that is what you want no?! Massive garden too...Just wanted a hot tub to make it perfect :).
Would book again too. I recommend going into Keswick as only 10mins drive and also under 10mins drive to Lakes station (its a restaurant on a train!) and Lakes Distillery if you want tours etc.

Hi Maneesh, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your break, it's a lovely place to escape from the hustle and bustle for a while isn't it? I'm glad you enjoyed exploring. Come back any time, you can be sure of a warm welcome.

Leethwaite is a beautiful cottage in a wonderful garden overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake and Skiddaw. The lake shore is a ten-minute walk on a woodland path passing alongside the house. Leethwaite is immaculately presented, spacious and very comfortable, a perfect, secluded escape. It would have scored 10 out of 10 had it not been for the following issues: there is constant traffic noise from the nearby A66 in the garden (not in the house); there is no mobile phone signal (o2) in the house and only a weak, intermittent signal in the garden, and no nearby pay phone; the two smart TVs are not linked to an aerial so terrestrial TV and Freeview is not available and you must know your personal BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub login details to access these services, unless you are prepared to create new login accounts. Having no phone or TV can be a blessing if you are seeking an away-from-it-all escape but if you need to be available by phone for family or personal health reasons (as we were), the promotional literature for the cottage should specify that mobile signals are very unreliable. Having said all that, Leethwaite Cottage is a fabulous venue and we hope to return.

Hi Andrew, thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your break, it's a lovely place to escape from the hustle and bustle for a while isn't it? The lack of mobile signal is a common issue in the Lakes but the cottages does have fibre optic broadband ensuring a fast and strong internet connection.I hope you enjoyed exploring this beautiful part of the Lakes. Come back any time, you can be sure of a warm welcome.
