Lovely location in Newlands Valley with great views! Great for doing walks straight from the cottage with a wide choice of mountains/routes to take.
Quite isolated - no shops etc. nearby so don't stay here if you don't like that (we didn't mind).
Cottage is very comfortable and modern, only quibble might be there are a fair number of cobwebs around, assuming because the beams and ceiling are very high so difficult to get to. We also found the crisp packet referred to in previous reviews, which isn't great.
But overall a nice cottage to stay in and come back to, we'll definitely consider returning!

We booked this cottage fairly last minute so I didn’t read the reviews. I did however read them afterwards and have to say I agree with them all. The location is stunning with excellent walks straight from the cottage and Keswick is only a short drive away with loads of amenities. We had a great time exploring the area. The cottage is on a fairly busy road and the front door opens straight on to the road. On the particularly hot days we resorted to propping the door open with the bin to stop the dog escaping! Overall inside the cottage is comfortable but lacked some basic things which would make a big difference like coat hooks, a drying rack and a few more plates and cutlery wouldn’t go a miss. We were really disappointed with the cleanliness as there were cobwebs everywhere. I dropped something behind the bedside table and when l looked behind to retrieve it I discovered an old crisp packet and even more dust and cobwebs.
