We had a great family holiday at this lovely house. Even though the weather was a wet. Lovely location and beautiful walks from the front door or a short drive away. Owner was very helpful and answered any questions.

Hi Clare. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Mosser, even with our traditional Lakeland weather! Having the owner nearby is an added bonus at Birkbank, isn't it! I hope you'll find an opportunity to return one day!

We had a fantastic time at Birkbank. We stayed for 3 nights with the whole family for my wife’s 30th, everyone enjoyed themsleves and we hope to visit again. The home is in a remote location which is part of the beauty of the place, yet is only 10mins from cockermouth where there’s a supermarket and restaurants/ takeaways etc. The property looks to have suffered from the elements over recent time with evidence of leaks to the roof/ damp patches which require decorating and the odd door handle that requires attention but overall a comfortable stay and we will be back in future.

Hi Ryan, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your break at Birkbank. I hope your wife had a wonderful birthday celebration.
Thank you for letting me know about the damp patches and the door handles, I'll pass this on to the owners. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

We had a nice time at Birkbank, however there are a few things that could have been improved. The information was all about our nearest town Keswick which was 18 miles and a 35 minute drive!! Clearly not our nearest town. No supermarket info given and without 4G or wifi we had to find this. It was only Minutes away in cockermouth! Which is the nearest town. There is a fantastic pub called Kirkstile and I had to work out how to walk there. This should have been included! There was no wifi and no 3G or4G which made it more difficult given the very poor information booklet which was useless. The house was dusty and full of cobwebs. The furniture and bedding was not brilliant and if we did not have a handy man with us we would not have been able to operate the TV or fix the already broken door handles.

Hello Chris, Thanks for your review of Birkbank. Birkbank is located in Mosser which is described on our website as being close to Cockermouth. We are always happy to answer any questions our visitors may have about our cottages especially wifi and mobile signal as it can be challenging in some areas so that they can make an informed choice when choosing a cottage. I have passed your comments on to the owner who manages the cottage himself. Overall I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back to The Lakes very soon.
