Great Ayton GB Family
This was our first Christmas away from home and what a Christmas! On arrival at the cottage on a cold winters night there was a Christmas tree in the window to light our way and the heating was on to warm us straight up, after a food delivery from Asda we got right into the Christmas spirit with carol singers! A perfect start to our week!

As to the cottage itself, we have stayed before so were already familiar with the layout although it was a few years ago and there have been some improvements. Everything you could need was available the kids loved having the house to play hide and seek in and the dogs loved the garden to run around in. The location is perfect loads of walking on the doorstep, Keswick and all its amenities is just a short drive away, leaving you with a quiet and peaceful cottage away from it all! Views from all the windows made washing up not so much of a chore!

There were tears when it came time to leave and not just from the kids! Thank you Crag Lea for a truly memorable Christmas we will be back again x

Hi Helen! I can't think of a better Christmas than one in the Borrowdale valley, so I'm really pleased to hear it all went so well with you at Crag Lea! You sound to have had the perfect time and I do hope you can come again before too long!

Grill pan wasn't cleaned. House very cold took a bit to get warm heating system strange one you had to override it all the time. Two beds not made up. But rest of house was clean. You need to sort out that Hoover it stunk when you used it. Would I stay here again maybe.. when you got the log fire going it was lovely. Brilliant views from every window that I can't moan about stunning.

Thanks for your helpful feedback, Stephen. I've passed your comments on to the owners for their attention. Crag Lea is in a fabulous location and as you say, the views and the log fire make it a great place to stay! I hope you got some walks in Borrowdale while you were here - and maybe enjoyed the tail end of the autumn colours! Till the next time!

The cottage is in a fabulous location with amazing views and many walks from the house. It was warm cosy and clean. It had all the amenities such as washing machine and tumble drier and a lovely wood burning stove. Would recommend.
