A great getaway cottage within touching distance of Keswick. Very high quality finishes and furnishings with plenty of space in the communal areas. We hope to visit again soon!

Hi Mark, it sounds like you had a great time at Garden Cottage. It's a lovely place for a get together with family or friends isn't it? And like you say Keswick is just down the road, bonus! Until next time.

We were a party of 8 with the oldest in her 80's so the downstairs bedrooms were great . The cottage was well equipped and comfortable .There were a couple of issues .the sofas were very low so our aunt couldn't get on or off them so had to use a garden chair . One of the showers would no drain away but was fixed very quickly after one phone call . The location was good with easy access to walks and all the lakes .

Hi Robina, thank you for your review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Garden Cottage. It's the perfect place for a get together with family or friends isn't it? And the Gardens are stunning. I'm pleased to hear the problem with the shower was fixed quickly for you. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

Great location and just a short walk down to Bassenthwaite lake. Large property and comfortable enough for our party of 8. The drive up to the house passes a couple of ponds which was nice. Loads of parking space for more than 4 cars. Large garden with plenty of green space. Reasonable amount of equipment in the kitchen and bedrooms comfortable enough with towels provided. The whole place is starting to look a little tired in places so could do with a bit of a refresh. When we arrived we had to get the hoover out as cobwebs everywhere and also the garden furniture was all over the place so had to 'tidy' up before others arrived. As others have mentioned the water pressure is a problem so staggering showers is a must. Generally a large comfortable cottage in a great location, just needs a bit of extra effort and presentation to make it a fantastic place to stay.

Hello Neil, Many thanks for your review of Garden Cottage. Thornthwaite is a lovely, quiet area that is still handy for Keswick. Since your stay we have replaced the cleaning team, however, we would have been happy to arrange for a cleaner to come out to the cottage and address any issues that you had if we had been aware of them at the time. I hope you will be returning to the beautiful English Lake District very soon.
