Great facilities well equipped for staying in the cottage, ideal location for friendly local pub, and walking should that be your wish, also a very helpful owner.
Keep up the great work team Sally's Cottages.

Hello Kevin, I love getting feedback like this - thank you so much! It's a lovely place for a relaxing break, isn't it? The location is hard to beat! It's always a bonus having a pub close by on holiday, be it for a drink or some delicious pub grub. Come back any time, you can be sure of a very warm welcome.

We had a lovely stay at the Parrock. The location of the property is perfect, with the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere, but Keswick just a short drive away. Martin was very welcoming and showed us around when we arrived, and had left some special Christmas touches which was lovely. Our cocker spaniel puppy loved his first Christmas holiday, the garden is great for dogs to explore and he loved watching the birds out of the lounge window!
We were a party of 5 adults and 1 dog, and the property was plenty big enough. Our only criticism would be that the downstairs main bedroom could do with a new mattress (or there’s room for a king size bed!), but we still slept well after long days out walking. The kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed to cook our Christmas dinner. The large hallway is very useful for storing coats and boots.
Thank you Martin and Susan, we had a really great Christmas week at the Parrock.

Hello Heather, Thank you for your review. How wonderful to spend Christmas in the Lakes - there really is no better place to be. The Parrock is a real gem, isn't it? I'm thrilled you met the wonderful owners' - how thoughtful of them to leave some special Christmas touches. You couldn't have picked a better location to escape from the hustle and bustle for a while and get out and about on some great walks. Sounds like your puppy had an absolute blast - the Lakes is perfect for dogs. I can confirm that all mattresses in The Parrock are medium-firm, hotel grade. I'm delighted you had a really great Christmas holiday and I hope you made lots of wonderful memories. Here's to the next holiday in the Lakes!

The Parrock is in a lovely rural location with a mill stream running through the garden. It is close enough to be able to access Derwentwater and Cat Bells on foot. Facilities are excellent, well equipped kitchen and comfortable dual aspect lounge. Very useful large hall area to keep boots and coats. Martin and Sue the hosts are lovely and very helpful. I would highly recommend.
