We all loved this cottage and would happily stay there again at any time of year. As there was a lot of rain at first the games barn was a tremendous help.

Riggs cottage was perfect for our needs. Very well-equipped, comfortable and spacious. A spacious well-equipped kitchen. Good provision of books and games as well as TV etc.
The games barn with is a great feature as is the built-in brick barbecue. Lovely garden as well. The welcome bottle of wine and mint cake was a very nice touch.
The mattress in the ensuite double room was too soft for us but we switched to the other double room which was fine and one of the kids had the ensuite.
There is a washing machine and a tumble dryer. One point for improvement - we couldn't find a clothes airer indoors or a washing line outdoors - even though there was a bag of clothes pegs.
The cottage is in a beautiful and quiet location within easy driving distance of Keswick, Cockermouth and plenty of beautiful walks.
There is a folder of walk guides for walks from the cottage.
Overall, we were very happy as it suited our needs very well.

Hi David, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, it's a lovely place for a relaxing break isn't it? The games barn is a real bonus, perfect for the occasional wet day we get in the Lakes! Thanks for your feedback about the airer/clothes line, I'll take a look. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.
