The cottage was lovely and everything we needed was provided. The owner left a lovely welcome basket which we appreciated. The only reason we have dropped marks is that the bedroom faces onto a very busy road. If you can sleep with the window closed it’s fine as it is double glazed but we like an open window at night and the traffic can’t roaring past from 5:30pm onwards, we appreciate that there is nothing the owner can do about this but it definitely affected our sleep

Hi Joanne - it really is a lovely cottage isn't it? And a welcome basket on arrival too - how fabulous! Sorry to hear the traffic noise bothered you - I would love to welcome you back to one of our more remote cottages in the future.

Cottage above a garage. Bedroom on main road side and traffic noise was apparent. Could do with noise reductions double glazing. Overall cottage was a good base to explore Keswick and beyond.
