Lovely location, 20 minute into Keswick. Plenty of pub/restaurants and local shops. Easy access to the Lake District attractions.

A lovely cottage. Had to leave a day early because of the weather, but no reflection on the cottage. Would stay there again any time.

My wife & I had a great 2 weeks in the Shieling, good location for getting around the whole area
although not the easiest drive to pull out of so care is required . Pat supplied a very useful welcome basket ,the equipment supplied was excellent so would return if back in that area. The
cottage is a 1 mile walk in to wonderful Keswick passing the Twa dogs Inn ( worth a visit ).

If we were to be a bit picky the mattress could with replacing as it rolls to the middle .

Hello Stephen, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm delighted you had a lovely holiday - The Shieling is a real home from home isn't it? You couldn't have picked a better location for exploring the beautiful Lakes. How lovely of the owner to supply a welcome basket - always a lovely start to the holiday! Thank you also for your feedback regarding the mattress, I will look into this further. I hope you will return to the Lakes for your next holiday very soon.
