It was a beautiful cottage, nicely located in our favourite village of Keswick!
The rooms and beds were comfortable, living space was nice and open!
Will defo be coming back

We have stayed in many dog-friendly holiday homes in Keswick and this is one of the best and we happily recommend it.
The downstairs is spacious with a light and bright open plan lounge/dining room well furnished and with a super map wall. The tv is limited with only a few freeview channels and the house could really do with a basic smart tv so guests can have a better choice of programmes.
The kitchen is great with good equipment. A few smaller bowls and a decent set of cutlery would be appreciated and enhance the facilities.
The 4 bedrooms are spacious and generally well furnished, and the 3 bathrooms are all good. Bedding is good quality but having to make space to bring your own towels is disappointing.
There is no parking but we always managed to park within 100m if the house.
There is a small but sunny back yard with a table and 4 chairs. We were blessed with a sunny week but found the outside chairs very uncomfortable so weren’t able to enjoy drinks in the yard.
So overall this is a great base to explore Keswick and beyond. A few extras as mentioned could improve our score to 10/10. We will be happy to book Skimming Stones again.

Hi Gill, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so pleased the cottage exceeded your expectations. It's a real home from home isn't it? I hope you had a wonderful wedding! Here's to lots more adventures in the Lakes!
