Excellent accommodation and very well equipped. Plenty of room to spread out. Warm utility room to dry out wet jackets and boots was a bonus! Lovely views (when not being battered by Storm Dennis) and walks from the door. Can only give an overall score of 9.5 as we had to bring our own towels (a very trivial matter I know but most self-catering properties nowadays provide towels). Would highly recommend property!

Hello Sue, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It's a gem of a cottage, isn't it? The views are exquisite! I can't think of anywhere else better to be when Storm Dennis made his presence felt! You couldn't have picked a better location for getting out and about on some great walks. I'm thrilled you had a great time and I hope you will plan a return visit to the beautiful Lakes very soon.

We loved our stay at The Retreat. The photos are an accurate representation of the property. The house was very comfortable, well equipped and had amazing views of the fells, fields and sheep! Keswick is also a very short drive away. The village of Thornthwaite is also very pretty and there are a few local pubs in Braithwaite just up the road. The weather was very mixed but this didn't spoil our stay - it would have been lovely though to see the views when it was bright and sunny. We will definitely go and stay there again and would highly recommend this property.
