Easily the best Lake District holiday cottage we have ever stayed in and we have been going to the Lakes for a long time and spend a lot of time there. A perfect location, quiet but a short drive from Keswick, Penrith, Ullswater etc. The Swallows is a lovingly and beautifully restored property, tastefully furnished with every amenity you could wish for. Even the dog had his own chest full of goodies ! We had a fabulous week - the weather was not great but we still managed to walk for four days out of six but what was lovely was coming back to the Swallows after a windy and rainy days on the fells, lighting the wood burner and relaxing in a super house. We will definitely be booking again. Thank you Sue & Terry.

Hi Jill, Brian and Dylan, thank you so much for your lovely feedback! I'm so pleased you had a lovely week, it's the perfect place for a relaxing break isn't it? I'm glad you didn't let the weather spoil your fun. I bet it was a real treat coming home to that cosy woodburner after a day out in the fresh Lakes air!
I hope you can plan a return visit soon, you can be sure of a warm welcome.

This is a fantastic cottage that is very luxurious and beautiful. The owners are lovely and made sure all was ok. This is a wonderful location particularly for cycling however wonderful area for walking. It was so good we almost want to keep it a secret so we can book again . If there was a score higher than 10 this would get it!

An absolutely outstanding cottage. Easily the best we have ever stayed in. Beautifully fitted out in every room. Hard to say which was the best, but sitting in the upstairs lounge after dinner in front of the log burner was a real treat. Lovely enclosed garden with quality garden furniture. An absolute credit to the owners. Will definitely return
