    • “We went with all the family, and dogs. It was a wonderful holiday the cottage was beautifully clean with loads of character. The garden was great for the grandchildren and dogs. We couldn't have ask for more, even provided a cot at last minute for our grandson. Will be going back next year. Definitely a 10 out of 10.”

    • “The cottage is well equipped and perfect for our large group of eight. The garden was also beautiful with a view over Skiddaw. The owner was very helpful providing advice on local attractions as well as recommending the Sun Inn, a local pub.”

    • “The photos really don't do Low Kiln Hill justice! Spacious, clean, well equipped, cozy...the list is endless. There were six of us and two Labradors so space inside and out was critical, and we weren't disappointed. The gardens are well tendered with superb views up to Skiddaw and down towards Catsbell. Vicki (the owner) couldn't do enough; even to the point of putting up some temporary barricades in the rain to keep one of our dogs from picking all of the apples off the trees! Some of the reviews commented on the lack of shower but a new, permanent, one has now been fitted over the bath. One feature not shown in the photos is the kitchen - large, well equipped, large porch for muddy boots and the cleanest oven I have ever seen. If you are planning on staying in the North lakes then I would highly recommend Low Kiln Hill.”

    • “Perfect - lots of space - large living area and well equipped kitchen. The garden was ideal for our family group - large grassy area for ball games, chairs and table for outside eating with spectacular back drop of Skiddaw. Owners very welcoming and helpful - generous provision of logs for wood fires. Nb The taller members of the family had to duck with the low door frames!”

    • “Very well equipped cottage with space for 8 to holiday together in comfort. Excellent views, car parking and stacks of games, books and local information provided. Our party had 4 adults, 4 children and 1 dof, great garden and far enough off road not to worry about children playing outside. Would stay again!”

    • “This cottage was our second choice as the first was cancelled due to flooding. But this cottage defiantly wasn't second best. It had everything we needed & more. We was shown around when we arrived & told where everything was & how to use shower & other equipment Due to the hot weather there was quite a lot of flies ( not just in the cottage but also in other establishments we visited.) when we mentioned it to the owner she went out of her way to get us some fly Swotters. The view from the garden was fabulous & our 2 dogs had a great time running round..”

    • “We stayed in the house for a week in September and really enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and comfortable and had a lovely garden with incredible views out to Skiddaw. The only drawback is that there is only one bathroom, without a shower, however there was 7 of us and we coped fine. It's close to Keswick and the Sun inn (a miles walk away) was a lovely little place to relax with a local ale after a hard days hiking!”

    • “Our stay at low kiln was perfect. We go to the lakes every year with our two dogs and meet family from Scotland. This years stay was exceptional not only because of the lovely weather but also because of where low kiln is situated. The house is lovely - although maybe a new shower is in order if you have 6 staying-but the gardens were absolutely beautiful, and we spent lots of time enjoying the views. We could not have wished for a better host who could not have been more helpful. I would thoroughly recommend low kiln.”

    • “Fantastic location, overlooking the back of Skiddaw, breakfast in the garden. Enjoyed the Wood Burning stove, not often you get a fire in a holiday let. Good sized living room and all the bedrooms were of a decent size. Owner lives next door, which was helpful. Not a drop of rain all week.”

    • “We loved this place - As above & it also had amazing views in the garden. Pop in the car and your 10 minutes from Keswick and plenty of other things we didn't get around to. The only 'problem' was the fast road it was on - but you could get off it in a minute of walking to find a wonderful circuit to walk/cycle.”

Regional Information

BASSENTHWAITE Keswick 8 miles; Cockermouth 9 miles. An attractive village in the Northern Lakes, Bassenthwaite lies just a short distance to the north east of Bassenthwaite Lake, and retains its traditional rural feel, with a stream flowing gently on the outskirts, whitewashed Lakeland cottages, a pleasant vllage green and a real ale inn full of character! Bassenthwaite Lake itself, while boasting gentler scenery than others in the region, is still one of the most picturesque places in England. Places of interest nearby include Mirehouse, a grand house and gardens on the shores of the Lake with small open-air theatre (reputedly frequented by poets such as Tennyson and Wordsworth), LAke District Wildlife Park, and Dodd Wood. Most of the attractions of the Lake District are within easy reach and the quieter Northern Fells are almost on the doorstep. The nearby towns of Cockermouth and Keswick, both have weekly markets and offer a good range of amenities. The scenery of the Yorkshire Dales is within touring distance, as is the city of Carlisle and Hadrians Wall country.
