    • “The Wow factor”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “My extended family and I stayed here for our annual walking holiday in the Lakes. The photographs on the web site don't do it justice and it has to be seen to be believed. The property is very luxurious and the kitchen is to die for and has everything that a family of eight could possibly want. All of the bedrooms and bathrooms were very high spec, as indeed was the entire property. The biggest Wow came from us all when we walked into the lounge and saw the stunning views of Skiddaw , Catbells and all the surrounding hills and fells. It was breath taking and to see all the lights of Keswick below us at night time was just magical. My 6 year old Granddaughter was in fact we all were . Over 30 odd years I have rented many properties for us all but this was the best of the best and I would not hesitate to recommend it. Booked it through Lakes Cottage holidays and the team there were also very informative and professional.”

    • “This cottage was of the highest standard and most comfortable and very large. Well situated for travelling, walking and the Town Centre. The area was quite and the view from the veranda was breathtaking. The bedrooms were large and comfortable. Bathrooms a plenty and the Kitchen was extremely well stock with equipment and utensils. I can comfortable say we will stay again in this superb accommodation and most certainly recommend it to all.”

    • “Excellent venue for a get together!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Our children planned this holiday for our ruby wedding anniversary as we all love the lakes. There were 2 children and 6 adults, the venue was fantastic, where everyone had their own area if they wanted to get away from each other! The house had everything we wanted and more. The views were fantastic and most of the walks we did were available from the house. The week we were there the weather was fantastic (which helped), in fact too hot on occasions! There is no umbrella on the terrace (which we found out from previous reviews) so took our own which was very helpful each night. Yes the walk up from Keswick was hard, but also a good work out!! You do get a free parking ticket for the car park, which helps. All in all a very good time was had by all.”

    • “Great expectations”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Booking was straight forward, friendly professional staff to hand to help and advise. Accomodation exceeded our expectaions on all fronts. Clean, spacoius, excellent views from the sun balcony. Private location but within walking distance of Keswick. Car parking was off road but I think you would struggle to with more than 2 reasonably sized cars. Slope down to garage is to avoided at all costs. Gardens were a delight. Tvs in Bedrooms would be welcomed. Would book again and recommend to friends.”

    • “What a view!!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The cottage is in an excellent location on Chestnut Hill with spectacular views across to Skiddaw and Keswick from the balcony terrace or the enormous picture window in the lounge (it truly makes you go wow!!!) It takes about 20 - 30 mins to walk to/from Keswick centre. (a bit of a drag on the way back uphill). The cottage has been done up to a very high spec and has a feel of a boutique hotel. The bedrooms are spacious (2 being en-suite) and the open plan living room/kitchen is perfect for group meals/living. The attached garage is useful for storing bikes / walking gear and there is a useful utility room with washing machine. The cottage has pretty much everything you will ever need in it; fully kitted out kitchen with coffee machine (Braun, Tassimo), wine fridge, utensils etc. The lounge has a flat screen TV and DVD player (not that you'll want to watch TV with a view like you get here!!) The terrace has a charcoal BBQ and there are BBQ tools. The beds are comfortable with nice linen and towells are provided. The only negative is that the garden is a little bit on the small side, if that's important to you. However, you have the whole of the Lakes to play in, so not a massive issue. This is a fantastic cottage in a great location and i highly recommend it for a family or group of friends who want a luxurious place to stay. (We stayed with 6 adults and 3 children comfortably).”

    • “Cloud End is the perfect house for a group of friends to enjoy a weeks holiday walking in the Lake District. The central location enabled us to walk CatBells, Scarfell Pike, and Walla Cragg. The scenary from the large window in the lounge is breathtaking, Cloud End is the best appointed house we have ever stayed in and it met the needs of all eight of us. Keswick is a pretty town with lots of shops suitable for walkers plus Booths the rather upmarket supermarket. The scenary in the Lakes is breathtaking especially when snow is on the fells and the sun is shining, the Derwent Water Ferry is ideally situated for either a trip around the water or to hop on and off in different locations following a walk, just check the timetable and hail the ferry. Parking in Keswick is expensive but a permit is available in the house. Grasmere and ambleside are also well worth visiting especially Sarah Nelsons Gingerbread in Grasmere. All in all a fantastic holiday and we will certainly be returning to the Lake District and using Lake Cottage Holidays again.”

    • “Having stayed at many holiday homes across the UK we were blown away by the quality of Cloud End. Not only is it well laid out, it is also very well equipped. Its a little further out of Keswick town centre than we would normally stay but it is worth the extra walk. Can't wait to go back again”

    • “Very clean, well maintained holiday house. Very spacious and great comunal areas. Lovely balcony with views over Keswick and surrounding area - lovely for sitting out - got the sun quite alot. Rooms decorated to a high standard with good amenities. Lovely bathroom and kitchen facilities. Only slight downside was location. It's not that close to the town centre as right on the edge of Keswick. The nearest pub/shop is a good 10-15 minutes downhill. I think it would be a bit longer than a 15 minute walk into town and then a steep climb back up. However, don't let that put you off if you are happy to walk or drive. There is plenty of car parking in Keswick and the house is ideally located for exploring the surrounding areas - Grasmere, Ambleside, Windermere etc.”

    • “Taking the whole deal, it was ideal for the Convention in Skiddaw street & very adequate in every aspect. Located as it was with buses outside the road & not too far to walk into Keswick. getting back more of a challenge because of it's uphill location! The only thing which caused us a problem was the failure of one of the shower room fans & the lack of any action to repair in spite of repeated requests. We did have a very good week.”

    • “We are a regular visitor to Cloud End. It is a beautiful house with fabulous views. It is convenient for local facilities in Keswick and an ideal base for exploring the Lake District.”

    • “The cottage was really well equipped and really comfortable. Fantastic views and made for a really good family holiday.”

    Mrs Basketfield, Reading, July 2018

    • “Cloud End is a lovely property & we had really good holiday. The house is very well equipped & has all the comforts of home. We were three couples & although there are only two king size beds, ( the other two of the bedrooms are twins ), the beds could easily be pushed together with minimal effort. The ground floor living space is open plan with fabulous view over Keswick & beyond. We were fortunate to have a week of hot & sunny weather & could eat outside on the balcony where there is a bbq & table & chairs. The house was spotlessly clean & welcoming & we immediately felt at home as soon as we walked in. The only possible drawback to some people may be that it’s on the outskirts of Keswick. It’s an easy walk downhill all the way but a bit more testing going back up ! Keswick is a great base to explore the whole area with lots of great walking & pubs ! We had a lovely holiday & would love to return.”

    Miss Parsons, Bath, May 2018

    • “This is truly a home away from home. Fully equipped means just that. A view that’s difficult to beat on a terrace that seems to catch the sun all day. A wonderful property to spend a holiday in the Northern Laked.”

    Mr Neville, Darlington, May 2018

    • “A fantastic house that was incredibly well equipped. The layout of two double en suites and two twins make it perfect for 2 families. The views from the lounge window are amazing and we will definitely look to book this again if considering Keswick. It must be beautiful in summer and being able to sit out on the balcony for breakfast etc.”
