    • “I booked this cottage as a surprise for my wife's 30th birthday. I wanted somewhere with great views of the Lake District and convenient access to the lakes main tourist locations. Being just outside Keswick (about 15 mins walk in) there are plenty of nearby facilities, pubs and restaurants, as well as being positioned just below Skiddaw, an excellent mountain climb (around 4 hours round trip). The cottage itself is surprisingly spacious with a very comfortable bedroom that faces out into the beautiful garden, with very modern en-suite and shower. The kitchen is very well stocked with utensils and there's a great little utility room at the back which comes in handy for extra storage. Ken and Jenny are extremely helpful and accommodating owners, who gave us several great recommendations and even a lift into town on our final night! Would definitely return - highly recommended. P.S. Sorry it has taken so long to write a review!”

    • “As regular visitors to The Lake District we decided to make a change with a visit to Cragside Cottage for a week in March this year. We were not disappointed. The accommodation is superb and the location gives one of the finest views in the area down the borrow dale valley.”

    • “This is an exceptional property which exceeded our expectations in every way. Absolutely beautiful views matched with truly luxurious accomodation. The cottage was immaculately clean and very well equipped, with the standard of equipment being extremely high. This is one of the few occasions where the photos in the advert are a true representation of the actual property. This, and the owners house next door, are the only properties in the vicinity. There are therefore lovely views in all directions. The cottage has it's own private patio area and there are also many other secluded seating areas throughout the gardens available for use. It's about a mile and a half outside of Keswick centre so far enough away to be out of the crowds (and get the great views) but close enough to be able to get into Keswick very easily. Perfect really.”

    • “5 Star is how I would best describe Cragside Cottage. The furnishings and decor are beautiful and lovely quality with everything that you could ask for. The large garden is kept immaculate and it was such a pleasure to sit and watch the birds on the many feeders dotted around the grounds. Jenny (the owner) is just next door and made us so welcome during our stay. We hope to return soon.”

    Mr Doe, Bishop's Stortford, September 2018

    • “Everything about Cragside Cottage was absolutely amazing. The owner went above and beyond the specifications in the description. They thought of everything required down to smaller items like corkscrew, potato peeler, salt and pepper. The list goes on. And to top it all everything was immaculate plus the extensive garden where a sight to behold.”

    Mrs Rattigan, St Helens, August 2018

    • “Cragside is a great cottage just a mile outside Keswick. The lounge was a highlight for me with great views over the hills and also a place to sit and watch birds visit the garden. The cottage is freshly decorated and well equipped throughout, the electric boot warmer/ dryer was a thoughtful addition after a few rainy walks.”

    Mr Bell, Ampthill, August 2018

    • “Cragside Cottage must be one of the best holiday let’s in the UK.......the panoramic views of Grizedale......Grassmoor......Catbells is simply stunning. This cottage is ultra comfortable and ideally situated to explore the Lake District.”

    Mr Maddison, Hengoed, March 2018

    • “This is a beautiful cottage but is really an annexe of a large house as it is attached. Also we found it quite noisy as it is situated on a busy main road. However it is very well equipped and the gardens are lovely. The views are spectacular .”
